Hyannis, Massachusetts [October 1, 2015] – Professional boxing will return to Cape Cod for the second time this calendar year on Saturday, November 28, 2015 at Barnstable High School. In the main event, Northeast Heavyweight Champion Jesse Barboza (10-1-1, 6 KO’s) will put his title on the line in an eight-round fight against an opponent to be named at a later date. Tickets are on sale now at

Barboza, a 2004 graduate of Barnstable High School and former team football captain, is excited about the opportunity to compete at his alma mater.

“The energy was electric when I fought in Hyannis for the first time over the summer”, said Barboza, who won the Northeast Title with a crushing first-round knockout (KO) of Pennsylvania’s Jesse Oltmanns at the Hyannis Youth & Community Center (HYCC) in August, “I can’t wait to see how it’ll be on Thanksgiving weekend when everyone’s home for the holiday. It’s nice that Cape Cod is starting to develop a pro boxing scene.”

The event will be presented by Boston Boxing Promotions and will feature a full undercard of supporting bouts as well. Harwich light heavyweight Paul Gonsalves will compete in a separate bout as well. Gonsalves (8-7, 4 KO’s) is coming off a first round technical knockout (TKO) over Mexico’s Rafael Valenzuela in August and looks to extend his winning streak.

Boston Boxing Promotions first foray into Cape Cod was a success over the summer. The event featured five professional boxing matches, was attended by a capacity crowd of over 800 spectators and featured two knockout’s that will be in consideration for KO of the year. Full length video of the bouts from that night will soon be available online in anticipation of Boxing’s returning to Cape Cod on November 28th.

The event will be presented by Boston Boxing Promotions. Boston Boxing Promotions is dedicated to the resurgence of professional boxing at the regional level, particularly in the New England area.
