Manfredo Jr vs. Gingras Set For November 22nd


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (Nov. 6th, 2013) — The final boxing event of the season at Twin River Casino might just feature the most highly-anticipated main event in years.


“The Pride of Providence” Peter Manfredo Jr. (39-7, 20 KOs) will battle fellow Rhode Island super middleweight Rich Gingras (13-3-1, 8 KOs) in the 10-round main event of “Pride & Power,” presented by Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Entertainment & Sports on Friday, Nov. 22, 2013


After beating fellow Contender alum Walter Wright in March, Manfredo will face yet another former contestant from the hit reality television series in Gingras, who competed as a cruiserweight on Season 4 of The Contender in 2008. Since then, Gingras has become a fixture on the New England circuit, beating Rhode Islander Joey Gardner in May and fighting to a controversial draw against Vladine Biosse in July.


Now he’ll face the toughest test of his career against Manfredo Jr., a former International Boxing Organization (IBO) middleweight world champion and former World Boxing Council (WBC) and World Boxing Organization (WBO) title challenger who has become Rhode Island’s most popular fighter since five-time world champion Vinny Paz passed the torch a decade ago.


Ticket for the event are priced at $46, $61, $101 and $161 (VIP) and can be purchased by calling 401-724-2253/2254, online at or, or at the Players Club at Twin River. All fights and fighters are subject to change.


The undercard of “Pride & Power” features another longtime fan favorite as former four-time world champion Jaime “Hurricane” Clampitt (21-5-1, 7 KOs) of Warwick, R.I., returns from a three-year layoff for one last fight when she faces Brooklyn’s Dominga Olivo (8-8) in a six-round lightweight bout. Unbeaten Cranston, R.I., welterweight Nick DeLomba (2-0) will face Carlos Hernandez (3-2-1, 2 KOs) of Bridgeport, Conn., in a six-round bout and Providence’s KJ Harrison-Lombardi (3-0-1) will face newcomer Peter Eldridge of Brockton, Mass., in a four-round middleweight bout. Also on the undercard, Hartford, Conn., super welterweight Antonio Marrero (0-1) will face Providence’s Publio Pena (1-0, 1 KO) in a four-round bout. Hyannis, Mass., heavyweight Jesse Barboza (6-1-1, 4 KOs) and Willimantic, Conn., light heavyweight Kevin Cobbs (7-1, 2 KOs) will be featured in separate bouts. For more information, visit
