PROVIDENCE – For Vladine Biosse, “Mr. Providence” is more than just a clever nickname stitched onto a pair of shorts.

“Being ‘Mr. Providence’ is about carrying on a legacy,” says Biosse, who faces the toughest test of his career Friday, May 13th, 2016 against fellow Providence native and Rhode Island icon Peter Manfredo Jr.

“When you talk about Providence, you’re talking about a great city, a fighting city for so many years. Carrying that torch means so much to me.”

The always-ready Biosse (15-7-2, 7 KOs), a physical marvel who stays in shape year-round, replaces Angel Camacho Jr., who sustained a foot injury, in the highly publicized “BATTLE FOR THE CAPITAL,” a dream matchup between two well-respected Providence veterans at Twin River Casino, the hub of boxing in the northeast for the past decade.

by on May.03, 2016, under Press Releases

 

NEW YORK – This past Saturday night, DiBella Entertainment saw a trio of its prospects pick up victories on separate cards as Abel Ramos, Dardan Zenunaj and Lamar Russ all added to the win column of their respective records.

Ramos, returning for the first time since his lone loss as a professional at the hands of red-hot undefeated prospect Regis Prograis on ShoBox in December, scored a third-round knockout over Javier Mercado (23-11-2, 21KO’s) in Mexico. The former amateur standout saw his record improve to 15-1-2, 10KO’s, and is set to return later this month in his home state of Arizona, as he looks to gear up for another big fight in the talent-laden 140lb. division.   (continue reading…)

LAS VEGAS – World Boxing Association (WBA) Interim cruiserweight world champion Beibut Shumenov (16-2, 10 KOs), the only Kazakhstan-native to hold world titles in two different weight classes, is disputing the WBA’s sanctioning of the WBA “regular” cruiserweight world championship fight, May 20 in Paris, between two lower-ranked WBA fighters, No. 2 Yunier Dorticos and No. 5 Youri Kalenga (recently upgraded to No. 3).

Last July, Shumenov defeated B.J. Flores by way of a 12-round unanimous decision to become the mandatory challenger for WBA “regular” cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev, who was later elevated to “Super” champion. (continue reading…)

PROVIDENCE – Opportunity knocked, and “Mr. Providence” answered.

With undefeated super middleweight Angel Camacho Jr. sustaining a broken foot, forcing him to withdraw from his upcoming megabout against Rhode Island icon Peter Manfredo Jr., fellow Ocean State veteran Vladine Biosse has answered the call to face Manfredo at Twin River Casino on Friday, May 13th, 2016.

“THE BATTLE FOR THE CAPITAL” between Peter “The Pride of Providence” Manfredo (40-7, 21 KOs) and “Mr. Providence” Biosse (15-7-2, 7 KOs) takes place nearly nine years to the date of Twin River’s professional boxing debut, which occurred May 11th, 2007 and starred Manfredo in a knockout win over Ted Muller.  

“It’s a great opportunity for me to go out there and showcase my talent versus his talent,” Biosse said. “It’s an honor to share a ring with a man who I’ve been friends with outside of the ring even before boxing. He’s shown me nothing but love, so to go in there and share a ring with a man like that and compete, it feels good.”   (continue reading…)
