Family owned and operated Martinez Cigars factory, based in NYC, has entered into a joint venture relationship with Joe DeGuardia’s, Star Boxing (Bronx-bred and White Plains, NY based). The relationship aims to promote both organizations and to enhance the overall experience for their respected fan bases throughout the greater NYC area.
Entrepreneur and attorney by trade, Joe DeGuardia, has promoted numerous successful boxing stars and world champions in his tenure as a boxing promoter. He has consistently been recognized as a leader in the field among his peers. DeGuardia’s expertise in the industry has even been called upon by the United States Senate to help formulate legislation in the boxing industry. He is also the President of the Boxing Promoters Association.
“I’m looking forward to this relationship,” says DeGuardia, “It’s great to work well-established local business with deep roots, and I believe they will be a great addition to our spectacular group of sponsors.”
Jesus Martinez is the second generation owner of Martinez Cigars. His father came to New York in the 70’s and founded the cigar factory located on West 29th Street at Seventh Avenue. The business has steadily grown over the years becoming a well-established brand known throughout the world. It is now one of the last of New York City’s last remaining full-service cigar factories. All of their products are handmade on location by the most skilled artisan cigar rollers in the business. In addition to offering a complete line of their own cigars, ranging from superior to ultra-premium, they supply various retailers with custom blends with privately labeled cigars that are made to order and offer custom cigar bands for special occasions.
“We’re very excited to be working with Star Boxing,” says owner Jesus Martinez, “We are always looking for opportunities to work with other local businesses and this gives us not only an opportunity to support Joe’s events and his fighters but also bring something great to our customers, a sensational experience.”
The relationship will debut on July 28th at Star Boxing’s Rockin’ Fights 27 at the Paramount in Huntington, NY. The Main Event features two native New Yorkers in a NYS Title Fight; Anthony Showtime Karperis from Hicksville, NY versus Louis Cruz from Bronx, NY.
