by J.R. Jowett

Bob Arum and Top Rank came to Philadelphia on Friday night (10/18) for an IBF/WBC light heavyweight “Unification” bout at the Liacouras Center of Temple U. They teamed with the great J Russell Peltz (Peltz Boxing) for local support. A crowd of 3,283 was well entertained by record builders that produced no upsets on the undercard but saw the prospects get some valuable experience. Then the two top bouts electrified fans with solid competitive battles. Bruce Trampler and Brad Muhammad Goodman (and Peltz?) did the matchmaking for TR. Leroy Samuels, a long-time veteran of Philly and AC boxing before TR moved to LV, was publicist. Lupe Contreras was ring announcer for the undercard while Jimmy Lennon Jr. provided...

by J. R . Jowett

Diane Fisher (Dee Lee Prom’ns) with matchmaker Nick Tiberi kept Delaware boxing going with a show on Saturday night, 10/5, at their usual location, the Hockessin PAL. About 500 fans came out for a fine card, but with some new twists. The show was highlighted not by a particular fighter but the return of the Pennsylvania Commission to run the card. Delaware has none of its own, so various other states have exercised oversight of the local shows. PA Commissioner Greg Sirb held sway over a long and successful program at Dover Downs, only to be replaced. First Virginia and recently Alabama were the supervising commissions. Now Pennsylvania is back, which is good news, as they always do a fine job. Sirb had a kung fu card in Pennsylvania simultaneously... (MORE)
