The ten round NABF featherweight title fight between Remillard and Lora headlines an outstanding evening of world class professional boxing.

Said Koerner, “We wanted to make a statement with our first event in the New England area and this featherweight showdown speaks volumes for our commitment to the local boxing fans. Remillard and Lora are both undefeated, all action fighters which should provide fireworks from the opening bell.”

The win improved his record to 11-0-0 (5KO’s).
