John Gotti III (and his infamous name) are returning to the cage this November.
An aspiring welterweight mixed martial artist — who just so happens to be the grandson of New York mobster John Gotti — Gotti III competes for the third time as a professional when he fights Josh Zuckerman (0-3) at CES 53, Classic Entertainment and Sports officials announced Friday.
In two pro outings, Gotti has recorded a pair of impressive knockouts, including a 32-second blitzing of Eddie Haws in May. He competed as an amateur beginning in September 2014 before turning pro last October. His bout with Zuckerman will take place on the non-televised undercard.
CES 53 takes place at the Twin River Casino in Lincoln, R.I., on Nov. 2. In the main event, Tony Gravely (15-5) fights Dinis Paiva (11-7) for a vacant bantamweight title.
