WOONSOCKET â€” It takes a lot to get an easygoing person like Joe Gardner angry, but thatâ€™s exactly how the Woonsocket Boxing Club fighter felt on the afternoon of his first main event fight and EBA (Eastern Boxing Association) New England light heavyweight title defense on March 16.
Instead of heading to Classic Entertainment & Sports, Inc.â€™s â€śBoxing At The Royaleâ€ť show in Boston for his much-anticipated eight-round showdown with Lowell, Mass.â€™s â€śIrishâ€ť Joey McCreedy, Gardner found himself staying home because the show was abruptly postponed.
