DAVIS STOPS ROSARIO

In the main event at South Philly’s 2300 Arena, DC junior lightweight Joshua Davis, 11-1, 5 KOs, scored a seventh round TKO over Pennsauken, NJ's Carlos Rosario, 7-2, 4 KOs. Rosario started fast, but before long Davis took control with an effective jab. Solid and steady power punches by Davis soon followed, and Rosario began to fade in the fight.

Davis dropped Rosario in round two and then again in the sixth. Rosario survived both trips to the canvas, but the fight appeared to be almost over after the second knockdown. In the seventh round, it was all Davis, who picked up right where he had left off in the previous round. (MORE)

   

 
                 
 

   

BROOKER
BEATS ROJAS

Local super middleweight Christopher Brooker, Philadelphia, bounced back from two consecutive losses Friday night with an eight round unanimous decision over Oscar Rojas, of Monterrey, Mexico, at the Sugar House Casino. The main event bout began with Rojas taking a quick lead, while Brooker mostly backed up and boxed. This passive start was a nerve-wracking red flag for Brooker fans who knew Chris as an aggressive stalker until his previous fight when the puncher turned boxer and let a winnable fight slip by in Atlantic City.

At the pre-fight press conference three days before, Brooker promised that the “old” Ice Cold Brooker would be back against Rojas... (MORE)

   

 
                 
 

   

FARMER WINS ONE-HANDED

His right hand wasn't tied behind his back, but Philly junior lightweight Tevin Farmer won a fight using little more than his left, on Saturday night at the Liacouras Center on the Temple University campus in North Philly. Farmer fought through an apparent arm injury for nearly ten full rounds in the main event, but still managed to keep his winning streak, now eighteen strait, going strong. Farmer beat rugged and aggressive Mexican Arturo Santos by unanimous decision, but it wasn't an easy night for the flashy Philly southpaw.

Farmer took the first two rounds, and looked like his speedy, flamboyant self. However, sometime late in the second, Tevin began showing signs of a clipped right wing. In round three, Farmer grimaced, turned orthodox... (MORE)

   
 
         
       
                 
 

   

LOMACHENKO STOPS SOSA

Jason Sosa's dream streak at the top of the junior lightweight division ended Saturday night at the new MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, MD. After establishing himself as a real factor at 130 pounds after three performances

In the main event at the MGM National Harbor, WBO junior lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko, 8-1, 6 KOs, stopped Camden, NJ's Jason Sosa, 20-2-4, 15 KOs, at the end of round nine to defend his world title. For Sosa, it was the end of a dream streak of three brilliant performances that began in December 2015 and stretched for almost sixteen months.

Sosa’s run included three fights, all upsets... (MORE)

   
 
         
       
                 
 




 

   

OMAR DOUGLAS ROBBED!
by Ken Hissner

Tuesday night at the Sands Casino in Bethlehem, PA, Wilmington's Omar "Super O" Douglas was robbed by the "Three Blind Mice” (aka official judges) in his nationally televised ten-round main event against Edner Cherry. The fight topped a nine-bout Kings Promotions, that featured three fights televised live by Fox Sports 1. 

Edner "Cherry Bomb" Cherry, a Bahaman boxer now fighting out of Wauchula, FL, received an early Christmas present, when he was awarded a questionable unanimous decision. The official scores were 96-94 (by Steve Weisfeld and Ron McNair), and an even more outlandish 98-92... (MORE)

   

 

 
                 
       

SOSA NAMED
"2016 PHILLY FIGHTER OF
THE YEAR"
AS LOMACHENKO FIGHT LOOMS

With the biggest bout of his career upcoming on Saturday night at the new MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, MD, Jason Sosa, Camden, NJ, was named the “Philly Fighter of the Year” for 2016. The honor comes after a pair of stellar 2016 performances. Last June, Sosa captured the WBA junior lightweight championship in an upset of Javier Fortuna in China. He also successfully defended his title in Monte Carlo against favored Brit Stephen Smith in a November title bout. This fine stretch for Sosa was preceded by a disputed draw against then-undefeated... (MORE)

   



 
                 
       

ENNIS EARNS RUGGED WIN IN SOUTH PHILLY

The education of rising ring star Jaron Ennis continued Friday night at the 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia. Ennis secured his tenth consecutive victory with a rough and tumble points win over James Winchester, 20-13, 8 KOs. Ennis, 19, was in charge all night, but had to deal with Winchester’s rough-housing tactics intended to ruffle the feathers of the young welterweight. However, Ennis, now 10-0, 8 KOs, managed to keep his head, fight smart, and gather the unanimous decision win over six rounds.  

A switch-hitting Ennis cruised to an early lead in the first round, hitting Winchester from both sides with relative ease.  (MORE)

   



 
                 
 
 
   

ROBINSON WINS AT FILLMORE

Welterweight southpaw Ray Robinson won his scheduled 8-round main event bout with Brazilian Claudinei Lacerda at The Fillmore Philadelphia Friday night, keeping alive his quest to land a big fight after more than ten years as a pro. The six-bout card, staged by Hard Hitting Promotions, was the first-ever boxing event at the venue.  

Robinson, 23-2, 12 KOs, wore down his opponent while controlling every moment of the fight. Eventually in round seven, with Lacerda taking punches and no longer competitive, the bout was stopped.

The Philadelphian’s victory began to unfold... (MORE)
