Brooklyn contender, Frank Galarza, to face top Dominican super welterweight Carlos Adames in the ring on Saturday, April 20th. Adames (16-0, 12 KO) is one of Top Rank’s rising stars, a 24-year-old former prominent amateur with a strong punch. Galarza (20-2-2, 12 KO) had been undefeated until he stepped into the ring with Jarrett Hurd and walked away with his first loss, followed by a majority decision loss to Ishe Smith. Things have taken a turn for the better again and with a three-fight winning streak, Galarza is ready to take on Adames.
“There is no better place for this fight to be than at The Garden,” Galarza said. “It’s a dream come true for me. I’m ready to show the world what I’m really made of. Carlos and I both are ranked in the top 15 in the WBO. He is coming to my backyard, and it’s going to be a great fight.”
“I am thrilled and proud to fight at Madison Square Garden once again. It is a great honor to be in action on such a big stage and on an important card like this one,” Adames said. “I have a new trainer, Robert Garcia, and we are working on a lot of new things. This will be the new era of ‘Caballo Bronco.’ Frank Galarza is a good, experienced fighter. I know he has faced good opposition and that he is training hard for this fight. It will be a very interesting fight because he will be battling against someone that wants to be one of the greats in the sport. I’m coming to make noise in the 154-pound division.”
On April 20th both Galarza and Adames will have the spotlight to put it all out there and see who will walk away victorious.
