Boxing returns to Tampa this Friday

By Christopher P. Cook

Alessi Promotions brings back championship boxing to the Westshore DoubleTree this Friday in Tampa, Florida. In the main event of the evening, undefeated Ray Ximenez (7-0-0, 3 KOs) will battle Jose “Chilli” Rivera (3-5-2, 0 KOs) for the NBA Junior Flyweight title. Ximenez was last seen in action just one month ago at the DoubleTree, knocking out Manuel Galaviz inside of a round. The young Texan prospect will look to continue this winning streak and capture the first of possibly many titles in his future.

The co-main event features Florida’s own “Silky” Wilky Campfort (10-1-0, 5 KOs) in action against Djolevi Ballogou (8-3-0, 6 KOs) of Togo. Also in action on the card is St. Petersburg’s Clarence Booth (3-1-0, 2 KOs), and Fort Myers’ Marcus Willis (11-2-2, 3 KOs). The Westshore DoubleTree is located at 4500 West Cypress Street, Tampa, Florida 33607. Tickets are still available and can be purchased from First bell rings at 7:40 this Friday.
