Gonsalves replaces injured Burris and faces Camacho Jr. Friday night in co-feature

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (Nov. 3rd, 2014) -- With its 2014 season finale less than a week away, CES Boxing has secured a dynamic co-feature for "Winner Take All," scheduled for Friday, Nov. 7th, 2014 at Twin River Casino.

Super middleweight Angel Camacho Jr. (12-0, 4 KOs) of Providence, R.I., will now face Hyannis, Mass., vet Paul Gonsalves (7-4-1, 3 KOs) in a six-round bout. Camacho Jr. was originally scheduled to face Tylon Burris of Hartford, but Burris withdrew this weekend due to a back injury.

This will be Camacho Jr.'s first fight since 2011 and just his second in the last six years while Gonsalves is fighting for the fifth time in 2014, among them an impressive majority decision loss to unbeaten Mike Lee in July on the undercard of ESPN2's Friday Night Fights telecast.

Friday's event features eight bouts, headlined by the 10-round main event between Providence's Shelito Vincent (12-0, 1 KO) and Jackie Trivilino (9-8-3, 1 KO) for the vacant Universal Boxing Federation (UBF) female super bantamweight title.

"Winner Take All" is an all-ages show. Tickets for the event are on sale now for $40, $100 and $126 (VIP) and can be purchased online at <a href="http://r20.rs6.net/t...xPHW_6PB7OgA==" rel="nofollow" shape="rect" target="_blank">www.cesboxing.com or www.twinriver.com, at the Twin River Box Office or by phone at 401-724-2253/2254. Doors open at 6 and the first bout begins at 7 p.m. All fights and fighters are subject to change.

Unbeaten Brockton, Mass., heavyweight Julian Pollard (4-0, 4 KOs) makes his Twin River debut in a special four-round attraction against Providence veteran Arthur Saribekian (23-5-1, 18 KOs) while Cranston, R.I., welterweight Nick DeLomba (5-0) will battle Miami's Lazar Stojadinovic (1-1-1) in a six-round bout.

"Winner Take All" also features New Bedford, Mass., prospects Ray Oliveira Jr. (1-0, 1 KO) and Scott Sullivan (1-0, 1 KO), who both won their pro debuts Sept. 12th. Sullivan faces unbeaten lightweight Oscar Bonilla (2-0-1) of New Haven, Conn., while Oliveira Jr. takes on 6-foot-3 super middleweight Mike Rodriguez (0-1) of Springfield, Mass.

Unbeaten Worcester, Mass., middleweight prospect Khiary Gray-Pitts (2-0, 1 KO) faces Greg Thomas (0-4) of Philadelphia. Warwick, R.I., super middleweight and Air Force vet Zack Christy (1-0), who also debuted in September, returns in a separate four-round bout.
