Giuriceo will face Jose Abreu Saturday night outdoors at the Covelli Centre.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Campbell native Jake Giuriceo has fought 12 times here in The Valley.  “The Bull” will make his 13th appearance this Saturday night when he takes to ring on our live boxing show, “Championship Night” at 8PM on MyYTV.  Giuriceo (19-5, 5 knockouts) will face Joe Abreu (12-0, 7 knockouts).

The 31-year old is thrilled to return to the ring at the Covelli Centre here in his hometown.

“It’s always better to be at home, definitely. especially at a venue like the Covelli Centre, outdoors,” Giuriceo said. “I know the crowd is going to come out. I know the fans, the boxing fans in the area are gonna come out. And they’re always cheering for the home town guy, so that’s always a great feeling. and you definitely know when it gets going for the other guy. So hands down, I’d rather fight at home for sure, and I’m excited.”

“Championship Night” coverage begins at 8PM on MyYTV.
