It was a starry, fair weathered historic night within the concourse of the 68,000 seat Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA, home to the NFL’s New England Patriots this past Sunday as it played host to its first ever professional boxing card, a three bout event held immediately after the New England Revolution were defeated by the Montreal Impact 1-0 in a Major League Soccer matchup. In the main event of the evening, welterweight Danny O’Connor (18-1, 17KOs), fighting out of nearby Framingham, MA knocked Providence, RI veteran Eddie Soto (12-5, 4 KOs) down twice in their bout with the second being his last as Soto could not reach his feet before the count of ten at 1:09 of the fourth round. The three bout fight card was promoted by DiBella Entertainment in association with Warriors Boxing. Click here for the full report and action-packed photogallery.
