Windham, NH  [December 26, 2017] – Former world champion, “The Fleet Street Fury” Tony DeMarco (58-12-1, 33 KO’s), will be the special guest of honor at the boxing event January 27th  at the Castleton Banquet and Conference Center in Windham, New Hampshire. That night’s event will feature Maine’s Brandon Berry (11-2-2, 7 KO’s) taking on Pennsylvania’s Bryan Goldsby in a six-round welterweight fight, the pro debut of Haverhill’s Tommy O’Connell as he takes on New York’s Bryan Abraham, and Springfield’s Anthony Velazquez vs. Vermont’s Andre Belcarris in a four-round welterweight fight.

DeMarco, a legend in Boston’s North End, where there is a statue in his likeness at the corners of Hanover and Cross Streets, headlined the old Boston Garden more than any fighter in history. He won the welterweight world championship in 1955 with a 14th round TKO over reigning champ Johnny Saxton in Syracuse, NY. He would lose the title later that year to Hall of Famer Carmen Basilio in a brutal 12-round fight back at the Garden that was named “Fight of the Year” by Ring Magazine. DeMarco also headlined the last boxing event ever to be held at Boston’s Fenway Park in 1956.

On January 27th, he will be available for autographs and pictures and will be selling copies of his autobiography, “Nardo: Memoirs of a Boxing Champion.”
