BRISTOL, R.I. —ICON.12, the first boxing demonstration at ICON Boxing Club since Oct. took place Saturday, April 18. The event was a platform for selected members to display their boxing abilities. No winner was crowned after a fight. It was a mutual respect between fighters, yet a competitive clash among warriors.

Competitors competed against each other in a one-on-one battle for three rounds. Each round consisted of two minutes with a 60-second break between rounds. Competitors went through each round of every match with the crowd cheering loudly.

“These guys always fight hard,” said Jesse Amarelo, owner and CEO of ICON Boxing Club. “It really is about going in there and having fun.”

Competitors included Cristian De La Cruz, Joshua Warburton, Alex Hopkins, Ethan DeViveiros, Carlos Mendoza, David Marshall Jr., Teagan Jones, Tori DiBenedetto, Aaron Steven Hughes, Greg Hughes and Kenneth James Amoriggi.

Warburton had two fights during the night. This was his fourth and fifth time going at it at the ICON Boxing Club demonstrations.

“It’s a lot of fun, it’s a great way to show off the gym,” he said. “The energy was fantastic, the crowd was cheering and I felt exhilarated all the way through.”

The main event was Kenneth Amoriggi, attorney, against Greg Hughes, director of sales at The Dannon Company.

Amoriggi has been attending ICON Boxing Club for eight years, before ICON even had a boxing ring.
ICON.13 Fistic Fireworks III is the next boxing extravaganza. It will be Saturday, June 27.

  1. that, allow me inform you elcxtay what did give good results. The writing is actually incredibly engaging and that is most likely the reason why I am taking an effort to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, although I can see the leaps in reasoning you come up with, I am not really convinced of elcxtay how you appear to unite the details which help to make your conclusion. For right now I will, no doubt yield to your issue but hope in the foreseeable future you actually connect the dots much better.
