downloadPromoter Greg Cohen of Greg Cohen Promotions proudly announces the signing to an exclusive promotional contract of Long Island, New York’s popular welterweight Tommy “The Razor” Rainone (22-5-1, 4 KOs).

 

The deal comes just a few days before Rainone’s high-profile 10-round main-event showdown against Dusty Hernandez-Harrison (24-0, 13 KOs) on music superstar Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports debut boxing card this Friday, January 9, at Madison Square Garden Theater in New York City and live on FOX Sports 1 (10PM ET/7PM PT).

 

The 34-year-old Rainone is an aggressive southpaw with the heart of a warrior. In his last fight, on November 13 at The Space at Westbury in Westbury, New York, Rainone picked up his second professional title, the United States Boxing Organisation Welterweight Championship by scoring a unanimous decision over Carl McNickles (scores: 98-89, 98-89 and 97-91). Rainone also won the IBA Americas title in 2012.

 

“I’m proud to be working with a throwback fighter like Tommy Rainone,” said Greg Cohen. “He’s going into the biggest fight of his career and he’s 100% ready. Tommy plans on making the most of this opportunity and knows that a victory over Dusty at Madison Square Garden will be the launching pad he’s needed to secure fights at the highest level of the sport.”

 

Outside of boxing, the multi-talented Rainone works as a supervisor for Hilton Hotels and was also a cast member of the Off Broadway boxing play, Kid Shamrock, which appeared in winter of 2011 and the summer of 2012.

Also featured on the card at MSG is, Rainone’s GCP stable mate, Cecile McCalla, of Randallstown, Maryland, who will face South African southpaw Chris “The Heat” van Heerden (21-1-1, 11 KOs) for the IBF International Welterweight Championship.
