Thomas LaManna will begin his career with a nice success by KO. 16 other
wins and 8 more KO’s will follow. The boxer born in Belleville, New Jersey,
will remain undefeated for 4 years and his first loss to fellow countryman
Antoine Douglas in March 2015, in a WBA middleweight Fedelatin belt shot.
An accident more than a stop. Thomas LaManna goes on a new set of five wins
before being offered another title shot, this time in the welterweight division. In
September 2016, he faces undefeated Dusty Hernandez Harrison for the USBA
belt win. But the latter will remain it by dominating Thomas by unanimous
In August 2017, at the age of 25, he announced his retirement and that the final
fight of his career will be against George Sosa for the WBC FECARBOX and
WBC Silver Latino championship titles. Fight and belts that he wins at the
unanimous decision. Is it these belts or his passion for boxing, Thomas
LaManna regains his zest for the ring and decides to defend his titles, which he
did twice in 2018.
In parallel, he works as a manager through Rising Star Promotions. Thomas
LaManna still keeps fighting and seeking an international title. After 4 more
wins and 2 losses, the first ones since 2016, he got his chance for the vacant
WBA Fedecentro in January 2021. Once more, he wins a regional title against
Juan Gonzalez by TKO. In May 2021, Thomas LaManna has finally the
opportunity to get a World belt. But he is surprised in the 1 st round by Lara. No
doubt that the US Irish will have another opportunity.
