Fight fans across the Tri-State area have their arrangements booked and plans set for Saturday evening April 1st as Abella Boxing Promotions presents Bergen County Fight Night 3 at The Terrace & Biagio’s Ristorante in Paramus, New Jersey.
Promoted by Scott Abella, the electrifying event, highlighting professional boxers out of New Jersey and New York, includes an eight-fight card: four-six-rounders (6) and four-four-rounders (4) – (SUBJECT TO CHANGE).
Featured in the slate of potential six-rounders, the undefeated, and ascending boxing star, Raymond “The Scientist” Cuadrado, will put his 5-0-0 record up on the line against Usiel Hernandez (2-1-0) in a junior lightweight bout (scheduled at 135 lbs).
Standing at 5’9, Cuadrado, fighting out of Ridgewood, Queens, NY, has become a lethal prospect for boxing fans to zone in on. With the well-known alias of “The Scientist”, he made his pro-debut back in April of 2021 and gained a superb following after his Bergen County Fight Night 2 performance in July of 2022, presented by Abella Boxing.
“It’s just a great energy between the promoter, and staff members,” Cuadrado said about returning on an Abella Boxing Promotions card. “The environment, and being close to home, so my hometown supporters can always show up and show love at the events.”

The 26-year-old continues to climb the ranks with his dynamic versatility in the ring and plans to add to his resume on Saturday night April 1st.
“I’m always looking one step ahead, thinking one step ahead,” Cuadrado said. “Making sure everything is right where I want it every single time.”
He added: “I’m just coming stronger, and I’m ready to display new skills that people haven’t seen out of me before. Constantly thinking of leveling up.”
For sure, an elite type of mindset, but what connects Cuadrado’s demeanor to “leveling up,” varies among many, if not, all within the boxing spectrum. You see, when Cuadrado finds the time and isn’t in the gym, he utilizes his skills as an avid video game streamer on Twitch.
“Whenever I’m able to, I try to stream on Twitch, just to have some fun with the community, and try to build a fanbase there, if possible,” Cuadrado noted.
“It’s always nice when you see two interesting groups collaborating, so, that’s what I try to do with boxing and video games. Have fun with it, bring one community into another by trying to bridge that gap.”
Furthermore, Cuadrado remains growing his fanbase bout by bout and is expected to have a massive group of supporters traveling from across the NY/NJ region to attend Bergen County Fight Night 3.
“I’m happy to see new people become fans, and purchase tickets,” he said. “Seeing not only new faces, but more faces fill out the seats just to come out and support me is always a good feeling. As I continue to grow as a fighter, it’s only gonna reach a bigger fanbase.”
Additionally, Bergen County Fight Night 3 will mark Cuadrado’s first pro-bout of six rounds as well as his heaviest, scheduled at 135 lbs. But, with that said, he’s all set to go, awaiting the calendar to strike Saturday, April 1st.
“Now that we’re doing six rounds, I’m more than ready to take it all the way, if need be, but, if I can take the knockout early, that’s a big goal as well.”
