Jr. Added To Stacked "Riot At The Rim"

Undefeated New England prospects Tramaine "The Mighty
Midget" Williams and Anthony Marsella, Jr. have been added
to an already loaded "Riot at The Rim" card, featuring three
title fights, on Friday night, April 12, at The Rim in
Hampton, New Hampshire.
"Riot at The Rim", a presentation of Granite Chin Promotions
(GSP), will be headlined by an eight-round New England
welterweight title fight between former New England
welterweight champion Derek "The Surgeon" Silveira (15-2, 8
KOs), fighting out of Salem, MA, and Travis "The Outlaw"
Demko (8-1, 1 KO), of Stoughton, MA, for the vacant N.E.
"We're excited to add two of the most talented boxers in New
England, Tramaine Williams and Antony Marsella, Jr., to the
best top-to-bottom card Granite Chin has ever promoted,"
promoter/ fighter Chris Traietti said. "We've made a planned
effort to upgrade our shows in 2019. Not only do we have
many of the most talented and popular New England boxers on
this card, we have three title fights, topped by Derek
Silveira and Demko for the vacant New England Welterweight
The 26-year-old Williams (16-0, 6 KOs), fighting out of New
Haven, CT, is a former 10-time national amateur champion,
who will be fighting battle-tested Mexican Ernesto "Monito"
Guerrero (31-26, 21 KOs). He was ranked among the top 10
featherweights in the world, but his inactivity, fighting
only in 2018, cost him his ranking. The slick southpaw last
fought this past February, stopping 32-8 Jose Alfredo
Rodriguez in the opening round. Williams is promoted by Roc
"How many fighters can say they've been through half of what
I've endured? Add that to continuing to fight at a high
level and dominate the way I have, and I promise you the
answer is none," Williams commented. "I'm looking forward to
carrying on the way I have. Stay tuned as the story
"Tramaine is on a fast track mission to keep busy and then
get his world title shot as soon as possible," said Roc
Nation Sports boxing promoter Dino Duva. "This April 12th
fight continues that mission. I want to thank my old friend
Chris Traietti with providing this slot for Tramaine. It's
always a pleasure to work with him."

part of the Mayweather Promotions stable, will go against
Engleberto "Guarura" Valenzuela (11-15, 3 KOs), of Mexico.
