Bizzarro promotions continued Erie PA’s annual pre-thanksgiving boxing with a three bout card at the Bayfront Convention Center in Erie, Pennsylvania.

In the six round main, Alex Castellano (8-1-1) of Buffalo, NY and Andre Donovan (2-2) from Coshocton, OH battled to a three round no-contest after Castellano suffered a bad cut from an accidental head butt. The doctor stopped the fight before letting the fourth round begin.

Hometown favorite Anthony Bizzarro did not disappoint as he scored a third round TKO over Anthony Linenfelser of Chicago in a four round super lightweight contest. Bizzarro improved to 5-0 with his third stoppage while Linenfelser drops to 4-17-1.

In the opening four round bantamweight bout, Samir Alowbali of Buffalo stopped Michael Turner (0-2) in the second round making his pro debut a successful one.

  • Why only 3 bouts on the card? The late Mike Acri always had at least 5-6 on his Erie Classic shows.

    • Yes, I had many fighters on Mike’s Erie Classic shows. The reason why there were only three fights is it was a combination show with MMA bouts also.

  • The stats on a few of the boxers signify they shouldn’t have been in the ring in the first place..Fighting a neophyte to gain a win or fighting a fighter with won 4 and lost 17 does not do anything to promote the sport..Nnice try though.. Appearances mean a lot also

    • Harry, the orginal opponent for Anthony Bizzaro pulled out on short notice with a reputed illness. That’s the best they could do on very short notice.

      • Glad to be the Bizarro family picked up the torch after promoter Mike Acri’s sad passing. I miss Mike!
