Star Boxing comes to Queens

Boxing in the borough may never be the same. Star Boxing is bringing professional boxing to the famous Carnesecca Arena at St. John’s University in Queens on Saturday, May 7.

Star Boxing CEO Joe DeGuarida said he is excited to be partnering with such a prestigious institution as St. John’s University to bring boxing to the Carnesecca Arena for the first time ever.

“The Queens boxing culture represents a no-nonsense, bite down mentality which will be showcased in the ring come May 7,” DeGuardia said. “Be sure to grab your tickets now for what will be a thrilling night of fights.”

The fight card for the event will include a four-round light heavyweight showdown between New York’s own Emanuel Etienne against Tunde Fatiregun of New Jersey, the pro debut of former two-time New York Ring Masters (formally “Golden Gloves”) Champion Ronny Reyes, and more to be announced.

“St. John’s University is excited to work with Star Boxing to bring boxing to historic Carnesecca Arena this May,” Scott Lemperle, executive director of conference and auxiliary services at St. John’s University said.

Tickets for “Borough Boxing” are on sale now and can be purchased online at or via Ticketmaster. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and fists will fly at around 7:30 p.m.
