Nashua, NH [July 31, 2019] – Boston Boxing Promotions today announced that Sully Erna, lead singer for multi-platinum hard rock band Godsmack, will take a on new role on Friday, August 16th at “Scars for Scars” – an evening of professional boxing to benefit The Scars Foundation.  Erna will be a professionally-licensed cornerman for Light Heavyweight boxer David Tubbs as Tubbs makes his pro debut against Ranieri Souza in a four-round fight.

Erna, a boxing enthusiast who routinely works boxing into his fitness routines while at home and on the road, will be in Tubbs’ corner with Joseph Janik and Chris Jay of KnuckleHeadz gym in Ventura, California. Janik also trains current WBA Super Featherweight World Champion Andrew Cancio and world-rated contender Francisco “Chia” Santana. 

“I recently met Sully through a mutual friend. We hit it off immediately,” said Joe “Hoss” Janik, a world class trainer who is 2-0 working corners in world title fights in 2019. “I was impressed with Sully’s knowledge and passion for boxing. I spoke with David and we agreed that it would be great for him to join us to share some knowledge in the locker room and in the corner.”

“Anyone who knows me, knows what a passion I have for boxing,” said Sully Erna when reached for comment.  “I’ve spent the last 19 years training and learning from so many great coaches from Freddie Roach’s camp, to one of New England’s best boxing coaches, Julio Peña right here in Londonderry, NH.  So I’m extremely honored to have been asked to work this corner with Joe Janik.  He’s the real deal, and so is his fighter David Tubbs.  Wait ’til you see this dude fight.  It is going to be a phenomenal night of pro boxing!” 

The night is scheduled to consist of eight professional boxing matches and raffle items to benefit The Scars Foundation a charity established to raise awareness of mental health issues and provide resources and tools to educate and empower people on a global level that struggle with burdens such as bullying, addiction, abuse, depression and more.

Godsmack’s latest album, “When Legends Rise” was released last year. The current single from that album “Under Your Scars” is #1 on rock radio in the United States. It is the band’s third #1 rock single in a row from their latest album and their tenth #1 rock single overall.
