North Philly's Teon Kennedy ran his budding pro record to 13-0 (5 KO) with an 8-round unanimous decision over Reading's Lucian Gonzalez in the main event at Bally's on Saturday night (6/6). Kennedy went right at his foe beginning in round one and chose to trade shots all the way through the bout. The light-punching Gonzalez stayed with him, but was outclassed, especially in the last half of the fight. Kennedy probably won 6 of the 8 rounds. What looked to be a tough match going in, proved exactly that, as Patrick Majewski took the decision in his fight with Latif Mundy. Majewski floored Mundy early and punished him over the first several rounds. But Mundy roared back late in the fight to make it close. He bloodied Majewski and appeared to be closing the scoring gap before Majewski won the final round to close the show. The judges saw it comfortably for the winner of the entertaining scrap. John Poore proved that the end of his career is just around the corner. He looked rusty and lost in his six rounder against Jermell Barnes, but somehow came away with a points win. Garrett Wilson scored the only KO of the night - and it was a beauty - against Louis Robinson, who fell hard from a perfect right. Ardrick Butler rallied to take a 4-round win over Rashad Bogar; Osnel Charles beat Luquan Lewis in four; and Jose Guzman decisioned Eliud Torres in four.
