Windham, NH [March 13, 2018] – Boston Boxing Promotions has announced a 4 round light heavyweight fight between Boston’s Julio Perez Campusano (1-0, 1 KO) and Schenectady, New York’s Eric Abraham (2-2) to take place on Saturday, April 28 at the Castleton Banquet and Conference Center in Windham, New Hampshire.
This fight has been added to a card already featuring a welterweight bout between Haverhill’s “Irish” Tommy O’Connell (1-0) and Maine’s Bruce Boyington (1-0) and a heavyweight matchup between New Jersey’s Brendan Barrett (6-0-2, 5 KO’s) and Boston’s Tracey Johnson (4-6-4).
“I’m excited to be fighting at the Castleton again. Last time the atmosphere was electric, the crowd was the best, and I was satisfied with my victory,” said Campusano.
“On April 28th, I’ll be ready for a war. Blood, knockdowns, a crazy fight – I’ll be ready for it all, and I’m sure my opponent will be too.”
Campusano made his pro debut in Windham in January, needing less than 90 seconds to score a knockout win over Woburn’s Rene Nazare. Abraham, a naturally bigger man who has fought as heavy as cruiserweight, was present that night and has no problem coming to New Hampshire for a fight. In his most recent bout, he won a six-round unanimous decision over fellow New Yorker Damian Lewis last September.
“I’m excited about getting back in the ring after seven months off and showing the progress I’ve made in the gym,” said Abraham.
“I’m excited about fighting Campusano as well. I was at his last fight in New Hampshire, and I think he’s a decent fighter. The venue was great, and the fans brought a lot of energy and excitement into the building. I predict our fight will be the fight of the night.”
Boston Boxing Promotions has announced a heavyweight fight featuring undefeated “Brutal” Brendan Barrett (6-0-2, 5 KO’s) from New Jersey taking on Boston’s Tracey “The Titan” Johnson (4-6-5), in a six-round bout on Saturday, April 28 at the Castleton Banquet and Conference Center in Windham, New Hampshire.
Barrett, a popular rising heavyweight from New Jersey, will be making his Boston Boxing Promotions debut on this card. Johnson will be returning for his second fight in Windham as he fought to a draw against Maine’s Cristiano Pedro in an entertaining slugfest that opened the night for the first ever pro boxing event in Windham this past January.
“I’m looking forward to my New Hampshire debut and my first fight with Boston Boxing Promotions. I don’t know much about my opponent, but as a veteran of 15 professional fights I feel he will be a good test for me as I continue to fine tune my transition from MMA to boxing,” said Barrett.
Prior to turning to pro boxing full time, Barrett was the Ring of Combat Heavyweight Champion in Mixed Martial Arts. While originally from New Jersey, he splits time training in Cape Cod. Barrett is hoping to turn a win on April 28 into a big fight later this summer. In recent years, he was prominently featured alongside Oprah Winfrey in an article in “O Magazine” discussing his love of drinking tea.
Johnson, the brother of former junior middleweight world champion Demetrius Andrade, has proven time and time again his willingness to fight the best of the best prospects in boxing. While he gives up height and weight to Barrett in this fight, he feels he is the more skilled of the two fighters and it will show on fight night.
“It’ll feel good to fight near my hometown for the second time this year,” said Johnson, who has routinely fought in places like Philadelphia, Atlanta and Las Vegas over the course of his career.
“I expect a good fight, and like Bill Belichick always asks of his players, I will do my job.”
