Thomas LaManna, the 32-year-old pride of Millville, New Jersey, is on the brink of etching a monumental comeback tale into the boxing lore. This guy’s journey is all about the grind, the unwavering spirit, and a tenacity that just won’t quit.

“Think boxing’s a walk in the park? Think again. It’s brutal, it’s lonely, and man, it can get bleak. Riding this roller coaster of highs and lows, and not throwing in the towel? That’s the wild part. But something inside me just refuses to hit the brakes.”

LaManna’s stumbles? They’ve been against some top-notch fighters – undefeated hotshots like Antoine Douglas and Dusty Hernandez-Harrison, tough customers like Jorge Cota, and ring kings like Brian Mendoza and Erislandy Lara.

I want my journey and my story to serve as hope and inspiration for aspiring up and coming boxers and just regular everyday people alike, showcasing the power of resilience and determination”.
