On January 26, 2007 – Power Productions produced one of the oddest boxing shows in recent memory at the National Guard Armory in Northeast Philadelphia. Overall, it was a quick night due to some early card knockouts which is becoming a standard during this outfits shows. Other surprises include a fighter puking in the ring mid fight, a noticeable hole in the ring which caused fighters to trip and a last minute change in length of the main event between Levon Warner and Dave Brunelli which was reduced from a six round bout to a four rounder. All of this combined with co feature Tyric Robinson’s fight being completely cancelled.
While there was a lot going on, brighter notes included the return of “King” Gabriel Rosado and the first pro glimpse of former amateur star “Hammerin” Hank Lundy. Ring Announcer Pat Fattore did a commendable job keeping the crowd entertained throughout the evening.
The main event had a lot of buildup, but in the end it was a snoozer as South West Philly native Levon Warner 6-3-2 (1 KO) won a majority decision over Tacony’s Dave Brunelli 6-2 (3 KOs) in a battle of local Heavyweights.
There was a lot of holding in this one. Warner controlled the action early using his jab and landing some punches on the inside as Brunelli charged in.
