CUSTIO CLAYTON ADDED TO ONTARIO SHOW
Press Release: Montreal welterweight Custio Clayton has been added to an Ontario boxing show on Saturday, April 15th at the Cornwall Civic Complex in Cornwall. Clayton (10-0) takes on Mexico's Alfredo Chavez (12-8) in the eight-round co-feature bout. Clayton of Montreal, Quebec, was a 2012 Canadian Olympian and has faced solid competition in his first ten pro bouts, inlcuding wins over Eduards Gerasimovs (5-1-1), Ivan Pereyra (20-5), Stanislas Salmon (25-3-2), and in his last bout, Ramses Agaton (17-4-3). The event, which is promoted by Liveco Boxing, will feature Cornwall's own Tony Luis (22-3) battling Noe Nunez (17-4-1) in the ten-round lightweight main event.
Chavez also has some quality wins, as he holds victories over Johnny Navarrete (10-0-1), Manolis Plaitis (15-0-1), Rodolfo Ezequiel Martinez (40-7-1), and Alejandro Chavez (5-1). The 31 year-old Chavez is looking to get back in the win column after dropping two straight to undefeated fighters. In his last bout, Chavez was stopped by Jamie Munguia on October 22nd in Tijuana, Mexico.
In another undercard bout, Ronnie "Rocket" Robidoux (2-0) faces the rugged Jesus Ortega (2-3-1) of Mexico over four rounds. Robidoux, who trains in Cornwall under the tutelage of Jorge Luis, looks to add another knockout after a knockout victory over Donnis Reed in California last month.
Ireland's "Lethal" Larry Fryers (2-0), now residing in upstate New York, is set to clash against Mexico's Michel Polina (0-1) in a four-round welterweight bout. Fryers, who seeks to build on last month's knockout of Rolando Padilla, has a style of relentless aggression. More undercard bouts will be announced shortly.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.admission.com, by phone (613) 938-9400, or in person at the Cornwall Civic Complex box office. Doors open at 6:30 PM with the first bout scheduled for 8:00 PM.
