UNBEATEN PROSPECTS JOHN KARL SOSA, D'MITRIUS BALLARD AND LAMONT ROACH JR. KICK OFF NON-TELEVISED PORTION OF "BROOKLYN BRAWL: LEMIEUX VS. ROSADO" AT BARCLAYS CENTER ON DEC. 6

TOP PROSPECTS EDDIE GOMEZ AND ZACHARY OCHOA REPRESENT NEW YORK CITY IN ADDITIONAL NON-TELEVISED ACTION


BROOKLYN (Dec. 5, 2014) - A host of unbeaten prospects will open the David Lemieux vs. Gabriel Rosado in the non-televised undercard on Saturday, Dec. 6 at Barclays Center as John Karl Sosa (11-0, 6 KOs), D'Mitrius Ballard (7-0, 6 KOs) and Lamont Roach Jr (4-0, 2 KOs) look to keep their perfect records intact.

In addition, two of New York City's premier prospects will take to the ring at Brooklyn's Barclays Center starting with a 10-round super welterweight contest, as the Bronx's Eddie Gomez (16-1, 10 KOs) faces North Carolina's James Winchester (16-10, 6 KOs). Plus, Brooklyn's own Zachary Ochoa (8-0, 4 KOs) puts his unbeaten record on the line in a six-round super lightweight bout against Puerto Rico's Jose Miguel Castro (4-1, 2 KOs).

The Lemieux vs. Rosado main event pits Montreal knockout artist David Lemieux (32-2, 30 KOs) against Philadelphia fan favorite "King" Gabriel Rosado (21-8, 13 KOs). In the opening HBO bouts, Hugo "The Boss" Centeno Jr. (21-0,11 KOs) faces James "The King" De La Rosa (23-2, 13 KOs) in a 10-round middleweight matchup, and Thomas "El Frances" Dulorme (21-1, 14 KOs) squares off with "Hammerin" Hank Lundy (25-3-1, 12 KOs) in a 10-round bout for the vacant NABF and NABA Junior Welterweight Titles.

Eager to return to the win column after the first loss of his pro career against Francisco Santana in June, 22-year-old Eddie "E-Boy" Gomez (16-1, 10 KOs) is hungry to not just get the victory, but to do it in spectacular fashion. With a 4-0 record at Barclays Center, a run that includes a big January win over previously unbeaten Daquan Arnett, Gomez will have a huge fan base cheering him on in the building this Saturday when he meets Reidsville, North Carolina's James "Shotgun" Winchester (16-10, 6 KOs). A fearless competitor whose recent record includes bouts against the likes of Terrell Gausha and Luis Arias, the 36-year-old veteran could end the year in style with an upset against Gomez.

Barclays Center has become a second home for Brooklyn native Zachary "Zungry" Ochoa (8-0, 4 KOs), a promising 22-year-old talent who has gone 3-0 at the Barclays Center, most recently taking a near-shutout win over Luis Cervantes in August. On Saturday, Ochoa will be in tough against Carolina, Puerto Rico's Jose Miguel Castro, who brings an impressive (4-1, 2 KOs) record into the ring.

Also hailing from Puerto Rico is highly-regarded welterweight John Karl Sosa (11-0, 6 KOs), a Caguas prospect who has already won three fights against solid competition in 2014. Sosa will face Brooklyn's Jason Thompson (5-8-4, 4 KOs) in an eight-round matchup.

In a light heavyweight bout scheduled for six rounds, Washington, D.C.'s exciting prospect D'Mitrius Ballard (7-0, 6 KOs) will face Hartford, Connecticut's Tylon Burris (4-2, 2 KOs), while his D.C. neighbor Lamont Roach Jr. (4-0, 2 KOs) will open the event in a four-round lightweight bout against Aguada, Puerto Rico's Alexander Charneco (2-0, 2 KOs).

Dulorme vs. Lundy is a 10-round junior welterweight bout promoted by Golden Boy Promotions, Gary Shaw Productions and CES Boxing. The HBO Boxing After Dark telecast begins at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
