Nate Balakin Returns to the Ring on January 27

Windham, NH (December 21, 2022) – Boston Boxing Promotions has announced a four-round welterweight fight between Tyngsboro’s Nate Balakin (4-2, 2 KO’s) and Cortland, New York’s Michael Taylor to take place as part of the Friday January 27, 2023, fight card at the Castleton Banquet and Conference Center in Windham, New Hampshire.

Balakin will be making his first appearance at the Castleton in over a year. In his most recent outing, he scored a second round TKO over Nicaraguan journeyman Julio Buitrago this past October in Massachusetts.

“I’m pumped to get back with Boston Boxing Promotions and excited to get in the ring with a game opponent coming off a big win,” said Balakin. “I love a competitive fight. I’ve been working hard sticking to routine and feeling more comfortable and confident with every fight. I’m going to get in there, work hard and hopefully get the finish.”

Michael Taylor is coming off an impressive performance in an all-action war against Methuen, Massachusetts’ Jordan Yantin (2-1, 2 KO’s) on Thanksgiving Eve in Windham. In a rock ’em sock’ em slugfest, Taylor scored a knockdown en route to a unanimous decision victory in a candidate for “Fight of the Night.”

Doors will open at 6 pm with first fight taking place at 7 pm on January 27 at the Castleton. Tickets are on sale now at
