MAURAS GOES SUNDAY
The latest from Sean Farley’s Intenz 978 Boxing Team has unbeaten Agustine Mauras headed to the Dorchester Armory tomorrow in the first six-rounder of the young pro’s career.
Mauras and stablemate/unbeaten heavyweight Alexis Santos had each been slated to fight on the March 16 Tsongas Arena card in Lowell. But this opportunity was solid for Mauras. And Santos came up with a rib injury in training recently. The big fella will pass on both cards as he recovers.
