NIAGARA FALLS, NEW YORK - The pro boxing show "Fight on the Falls" will take place at the Niagara Falls Event Center on Thursday, February 27th.

The event is a showcase of fighters from Western New York. Headlining the card is Niagara Falls native Nick "Hands of Gold” Casal (22-4-1, 17 KO's) in the Main Event. Casal will face Shakha “Shak” Moore (11-19-3, 2 KO's) of Norwalk, Connecticut, in a 6-round light welterweight fight.

"I'm an action fighter," Casal said. "We like to put on a show, so it's going to be quite a bit of knockouts."

The Co-Main Event features two more area boxers. Buffalo native Greg "Juice" Brady (4-1, 4 KO's) will face Joe Shojgreen (8-0, 7 KO's) in a 6-round cruiserweight bout. Then another Buffalo product, Vincent "Vinsanity" Arroyo (12-1-0) will fight, though his opponent has yet to be determined.

"Expect excitement like everybody is right now," Arroyo said. "Expect the unexpected things to happen during the fight... they don't call me Vinsanity for no reason. I bring nothing but chaos to my opponent and every opponent."

Two more area fighters will be making their pro debut's. Michael Jackson will fight Carl Davis and Jake Ventry will fight Jesus Gonzalez.

"It means a lot because... we don't get the exposure we should," Casal said. "And Buffalo has a lot of great talent and this fight will show it."

"It's excellent," Arroyo added. "It's exciting. This is my first time here. This is what I've been waiting for."
