Cusick & Alvarez to Throw Down on Windham Boxing Card

Windham, NH (February 24, 2023) – Boston Boxing Promotions has announced a four-round junior middleweight fight between Fall River, Massachusetts’ Kyle Cusick (4-2, 1 KO) and Bath, Maine’s Michael Alvarez (2-0, 2 KO’s) for Friday April 21, 2023, at the Castleton Banquet and Conference Center in Windham, New Hampshire. The fight has been added to a card that already features a ten-round welterweight fight between Brandon Higgins (9-3, 5 KO’S) and Brandon Berry (25-6-2, 18 KO’s) and a super bantamweight fight between Leesh Pike (1-0-1) and Philadelphia’s Sandy “Bang Bang” Chheng.

Both Cusick and Alvarez have fought all of their respective professional fights under the Boston Boxing Promotions banner. Cusick turned pro in 2020 in a pandemic era show losing a competitive decision to Haverhill’s Joshua Raineri. He would then rack off four consecutive wins against Jay Gregory (twice), Paulo Desouza and Eddie Gates – all four fights were amongst the most entertaining on the individual cards they were featured on. In his most recent bout, Cusick dropped a decision to Tony Andreozzi who would then go on to win the Massachusetts’ State Middleweight Championship.

“Michael is a young, tough undefeated opponent, but these are the types of fights I’d like to take to continue challenging myself,” said Cusick. “I’m not here to waste time. I’m here to fight.”

Alvarez made his pro debut back in November with a first-round TKO over Kreaton Crouse. He returned in January with another opening round stoppage victory over Jay Gregory. Gregory represents the lone common opponent both Alvarez and Cusick have faced.

While Gregory competed in eight rounds of scheduled boxing with Cusick over the course of two fights, he lasted less than one round with Alvarez. However, whereas Alvarez’s pro career has lasted cumulatively less than the three-minute duration of a single round of boxing, Cusick is vastly more experienced going into deep waters, having competed in 23 rounds of scheduled boxing across six fights.

“When it comes to fighting Kyle Cusick, I approach it like any other fight,” said Alvarez. “I’ve fought and sparred with guys that have way more experience and/or accolades than me, and it makes you remember everyone’s just a man when it comes to getting in the ring. This will be a step up in competition, but ultimately I plan on finishing the fight the same way.”
