Paradise Back in the Fight

World class boxing now has a Bronx venue. Promoter Cedric Kushner joined former champions Roberto Duran and Iran Barkley at the recently restored Loew’s Paradise Theater on the Grand Concourse, to announce boxing matches lined up for Dec. 9. Featured boxers include Bronx prospects Jorge Teron, and Maureen Shea, who helped train actress Hillary Swank for her Oscar winning role in “Million Dollar Baby.” The nine-bout card will also feature Mike Achando (25-1) against Antonio Ramirez (28-7). Latin musicians and the Caliente Dancers will be entertaining the crowd between fights. The show will be taped for a Christmas weekend broadcast on Fox Sports en Español.
