Gardner defends EBA title on March 16 in Boston

March 3, 2011

WOONSOCKET --- You will have to forgive Joe Gardner if he’s been a little antsy this winter.

“I’m not used to this,” added Gardner. “It’s been longer than I expected. I’ve been itching for a fight and I was hoping to jump in there right away.”
But Gardner knows his wait won’t be long.
