“I am happy to again bring Broadway Boxing back to our home away from home at Foxwoods Resort Casino,” said LOU DIBELLA, President of DiBella Entertainment. “The stacked card will include Shelly Vincent, a great ambassador for women’s boxing from Rhode Island, facing another former world title challenger in Edina Kiss, in what promises to be an entertaining battle, as well as a can’t-miss welterweight brawl between Massachusetts prospects Khiry Todd and Adrian Sosa. Foxwoods staple Mykquan Williams, from East Hartford, will also compete for his first title belt.”
Making her ninth appearance at Foxwoods Resort Casino, the popular SHELLY “SHELITO’S WAY” VINCENT (21-1, 1 KO), of Providence, Rhode Island, will square off against Budapest, Hungary’s EDINA KISS (14-6, 8 KOs), in a 10-round junior lightweight bout. Vincent has won three straight since her only defeat in August 2016 via majority decision to Heather Hardy in what The Ring Magazine hailed as the “Female Fight of the Year.” She was honored by the Connecticut Boxing Hall of Fame as their “Fighter of the Year” in 2016, becoming the first female recipient of the award. Managed by Mike Criscio and trained by Peter Manfredo Sr., Vincent last fought on October 28, defeating former world title challenger Calixta Silgado by unanimous decision. The battle-tested Kiss has also fought Hardy as well as both Amanda and Cindy Serrano.
