Seanie Monaghan and Marcus Browne, with promoter Lou Dibella, are set to bring boxing back to Long Island this summer.
Boxing in Long Island. Believe it, folks.
Although it’s been quite awhile, the sport is returning the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum this summer. (And when we say “quite awhile,” we’re talking about Mike Tyson.)
One of the top-billed fights will be Seanie Monaghan and Marcus Browne, who are friends and sparring partners out of the ring, but will be anything but come Jul. 15.

MARCUS BROWNE, Unbeaten Light Heavyweight from Staten Island
