Undefeated Forestville, MD junior middleweight Alantez "Sly Aza" Fox returns to action on Saturday, September 22 as he takes on fellow undefeated boxer Frank Galarza of Brooklyn, NY in an eight-round bout for the vacant USA New York State Junior Middleweight title. The bout will be held at the Resorts World Casino in Queens, NY.
The New York title is not a state title in the strictest sense of the definition. Many years ago, the NY title was considered a world title, although that is not the case at this point.
Fox (7-0, three KO's) has not fought since winning a four-round unanimous decision over Fitzgerald Johnson on February 17 in Nutley, NJ. Galarza (7-0, four KO's) has scored TKO's in his last three bouts. Neither man has fought in an eight-round contest before.
