Olympian Demetrius Andrade and ex-URI football player Vladine Biosse to be showcased Oct. 3


boxing_glovesPROVIDENCE, R.I. (Sept. 22, 2009) – U.S. Olympian Demetrius “The Cape Verdean Assassin” Andrade and former University of Rhode Island football player, Vladine Biosse, will be featured in separate bouts in a rare matinee pro boxing show, “Saturday Afternoon Special,” Oct. 3 at the Twin River Event Center in Lincoln, R.I.
“Saturday Afternoon Special” is presented by Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Entertainment and Sports Inc. (CES), in association with Twin River. Andrade’s (7-0, 6 KOs) fight will be a 6-rounder, in association with Banner Promotions and Star Boxing.
Andrade, fighting out of Providence, is a former World amateur champion and a U.S. Olympian from 2008. The multi-talented southpaw is coming off of a scintillating performance earlier this month at Twin River, displaying his full arsenal en route to a sixth-round stoppage of previously-unbeaten John Williams. Considered one of the top prospects in the world, Andrade will be fighting at home for the third time as a pro.
Providence super middleweight Biosse (3-0, 3 KOs), also a victor on the aforementioned Andrade card via a second-round TKO against Sam Norwood, was a 2-time Junior College All-America football player at Dean College. His adjustment from the gridiron to the ring is ahead of pace with three wins, all by impressive knockouts.
“We’ve lobbied a long time for a Saturday afternoon card after a lot of fans told us that they want to bring young children, but couldn’t because we only promoted shows at night,” promoter Jimmy Burchfield said. “We are very excited that Twin River has given us this date and time. It’s a great opportunity for a family event and others still have Saturday night to do other things like enjoying a few more hours gambling, dining or dancing at beautiful Twin River.
“Having Olympian Demetrius Andrade fighting at home again is a treat for his growing legion of fans that includes so many of his family and friends. Vlad Biosse is the real deal. He’s one of the top, young prospects in New England and very popular in the Cape Verdean community as well as among URI alumni. These two fighters alone guarantee an entertaining show but we also have some other good, promising boxers in action.”
Fighting on the undercard against opponents soon to be determined are Hartford junior middleweight David Bauza (1-0, 1 KO), Providence cruiserweight Jay Holland (3-0-1, 2 KOs), Providence light welterweight Jesus Caro (4-0, 4 KOs), and Peabody (MA) light welterweight Simeon Dunwell (9-1, 2 KOs). All boxers are subject to change.
Rollback ticket prices for “Saturday Afternoon Special” are $25.00, $35.00 $50.00, $100.00 ($15.00 redeemable free play at Twin River), and limited $150.00 Jimmy’s Platinum Club ($25.00 redeemable free play at Twin River), and are available to purchase by calling CES (401.724.2253/2254), going online at or, at Twin River’s Players Club booth at Twin River, or any TicketMaster location.
Contact CES (401.724.2253/2254/ or the Twin River Event Center (877.82.RIVER/ for more information. Doors open at 1 PM/ET, first bout at 2 PM/ET.
(Twin River has waived its 18+ rule for “Saturday Afternoon Special.” Anybody under the age of 18 must be accompanied at all times by an adult and they must enter through the West entrance.)
