Tenny Joins Rivera Promotions
WORCESTER – Dave Tenny, a 30-year veteran of the sport of boxing with more than 30 world championship fights as a top cutman, has joined Rivera Promotions, the newest promotional team that hopes to ignite the world of boxing in New England.
“I’m excited that Dave Tenny has decided to join our team,” said José Antonio Rivera, three-time world boxing champion and president and CEO of Rivera Promotions. “Dave has the knowledge and love for the sport of boxing that will only help Rivera Promotions grow.”
Mr. Tenny was an amateur boxer before continuing professionally in the sport as a trainer, manager and top cutman for more than 30 years. He has worked the corner for several championship fights, including Mr. Rivera’s fights in which he won the WBA championship at the welterweight and junior middleweight levels.
Mr. Tenny will serve as a coordinator and consultant as Rivera Promotions begins to develop the top promotional team in the New England area. The team is planning its first event for the end of the year.
“Dave will bring experience in the sport of boxing that will serve as a true asset to Rivera Promotions and its team of fighters,” Mr. Rivera said.
Mr. Rivera, a veteran of the sport and active professional boxer, formed Rivera Promotions months ago with the goal of guiding the careers of local, committed boxers and rebuilding the sport of boxing in the New England area.
Rivera Promotions consists of John Zablocki, longtime referee who has left the Massachusetts Boxing Commission for this endeavor; former professional boxer and current trainer and matchmaker Sean Fitzgerald, and local businessman Raul Crockett, formerly of New York.
