LUNDY RETURNS HOME FOR KO

Hammerin’ Hank Lundy made good on his promise to score a knockout in his homecoming bout in the scheduled eight-round main event at the 2300 Arena Friday night. Lundy, on the road for the past seven-plus years, came back to South Philly to rout Daniel Evangelista of Mexico City. The brash lightweight stormed out at the opening bell and took control of the contest immediately.  

Hammerin’ Hank swept the first four rounds fairly easily. Lundy took a handful of shots, but spent most of the time on the offense. He scored numerous blows and bullied Evangelista around the ring. The Mexican stayed calm and looked for a chance to turn the fight with a single shot. That opportunity... (MORE)

DAVIS STOPS ROSARIO

In the main event at South Philly’s 2300 Arena, DC junior lightweight Joshua Davis, 11-1, 5 KOs, scored a seventh round TKO over Pennsauken, NJ's Carlos Rosario, 7-2, 4 KOs. Rosario started fast, but before long Davis took control with an effective jab. Solid and steady power punches by Davis soon followed, and Rosario began to fade in the fight.

Davis dropped Rosario in round two and then again in the sixth. Rosario survived both trips to the canvas, but the fight appeared to be almost over after the second knockdown. In the seventh round, it was all Davis, who picked up right where he had left off in the previous round. (MORE)

   

 

 
                 
       

BROOKER
BEATS ROJAS

Local super middleweight Christopher Brooker, Philadelphia, bounced back from two consecutive losses Friday night with an eight round unanimous decision over Oscar Rojas, of Monterrey, Mexico, at the Sugar House Casino. The main event bout began with Rojas taking a quick lead, while Brooker mostly backed up and boxed. This passive start was a nerve-wracking red flag for Brooker fans who knew Chris as an aggressive stalker until his previous fight when the puncher turned boxer and let a winnable fight slip by in Atlantic City.

At the pre-fight press conference three days before, Brooker promised that the “old” Ice Cold Brooker would be back against Rojas... (MORE)

   



 
                 
       

FARMER WINS ONE-HANDED

His right hand wasn't tied behind his back, but Philly junior lightweight Tevin Farmer won a fight using little more than his left, on Saturday night at the Liacouras Center on the Temple University campus in North Philly. Farmer fought through an apparent arm injury for nearly ten full rounds in the main event, but still managed to keep his winning streak, now eighteen strait, going strong. Farmer beat rugged and aggressive Mexican Arturo Santos by unanimous decision, but it wasn't an easy night for the flashy Philly southpaw.

Farmer took the first two rounds, and looked like his speedy, flamboyant self. However, sometime late in the second, Tevin began showing signs of a clipped right wing. In round three, Farmer grimaced, turned orthodox... (MORE)
