VINCENT: "I'M TRYING TO RUN THROUGH HER"
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (March 28th, 2014) -- Undefeated super bantamweight world champion Shelly Vincent (13-0, 1 KO) is less than a week away from the first defense of her Universal Boxing Federation (UBF) title against San Antonio's Christina Ruiz in a fight that figures to be the toughest challenge of her career.
"I'm coming forward. I'm throwing millions of punches," Vincent said. "I'm coming in throwing hard shots, trying to keep her busy. I'm trying to run through her."
The 10-round Vincent-Ruiz bout for the UBF and vacant International Boxing Association (IBA) 122-pound world titles is the main event of CES Boxing's "The Revival," scheduled for Friday, April 3rd, 2015 at Twin River Casino in Lincoln, R.I.
"We're trying to revive boxing and bring it back," Vincent said. "Christy Martin had it big. Layla Ali had it big. This my third time headlining -- second one back to back -- and it's going to be another sellout. We're trying to revive this sport and make it big for the kids."

PAZ, VERDI TEAM UP WITH UNBEATEN BOXING PROSPECT
LINCOLN, R.I. (March 19th, 2015) – The phone call couldn’t have come at a better time for Jean Pierre Augustin, even if he wasn’t quite sure it was real.
“I didn’t take it seriously at first,” said the Lawrence, Mass., cruiserweight boxer. “I thought it was a prank.”
But this was no joke. This was the opportunity of a lifetime, a chance for the 27-year-old fighter to play a role in Bleed For This, the upcoming Chad Verdi-produced film based on the career of five-time world champion Vinny Paz.
Augustin (4-0, 2 KOs) landed the role of former world champ Gilbert Dele, whom Paz beat in 1991, and made a lasting impression on the cast and crew, specifically Verdi and Paz, who are now guiding Augustin’s boxing career, which resumes Friday, April 3rd, 2015 at Twin River Casino on the undercard of “The Revival,” presented by CES Boxing in association with Verdi Productions.

Five months after capturing the vacant Universal Boxing Federation (UBF) super bantamweight title, Vincent (13-0, 1 KO) will defend the crown and put her unbeaten record on the lineFriday, April 3rd, 2015 against former world champion and four-time title contender Christina Ruiz (7-7-3, 4 KOs) of San Antonio in the 10-round main event of CES Boxing's "The Revival" at Twin River Casino in Lincoln, R.I.
As an added bonus, the vacant International Boxing Association (IBA) female super bantamweight world title, last held by Ana Julaton, is also up for grabs.

IN LESS THAN two years, Worcester's Khiary Gray-Pitts has gone from elite amateur standout to one of the most feared fighters in New England.
Since making his professional debut in June of 2014, just one week after his last fight as an amateur, Gray-Pitts has won five fights in an eight-month span, three by knockout.

He returns April 3rd to face New Haven, Conn., vet Greg McCoy,
