Echoing these sentiments, Gor Yeritsyan stated, “I’m raring to fight in Madison Square Garden, the boxing world’s crown jewel.

Freddie Roach, adding a historical perspective, emphasized, “Madison Square Garden isn’t merely ‘special’ – it’s legendary. Icons like Joe Louis, Muhammad Ali, and Katie Taylor have graced this arena. The dream of every boxer is to follow in these legends’ footsteps. Gor recognizes the gravitas of this opportunity, and I believe he will make a lasting mark.”

2023 has been a standout year for Gor Yeritsyan, registering two emphatic second-round KOs. He took down title contender Gustavo David Vittori in June and followed it up with a sensational win over Rogelio Jun Dolinguez in August, both to the roar of fans at Commerce Casino.

On the other side, Luis Alberto Veron isn’t a stranger to New York’s boxing circuit. His gripping bout against contender Brian Ceballo in April 2023 turned many heads. His rich eight-year professional journey includes bouts against top-contender names like Alexis Rocha and Michael McKinson.

The November 9 gala has more in store. An eight-round light heavyweight bout features Undefeated Umar Dzambekov (7-0, 5 KOs) clashing with Frederic ‘The French Revolution’ Julan (13-2, 10 KOs). The lightweight division sees Cain Sandoval (10-0, 10 KOs) going up against Wesley ‘El Bongocero’ Ferrer (17-1-1, 8 KOs) in an eight-rounder.

Stay tuned, as more exhilarating fights for the event will be unveiled soon.

Prediction: Yeritsyan’s impeccable record and Veron’s experience promise a showdown filled with strategy and skill. While Yeritsyan’s training with Freddie Roach might give him the upper hand, Veron’s experience against top contenders can’t be overlooked. Yeritsyan via late KO.
