In Atlantic City, NBC 10 Sports anchor and former Philadelphia Eagles Vai Sikahema had no problem wiping the ring with the most hated man in baseball Jose Canseco scoring a 1st round knockout.

 July 18th marks another good night of boxing as Hall of Famer J. Russell Peltz returns to the New Alhambra for a 7 bout card. On top is a battle of undefeated featherweights when Teon Kennedy takes on Thomas "KO" Snow of Baltimore. In the co-feature we have a light heavyweight showdown when Wildwood's Chuckie Mussachio puts his undefeated record on the line against Richard Stewart in a boxer vs. brawler match up. Both sides seem very confident in their chances of getting the W. A lot of controversy is swirling around the scheduled Simon "One Punch" Carr vs. Larry Robinson fight which is leaving some predicting that it won't go on as expected. Speculated problems with fight card photos, ticket sales and other squabbles were the main cause of doubt. Simon Carr retorts by saying " What's wrong with people?" "Do they really think I am afraid of Larry?"  So as intended, it looks like it will be South Philly vs. South Philly in South Philly after all. Many fans are split down the middle on who would actually win this fight which promises to be a good one. Also slated for action are Dennis Hasson, Anthony Flores, Tommy Garcia & Martinus Clay in separate bouts. Stay tuned for more info.

You couldn't quite feel the electricity but you sure could hear it as a record low turn-out at The National Guard Armory barely cracked the 150 person mark for a card which featured the return on former Heavyweight title challenger Michael Grant. On a night where almost everyone reportedly went home broke, including the 50/50 raffle winner, Michael Grant used this opportunity to shake off over a year of ring rust to win an 8 round unanimous decision over Demetrius King. In the co-feature Alexander Mancara won a 6 round majority decision over Jameel Wilson in a fight that did have some good 2-way moments. The highlight of this night was Tim Witherspoon Jr, whose fight was reduced to an exhibition bout because (get this) his opponent reportedly came in underweight, scored what could possibly be the first ever exhibition bout TKO. In women's action, Tanzee Daniels and Tiffany Woodward gave it their all through 4 rounds with Daniels coming out on top by way of split decision. Jose Guzman slightly out worked the debuting Jamar Sanders to take a 4 round majority decision win. In the opener, Gustavo Dailey showed some grit fighting through 2 cuts over his eye and still got the job done in his hometown to win a clear unanimous decision. Full report with photos to come soon. Stay tuned.....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally the dust has settled and Bridgeport's Harry Joe Yorgey (20-0-1, 9ko's) is contractually off the bench, free to continue with the much delayed fight against Jason LeHoullier (21-0-1, 8ko's). This fight is signed, sealed and will be delivered August 22nd live on ESPN2 from Nashville, TN for the NABA Super Welterweight title and a top 15 ranking in the WBC. Yorgey hasn't fought since October of '07 due to legal beef with manager Jimmy Deoria over signing an exclusive promotional contract with Art Pellulo's Banner Promotions. After months of litigation which have all but ruined a long standing relationship, the PA state athletic commission stepped in and made a ruling which basically allows Yorgey to pursue any fight he wants without the approval of Deoria and also cut Deoria's percentage of purses earned until the official contract expires in February of 2009. With the legalities out of the way, the winner of this fight could slip their way into the bigger picture of an open but prospect heavy junior middleweight division. In Yorgey's favor, after viewing LeHoullier's last performance, many feel this is a very winnable fight for Harry Joe. Be sure to tune in 9pm sharp.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It's a world class conversation when former IBF Super Middleweight Champ Charles "The Hatchet" Brewer goes one on one with current Philly's IBF Cruiserweight champ Steve "USS" Cunningham in an exclusive interview live from Steve's newly opened business, Lucky's Pizza.

Style, either you have it or you don't. Tommie "Big Poppa" Speller has it and it comes in a variety of forms. In the ring his style is that of a fighter who is looking to knock you out. When he is not in the ring, you can usually catch him ringside giving them a run for their money as the best dressed man in the house. But Tommie Speller's story goes deep than a hard right hand and a fresh pair of shoes. Like most who grew up in Philly, his road wasn't an easy one. After a lifetime of fighting in the streets Big Poppa brought his two handed attack to the professional boxing ring in October of 2006. His career started off strong scoring three knockouts in his first three pro fights. There was some controversy to follow and now a stretch of inactivity for Team Poppa. Some were starting to wonder "where is he at?" Big Poppa recently took the time to clear the air and go in depth on how he got started, what has been happening in his life and what he looks forward to next in the ring. Read closely because Big Pop drops a bomb revealing that he was recently diagnosed with stomach cancer but insists he isn;t finished as he drops a few potential names in this exclusive interview! http://sports.phillykeith.com/2008/06/tommie-big-poppa-speller-interview.html#links

Ringside reports and photos

 

Power Productions returned to the National Guard Armory and this 5 fight card came as advertised, leaving many in attendance saying "now that is Philly boxing" after this very entertaining card . In the first of three title fights Tyric "Too Sweet Robinson rose to the occasion and defeated Lenny DeVictoria by way of unanimous decision to become the new USBA regional Jr Welterweight champion.  In the 2nd title fight, Rasheem Brown cruised through the first three rounds, but then all hell broke loose as he and Jameel Wilson went toe to toe and blow for blow in an early candidate for Philly Fight of the Year. In the Main Event, Mexico's Jose Hernandez came to Philly with a full tank of diesel fuel and scored a big upset over the previously undefeated Rasheim Jefferson to become the new USBA featherweight champion. On the under card Tony Ferrante KO'd Ray Ruiz in the 2nd round with a nasty straight right, leaving him out on the canvas for more than 5 minutes. Hopefully the Ruiz is ok. "The New" Ray Robinson scored 3 knockdowns in the first on Jason Jordan but the rugged journeyman was able to last the distance only to lose a very lopsided decision. Click here for my full recap and to leave a comment, we also called in "The Hatchet" Charles Brewer to give his championship perspective, click here to read the Hatchet blow by blow report. The photos are finally in, I apologize for the delay.

 

 

At the Legendary Blue Horizon, Joey Abell gave some payback when he knocked Maurice Wheeler out of the ring at the end of the second round to secure his 20th win as a pro and a house full of fans chanting "Joey, Joey, Joey". Amazingly enough seconds after this KO of the Year candidate, Gerald "The Jedi" Nobels stormed the ring and claimed he wants next. Joey responded by saying "you can get it too if you really want it" Hook it up Elbaum! In the co-feature, Gee Cullmer squeaked out a majority decision win over the known spoiler Mustapha Johnson in their 6 round middleweight fight.  Ecuadorian middleweight Mario Mina made a statement in his pro debut with a huge knockout win over a very tough Pedro Calla of Peru in what turned out to be the best fight of the night. Philly's Gerald Smith turned in his second strong outing at The Blue, this time battering Jose Guerrido around the ring til that corner threw in the towel in round 2. Swedish meatball Anders Holmberg was dropped in the 1st but got up and scored a fishy 2nd round KO Archie Hopkins. Investigations are pending..... Showtime Steve Chambers capped off the night with a win over Jean Petit of Haiti in what was a pretty wild fight and had the ladies screaming "Showtiiiiiiiime". Osvaldo Rivera, Joel De La Paz & Calvin Goldwire all won by decision. Simon "One Punch" Carr's official fight fell out but he hung around to put on an exhibition with Tommie "Big Poppa" Speller.

Boxing’s “The All-American Prizefighter” Rob Calloway (74-7-1, 58 KOs), of St. Joseph’s, Missouri strengthened his position as a cruiserweight contender in all 4 organizations with a sensational 9th round knockout at 3:05 of the round over previously unbeaten Juan Carlos Robles (9-1, 4 KOs), Waynesboro, Virginia.  A 4 round middleweight match had Charlottesville, Virginia’s George Rivera (8-1, 3 KO’s) a winner over late substitute Clarence “Sonny Bono” Taylor (12-14, 6 KOs), New Castle, Delaware, due to a very good left jab.  Judges Weisfeld and Gross had it 39-37 with LaRosa at 40-36.  Referee was Rosato. Jesus Barbosa (3-0-1, 3 KOs), Philadelphia, used a Tyson-like style to come back in the 2nd round after having his hands full in the first with the taller Shavaris Buie (0-4), Brooklyn, NY.  Referee Rosato called a halt to this featherweight match at the end of the round when Buie complained of an injured hand. Ken Hissner was ringside read his full report here.

 

The conditions outdoors in the Tri-State area were were cold, rainy and flat out miserable this past Friday night. While most would prefer to stay inside on an evening like this, the Philly fight fans weathered the storm to create a sold out, jam packed audience at The New Alhambra. In the ring, the main event of the evening was a rematch between NABF featherweight champion Rogers "The Tiger" Mtagwa of South Philly via Tanzania and Aldo Valtierra of Mexico who looked to settle some unfinished business from their tight knit affair from the summer of 2007. In the co-feature, undefeated featherweight Teon Kennedy of North Philly was making the leap to 8 round status against this toughest opponent to date in Castulo Gonzalez of Lynn, MA. The under card had a 6 rounder  with Victor Vasquez taking of Rami Ibraham of the Oven Gym, Travis "The Animal" Thompson took on Emmanuel Rosas and three former Golden Gloves champions in Anthony Flores, Dennis Hasson and Perdo Martinez all made their pro debuts in separate bouts.

On February 15, 2008 Big Box Promotions & Fighting City Productions collaborated for a 5 fight card at The Commerce Bank Arts Centre in Sewell, NJ. Controversy surrounded the card and the original line-up was changed at the last minute but in the end, it was Eric “Murder” Mitchell of Philadelphia who stepped in on less than one day notice and showed a lot of grit as he shook off  1 ½ years of ring rust to earn a razor thin, 10 round unanimous decision over Edwin Vasquez to claim the vacant IBC Americas light middleweight title. In the co-feature, “The Gentleman” Chazz Witherspoon started slow but finished fast scoring a TKO in the 4th over Jonathan Haggler of South Carolina. Jesus Barbosa of Philly scored three knockdowns in the 1st round, two with hard left hooks to the body and following up with a crushing left hook to the ear of Melvin McGuire to seal the deal at 2:16 of the round.

In the main event, Lenny DeVictoria hits the .500 mark as he earned a unanimous decision win in a tough fight over fellow journeyman Derreck Moon.

Lenny DiVictoria wrapped up the Philly 2007 boxing season with a fight of the year performance as he knocked out Elad Schmouel in the 6th in a great 2 way action bout.  Both fighters gave it their all but only one was left standing over 6 rounds of junior welterweight action. In the co-feature, Jules Blackwell earned ranking on the next pound for pound list with a hard fought win over Paul Fernandez in a match up of unbeaten featherweight prospects.

In a fast paced fight Jones showed speed, power and the ability to adapt on the fly. In the co-feature Big John Poore overcame a slow start and found himself in a deep war with Dan Whetzel over 8 round.

A rematch is a must! Gurcharan Singh won an uninspired unanimous decision over "Millionaire" Mike Miller.
