Godsmack singer Sully Erna will serve as a professionally licensed cornerman on Friday, August 16th, when two-time national PAL amateur champion David Tubbs makes his professional debut against Ranieri Souza in a four-round light heavyweight fight at Nashua Community College in Nashua, New Hampshire.

Erna, who regularly boxes as part of his fitness routines while at home and on the road, will be in Tubbs's corner along with trainer Joseph "Hoss" Janik. Erna said, "Anyone who knows me, knows what a passion I have for boxing . . . I'm extremely honored to have been asked to work this corner with Hoss. He's the real deal, and so is David Tubbs. Wait 'til you see him fight."

The evening of professional boxing sponsored by Boston Boxing Promotions -- including eight matches and a raffle -- will benefit the Scars Foundation, a charity established by Erna to raise awareness of mental health issues and provide resources and tools to educate and empower people to deal with addiction, abuse, depression and more.

Godsmack will appear at the Bethlehem Musikfest in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania this Friday (August 9th). The band next heads out on a fall tour with Halestorm supporting.
