ROBINSON
HALTS AMUZU

Rising Upper Darby super middleweight Brandon Robinson scored a rousing TKO over Ernest Amuzu in the main event Friday night at the 2300 Arena in South Philly. The end came in round three of the scheduled eight-rounder. It was a sloppy brawl, filled with hard punches and aggressive action. Robinson mounted an early body attack which drew the fight into close quarters right off the bat. Amuzu, a heavily muscled Ghanaian fighting out of Prichard, AL, was willing to battle Robinson, but fell short when it came to trading blows.

Robinson appeared more comfortable in the trenches, and won the first two rounds with more activity and a more effective assault. Amuzu... (MORE)

   

 
                 
 

   

PORTER EDGES GARCIA IN BROOKLYN

Shawn Porter scored a 12-round unanimous decision over Danny Garcia Saturday night in Brooklyn to capture the vacant WBC welterweight title in the close and entertaining main event at the Barclays Center.  Porter used a greater work rate, throwing nearly 300 more punches, to nip Garcia at the wire of a close fight. Garcia’s punches were cleaner, more accurate, and harder than Porter’s, but it was not enough to win the fight. 

Porter began the fight in unfamiliar fashion, boxing from the outside instead of his usual crowding and swarming style.  The switch-up gave... (MORE)

   

 
                 
 

   

PHILLY PREMIERE
OF ALI FILM
ON WEDNESDAY

The short film documentary – “Muhammad Ali: Me Whee” makes its Philadelphia premiere on Wednesday, September 12, at the Veteran Boxers Association Clubhouse (VBA-Ring 1).  The 30-minute movie, produced and directed by Arny Stone, features vintage footage of the great boxing champion during his second reign as heavyweight champion in the mid-1970s, and beautifully captures Ali’s persona, his love for kids, and the entertaining ride he took all of us on when he was at the peak of his athletic skills and personal charms.  

Shot at Ali’s Deer Lake training camp, Las Vegas, and... (MORE)

   
 
         
       
                 
 

   

GARCIA SEEKS TO REGAIN MISSING
PIECE AGAINST PORTER

Sixteen months ago, the morning after he lost to Keith Thurman, Danny “Swift” Garcia woke up a non-champion for the first time in five years. It was a feeling he thought he might never experience, and it was a situation he was anxious to correct.

However, his hopes of an immediate rematch with Thurman were dashed when Keith – and his pair of 147-pound titles - went on the DL. Garcia took some time off – too much some would say – and rebounded nearly one year later with a TKO of Brandon Rios.

It was a nice win – and a highlight reel KO – but... (MORE)

   
 
         
       
                 
 




 

   

GARCIA READY FOR PORTER SHOWDOWN

Philly’s Danny “Swift” Garcia, 34-1, 20 KOs, held an open workout for the media on Wednesday, in advance of his anticipated clash with Shawn Porter, 28-2-1, 17 KOs, for the vacant WBC welterweight title, scheduled for September 8th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. 

Garcia looked fit and ready for the fight, and the atmosphere at the DSG Boxing Gym felt looser than it has been in many of his previous bouts.  The overall feeling was that Danny was on the brink of regaining a world title, something that has been lacking from his life the past 17 months. 

Garcia’s loss to Keith Thurman in March 2017 left him... (MORE)

Super middleweight Jesse Hart also scored an impressive stoppage in his fight with Mike Gavronski.   

With the IBF-International and NABO regional title belts on the line, heavyweight Alexander Dimitrenko came out strong against Bryant Jennings in their scheduled 12-rounder.  Fans of the typically slow-starting Jennings... (MORE)

WEBSTER
SNORES;
SCORES TKO

Hard Hitting Promotions capped off Philly’s busy, two-night, weekend boxing schedule with an eight-bout card at the 2300 Arena. After a delay of more than one hour, while the full house waited for the EMS crew to arrive, the show finally got started about 8:20 PM.   

In the main event, Glassboro, NJ super middleweight Derrick Webster, 27-1, 14 KOs, trotted out his usual somnambulistic style for the overheated packed house, and for seven rounds, produced not a single moment that made the crowd thankful to have come to see him fight. Activity in the bout was low and excitement was nil. As usual, Webster possessed all the advantages in the bout, but was... (MORE)
