In the world of boxing chances to redeem yourself do not come along on a daily basis. For unbeaten Polish cruiserwieght Adrian “Pretty Boy” Pinhero he is looking to do just that on the “Night of Redemption” card.
That card will be held at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando, Florida and is co-promoted by Orlando Boxing Promotions and Boxlab Promotions.
Pinheiro has been fighting well as of late, there is just one blemish that he has suffered recently. That was when he fought Isaiah Thompson to a six-round split draw on February 25.
“I wasn’t happy about the decision in my last fight,” Pinheiro said. “It was a close fight, a few rounds could have gone one way or the other, but I thought I had won. I understand. That’s why you don’t leave it up to the judges. I took it as a lesson. I did learn a lot and I’ll keep learning and improving every fight.”
“This fight seems like redemption for me. I’m excited to be headlining for the first time and in my first scheduled eight-round fight. A lot of people expected more from me in my last fight. I have another opportunity to show what I can do. I didn’t have much of an amateur career, so I’m learning on the go as a pro. Every day, every fight, I’m always trying to learn. In 2023, I want to showcase my talent to the boxing world. I hope this fight will lead to bigger fights for me with more exposure. I’d like to fight on the undercard of a big show by the end of the year. I have a good team with my promoter, Vito Mielnicki (GH3 Promotions), and my trainer, Tony Blanco.”
“I am very proud of the work Adrian has put into his craft to be in this position,” Blanco remarked. “Headlining his first show with only 11 pro fights says a lot about his work ethic. I am also proud to be part of his boxing journey and I look forward to what the future holds for him if he continues his path.”
Pinheiro (10-0-1, 9 KOs), who is currently ranked 13 by the NABA will take on Demetrius Banks (12-12-2, 5 KOs). Banks who hails from Detroit is best known for spoiling the pro debut for Antwaun Tubbs in 2014. Antwaun, who is the son of former heavyweight champ Tony, was defeated in four rounds via a technical knockout.
“My opponent is a tough fighter who has upset a few people,” Pinheiro added. “He is more experienced than me, so I’m not taking him lightly. This fight is the next step for me.”
There will be a ton of other action on “Night of Redemption” as undefeated 22-year-old Jeovanny “El Rayo’ Estela (10-0, 3 KOs) is taking on the ultra-tough Saul “Navajo’ Corral (23-20, 13 KOs).
Idalberto Umara, who hails from Miami and brings in a 9-1 overall record with 6 KOs, is defending the WBA Fedecaribe lightweight belt for the first time. Umara will take on challenger Braulio Rodriguez (23-20, 13 KOs) in what will be a 10 round banger.
There will be a ton of other prospects in action including Daine Smikle who hails from the Orlando Area, and is also a former member of the Jamaican National Boxing Team.
