Results from Twin River Casino in Lincoln, RI
By Alex Pierpaoli

Khiary Gray, 154lbs, of WorcesterMA, defeated Chris Chatman, 154lbs, of ChicagoIL, with a vicious seven round knockout to return to his winning ways after a July loss to Ian Green. Chatman, pressing the action throughout the bout, presented Gray with an aggressive, pressuring opponent. Switching back and forth from orthodox to southpaw, Chatman drove Gray back to the ropes repeatedly and opened a bloody gash over Gray's left eye at the start of the seventh. Starting cautiously, Gray landed the cleaner, speedier blows as the rounds wore on and he put Chatman down in the fourth round landing a hard right with his back along the ropes. In the seventh with blood streaming from the cut over his left eye, Gray slammed a hard left-right against the face of Chris Chatman that sent him reeling back and down. Chatman started to rise only to collapse again prompting the referee to halt the bout at 1:17 of round number seven. Khiary Gray rebounds from his July defeat on ShoBox and improves to 14-1 (11) while rugged Chris Chatman falls to 14-6-1 (5).

Anthony Marsella Jr., 139lbs, of ProvidenceR.I. stopped Bardraiel Smith, 132lbs, of PhiladelphiaPA, with a right hand at :45 seconds of round number one. Marsella is now 2-0 (1) while Smith falls to 0-2.

Irvin Gonzalez, 126lbs, of WorcesterMA, overwhelmed Cido Hoff, 125lbs, of ProvidenceR.I., dropping him twice in the first, staggering him in the second and hammering away at him with rights and lefts until Ref. Joey Lupino saw enough and halted the bout at 1:59 of round number 2. Gonzalez, a speedy, hard punching youngster who switches from southpaw to orthodox improved to 4-0 (4) with the win. In defeat, Cido Hoff falls to 1-1-1.

Kendrick Ball Jr., 165lbs, of WorcesterMA, defeated Rafael Valencia, lbs, of MedfordOre. by four round unanimous decision. Ball landed the smarter, flashier punches throughout the fight while Valencia looked to smother his efforts. In the fourth Ball looked close to scoring a knockdown when he bloodied the nose of Valencia and had him absorbing punishment. At the end of four the three ringside judges all saw the bout the same at 40-36 a piece. Ball improved to 4-0-1 (3) while Valencia dropped to 3-5-1 (2).

Cristobal Marrero, 144lbs, of New LondonCT, made quick work of Bruno Dias, 146lbs, of WoburnMA, stopping him at 2:32 of round number one after a vicious body assault. Marrero improves to 2-0 (2) with the win and Dias drops to 0-2.

Jose Rivera, 168lbs, of HartfordCT got things done quickly with a first round stoppage of Ben Peak, 168lbs, of ShrewsburyMA. Rivera caught Peak with a big right that put him flat on his back where he was counted out by referee Joey Lupino. The time was 2:34 of the first. Rivera improves to 2-0 (2) while Ben Peak makes his pro debut, now 0-1.

In the first bout of the night Jonathan Figueroa, 141lbs, of HartfordCT won a lopsided unanimous decision over Isaiah Robinson, 147lbs, of DurhamN.C. Figueroa pushed the action throughout, working behind a busy stinging jab and a hard right hand. In the final half of round four he bloodied the nose of Robinson, slamming him with right hands in a neutral corner. When the decision is announced it's unanimous with all three judges seeing it 40-36 in favor of Figueroa who improved to 2-0 (1). Robinson's record dropped to 3-4 (2).
