Hendricken floors Cumberland in marquee matchup

February 21, 2014

CUMBERLAND — Perhaps two minutes after Cumberland High had sustained a 49-12 dual-meet loss to rival Hendricken in a match to clinch the Division I title, veteran mentor Steve Gordon managed to keep his sense of humor.
When a reporter approached him for a few thoughts Thursday night, he immediately said, “Not right now. Wait a second!”
He approached his wife, Judy, gave her a kiss, handled a couple of other minor details, then relented to an interview.
His first response, with a wide grin: “Sorry. You’ve gotta know what’s truly important!”

Kahn-Clary's back in R.I., fights tonight at Twin River

February 21, 2014

LINCOLN — It’s a 45-minute drive from Pawtucket to Manfredo’s Boxing & Fitness in Narragansett for Toka Kahn-Clary and Thomas Falowo, and because of the 72 miles they have to travel roundtrip to work out with their trainer, Peter Manfredo Sr., the two often carpool back and forth each night.
But tonight, they won’t have to share a ride. Instead, they will make a short trip to the Twin River Event Center and appear in separate six-round bouts on Classic Entertainment & Sports, Inc.’s “Home Sweet Home” card.
