Gardner suffers tough loss at Foxwoods

April 2, 2011

MASHANTUCKET, Conn. — Woonsocket’s Joe Gardner got exactly what he wanted on Friday night -- a very competitive fight against a former world title challenger in front of a near sellout at Foxwoods Resort Casino’s Fox Theater and a nationally-televised ESPN “Friday Night Fights” audience.
Unfortunately for Gardner, he got something he didn’t want -- a left rib injury in the middle of the third round that hindered him in the fourth round and saw him unable to answer the bell for the fifth of his six-round super middleweight bout against Elvin Ayala of New Haven, Conn.

The pay, some estimate, works out to about two dollars or less an hour. The days are often long, coming after a hard day at work. Family parties are missed, vacations are delayed and dinners often are eaten at odd hours of the night, if at all.
What is it that keeps high school coaches coming back each year? What draws them back to the fields, courts or track ovals? For a few area coaches, those frequent seasons have added up to 25 years to more than four decades of lending their expertise in their respective sports.
