Three generations of the Maine-native Gamache family will be in one corner on October 27 as unbeaten light middleweight Stevie Gamache (3-0, 1 KO) fights on the "Rising Olympian Star In The Big Apple" pay-per-view event, showcasing unbeaten 2008 U.S. Olympian Sadam "World Kid" Ali (15-0, 9 KOs), live from Aviator Sports Complex in Brooklyn, New York. The 29-year-old Gamache will have his grandfather, Joe Sr., as his chief second and his father, two-time World lightweight champion Joey Gamache (55-4, 38 KOs) as an assistant trainer and cut-man. "It was a lot easier fighting than watching my son fight," Joey said. "My father got Stevie into boxing. I was traveling all of the time. I took Stevie with me for my fights when I could, trips to France and California, and he got familiar with the sport that way. I see a lot of me in him; the trademark body punching, plus he has a good jab and knows how to box. We don't have identical styles, he moves well." Stevie, who fights Jose Angel
PLAYERS: Sadam Ali
