Cody Crowley’s Homecoming II

Saturday September 30th 2017 in Peterborough Ontario at the Peterborough Memorial Center with another full house was nothing short of just an electrifying night of Professional Boxing as Cody ( The Crippler ) Crowley defended his C.P.B.C. International light middleweight title with a 6th round TKO of Jamaican Richard ( The Frog ) Holmes who could not come out to continue fighting. Until that moment the fight was very exciting and and action packed but the Crippler showed he was to fast and to strong for his opponent. The show was also lined up with a amazing under card that left fans on the edge of their seat. There was not a dull moment from the first round of the first bout to the last round of the main event. Another great show put on by the promoters that fans will be asking and waiting patiently for the next one.

Lawrence had a big following of fans students and very well known and respected in the sport of boxing.He will be sadly missed by all his friends and family and the boxing community. RIP Lawrence.

Laviolette goes to Philly to get action

Philly Fight Night returns Sept 8
Junior lightweight Avery Sparrow, who insists on “meaningful fights” to boost his resume, finds himself in with another toughie when he boxes former four-time Canadian national amateur champion Joey Laviolette in the scheduled eight-round main event Friday evening, Sept. 8, at the 2300 Arena.

The Sparrow-Laviolette contest tops a nine-bout card which begins at 7.30 pm.

The 23-year-old Sparrow (right) is having a good year. In his last fight June 27 at the Sands Casino Bethlehem (PA), Sparrow scored two knockdowns and was knocked down twice himself while earning a unanimous six-round decision over previously unbeaten (6-0) southpaw Isaelin Florian, of the Dominican Republic. Earlier in 2017 at the 2300 Arena, Sparrow scored the fight’s lone knockdown while scoring an eight-round split decision over crosstown rival Anthony Burgin.

A pro since 2014, Sparrow is 7-1, 3 K0s, having lost only by disqualification (repeated low blows) to Jerome Rodriguez, of Allentown, PA, late in 2015 at the 2300 Arena.

Laviolette, 29, of Halifax, Nova Scotia, is 6-0, 4 K0s, as a pro after a prolific amateur career in which he won 85 out of 111 bouts and was a member of the Canadian National Team from 2009 to 2011.

“It’s a big opportunity to showcase my skills against a good fighter,” Laviolette said. “This will be my first professional fight outside of Canada, but going to somebody else’s hometown to fight never bothered me as an amateur and I don’t think it’ll bother me as a professional.”

“I feel I’m right where I need to be at 6-0 and this is a perfect point in my career to have a true test against Sparrow.”

A pro since 2012, Laviolette (below left) has boxed twice this year against a pair of Mexican featherweights. He out-pointed Juan Manuel Benitez over four rounds and stopped Emmanuel Villamar in six. Both fights were in New Brunswick, Canada.

“I really don’t care how many amateur titles he (Laviolette) won,” Sparrow said. “For all I care, he could have gone to the Olympics and won a Gold Medal. But this in Philadelphia and I’m a Philadelphia fighter.”

The six-round junior middleweight semifinal features the return of Philly-Killer Roque Zapata, of Culpeper, VA. In two previous trips to the 2300 Arena, Zapata (4-1-3) has beaten local standouts Isaiah Wise and Fred Jenkins, Jr. This time he goes against Elijah Vines, of the Germantown section of the city, who is 4-0, 4 K0s.

Fighting unbeaten opponents in their hometowns is nothing new for the 21-year-old Zapata, who upset previously undefeated local hero Justin Steave (6-0) on June 24 in Pittsburgh, PA.

Vines represents the fifth undefeated fighter Zapata has faced, all on the road. The 22-year-old Vines stopped Harry Tyrone Paige, of Batesville, AK, in his last fight June 10 in Atlantic City, NJ. The fight with Zapata will be Vines’ first local appearance, having boxed twice in Atlantic City and twice in Bristol, PA.

Seven additional fights complete the Sept. 8 card. Among those featured will be Wise, welterweight Marcel Rivers and junior welterweight Victor Padilla.

Cody Crowley C.P.B.C. International Champion

The homecoming event on May 13th 2017 in Peterborough Ontario was a history making event.
The Memorial Civic Center was jammed packed to the rafter’s and after 36 years without
any professional boxing the people got more then they ever expected.The Homecoming promoted by CCC Promotions and United promotions (Tyler Buxton ) was nothing short of a world class event. The undercard was exciting and full of action and kept people in their seats till finally their hero came to the ring and when the bell rang Cody Crowley and his opponent Edgar Ortega (Mexico) went at it and they never let up till the bell rang at the end of the 10th and final round with Cody Crowley winning the main event via unanimous decision
and taking the C.P.B.C.International Light- Middle weight Championship. I guess its safe to say after an event like this one the people in Peterborough Ontario wont have to wait another 36 years before another show. Plans are being discussed for another show, with a date to be announced later.
