The 33-year-old Costantino, fighting out of Queens, was born without a
right hand. He participated in two New York City Golden Gloves
Tournaments, reaching the quarterfinals one year, and he plans to make a
statement in his scheduled four-round pro debut against an opponent to
"This is a dream come true for me," the property manager in Brooklyn and
Queens explained. "I always loved boxing. I was an athlete growing up,
playing all sports, and a friend got me into boxing when I was 16. I
thought boxing was a beautiful but hard sport and I respected
individuals in boxing. I tried boxing and enjoyed it.
"I have to thank Sadam and David Ali for giving me this opportunity. I
know Sadam from the amateurs. I'm taking it as one fight at a time. My
goal is to show people that anything is possible. I had no problem
getting licensed. Fighting on pay per view is important because, the
more people who see what I'm doing, the better. I'm just focusing on
this fight but I definitely want to show people that anything you put
your mind to is possible."
The youngest boxing promoter in America, 23-year-old Ali is an
undefeated welterweight prospect who is taking on former Indiana State
champion Jermaine "Too Sweet" White (17-5, 9 KOs), of Chicago, in the
10-round main event.
