LINCOLN, RI – CES Boxing will host a press conference at Lighthouse Bar in Bally's Twin River Lincoln Casino on Tuesday, April 30th featuring several Rhode Island boxers who will see action at 'The Brawl at Bally's' on May 11th.

In attendance will be Cranston native Gary "Batman" Balletto (4-0, 2 KOs) and his opponent, Laurent Humes, a power punching light heavyweight sporting a perfect record of 10-0 with 10 knockouts. The pair will meet for the vacant NABF Jr. Light Heavyweight Championship.

While Balletto only has 4 professional boxing bouts under his belt, boxing is a family trade. His father, Gary "Tiger" Balletto, was a destructive puncher who retired with a record of 31-3-2 with 26 knockouts, winning the IBU world lightweight championship along the way. Balletto III is an accomplished fighter in his own right. 'Batman' has trained in boxing, Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, and Wrestling since he was 8 years old. In fact, the 29-year-old is 9-3 in Mixed Martial Arts, winning CES MMA world titles in two weight classes in his last 2 outings.

In his way stands Humes, a 30-year-old who has knocked out all 10 of his foes. The Springfield, MA native began his pro career 3 years ago, but has already garnered a reputation for being a fearsome puncher.

In addition to Balletto and Humes, hall-of-fame, multi-division champion Jaime "The Hurricane" Clampitt (25-6-2, 7 KOs) will be in attendance as she prepares for her 34th professional fight on June 15 in Connecticut.

CES Boxing cordially invites members of the press, boxing fans, and the local community to join us at Lighthouse Bar to hear more from the fighters, their trainers and promoter.

Details for the press conference are as follows:

Date: Tuesday, April 30th

Time: 3pm EST

Location: Lighthouse Bar at Bally's Twin River Lincoln Casino, 100 Twin River Road, Lincoln, RI 02865
