Biosse decisions King to remain unbeaten

LINCOLN, Rhode Island (Sept. 3, 2010) –  Former University of Rhode Island football player Vladine “Mr. Providence” Biosse overcame the first knockdown of his career to keep his undefeated record intact in tonight’s main event on the “Labor Daze” card, presented by Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Entertainment and Sports, Inc. (CES), at Twin River Event Center in Lincoln, Rhode Island.

In a battle of free-swinging southpaws, Ibaheim “The Almighty” King (7-5) dropped Biosse (8-0) in the fourth round, but Vladine came back to floor a game King twice in the sixth en route to a win by a unanimous 8-round decision.

“I threw a punch – a wild hook – and he checked me with a right,” Biosse said about his first knockdown. “Give it all to him. He’s a veteran, an Olympic qualifier, who has fought a lot of top guys. He came to fight; well prepared and in shape. The knockdown was a blessing. I learned that I need to be patient from that knockdown. I hurt him and then chased, going for the knockdown, and he caught me off balance. I learned that if the knockdown comes, great, but a victory is what really counts.”
