Danbury’s Bordoy set for 9th fight Friday
Danbury fighter Omar Bordoy is going to be in a peculiar place when he takes the ring for his ninth career Friday night in Worcester, Mass.
He’ll be coming off a loss for the first time in his career.
Bordoy will likely have extra fire when he laces up the gloves against Andy Aiello at Union Station, looking to improve to 8-1 as a professional fighter. He’s had five months to think about a six-round, split-decision loss to Romain Tomas in New Hampshire.
“It’s going to be a good comeback fight,” said Bordoy by phone Tuesday. “We worked on working active. I guess that was problem last fight; although we felt we won the entire fight the only part (Tomas) has was more active, so we focused on that.”
What softened the blow of the defeat is the belief Bordoy should have been awarded the bout, and performed well enough to remain perfect.
“It honestly didn’t feel like a loss because we watched the tape several times and people who didn’t know me,” Bordoy said. “It took me a few days for it to register that we lost but after that it was fine.”
There will be seven bouts on the card.
