You’d be hard pressed to name a boxer of note that hasn’t been interviewed at least once by Philadelphia’s Marc Abrams. On Friday, August 2, Abrams and his backers are launching their latest venture www.Pandafeed.TV to air not only great boxing and MMA Shows, but all sorts of top notch entertainment throughout the land.

Philadelphia, PA, July 29, 2013

This Friday, August 2, will be a historic night for boxing as www.pandafeed.tv will air a full night of boxing action on their new website. Headlining their first show is southpaw “The New” Ray Robinson (15-2-0, 6 KOs) who will be battling the former Olympian Sugar Ray Narh “The Emperor” (26-2-0, 21 KOs) for the USBA Welterweight title.

Once again, it’s your typical Philly versus New Yawk turf war. Ray Robinson of Philadelphia has a record of 15-2 with six knockouts. The former amateur standout won his first eleven bouts to include a win over the undefeated Darnell Jiles (8-0-1).

He won the Pennsylvania Welterweight title with a two round waxing of former U.S. Olympian Terrance Cauthen and in his last bout on February 8, Robinson scored a 10 round unanimous decision over Alberto Morales to pick up the Interim NABA Welterweight title.

The hard punching Sugar Ray Narh, “The Emperor” of Brooklyn, New York by way of Accra, Ghana has a record of 26-2 with 21 knockouts.

In his next bout, Narh stopped two-time world title-challenger Luis Bolono in two rounds. He won the USNBC Jr. Welterweight title with a second round stoppage of Angel Hernandez. Narh also has a win over former world champion Freddie Norwood.

After being stopped by future world champ Mike Alvarado, Narh picked up a significant win in his last bout back in June when he scored a 10 round unanimous decision over much herald Ronald Cruz in Cruz’ hometown of Bethlehem, PA.
