Encore Boston Harbor is proud to announce the return of Murphys Boxing on Thursday, April 9th in the Picasso Ballroom.
Headlining the event will be the pride of Stoneham, Massachusetts, Greg Vendetti (22-3-1, 12 KOs) who will take on Los Angeles-based contender, Cleotis Pendarvis (21-5-2, 6 KOs) for the IBA Welterweight World Title.
'The Villain', one of the most popular fighters in the Boston area, headlined Murphys Boxing’s sold out Encore Boston Harbor debut last summer and looked outstanding in an exciting unanimous decision victory over fellow world ranked contender, Michael Anderson. Prior to that, Vendetti upset world title challenger, Yoshihiro Kamegai before challenging for the WBA Interim World Junior Middleweight title against Michel Soro in France.
“My last fight at Encore was one of the most electric crowds I’ve ever fought in front of,” said Vendetti. “To return again in the main event for their first fight of 2020 is an honor and I’m ready to put on another show in front of all my fans and friends.”
The stacked undercard will feature a who’s who of local prospects including:
Mansfield’s undefeated James Perella, South Boston’s wildly popular Joe Farina, Stoughton’s dual combat sports warrior Travis Demko, Boston’s buzzed about Jonathan Depina, Watertown brawler, Greg Bono, the professional debut of Weymouth’s Francis Hogan and one of the most talented prospects in all of New England, William Foster III.
