Congratulations to the Norman “Stony” Stone, Mayor Joe Curtatone, the city of Somerville and everyone involved with the Somerville Boxing Club who co-hosted and made it possible for the good people of Somerville and the world to see the finest fighters at work earlier this month at Club Royale in Boston.
The event gave you three action packed bouts and a chance for Somerville Boxing Fans to come out and support their local fighters!
The club is a fantastic opportunity to get kids involved and keep them off the streets!

The Middlesex Sheriff’s Office and Rolling Thunder Massachusetts Chapter 1 have dedicated a POW/MIA Chair in Billerica to bring awareness to the over 91,000 U.S. Service Members unaccounted for since World War One.
The chair – which will remain unoccupied – was unveiled in a ceremony held in Billerica’s Vietnam Veterans Park, Monday, October 7. The park is directly across the street from the Middlesex House of Correction, where the chair will be placed in the lobby for visitors and staff to see.
“While we hope and pray the families of all missing service members are someday reunited with their loved ones, this chair will serve as a poignant and constant reminder that families across the county and the country continue to wait for their loved ones to return home,” said Sheriff Peter J. Koutoujian.
Rolling Thunder hopes to have chairs placed in every community across the Commonwealth. The chair dedicated Monday by the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office is the first to be dedicated by a law enforcement agency in Massachusetts, according to Rolling Thunder President Joe D’Entremont. Chairs have previously been dedicated in communities such as Melrose and Stoneham, as well as in sports facilities including Fenway Park, the TD Garden and Gillette Stadium.
Monday’s dedication was attended by members of the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office Veterans Service Office, Rolling Thunder, and the Town of Billerica.
