Veteran Martinez replaces Ferrante; tangles against Wilson

Richard Quiñones (Journeymen Boxing) Veteran Pedro Martinez will step in to the ring Friday night against Garrett Wilson in a slated eight-round heavyweight affair at the PA Sheet Metal Workers Hall.

Wilson (15-9-1, 9ko’s) was originally slated to take on Anthony “Boom Boom” Ferrante, but Ferrante pulled out of the card.

The 33-year-old Wilson has won two straight — both via knockouts and has pulled off several upsets during his career, including a 12th round KO over Andres Taylor back in 2012.

Martinez (7-8, 3ko’s) has dropped six of eight overall, but is durable and will take fights on short notice.
