Windham, NH (May 22, 2023) – Boston Boxing Promotions has announced the main event for “The Great American Bash 2” to be held Friday, July 14 at the Castleton in Windham, New Hampshire as Chelmsford, Massachusetts’ Brandon Higgins (10-3, 5 KO’s) takes on Salem, Massachusetts’ Kenny Larson (6-0, 5 KO’s) in an eight-round welterweight fight.

This main event will take place along with the already announced fights between heavyweights Jonathan Gruber (4-2, 2 KO’s) and Dennis Ventura (5-2, 4 KO’s), female super bantamweights Leesh Pike (2-0-1) and Shawna Ormsby (0-0-1), cruiserweights Matt Cronin (1-0, 1 KO) and Max DaSilva, and super middleweights James Maner (3-0, 2 KOs) and Elielson Alves Da Silva.

Higgins is coming off a career best win last month at the Castleton with a unanimous decision over Maine’s Brandon Berry (25-7-2, 18 KO’s). Just last year he earned a unanimous decision over Fall River’s Dustin Reinhold (7-6, 3 KO’s) in a slugfest in Melrose that was deemed Boston Boxing Promotions “Fight of the Year”.

“I’m just beginning to scratch the surface of my abilities,” said Higgins. “I’m going to keep on continuing to improve and it’ll show on July 14th. Considering we’re both aggressive and like to come forward, I expect nothing short of fireworks.”

Larson is no stranger to action packed fights himself. He has knocked out every fighter he’s ever been in the ring with as a professional. In his most recent outing, he was extended the distance for the first time against Ryan Clark earning a decision win when Clark stepped in to replace his original opponent who withdrew from the fight. Previously, he had stopped Clark in their first encounter. The video of his April 2022 beatdown of Jay Gregory, which ultimately ended with Larson scoring a fourth-round TKO, has been used in internationally recognized judging clinics to properly demonstrate a 10-8 round without a knockdown.

“I’m excited to be in the main event and to get the chance to compete against someone with as quality of a reputation as Brandon Higgins,” said Larson. “We both know each and this is business so we’re going to handle this as two professionals. I have nothing against him, but he’s standing in my way, and I’ll handle the situation as it calls for given that fact.”
