FULTON & DAVIS TESTED IN BETHLEHEM

A pair of rising local boxers faced the sternest tests of their young careers Tuesday night at the Sands Event Center in Bethlehem, PA. Philly's Stephen Fulton won his welterweight scrap, while Wilmington middleweight Kyrone Davis suffered his first pro setback. Both fighters hit the floor on this rough and tumble evening of boxing, and both showed resilience and character on this night when their level of competition took a major step up.

Stephen Fulton was cursed with having to fill out the evening's walkout bout, after an entertaining but long night of fights. Seven exciting contests... (MORE)

SUPER HERO CUNNINGHAM TO APPEAR IN UPCOMING COMIC BOOK

For several years now, when he’s not putting on boxing gloves, Steve “USS” Cunningham, 28-7-1, 13 KOs, has been picking up pen and ink to work on an original comic book that features the two-time cruiserweight champion as a superhero.

“I’m a big comic book fan,” Cunningham said. “I was originally slated to go to art college, but that didn’t work out because I went into the Navy. But I kept drawing.”        (MORE)

   
 
         
       
                 
 

   

CUNNINGHAM STILL FIGHTING FOR RESPECT WITH TRY AT THIRD TITLE

Former two-time cruiserweight champion Steve “USS” Cunningham, 28-7-1, 13 KOs, has built a fine reputation as a world champ, heavyweight contender, and Philly fighter. Yet, full respect from the boxing community seems to elude him, even after all he’s accomplished.

SELBY DEFEATS HUNTER TO DEFEND TITLE

IBF featherweight champion Lee Selby, 23-1, 8 KOs, defended his title against West Philly’s Eric “Outlaw” Hunter, 21-4. 11 KOs, via 12-round unanimous decision, Saturday at the O2 Arena in London. Hunter floored Selby in round two, but the champion got up and went on to outwork the challenger over the remainder of the fight.

Throughout the bout, Hunter was repeatedly warned for low blows and referee Marcus McDonnell penalized him one point in round eight. The point itself didn’t really factor into the outcome, but the referee and his reprimands did have a major impact on Hunter.

The high-strung Philadelphian slowly became unglued by... (MORE)

A win by Cunningham in the 12-round title fight, would make the Philadelphian... (MORE)

   



 
                 
       

HUNTER FIGHTING SELBY
FOR TITLE AND REDEMPTION

Eric “Outlaw” Hunter has always been like a storm, steadily brewing and constantly threatening to let loose. At a glance you might not see it. He’s a good looking kid, cool with a folksy, high-pitched voice. He smiles often, but that’s just on the outside. Inside, Hunter has been in turmoil for more than ten years.

It all began when he lost his chance to go to the Olympics in 2004. After a contested decision, he was named an alternate for the Athens games, but if you ask Hunter it was the first robbery of his troubled career. So instead... (MORE)
