Royale Rumble set for 11/23 in Boston
PROVIDENCE (October 31, 2013) - Many of New England's best and most popular fighters will be in action November 23 as Big Six Entertainment presents, "Royale Rumble,' on a special Saturday afternoon card (special 5 p.m. ET start) at The Royale Nightclub Boston (formerly The Roxy).
"Big Six Entertainment will be closing out a very successful 2013 with our best top-to-bottom card of the year," Big Six Entertainment president Artie DePinho said. "We're also thrilled to be returning to our Boston home at The Royale Nightclub. Popular veterans, promising prospects and everything in between will be showcased in front of the great Boston fight fans."
The six-round main event features one of the most popular fighters in New England, Lowell (MA) light heavyweight "Irish" Joey McCreedy (14-6-2, 6 KOs), against Nigeria-native Dennis Ogboo (7-7, 6 KOs), who fights out of Lexington, Kentucky.
Irag War veteran Chris Traietti (14-3, 10 KOs), fighting out of nearby Quincy, returns to The Royal Nightclub Boston in the eight-round co-feature against dangerous Adam "The Atom Bomb" Collins (11-9, 8 KOs), of Ironton, Ohio, for the vacant Universal Boxing Federation (UBF) Northeast cruiserweight title.
A pair of red-hot prospects from the Bay State, undefeated Lawrence heavyweight Alexis Santos (11-0, 10 KOs) and Lynn welterweight "Speedy" Rashidi Ellis (2-0, 1 KO), provide chief undercard support. Santos will fight an opponent to be determined in a six-round bout, while Ellis takes on Hartford's (CT) Oscar Diaz (0-2) in a four-rounder.
Also fighting on the card is Stoneham (MA) welterweight Greg Vendetti (4-0-1, 2 KOs) and Brockton's (MA) Antonio Chaves Fernandez (3-13-2) in a six-round rematch. They fought to a contested four-round draw this past July at the same venue.
Former world title challengers, Aleksandra Magdziak Lopes (10-2, 1 KO) and "Notorious" Nicole Woods (11-2-2, 3 KOs), from Stone Mountain, Georgia, will square-off in a six-round fight in the welterweight division. Lopes is a fan favorite from Marshfield (MA) by way of Poland.
Hartford super featherweight Joseph "Chip" Perez (10-3, 3 KOs) is also slated to fight in a six-round bout versus an opponent to be determined.
All fighters are subject to change.
