NEW YORK STARS STEVENS AND MURIQI TO HEADLINE HAVOC BOXING ON NOVEMBER 20 AT
THE AVIATOR SPORTS COMPLEX IN BROOKLYN

*HUGE NIGHT OF BOXING FEATURING FUTURE WORLD CHAMPIONS IN BROOKLYN; PRESS
CONFERENCE NOVEMBER 17TH AT PORTEBELLOS IN NYC*

Two of the most recognizable names in the New York boxing scene in recent memory will headline a giant night of world
class boxing on Saturday November 20th at the Aviator Sports Complex in
Brooklyn, New York World ranked Super Middleweight Curtis “Showtime” Stevens, and perennial
Light Heavyweight contender Elvir Muriqi will headline the show that is
promoted by Robert Diaz and Havoc Boxing Promotions.

Stevens, of the boxing hotbed of the Brownsville section of Brooklyn is one
of the most feared punchers in the Super Middleweight division and has a
record of 21-3 with fifteen knockouts.

Stevens started out his career as one of the most ballyhooed prospects in
boxing as he racked up thirteen straight victories with eleven knockouts.
After suffering a controversial stoppage defeat to veteran Marcos Primera,
Stevens scored a eight round unanimous decision in the rematch that took
place four months later.

After winning four consecutive bouts, Stevens dropped a ten round unanimous
decision to former U.S. Olympian Andre Dirrell in a bout that was shown on
HBO.

Stevens went on to win four consecutive bouts which included a three round
pounding over then undefeated Piotr Wilczewski (22-0) in front of
predominantly Polish crowd in Newark, New Jersey.

In Stevens last bout, he came out strong before dropping a twelve round
unanimous decision to former member of the Contender Jesse Brinkley (34-5)
in an IBF title elimination bout on January 29 in Brinkley’s hometown of
Reno, Nevada.

Stevens currently ranked number five by the IBF.

Muriqi of New York via Kosovo has a record of 37-5 with twenty-three
knockouts and will be back in the ring after a thirteen month layoff.

Muriqi won his first thirteen bouts before suffering a suffering
controversial loss to Dan Sheehan on March 24, 2000.

Muriqi went on to win seventeen straight fights which included signature
victories over Sam Ahmad (16-2-3) & Tony Menefee (77-19-1).

After a run where Muriqi went 4-2, he challenged former undisputed Light
heavyweight champion Antonio Tarver.

Muriqi fought a valiant fight against the heavily favored Tarver only to
fall short by a razor thin majority decision.

Muriqi has gone 3-1 since with his only defeat being a twelve round
unanimous decision to former world champion Clinton Woods in Woods hometown
in England.

Muriqi is on a two fight winning streak with his latest outing being a
2ndround stoppage over Tiwon Taylor on October 10, 2009 in Greensboro,
North
Carolina.
