Medford’s Lewis Corapi and Providence’s Keenan Raymond have fireworks in mind for their bout at #CES35, April 16 in Beverly at the legendary North Shore Music Theatre.
The two high-energy fighters agree scorecards won’t be necessary when the cage door locks.
“I don’t know a whole lot about my opponent except he’s got a judo background so I’m looking for the knockout,” laughed Corapi, who’s looking for his fifth KO. “Striking is my bread and butter. I enjoy jiu-jitsu, but I come from a Muay Thai academy and, not to sound too macho, but I enjoy punching people in the face.”
Raymond is a dangerous grappler, but he too is looking forward to throwing some leather in Beverly on April 16.
“I’m going to be in shape and ready to push the pace, and I’m definitely looking to showcase my improved stand-up,” Ramond said. “Fans can expect a lot of action, high intensity — and I’m going for a finish.”
In the main event of CES MMA 35 on April 16 in Beverly, Gloucester’s Pedro Gonzelez and Dorchester’s Andres Jeudi go to war. The event will also feature Peabody’s Rico DiSciullo, Quincy’s Mike Rodriguez, East Freetown’s Devin Carrier and Buck Pineau of Ashland, as well as a stacked amateur portion of the card, where fighters will compete with a CES MMA professional contract on the line.
