New London, CT: When heavyweight prospect Cassius Chaney steps into the ring on July 25, 2015 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada to face Edward Ramirez, in addition to his trainer Peter Manfredo, he will have his long-time mentor former NBA star Vin Baker in his corner. Baker has been Chaney’s mentor for more than ten years and their bond continues to grow stronger as Chaney seeks navigate the rough waters of professional boxing.
Main Events adds two new fighters to their already impressive stable with the signing of two New England prospects: middleweight Thomas “The Souljah” Falowo (13-3, 8 KOs) of Providence, Rhode Island and heavyweight Cassius Chaney (1-0, 1 KO) of New Haven, Connecticut.
