NUTLEY, NEW JERSEY, February 6, 2012 — On Friday night, February 17th, Boxing returns to Nutley, New Jersey at Nutley High School for the first time in nearly three decades as Gabe LaConte’s First Round Promotions presents a terrific night of boxing that will feature some of the best prospects on the East Coast.

In the main event, undefeated Jr. Middleweight Thomas “Cornflake” LaManna will see action in his first six round bout.

“I have been around boxing a long time and it is great to bring boxing back to Nutley”, said LaConte who promoted some of the most memorable shows in the early 1990’s.

“On this card are some of the best prospects around this looks to be one of the best shows in years.  We have six undefeated fighters and they will be put in competitive matchups and I look forward to a great night in Nutley”

“We have a great story in Godson Noel who served in the Iraq war and became a decorated amateur and will be making his pro debut on our show”

It’s great to be finally coming home here to Nutley where we haven’t had a show in over thirty years”, said Vinny LaManna, longtime boxing guy and manager/father to the main event fighter..
