HUGE BOXING EVENT COMING TO ROCK

The good news is that ESPN’s Friday Night Fights will make a return to Rockingham Park in Salem on July 19.

Top quality professional boxing, ready for national prime time TV, invades the Granite State with a pretty solid main event involving 31-1 Nigerian junior welterweight Ajose Olusegun (31-1) and Philadelphia tough guy Hank Lundy (22-3-1).

One of my local favorites, Lawrence veteran Eddie “Thunder” Caminero is involved in the undercard.

He’ll have his hands full with undefeated Vermonter, Chris Gilbert.

Don’t sell the 7-8 Caminero short, though. All seven of his wins are via the knockout.

Promoters are hoping to lock down a fight for unbeaten Lawrence heavyweight, Alexis, “The Answer” Santos.
