Main Events Strengthens Stable with Signing of Two New England Locals: Middleweight Thomas Falowo and Heavyweight Prospect Cassius ChaneyApril 28th, 2015
Totowa, NJ – Main Events adds two new fighters to their already impressive stable with the signing of two New England prospects: middleweight Thomas “The Souljah” Falowo (13-3, 8 KOs) of Providence, Rhode Island and heavyweight Cassius Chaney (1-0, 1 KO) of New Haven, Connecticut.
Falowo, 26, is coming off an impressive win over his long-time amateur rival, Russell Lamour, on ESPN Friday Night Fights on January 30 at Foxwoods in Connecticut. The two met several times as amateurs with Lamour winning all but one match-up but, in their first fight as pros, Falowo took the victory in an exciting unanimous decision.
The Souljah made his professional debut in 2010 with a second round stoppage of Odias Dumezil after which he stopped his next three opponents and won his first six professional bouts. Prior to his win over Lamour, Falowo suffered defeat at the hands of former amateur standout Ronald Gavril on Showtime. Notably, two of Falowo’s three career losses have come at the hands of undefeated fighters.
