WOONSOCKET --- The national spotlight could be on Joe Gardner again.
The Woonsocket Boxing Club fighter and EBA (Eastern Boxing Association) New England light heavyweight champion will step into the ring for his first fight outside New England and on the undercard of Saturday night’s “Super Six World Boxing Classic” at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.
Gardner (7-2-1, 1 KO) will fight super middleweight prospect and 2008 U.S. Olympian Shawn Estrada (11-0, 10 KOs) in a six-round battle that highlights a seven-fight undercard and expects to be the swing bout on the night’s slate.
