HOLLYWOOD, FL, April 11 The day before the New York Yankees make their debut in their new home in the Bronx, two of boxings heaviest hitters Andre Berto and Juan Urango - will enter the new Yankee Stadium to announce a May 30th event that is destined to produce more big shots than a home run derby.

WHO: WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto and IBF junior welterweight champion Juan Urango

WHAT: Press conference to announce May 30th HBO featuring welterweight championship bout between Andre Berto and Juan Urango

WHERE: NYY STEAK in Yankee Stadium - Gate 6 (Located above Hard Rock Cafe) Bronx, NY

WHEN: Wednesday, April 15 at noon. A light lunch will be served, followed by the press conference and interview and photo opportunities with the participants.

A 2004 Olympian for Haiti, Andre Berto (24-0, 19 KOs) is one of boxings rising young stars, a status he owes to his incredible talent and crowd-pleasing style. Unbeaten as a pro, Berto parlayed wins over Norberto Bravo, Cosme Rivera, David Estrada, and Michel Trabant into a 2008 title shot against Miguel Angel Rodriguez and Berto made the most of his opportunity, stopping his foe in seven rounds to win the WBC welterweight title. The 25-year old has since defended his title with wins over Steve Forbes and Luis Collazo, and he plans on adding a third defense to his record against Urango.

One of boxings hardest punchers, pound for pound, Juan Iron Twin Urango (21-1-1, 16 KOs) has struck fear into the hearts of opponents ever since his pro debut in 2002. Since then, he has won the IBF junior welterweight title twice, with his only setback coming via decision to Ricky Hatton in 2007. The Monteria, Colombia native bounced back from that defeat with four straight wins, the most recent coming over Herman Ngoudjo in January in a bout that earned him his second world title. Now he chases after bigger game in the welterweight division.

This event is presented by DiBella Entertainment and Seminole Warriors Boxing and will be televised live on HBO Boxing After Dark beginning at 9:45 pm ET / 6:45pm PT.
Tickets, priced at $202, $152, $102, and $52, go on sale on April 15, and may be purchased at Hard Rock Live Box Office or may also be obtained online at www.TicketMaster.com
