Boxing will be a big part of the Bronx for the next eight months.

Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing Inc. will host five shows through December at the Paradise Theater in the Bronx, beginning Thursday, May 5 with “ Cinco de Mayo Fight Night”.

"I'm thrilled to get the Punchin at the Paradise series up and running on a regular basis. There is nothing more enjoyable to me then to be able to produce quality boxing events right here in the Bronx," said Bronx native DeGuardia.

DeGuardia, an attorney, established Star Boxing in 1992.

"We have five dates locked in already,” DeGuardia said. “We plan to get things started with a bang with our Cinco De Mayo show, which will feature some of the most exciting up and coming Latino prospects in boxing, including at least two who call the Bronx their home.”

Scheduled dates for the 2011 Paradise Series:

1. Thursday May 5th
2. Thursday July 7th
3. Thursday October 6th
4. Thursday December 1st
5. Open date - roaming date for TV
