Peter Manfredo Jr. returning to ring on March 14
Super middleweight Peter Manfredo, Jr. returns to the ring March 14, headlining “Rumble at the River,” against Shane Benfield in the main event at the Twin River Events Center in Lincoln.
Manfredo (28-5, 13 KOs), star of The Contender I television reality series, fights Benfield (17-1, 9 KOs) in the 10-round main event. Coming off of a 10-round loss by decision to former world champion Jeff Lacy on the Floyd Mayweather-Ricky Hatton pay-per-view card, Manfredo hopes to rebound against Benfield, who dropped a 12-round decision in his last fight to DeAndrey Abron for the NABO belt that Manfredo once held.
IWBF lightweight champion Jaime Clampitt (18-4-1, 7 KOs), fighting out of Cranston, defends her crown against battle-tested Belinda Larcuente (23-20-3, 9 KOs), the GBU junior welterweight title-holder from New York City, in the 10-round co-feature.
Clampitt is a 3-time world champion, while 20 of Larcuente’s last 21 bouts, dating back nearly five years, have been against world champions.
