(MAR 16)  LINCOLN, R.I. - Nearly 5,000 rabid boxing fans filled to the Twin River Casino Event Center, to watch two former reality-television stars, “The Pride of Providence,” Peter Manfredo, Jr. battle Walter “Two-Guns” Wright demonstrating that the demise of boxing in the United States is considerably exaggerated.

The first bout of the evening, a female bantamweight battle between prospects Noemi Bosques (1-0, 0 KOs) Providence, R.I. via Saint Petersburg, FL, 113 ½, versus Vanessa Greco (1-2-1, 0 KOs) Brooklyn, NY, 115 ½, engaged in a fist-flying affair over four hotly contested rounds.

A “tale of two fights” best describes this match-up pitting a striking variation of boxing styles and back-and-forth nature of the action with Greco, the more aggressive fighter, sliding inside of the Bosques jab and landing in combination to the body and head from close range in the middle rounds. The speedier Bosques was more efficient from long-range early and late keeping Greco at bay with straight punches and lateral movement.

In the end, the assigned judges fittingly called the fight a majority draw with a single judge favoring Greco, (39-37 Greco/38-38/38-38). This writer also scored the bout a draw (38-38). With the draw, Vanessa Greco witnessed her record move to a deceiving (1-2-2, 0 KOs), whereas Bosques moved to (1-0-1) remaining unbeaten.

Both fighters expressed interest in a rematch. Noemi Bosques performed well considering she engaged in this fight just two weeks removed from the death of her mother in Florida.

Promoter: Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Entertainment & Sports
Match Maker: Michael Parente
Venue: Twin River Casino, Lincoln, R.I.
Main Event: Peter Manfredo Jr. UD-10 Walter Wright
Attendance: 5,000 (estimate)
