COMING TO ROCK
he details have just begun to trickle in, but it looks like a great night could be had on April 12 at Rockingham Park in Salem, N.H.
That night, it will be Team USA vs. Team Cuba in a unique format as The World Series of Boxing makes its New England debut.
“We are very excited to bring World Series of Boxing to New Hampshire,” WSB CEO Karim Bouzidi commented. “USA versus Cuba is a major event worldwide, especially in America where it’s never been held before under AIBA sanctioning. Our shows are known for their entertaining matches and finally New England will also be able to enjoy this amazing experience.”
Many top Olympians on the Cuban side will compete for the “Domadores” in the matchup, which will feature many of the top amateurs both countries have to offer.
Tickets start at a mere $20 for general admission and rise up to $50 for the best ringside seats in the house.

NO THANKS ON CHUNG
Give Patrick Chung credit. He and I are on the exact same page when it comes to his second stint here with the New England Patriots.
“I don’t have any expectations,” said Chung, who was released by Philadelphia and signed by the Pats.
Niether do I, Pat. Neither do I
Chung now gets tossed in a pack of perspective Patriots safeties including Devin McCourty, Logan Ryan, Adrian Wilson and Duron Harmon, no that the consummate journeyman Steve Gregory has been moved along.
“Whatever Bill (Belichick) needs me to do, this team, I’m going to do it. Regardless if it’s special team or it’s defense, whatever my role is here, I’m OK with that. This is where I want to be, so that’s good for me. I’m not worried about all the distractions, ‘Am I going to be playing, am I going to be doing this?’ Whatever I can do to help the team win, then I’m good.”
