LARA KAYOS LAMANNA IN FIRST

Erislandy Lara made quick work of Millville's Thomas "Cornflake" LaManna Saturday night in Carson, CA. The scheduled 12-round bout for the vacant WBA middleweight title was an early preliminary fight in support of the PPV heavyweight clash between Andy Ruiz and Chris Arreola. Southpaw Lara stepped right out in round one and began tagging LaManna with straight left hands. LaManna took the first few shots flush on the face, and the third punch started a trickle of blood to flow from LaManna's nose. A moment later, Lara tossed another left, but this one, slightly arched, slammed against... (MORE)

PRICE KAYOS JOAQUINO - AGAIN

In the scheduled eight-round main event, Saturday night at the 2300 Arena, Dylan Price, Sicklerville, NJ, repeated his previous knockout victory over Elias Joaquino, but did it much more quickly the second time around. The solid gold prospect was impressive in breaking down his opponent and needed less than two rounds to score a TKO. When they first met in November of 2019, Price finished Joaquino in the sixth.

Price came out swinging in the rematch. Price was smooth and slick and extremely busy, landing from every angle, but particularly effective with uppercuts and body blows. Price switched from orthodox to southpaw... (MORE)

   
 
         
       
                 
 

   

CUNNINGHAM WINS RETURN BOUT

Former cruiserweight champion Steve "USS" Cunningham returned to the ring Saturday night after nearly four years away, and scored a six-round unanimous decision victory over former MMA fighter Frank Mir. It was Mir's debut as a boxer. The fight was part of a Pay-Per-View card staged by Triller Fight Club and headlined by YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul.

Cunningham used his superior boxing skills to control the bout. His jab and sharp right-hand power shots, and occasional work to the body kept Mir at bay, and never allowed the bulky tough guy to build the slightest bit of momentum.  (MORE)

   
 
         
       
                 
 




 

   

ENNIS KAYOS LIPINETS

Philly's hottest rising contender Jaron "Boots" Ennis took another step toward a world welterweight title shot when he scored an impressive sixth-round TKO over experienced Sergey Lipinets, Saturday night at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT. The scheduled 12-rounder was nationally televised live by Showtime.

Lipinets, a former IBF junior welterweight champion, was Ennis' most seasoned opponent thus far and figured to be Jaron's toughest test to date. However, you'd never know this while watching the fight. Ennis dominated the entire bout, displaying his speed, power, and killer instinct from the opening bell.  (MORE)

DAWEJKO RETURNS
WITH KO

On Saturday night at the 2300 Arena, Philly heavyweight Joey Dawejko returned to the ring after more than one year off, and scored a two-knockdown, first-round TKO over Joe Jones of Lynchburg, VA. The fight was the scheduled eight-round main event of an eight-bout card staged by RDR Promotions. The fighters started quickly. Both landed shots before a clash of heads temporarily halted the action. Moments later, Jones slipped to the canvas, which paused the fight again. However, once the action resumed, the bout shifted into another gear.

Dawejko landed a good right to the head and... (MORE)

   





 
                 
 
 
   

LEE KAYOS TEAH
ORTIZ WINS

California junior welterweight Brandun Lee knocked out Philadelphian Samuel Teah with a thunderous right hand midway through the third round of their scheduled ten round main event at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, CT. The bout was competitive in the first two rounds, but Lee's dynamic punching power was the difference in round three.

A previous right hand by Lee dropped Teah earlier in the third. Teah took an eight count on one knee, but returned to the fight dutifully. Lee poured on the pressure, landing several more blows, while Teah held on and tried to weather the onslaught. However, when the final punch landed squarely on Teah's jaw, the fight was clearly over before he hit the canvas. The moment... (MORE)
