WOONSOCKET --- You will have to forgive Joe Gardner if heâ€™s been a little antsy this winter.
After fighting four times during a seven-month span last year and winning the EBA (Eastern Boxing Association) New England light heavyweight title last November, the Woonsocket Boxing Club fighter has gone the last four months without a bout.
â€śIâ€™m not used to this,â€ť added Gardner. â€śItâ€™s been longer than I expected. Iâ€™ve been itching for a fight and I was hoping to jump in there right away.â€ť
But Gardner knows his wait wonâ€™t be long.
WOONSOCKET â€“ Two years ago, Mount St. Charles Academy was the top seed from Division II-North. Instead of advancing far into the playoffs, however, the Mounties saw their season come to an abrupt close with a shocking two-point loss to Scituate in the preliminary round.
