Harry Gigliotti vs. Samuel Forjoe on Jan.25
Boston Boxing Promotions has announced another fight for “Friday Night Fights” on January 25, 2019 at the Castleton Banquet and Conference Center in Windham, New Hampshire. Haverhill, Massachusetts’ Harry “The Hitman” Gigliotti will be making his pro debut in a four-round welterweight fight against Bronx, New York veteran Samuel Forjoe.
“I think I’ve peaked as an amateur boxer and now it’s time to go pro,” said Giglioti.
“I’ve been sparring and competing at what I feel like is a pro level. I have the perfect reach, height and body type for this game. It’s going to be a great fight but they call me ‘Harry the Hitman’ for a reason. I’m there to finish the fight.”
Gigliotti is 23-years-old and trains at the Haverhill Downtown Boxing club under the guidance of Ray Hebert and Brendon Simonds. He is a former finalist in the New England Golden Gloves.
Samuel Forjoe is a native of Ghana who has lived in Bronx, New York since he was six-years-old. He brings more experience against a higher level of opposition into his fight with the pro-debuting Gigliotti.
“I’m excited to be fighting in New Hampshire for the first time. I’ve been practicing a new fighting style that I feel comfortable with and I’ll have a great opportunity to showcase it in front of all the Boston Boxing Promotions fans,” said Forjoe.
