VINCENT OUTDUELS TRIVILINO IN SLUGFEST TO WIN WORLD TITLE

LINCOLN, R.I. (Nov. 7th, 2014) – In what will undoubtedly go down as the fight of the year, and perhaps one of the most memorable fights in the recent history of women’s boxing, Providence, R.I., super bantamweight Shelito Vincent earned her first world title Friday at Twin River Casino, narrowly beating Jackie Trivilino, 95-95, 98-92, 96-94, to capture the vacant Universal Boxing Federation (UBF) championship.


As expected, both fighters came out swinging, exchanging lefts and rights through the first two rounds while fighting within striking distance of one another the entire fight.

VINCENT, TRIVILINO BATTLE FOR WORLD TITLE TONIGHT

OLDER, WISER GRAY READY TO SHINE

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (Nov. 5th, 2014) – Growing up in Worcester, Khiary Gray-Pitts had two choices: stay in the streets and keep rolling with the wrong crowd, or get back in the boxing gym and turn his life around.


“The more I got into trouble, the more I realized I had to get back into boxing,” he recalled.


A promising young amateur born and raised in a city synonymous with boxing excellence, from former world champion Jose Antonio Rivera to current world-title challenger Edwin Rodriguez, Gray-Pitts (2-0, 1 KO) seemed destined for greatness as a teenager until a devastating loss cost him a trip to the nationals and sent him veering down the wrong path.


“I began hanging with the wrong crowd, just getting into all sorts of trouble,” he said.

CONFIDENT TRIVILINO READY FOR VINCENT

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (Oct. 31st, 2014) – In what can only be considered a strange, ghoulish twist of fate during Halloween season, Shelito Vincent and Jackie Trivilino, who will slug it out for 10 rounds next Friday night for a world title, might be more inclined to bond over a mutual disdain for a certain undefeated New York fighter than trade blows with one another when the bell rings Nov. 7th.


Though it’s not exactly a love-fest – both have promised to unload a million punches – the two are comically linked as adversaries to Brooklyn’s Heather Hardy, the reigning World Boxing Council (WBC) International super bantamweight champion, who earned the title earlier this month in a narrow, majority decision win over Crystal Hoy.

VINCENT CHASES CHAMPIONSHIP DREAM

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (Oct. 30th, 2014) -- The story of Shelito Vincent is a long, winding narrative of a selfless fighter with no hidden agendas.

 

Only a select few strike it rich in boxing, particularly on the women's side, so Vincent fights for more than just money. She fights for underprivileged children, many of them a mirror image of her younger self, who are looking for someone -- or something -- to believe in.

 

She fights for the memory of her late mother, who passed away at the age of 37 just seven months after being diagnosed with leukemia more than a decade ago. She also fights for the survival and success of women's boxing, hoping to put the sport on the map so that others who wear the gloves may one day get the respect -- and compensation -- they deserve.

 

CAMACHO JR. BEGINS SECOND COMEBACK NOV. 7TH

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (Oct. 23rd, 2014) – Two years ago, with pressure to raise a family and provide his children with a stable home, Angel Camacho Jr. decided to step away from boxing, still undefeated after 12 professional fights.


“I could accept the fact I was longer fighting,” said the father of three from Providence, R.I., “but it was difficult to swallow.”


Rather than live with regret, the 31-year-old super middleweight decided it’d be best to end his career on his terms. On Friday, Nov. 7th, 2014, Camacho (12-0, 4 KOs) will end a three-year layoff when he returns to the ring to face hard-hitting Tylon Burris (5-2, 3 KOs) of Hartford, Conn., in a six-round bout on the undercard of “Winner Take All,” the 2014 season finale for CES Boxing at Twin River Casino.

Featured Fighter : Rich Gingras, Lincoln, R.I.

THERE'S NO FIGHTER in New England right now hotter than Rich Gingras.


The hard-hitting light heavyweight from Lincoln, R.I., recently captured his second title in as many fights, defeated Lowell, Mass., veteran Joey McCreedy in a back-and-forth battle Sept. 12 at Twin River Casino, defending his New England while also winning McCreedy's UBF Northeast Light Heavyweight crown.


After losing his last fight in 2013 to Peter Manfredo Jr., Gingras has rebounded nicely, first beating Jaime Velazquez early in 2014 for the vacant New England belt and then beating McCreedy in the possible Fight of the Year in September. Gingras is now 15-4-1 with nine knockouts as he aims to defend both belts and perhaps enter a long-awaited rematch with Providence's Vladine Biosse in 2015.
