WOONSOCKET --- Joe Gardner is going back to the future.
No, heâ€™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 â€™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 7Â˝-year sabbatical from the sport.
LINCOLN â€” Thereâ€™s no room for confusion or interpretation when youâ€™re that sure about something. Make no mistake: Nick Zammarelliâ€™s mind is already made up regarding where he wants to play college baseball.
A junior at Lincoln High, Zammarelli recently announced his intention to attend Division I Elon University, located in North Carolina. To issue a verbal that signifies the acceptance of an athletic scholarship package long before Zammarelli is even eligible to sign a national letter of intent speaks volumes of just how comfortable the player is with the school and vice versa.
