Granite Chin Promotions (GCP) kicks-off its 2019 schedule on Friday, April 12th at The Rim in Hampton, New Hampshire. Former New England welterweight champion Derek "The Surgeon" Silveira (15-2, 8 KOs), fighting out of Salem, MA, takes on Travis "The Outlaw" Demko (8-1, 1 KO), of Stoughton, MA, in the eight-round headliner for this former but now-vacant title. New England cruiserweight champion Chris Traietti (27-4, 21 KOs), fighting out of Quincy, MA, faces former Brazilian light heavyweight champion Gilberto "El Magico" Matheus Domingos (21-10, 9 KOs) in the ten-round co-feature. Traietti, an Iraq War veteran and college graduate, is also the promoter.
"After my last show I made a promise to myself that we were going to up our game as a company," Traietti said. "We got complacent and to be honest, we weren't giving fans the quality that they deserve. That's all going to change starting April 12th with Silveira vs Demko."
Vinnie "American Nightmare" Carita (19-1-1, 18 KOs), a court officer in Brockton (MA) who lives in Pembroke (MA), meets Brazil's Claudio "Quexado" Morroni (8-4-1, 7 KOs), in an eight-round cruiserweight bout... Welterweight Omar Bordoy (7-0, 2 KOs), representing Danbury, CT, throws down with France's Roman Tomas (7-2, 1 KO), now living in Brooklyn, NY, in a six-round bout... Lynn, MA welterweight Khiry "TNT" Todd (7-1, 5 KOs) versus his Mexican challenger, Francisco "El Mono" Medal (12-16, 8 KOs) in a six-round bout... Gloucester, MA middleweight "Handsome" Henry Gedney (2-0, 1 KO) squares off against New Jersey's Darryl "Dreamking" Bunting (3-5-2, 1 KO) in a four-rounder.
