The body work is what put him down,”said LaManna. “I took some shots from him, but that is not what I go in wanting to do. I wore him down, worked the body, touched his arms and touched his body.”

“It feels so great to win a championship and to get that hardware.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Atlantic City, NJ (July 14, 2017)–Welterweight contender, Thomas “Cornflake” LaManna will take on George Sosa for the WBC Silver Latino Welterweight championship in the ten-round main event that will headline a great night of championship boxing on Saturday, August 19th at The Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City.
The show is expected to be the 9th sold-out show at the Claridge promoted by Rising Promotions.
“Rising Promotions  is looking forward to ending the Summer with another great show here at the Claridge.   We have a good line up on the card so we are hoping for a packed house, and we are looking forward to staging our first championship bout,” said Debbie LaManna of Rising Promotions.
The championship bout is the first major sanctioning body championship bout in Atlantic City in almost three years.  (Kovalev vs Hopkins, November 8, 2014).
LaManna will be looking to win his first belt in the welterweight division.  A win will propel him into the rankings as he looks for a high profile bout later this year.
The 25 year-old LaManna has a record of 23-2 with nine knockouts, and he is currently riding a two fight win streak, and is undefeated in 2017.
The six-year professional is 4-1 as a Welterweight and has credible wins over Kendal Mena, and Ayi Bruce as well as his last two victories, which have come over Eduardo Flores and Carlos Winston Velasquez, who stepped into the ring with 52 and 54 fights under their belt.
LaManna dropped a ten-round unanimous decision to undefeated Dusty Hernandez-Harrison (30-0-1 16 KO’s) on September 15th, 2016 in a very high intense battle that was contested for the USBA Title. The LaManna/Harrison fight is a candidate for Fight of the Year for local Philadelphia boxing award “Briscoe Award”
This will be LaManna’s 6th fight at The Claridge, and his 16th fight in Atlantic City.
“This is a great blessing for me. I get another shot at a meaningful title that will place me in the right spots with a victory. I have seen Sosa fight on our last card and he is very game, durable and strong so I cannot take him lightly. Training camp is intense, we know what we are gunning for so come August 19th, it’s going to be dark places for George Sosa,” Said Thomas LaManna.
Sosa of Philadelphia, PA has a record of 15-9 with all victories coming by way of knockout.
The 30 year-old Sosa is a high energy fighter, who has fought the likes of Emmanuel Taylor, Sammy Vasquez, Wilkens Santiago, Javontae Starks, Terrell Gausha and Ray Robinson.
Like LaManna, Sosa is a six-year professional, and is coming off a grueling eight-round unanimous decision defeat to Anthony Young on June 10th at The Claridge.
In the eight-round co-feature, former world cruiserweight champion, Imamu Mayfield will take on upset minded Lamont Capers.
Mayfield of Freehold, New Jersey has a record of 26-10-2 with 19 knockouts.  At a young 45 years-old, Mayfield is making the 3rd start since taking an eight-year hiatus from the sport.
In 1997, Mayfield captured the IBF Cruiserweight title with a 12-round unanimous decision over Uriah Grant.  He made one defense of the crown with an 11th round stoppage over previously undefeated Terry Dunston (17-0).
Over his 23 year-career, Mayfield has racked up wins over Rayco Saunders (Twice), Okello Peter (11-2), Gary Wilcox (15-2-1), Ernest Mateen (23-5-1), Ismael Gneco (3-0) & Lew Chester (1-0).
Mayfield is coming off a sixth-round stoppage over Anthony Caputo Smith on November 12, 2016 at The Claridge.
Capers of Hawley, PA has a deceiving record of 7-10-2.
The 26 year-old is a five-year pro, and already has produced upset victories over Nick Kisner (16-2-1), Josh Himes (3-0), Dave Valykeo (4-0) & Earl Platt (4-1).  Capers also has a draw with previously unblemished Alvin Vermall, Jr. (6-0).

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Atlantic City, NJ (March 8, 2017)–Undefeated heavyweight Brendan Barrett returns to the boxing this Saturday night at the Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City.
 
Barrett will take on Philly tough guy Brian Donahue in a bout scheduled for 4-rounds.
The Show is promoted by Rising Promotions.
Barrett of Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey has a pro boxing record of 4-0-2 with 4 knockouts, and will be making his return to the ring after being out of the squared circle for 11 months.  In his last boxing match, he stopped Alando Pugh in 2 rounds in Atlantic City.
Barrett, who is an MMA veteran of 19 fights last fought in the cage on September 23rd.
“Everything is going well,”said Barrett.  “My focus has been on boxing, and since my last boxing match, I have been focusing more on strength and conditioning plus my diet.  Fans will see a bigger version of me.  You can really see the transformation as I been concentrating a lot on what I eat and meal prepping on my Facebook and Instagram accounts.”
In Donahue, he is facing a guy whose record reads just 3-13-3, but Donahue is known for his hard nosed style and is always a tough-out.
“Donahue is a tough guy.  A brawler, and is a hard guy to stop”
The 11 month layoff was not something that Barrett wanted.  He was scheduled to fight during the summer, but opponents have been hard to come by.
“I am always looking at opportunities to fight.  I had 7 or 8 opponents fall through on me, so I took the MMA fight in September.”
Going back and forth between boxing isn’t a problem for Barrett as he has a gameplan on how he bides his time between the 2 sports.
“It all depends on the opportunity.  I make more money in MMA, but I am very interested in boxing.  After this fight there could be some boxing opportunities in China, so I am still gathering all the information on that.”
This will be Barrett’s 3rd consecutive fight on the boardwalk, and that is conducive for his fans in Little Egg Harbor, which is just up the coast on the Jersey Shore.
“My job is to fight, but it is always great to have the fans and support.  When the bell rings, It’s only me and him in there, but to have my fans there gives me more motivation.  I am looking for an exciting and explosive fight on Saturday.”
“I want to thank my sponsors which are Sweet Jenny’s in Barnegat, The Law Offices of Paulie Haberman, Adventure Vapors in Manahawkin and Eric Sauer of Natural Pharmacy.

Casarez of Batesville, Arkansas has a record of 13-5 with 5 knockouts.
The 26 year-old is a five year-professional.  On July 9, 2016, Casarez traveled all the way to Chengdu, China, and won a 12-round unanimous decision and upset the previously undefeated Ronnakit Boontree (8-0) to capture the NABF Junior Lightweight title.
On October 29, he defended that title with 12-round unanimous decision over Blake Franklin in Batesville, Arkansas.
“I watched some tape of Young, and he is fast and moves well,” said Casarez.  “I know that I am stronger, and will bring pressure to him.  I feel confident after the win in China.  That fight gave me good experience and it taught me that I just need to be in 100% condition to win fights, and it really does not matter where I fight.”
