Here are some of the results !!
Tarek Rached vs David Cummings : Rached By TKO 1 st
Rached wins by tko in round 1 on 3 knock down rule. I thought as did both of the fighters that
1 of the knockdowns was questionable and the 1 st one was A sweep that should not have been called but the ref called 3 knockdows
causing the fight to be stopped in rd 1.
Both fighters came to fight and David did not seem hurt after the fight was stopped so I would really like
to see A rematch with these 2 fighters.
Bobby Campbel VS George Bustimonte Campbel wins majority decission
This was A good clean 7 rd pro fight with George showing his experience by controlliong the action in most of the
rounds and Bobby landing some good counters in the later rounds. Neither fighter was hurt and the judges gave Bobby the nod
in the end. On A side note USKBA world champion Billy Maysonnette was ringside for this fight and said that he would like
to fight the winner on our next event.
Terrance oconner Vs Kadir kadri :
This was an action packed Mauy Thai fight from start to finish with Terrance Oconner winning by decission.
Kyle Murray VS Ricardo Lopez
Kyle Murray came out on fire in this 4 rd amateur fight as he never has before and winning by 1 st rd
KO with A strong left hook.
Lennox Chance vs Kieth Nesbit : Lennox Chance by 2 rd KO
This was A Fight that was thrown together at the last imnute as the opponent for lennox Chance did not show up.Lennox
Chance is an amateur world champion and it is very hard to find a last minute replacement for him so Kieth said he would
do an exhibition with him even though he was not in fight shape. They agreed to fight A pro-am exhibition fight
and it was an awesome match with both fighters showing great technique as well as heart. They both landed some strong punches
and kicks and Lennox Chance won by 2rd rd Ko off of A right hand.
Jason Kurdzeil VS Alexander Gomez : Jason kurzeil by decission
was A 3 rd amateur fight and A rematch. Jen won the 1 st fight and we knew that this was going to be A great rematch. Dorian
started out very strong and winning the first round hands down ,in round 2 Dorian started strong but started to show some
signs of getting tired. In the second part of round 2 Jen landed some very good high kicks which won this round for her.In
round 3 Jen continued to gain control and got the decission in this very tough match.. I look foward to seeing A 3rd match
between these 2 strong women again. This fight was very close and both fighters deserve alot of credit for letting it all
go in the ring and giving the crowd A great show.
Mike Ryan VS Nathan Stokes : Mike Ryan BY 2 rd KO
Mike Ryan has been showing his srtength in the heavyweight full contact divission and is on a mission to fight
Dan Lucas for there 3rd match for his World title. Mike showed his experiance and used some strong boxing skills to
control his opponent and mixing it with very strong kicks and winning with A spinning kick KO. I would make the rematch on
my event for the title between Dan Lucas and Mike Ryan but we can not hold USKBA title fights in Ny at this time. I hope to
see that fight on another event this year.
