Pro boxing returns June 12 to Plymouth as Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Entertainment and Sports, Inc. (CES) presents a rare pro-am card, “Brawl At The Hall,” at historic Plymouth Memorial Hall. “Brawl At The Hall” is the second of four shows in “The Radisson Hotel Plymouth Harbor Fight Series,” scheduled in 2009 at Plymouth Memorial Hall and exclusively promoted by CES. Iraqi War veteran Chris Traietti (7-2, 4 KOs), a light heavyweight from Quincy, is in the 6-round main event. Also in action, U.S. Navy veteran and Plymouth firefighter, light heavyweight Benny “The Hornet” Lescarbeau (3-0, 3 KOs), is back fighting in front of his hometown fans in a four round contest.
Also on the undercard in 4-round bouts are light middleweight Aleksandra Magdziak Lopes (0-1), a Plymouth High graduate now fighting out of Marshfield, and a pair of pro-debuting boxers from Cape Cod, super middleweight Paul Gonsalves and heavyweight Jessie Barboza. Gonsalves, fighting out of Harwich, is a 2-time Southern New England Golden Gloves champion, while Barboza, of Barnstable, is a 3-time New England Golden Gloves title holder. All fights and fighters are subject to change.
Five amateur matches featuring some of the area’s top non-professionals are also scheduled on the “Brawl At The Hall” card.
“We’re excited to be back in beautiful Plymouth and hope that people will enjoy a mini-vacation there with CES,” promoter Jimmy Burchfield said. “This will be one of the few pro-am shows ever held in Massachusetts. It’s so appropriate that an Iraqi War veteran (Chris Traietti), as well as a US Navy veteran and Plymouth firefighter (Benny Lescarbeau), are fighting on a card in ‘America’s Hometown,’ one of these most historic areas in this great country. We hope locals will support their fighters and tourists enjoy a different, entertaining night out after visiting Plymouth Rock, The Mayflower and so many other places of great interest in Plymouth.”
Tickets for “Brawl At The Hall” are moderately priced (includes $3.00 surcharge per ticket) at $38.00 (Bronze), $48.00 (Silver), and $78.00 (Jimmy’s Platinum Club). VIP tables of eight are also available. To purchase call CES (401.724.2253/2254) or go online at www.cesboxing.com.
