A series of unfortunate events almost led to the cancellation of Thursday’s progam card at the Boxing and Bulls Outdoor Grounds in Hays, Montana, with three fighters not showing up for the weigh-ins, two pulling out the day of the fight, and intermittent rain storms sending the Silver Wolf Fight Promotions crew scrambling to salvage the show. In the end, a few last-minute replacements held most of the pro portion together and, after a three-hour delay allowed for the rain to pass, the show went ahead.

7th annual Wray and Nephews Rum Contender Boxing Series
Jamaica vs. Canada, Championship final this Wed. in Kingston
KINGSTON, Jamaica (July 24, 2017) – Hall of Fame referee Steve Smoger and International judge Steve Weisfeld, arguably the top two worldwide in their respective positions, are both working this Wednesday (July 26) championship final of the seventh annual Wray and Nephew Rum Contender Boxing Series, outdoors on the grounds of The Mico University College in Kingston, Jamaica.

Former Caribbean Boxing Federation (CABOFE) and Jamaican welterweight champion Sakina Mullings (22-3, 14 KOs) takes on Phil “The Assassin” Rose (9-4-1, 5 KOs) in the 10-round championship final.

Mullings’ most significant victory to date is a 12-round decision in 2013 over Howard Eastman (46-11), the former European champion and two-time world title challenger from Guyana. Mullings was born in Kingston and lives in Stoney Hill, Jamaica.

Fighting out of Whitby, Ontario, Canada, Rose stopped two-time Canadian Olympian Adam Trupish (11-1) in the second round of their 2014 fight, and last November he upset previously undefeated Ryan Young (10-0) with an opening round knockout. (continue reading…)

by on Jul.18, 2017, under Press Releases

Saturday night, August 5, in Quincy, MA
QUINCY, MA – Former New England. welterweight champion Derek Silveira Is trying to make up for lost time, 3 ½ years of ring inactivity from the summer of 2013 until this past April, as he prepares to headline the August 5th “Fight Night at the Bay” card, presented by Granite Chin Promotions, at Marina Bay Sportplex in Quincy, Massachusetts.

Silveira (12-1, 6 KOs), fighting out of Salem (MA), will face former world title challenger Michael “Cold Blood” Clark (44-16-1, 18 KOs) in the eight-round main event.

The 31-year-old Silveira fought for a long time with bones spurs in his right elbow. He underwent surgery and later went to training camp in Las Vegas for a fight that, unfortunately, fell through. Then, as a worker for a moving company, he fell through steps, resulting in torn labrum in his left hip. It took a terribly frustrating 1 ½ years for his insurance company to finally approve the operation, which was followed, of course, by a lengthy therapy program. (continue reading…)
