On Friday, May 6, 2016 – it was the Kings Promotions team of Marshall Kauffman and David Feldman putting on a 10 fight card at the 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia. It was a well-attended night of fights, and with the exception of a delay that ran a little over one hour due to the ambulance being late, it was a good show.
In the main event, Super Middleweight Christopher “Ice Cold” Brooker, 9-1 (5), of Philadelphia scored a knockdown and won a hard-fought 8-round unanimous decision over Atlantic City’s Antowyan “Ice Man” Aikens, 10-2-1 (1).
For the first two rounds it went back and forth with Aikens boxing and Brooker coming forward receiving a cut in the second round by his left eye. Cut-man Moe Morales would keep it in tact the remainder of the bout. In the third round Brooker was finally getting through the defense of Aikens and dropped him with a right to the chin. In the fourth round Aikens continued to box Brooker not allowing him to get the big punch in again.
