CES Boxing weigh-in results; Kahn, Contreras prepped for main event showdown

PROVIDENCE, RI – Toka Kahn-Clary’s long-awaited homecoming is just 24 hours away as CES Boxing hosts its first show of the year in Rhode Island Thursday night at Twin River Casino Hotel.

Kahn (27-2, 18 KOs) faces Mexican challenger Dennis Contreras (21-10-1, 19 KOs) in the eight-round main event and Massachusetts rivals Ray Oliveira Jr. (8-3, 1 KO) of New Bedford and Derrick Whitley Jr. (6-1-1) of Holyoke square off in the six-round welterweight co-main event.
The show will go on amidst the recent coronavirus outbreak, said CES Boxing president Jimmy Burchfield Sr., as the promotion is expecting a capacity crowd in its first fight at the Event Center since November.

“This is going to be a tremendous event. What a lineup!” Burchfield said. “Every fighter will be tested, including our headliner, Toka Kahn Clary. There are regional rivalries up and down the roster. There’s nothing better than a Thursday night out to start your weekend. We’re looking forward to kicking off our 2020 Twin River Casino Fight Series in style.”

Limited tickets remain starting at $47 are still available online at CESBoxing.com and ShowClix.com, or by phone at 401.724-2253. Doors open at 6 p.m. ET with the first bout at 7.
