Windham, NH  [August 22, 2018] – Boston Boxing Promotions has announced its first featured fight for the Thanksgiving Eve boxing spectacular to be held Wednesday, November 21st at The Castleton Banquet and Conference Center in Windham, New Hampshire.

In his pro debut, Brockton, Massachusetts’ Edet Mkpanam will take on Maine’s Justin Rolfe (1-0, 1 KO) in a four-round heavyweight bout that pits southern New England vs. northern New England.

“It’s time,” Mkpanam said in regards to turning pro, “I’m expecting a ton of fans to come out. I will continue to train hard and be ready to put on a great performance. Just be ready for a good fight.”

Mkpanam, sharing the same hometown as former heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano and middleweight champion Marvelous Marvin Hagler, finished his amateur career with a record of 8-3 before deciding to turn pro. His amateur career culminated with a title win at the Marciano Tournament in 2017 and the Southern New England Golden Gloves in 2018.

Justin Rolfe turned pro earlier this year scoring two knockdowns en route to forcing his opponent, Mike Hansen, to retire on his stool after just one round in April. As an amateur, he was a New England Heavyweight Golden Gloves Champion.

“I don’t underestimate anyone, and I will treat this fight like I treat every fight by being prepared and ready,” said Rolfe.

“I’ve been training very hard and am ready to go the distance if it comes to that. I am confident I will win and will have my hand raised when it’s all said and done. He should be prepared for a grueling fight and the fans should be prepared to see the best fight of the night.”
