Press Release: Two regional showdowns have been added to CES' May 17th boxing event at Rhode Island's Twin River Casino, starting with Pawtucket, RI middleweight Thomas Falowo (9-1, 7 KOs) stepping up to face Tylon Burris (5-0, 3 KOs) of Hartford, Conn. in a six-round bout. Also, super middleweight Rich Gingras (12-3, 8 KOs) of Attleboro, Mass., will battle Joey Gardner (11-5-1, 1 KO) of Woonsocket, R.I., in a six-round bout. 

In the two main bouts, Vladine Biosse (14-2-1, 7 KOs) will face Philadelphia's Latif Mundy (10-5, 4 KOs) in an eight-round super middleweight bout, while Shelito Vincent (8-0) will fight Christina Ruiz (6-5-2, 4 KOs) of San Antonio, Tex., in a women's 122-pound bout scheduled for eight rounds.

The always-busy Falowo, who's known for throwing a high volume of punches from start to finish, will have his hands full with Burris, who has raised eyebrows in New England following a knockout win over previously-unbeaten light heavyweight Kevin Cobbs in November. Falowo has won his last three bouts, all by knockout, since suffering his first loss in May of 2012.
The Gingras-Gardner showdown came to fruition after Providence's Alex Amparo withdrew from his scheduled rematch with Gardner due to a rib injury. Gardner, who has won his last three fights, will instead face Gingras, a former cruiserweight now looking to make his mark in the super middleweight division. 
Biosse is looking to move past a Jan. 19th loss to Marcus Upshaw against the 5-foot-8 Mundy, who has faced tough competition in recent years against Ossie Duran, Matt Korobov and Patrick Majewski; the three have a combined record of 68-11-2 with 35 knockouts.
Ruiz will be Vincent's toughest test as she fights for a title for the first time in her career. Ruiz recently lost a unanimous decision to IFBA super bantamweight champion Kaliesha West in California and also challenged Alicia Ashley for the then-vacant WBC title in July of 2011. Her last two wins (February of 2011 and April of 2010) have come by knockout. Vincent is coming off a March 1 win over Mikayla Nebel and is already 2-0 in 2013.
Also on the undercard, Boston's Maceo Crowder (2-0), the half-brother of former U.S. Olympian and Providence native Demetrius Andrade, will return from a three-year absence to face Harwich, Mass., veteran Paul Gonsalves (4-3) in a four-round super middleweight bout; and welterweight Jon Smith (1-0) of Cranston, R.I., will battle newcomer Oscar Diaz of Hartford, Conn., in a four-round bout. Hyannis, Mass., heavyweight Jesse Barboza (5-1-1) will take on New Jersey's Phillip Triantafillo (2-2, 1 KO) in a four-round bout. 

Tickets can be purchased online at or, at the Players Club booth at Twin River, or through any TicketMaster location.
