Former Olympian Estrada returns March 9

2004 U.S. Olympian Jason “Big Six” Estrada (17-4, 4 KOs) returns to the ring March 9 at home, headlining at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence. Estrada will face an opponent to soon be approved and announced in the eight-round main event. He is coming off of a win by eight-round unanimous decision last December after being sidelined for 10 months after undergoing elbow surgery. “We’re very excited to bring this level of entertainment to Providence,” Big Six Entertainments president Artie DePinho commented. “Our goal is to provide local boxers with opportunities to improve and continue their careers, as well as to provide competitive fights for fans to watch. We had a great turnout for our last show and we plan to carry that momentum and success into this show.”

Former USBA/NABO middleweight champion Brian “The Bull” Barbosa (30-6, 22 KOs) continues his comeback against dangerous John Johnson (13-2, 10 KOs) in the six-round co-feature.

Cruiserweight Rich Gingras, one of the stars of The Contender, Season IV reality television show, will provide chief support in a six-round cruiserweight match. Gingras has relocated to Providence from New Hampshire.
