CUMBERLAND â€” 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, â€śNot right now. Wait a second!â€ť
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: â€śSorry. Youâ€™ve gotta know whatâ€™s truly important!â€ť
LINCOLN â€” Itâ€™s a 45-minute drive from Pawtucket to Manfredoâ€™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 wonâ€™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.â€™s â€śHome Sweet Homeâ€ť card.
