Inside Boxing: Bringing boxing back to Greater New Bedford, Mass.

When Silva, Santiago and Oliveira first put their heads together on running an amateur show, they were thinking maybe 12 fights, which is about the norm for amateur shows. They are now looking at 21 bouts, with fighters coming in from Holyoke, Worcester, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and as far away as Brooklyn, N.Y.
