Local boy Danny O’Connor — a native of Framingham, Mass. — took on Eddie Soto in a light welterweight bout on the mezzanine concourse beyond the south endzone after a New England Revolution game.
O’Connor dominated the fight throughout, and eventually dropped Soto with a technical knockout in the fourth round. The victory for the hometown hero perhaps took some of the sting off the Revolution’s earlier 1-0 loss to the Montreal Impact.
O’Connor, who stands 5-foot-9 and weighs in at 140 pounds, is managed by Ken Casey of the Dropkick Murphys.
