CES Announces Massive Homecoming Card on March 23

CES Boxing comes home to Bally's Twin River Lincoln Casino on March 23 with a stacked pro card and the 'Jimmy Burchfield's Classic Invitational' all in one special night.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Thursday, February 29, 2024

LINCOLN, RI – CES Boxing returns to Rhode Island on Saturday, March 23, with a huge doubleheader at Bally’s Twin River Lincoln Casino.

The popular Jimmy Burchfield Classic Invitational amateur showcase kicks off the day's festivities at 2pm, followed by a stacked professional boxing card beginning at 7pm EST.

Tickets available soon at CES Fights and the Twin River Lincoln Casino box office, priced at $60, $80, $155, and $180 for the pro card and $40 general admission, $50 VIP for the amateur showcase.

Dominican sensation Alejandro "El Abusador" Paulino (16-0, 13 KOs) gets his first main event assignment on the pro card, battling Estivan "Tunny" Falcao (13-3, 7 KOs) in an 8-round lightweight showdown.

While many believe that the New London, CT resident is destined to become CES Boxing’s next world champion, in his way is a tough-as-nails Brazilian who is no stranger to ruining undefeated records.

In the co-feature, popular New Bedford, MA welterweight Wilson "Ill Will" Mascarenhas (9-1, 3 KOs) faces battle-tested Dominican Braulio "El Chavo" Rodriguez (20-9, 17 KOs) in a 6-round contest.

Mascarenhas, who recently re-signed with CES Boxing, looks forward to making 2024 a big year after going 3-0 with 1 knockout in 2023. The Portuguese native faces a wily veteran in Rodriguez who has shared the ring with 2-time world title challenger Christopher "Pitufo" Diaz, jr. welterweight star Ryan Garcia, and lightweight prospect Ashton Sylve.

A vacant New England Lightweight championship will be on the line when Brockton, MA’s "King" Kevin Walsh (11-0, 5 KOs) meets 18-fight veteran Matt "The Mantis" Doherty in an 8-round slugfest.

Walsh, who is fresh off a highlight reel, one punch knockout of Darrell Rivera only 3 weeks ago, is looking to capitalize on that momentum with his first professional title.

Springfield, MA’s Jalen Renaud (9-0, 3 KOs) is in the toughest test of his young career, facing Puerto Rico’s Josniel Castro (11-1, 8 KOs) in what is sure to be a jr. middleweight firefight.

Several other top New England prospects are featured on the card, including East Haven welterweight prospect Jeff Gonzalez (4-0, 2 KOs), Dorchester lightweight puncher Tevin Regis (2-0, 1 KO), popular Norton, MA featherweight Melanie Costa (2-0, 1 KO), the pro debut of Johnston welterweight Kevin Mojica, and the return of undefeated Bridgeport super featherweight prospect Jacob Marrero (4-0, 3 KOs) after a 5-year hiatus.

Prior to the pro card, fans will be treated to the Jimmy Burchfield Classic Invitational amateur showcase, a USA boxing sanctioned card featuring many of the best prospects in the United States.

Come and witness the present and future of boxing on what is sure to be another unforgettable night of CES Boxing action!
