Greg “The Villain” Vendetti (23-4-1, 12 KOs) returns to the ring on Saturday, July 30th, 2022. He will take on the battle tested Courtney “King-Penn” Pennington (15-5-3, 7 KOs).
This 10 round Super Welterweight special attraction will take place at Mosley’s on The Charles in Dedham, MA. The event is promoted by Vertex Promotions in association with Murphy’s Boxing.
The fan favorite Vendetti, will be fighting in his home state for the first time in over three years. During that stretch, he challenged Erislandy Lara for the WBA and IBO World Championships.
Vendetti lost by decision but gained valuable experience fighting against the future Hall-of-Famer. Vendetti wants to get back on the big stage, challenging for a world title on national TV. The next step on his voyage will be on July 30th.
Most boxers in Vendetti’s position would fight against easy competition while they wait to get another shot against one of the top people in their division.
Vendetti chose not to go that route and will be squaring off against Courtney Pennington. Vendetti stated, “I want my fans to see a real fight and that is what they will get.” Pennington has a very creditable resume and calls himself, “The upset king, and the road warrior”.
He holds victories over Boyd Melson (15-1-1), Khiary Gray (14-1), Delvin Rodriguez (29-8-4), and Steven Martinez (18-3).
Waymaker Management’s Founder/President, Artie DePinho stated, “Greg is always looking to fight the best.
He understands what Courtney Pennington brings to the table and he’s prepared to take care of business. This is an opportunity for Greg’s fans to see him fight locally before he goes back on the world stage.”
