Peter Manfredo Jr. Targets Ring Return on November 29

Middleweight contender Peter Manfredo Jr. (37-7, 20KOs) is planning to return to the ring on November 29th at the Twin River Event Center in Lincoln, Rhode Island. Manfredo announced his retirement last November in Texas, after suffering an HBO televised fifth round TKO defeat to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Prior to that loss, Manfredo had won nine out of ten bouts that go back to 2008.

Solid guy, wish him nothing but the best. Not a world class superstar, but boxing has room for all levels of fighters, otherwise where would we be?
