Undefeated New England boxers Tramaine "The Mighty Midget" Williams and Anthony Marsella, Jr. have been added in separate bouts to a Friday April 12th show at The Rim in Hampton, New Hampshire. The 26-year-old Williams (16-0, 6 KOs), fighting out of Connecticut, is a former 10-time national amateur champion who will be fighting Mexico's Ernesto "Monito" Guerrero (31-26, 21 KOs). Marsella (11-0, 5 KOs), 24, is a Rhode Island welterweight who will go against Engleberto "Guarura" Valenzuela (11-15, 3 KOs) of Mexico. The show, a presentation of Granite Chin Promotions, will be headlined by an eight-round all-Massachusetts welterweight contest between Derek "The Surgeon" Silveira (15-2, 8 KOs) and Travis "The Outlaw" Demko (8-1, 1 KO).
"We're excited to add two of the most talented boxers in New England, Tramaine Williams and Antony Marsella, Jr., to the best top-to-bottom card Granite Chin has ever promoted," promoter/ fighter Chris Traietti said. "We've made a planned effort to upgrade our shows in 2019. Not only do we have many of the most talented and popular New England boxers on this card, we have three title fights, topped by Derek Silveira and Demko for the vacant New England Welterweight Championship."
"Tramaine is on a fast track mission to keep busy and then get his world title shot as soon as possible," said Roc Nation Sports boxing promoter Dino Duva. "This April 12th fight continues that mission. I want to thank my old friend Chris Traietti with providing this slot for Tramaine. It's always a pleasure to work with him."
