A pair of young boxers from York County will highlight a November boxing event at the Valencia Ballroom in York City.

Samuel Quinones Jr., a 24-year-old boxer who lives in York, will headline the event. He'll get a rematch against Ramon Ellis (4-9-2), who defeated Quinones by knockout in Quinones' pro debut on Aug. 11, 2012. Since then, Quinones (3-2) has won three of his last four matches, most recently beating Justin Johnson (6-5-4) by decision on Oct. 12.

The Quinones-Ellis super-lightweight (140-pound) match-up will be one of six fights scheduled for the Nov. 23 event.

York resident James Robinson (1-0-1), 22, will compete at 154 pounds (super welterweight). Robinson made his pro debut in July when he defeated Delvery Wofford (0-7) by decision. He and Cian Dalton (2-0-1) fought to a draw in an August fight.

Doors to the show open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $30 for general admission, $40 for reserved and $60 for ringside.

For more information or for tickets, contact Julio Alvarez at 968-8000.
