Gardner eyes return to super middleweight ranks

February 16, 2012

WOONSOCKET --- Joe Gardner is going back to the future.
No, he’s not going to jump in a DeLorean with Doc Brown and head back to 1955, but the Woonsocket Boxing Club boxer is going to go back to 2002 and ’03 and return to the weight class he fought in during those first two years of his career.
After absorbing stoppages in all three of his fights as a light heavyweight last year, Gardner will storm into 2012 as a super middleweight, where he posted a 4-0-1 record before taking a 7½-year sabbatical from the sport.
