Stacked Night Of Action Takes Place Tuesday, February 20 from Wayne State Fieldhouse in Detroit & Streamed Live on DAZN

Salita Promotions is rolling out the big guns for the broadcast team at the debut “Big Time Boxing USA” event, set to light up the Wayne State Fieldhouse in Detroit this Tuesday, February 20, with all the action streaming live on DAZN.

Leading the charge is the former world champ and sharp fight commentator Raul Marquez, known in the ring as “El Diamante,” teaming up with Detroit’s own boxing sage SugarHill Steward as special guest analyst. Adding to the mix is the seasoned play-by-play man Corey Erdman, known for his knack for calling a fight as it unfolds. The live stream is set to kick off at 8 p.m. ET.

Marquez, who once ruled the 154-pound division and represented the U.S. in the 1992 Olympics, has carved out a reputation for his bilingual analysis chops on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING and SHOBox: The Next Generation. Steward, who’s got boxing royalty in his blood as the nephew of the legendary trainer Emmanuel Steward, currently steers the ship for WBC Heavyweight World Champion Tyson Fury. Erdman, meanwhile, brings his own clout as a commentator and writer, with his voice gracing platforms like DAZN, ESPN, CBS, and NBC.

Dmitriy Salita, the big boss at Salita Promotions, is buzzing about this lineup, confident they’ll deliver top-notch insights with Steward’s champion-making eye, Marquez’s inside-the-ring experience, and Erdman’s deep knowledge. The event is more than just a fight night; it’s a showcase aimed at spotlighting boxing’s rising stars.

Topping the bill is a 10-rounder with Michigan pride on the line, as Flint’s Ardreal Holmes Jr. puts his USBA Super Welterweight Championship up for grabs against Detroit’s Marlon Harrington. Not to be overshadowed, the co-main event sees Ali Izmailov, the unbeaten USBA Light Heavyweight Champion, squaring off with Britton Norwood.
