Amateur Middleweight Rivalry Carries Over to Pros in FNF Opener on Jan. 30

Mashantucket, CT:During their amateur careers New England middleweights Russell Lamour (11-0, 5 KOs), of Portland, Maine, and Thomas Falowo (12-3, 8 KOs), of Pawtucket, Rhode Island, met several times, with Lamour defeating Falowo all but once.
