Son of Sandman Jarel Pemberton added to "Fight Night In Framingham" card

PhilBoxing.com




Fighting Life charity event, March 20th at Sheraton Hotel

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (February 27, 2020) - The son of Sandman, Jarel "Sandman" Pemberton, returns to the ring for the first time in nearly two years on the "Fight Night In Framingham" card, presented by Shearns Boxing Promotions (SBP), March 20, at Sheraton Framingham Hotel in Framingham, Massachusetts.

"Fight Night In Framingham", the first pro boxing event ever in Framingham, is being held for the benefit of Fighting Life, an after-school youth boxing and academic empowerment program, available 100-percent free of charge, to students beginning in elementary school through high school education.

The 28-year-old super middleweight Pemberton (3-0, 1 KO), fighting out of Revere, MA, is the son of one of New England's all-time favorite boxers, Scott Pemberton (29-5-1, 24 KOs), the former NABF and IBU World super middleweight champion. Pemberton was a blood-and-guts, highly entertaining type fighter best remembered for a pair of Fight of the Year candidates versus Omar Sheika.

Scott named his son, Jarel, after Superman's father, but he never forced him into boxing. "Me boxing had a lot to do with him," Jarel said, "but he never pushed me into boxing. I did go to a lot of his fights when I was young.

"Dad saw a Superman movie and named me Jarel after Superman's father. I think it's a great name, it kind of shaped my life because I'm a real comic-book nerd today."

Jarel played football and basketball at Dartmouth (MA) High, where two of his teammates went on to play in the National Football League, Jordan Todman and close friend Arthur Lynch. Jarel joined the U.S. Marines and he did two tours in Afghanistan as a machine gunner. He didn't start boxing until after he was honorably discharged, turning pro at 27.

"I wish I started boxing when I was a kid," he added, "but I didn't box until after I got out of the military. People tell me I hit hard; I do have natural power."

Pemberton, who is on the permanent reserve list to become a Revere Firefighter, is ready to get back in the ring on a regular basis, especially after being out of the ring nearly two years.

"I'm back in boxing for the long run," he admitted. I'd like to fight a few times in the next few months. I'm getting in top shape for this fight and that's a lot better than getting beat up in training by (22-0, 14 KOs welterweight from Lynn, MA) Rashidi Ellis. I'm bigger than him but he's so fast."

Pemberton is matched against veteran Texas fighter Larry "Slomoshun" Smith (10-43-1, 7 KOs) in a 4-round bout.

Two unbeaten pro "graduates" of the Fighting Life Boxing Program, super featherweights Timmy Ramos (5-0-2, 5 KOs) and Nelson "Chino" Perez (2-0, 2 KOs), are fighting in the main event and co-feature, respectively.

Ramos, fighting out of Framingham, was a two-time New England Golden Gloves champion as an amateur. He is in the 6-round, main event against super Carlos Marrero, III (2-3-1), of Bridgeport, Connecticut.

Perez, who comes from nearby Marlboro, is another New England Golden Gloves champion. He faces an opponent to be determined in the 6-round co-featured event. Perez faces Indianapolis lightweight DeWayne Wisdom (7-52-2, 3 KOs).

Boston heavyweight Tracey Johnson (4-7-6), whose brother is past Olympian and reigning WBO super middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade, faces Larry "Hitman" Pryor (11-22-5, 5 KOs) in a 6-round bout.

A pair of quality MMA fighters, Albania-born super middleweight Kastriot "Slaughterhouse" Xhema, fighting out of Greenwich, CT, makes his pro boxing debut against Framingham favorite, Brazilian-born Saul "The Spider" Almeida (0-10-3, 20-11 in MMA) in a 4-rounder.

Also fighting on the undercard, all in 4-round bouts, is Southbridge, MA welterweight Wilfredo "El Sucaro" Pagan (6-1, 3 KOs) vs. Tyrone "Hands of Stone" Luckey (9-12-4, 7 KOs), Worcester, MA super featherweight Ranse Andino (1-1) vs. Henry Garcia (0-5-1), of New Bedford, MA, and pro-debuting Hartford, CT super flyweight Angel Gonzalez, Jr. vs. Steve Lopez (1-4) of Philadelphia. Gonzalez is a decorated amateur boxer who is a three-time New England Golden Gloves, two-time Ringside National and 2014 National PAL champion

All fights and fighters are subject to change.

Tickets prices are $75,.00 ringside (rows 1-3), $60.00 (seated), $45.00 standing room, and VIP tables (of 10) for $1000.00 and may be purchased HERE, at UpperKuts gym, or from any of the local fighters on the card.
