Lowell, MA (January 20, 2023) – On January 28, Reyes Boxing returns to the Lowell Auditorium in Lowell, MA for the “Down and Dirty 5” fight card.

In the main event of the evening, Donnie Palmer challenges Steve Vukosa in a ten round heavyweight contest.

A towering inferno at 6’10, Palmer is 12-2-1 with 10 knockouts. Since suffering a setback against top 10 heavyweight Joe Joyce, Palmer’s won three straight fights, two of which came via knockout.

Born in Boston and residing in Dorchester, MA, Palmer’s also well known outside of the ring. An Army Veteran and special education teacher, Palmer ran for congress last year in Massachusetts’ 7th district against incumbent Ayanna Pressley.

Known as “The Gentle Giant,” Vukosa’s excellent professional ledger is 13-1-1 with 5 KO’s. The Quincy, MA native made waves in the boxing world by defeating former US Olympian Jason Estrada in 2014. He went onto fight in ESPN’s Boxcino Tournament but lost against Donovan Dennis. In 2019, Vukosa pulled off yet another upset when he bested 18-2 Joe Cusumano by unanimous decision.

“Donnie and Steve have been part of the New England boxing scene for more than a decade,” said Mike Reyes of Reyes Boxing Promotions. “They’re two big heavyweights, with Donnie being 6’10 and Steve at 6’5, that have excellent records. Both fighters recognize a win on January 28 could open the door for a matchup against a top heavyweight.”

Harry “The Hitman” Gigliotti, 8-4 (3 KO’s), of Haverhill, MA faces Salem, MA’s Brandon Sandoval, 2-3 (1 KO). The six round junior welterweight contest is for the ABF title.

Undefeated junior lightweight and Lowell’s very own Gabriel Morales puts his 5-0 record on the line against 18 fight veteran Ryan Venable of Virginia.

Methuen, MA’s Luke Iannuccilli, 4-0 (1 KO), squares off with heavy-handed Argentine Sergio Castellano, 11-12 (7 KO’s) over six rounds in the junior middleweight division.

Multi-time amateur champion Jaydell Pazmino of Sandown, NH makes his pro debut in a four round junior lightweight contest against Virginia’s Stacey Anderson.

Contenders Steve Geffrard, Willian Silva and Hegley Mosqueda are scheduled to appear in separate bouts. Philadelphia native Tahmir Smalls and local favorites Alicia Pike, Devon Williams and Salvatore Pugliares will all appear in separate bouts.
