First Fight Announced for Windham Boxing Event Promises Non-Stop Action

Windham, NH – [March 8, 2019] – Boston Boxing Promotions has announced the first fight to be featured on Friday May 31, 2019 at the Castleton Banquet and Conference Center in Windham, New Hampshire.  Springfield, Massachusetts’ undefeated Joshua Orta (3-0, 2 KO’s) will take on Portland, Maine’s Ernesto Ornelas (1-1, 1 KO) in a four-round super featherweight bout.

“It’s one fight at a time for me and right now this fight is everything for me,” said Orta.

“I hope my opponent has a great training camp and is looking to come in as best prepared as he can be just like I will. I’m hungry, I love this and I cannot wait for fight day!”

Orta made his Boston Boxing Promotions debut in Windham in January earning himself a unanimous decision victory over Connecticut’s Danny Morales. It was the first time Orta was forced to go the distance in his young career.  He will be stepping up his level of opposition significantly against Maine’s Ernesto Ornelas. 

Ornelas is a former nationally rated amateur. Originally from Santa Ana, California where he won multiple Golden Gloves titles, Ornelas now lives in Maine where he offers personal training in boxing, kick-boxing and mixed martial arts. He was a standout wrestler at Springfield Technical Community College and the University of  Southern Maine. Aside from two pro boxing matches, Ornelas is also a veteran of a dozen MMA cagefights.

“I’m looking toward to be lacing up my boots and gloves and showing my skills from a lifetime of training and knowledge of the sport of boxing,” said Ornelas.

“I expect Josh to show up with a lot of heart and will, and I plan on countering that with some good ol’ boxing skills.”
