Ringside results here

As is our tradition here, if we covered a fight live and tweeted details from ringside** we like to post a recap later for any of you anti-social media types. Here is a chronological recounting of our live-tweets from ringside, made slightly more grammatical and a little bit less hashtaggie.

You can follow us on Twitter here

I’m in my happy place. #BroadwayBoxing follow along over @KOFantasyBoxing for tweets of all the action. Tweet! Tweet!! #Boxing
we're just getting started here at @FoxwoodsCT with #BroadwayBoxing 1st bout is up now...

Nelson Perez 135lbs of Marlboro MA battles Devon Grant 140lbs of New York, NY in a scheduled 4 rounder
Nelson Perez picks up the win with a one punch TKO. the time was 2:04 of the 2nd. he's now 2-0 (2).

Second bout is up now, females, 6 rounder featuring Helen Joseph 118lbs of New Haven, CT 16-3-2 (10) vs. Martina Horgasz 118lbs of Budapest, Hungary 5-3 (4) #BroadwayBoxing

Some good solid body punching in round one by Helen Joseph
Joseph had Horgasz on the run at the end of round four. Horgasz has her long hair tied in a braid that came loose in the last round causing a timeout to try and secure it. Seems like the corner tied it up securely before the fifth. Horgasz has a lot more to worry about in Joseph
Joseph's corner is asking for "more than one!" punch from their fighter as she's following Horgasz and not applying enough pressure.
Final round coming up now. Horgasz needs a kayo.
This is a weird equipment failure fight. First the braid of the fighter in the blue corner needed attention and now the red corner fighter's foul protector falls off and hits the canvas with half the final round to go.
Helen Jospeph picks up a UD by scores of 60-53 x 3 and improves to 17-3-2 (10). Martina Horgasz drops to 5-4 (4)

Next up, Jacob Marrero 127lbs of Bridgeport, CT 3-0 (2) vs. Juan Ibarra 127lbs making his pro debut

Wow! Jacob Marrero just made short work of debuting Juan Ibarra, dropping him twice with short chopping blasts of the left hand. The time was 2:06 of round number one.

here we go with bout number 4, Stephan Shaw 251lbs of St Louis MO, 11-0 (8) vs. Willie Jake Jr. 233lbs of Indianapolis, IN, 8-2-1 (2)

Stephen Shaw has BIG SHOT written across the front of his trunks and he landed it in the form of a left hook that sat Jake down with about a minute to go in the first. Jake had been doing the bulk of the boxing--a busy jab--up until that moment.
Shaw did so little punching and so much waiting in that second he may have lost the round despite a massive advantage in power. It doesn't count unless it lands.
Jake was just sent right through the ropes and almost into a judge's lap as Shaw scores a second knockdown.
Jake dropped again under a barrage of punches including several heavy rights. He is up and on steady legs again at nine and referee Johnny Callas lets it continue.
Referee Johnny Callas waved this one off in the 4th with Shaw crashing lefts and rights against the head of Willie Jake Jr. The time was :56 of round 4.

@KO_MoC86 makes her way to the ring @FoxwoodsCT for #BroadwayBoxing
Here we go with @KO_MoC86 142lbs of Providence, RI 15-7-1 (5) vs. Patricia Juarez 142lbs of Colorado 4-1 #BroadwayBoxing
Kali Reis in charge thus far. She's slighter of build but she doesn't seem to have lost any power. Her body shots look solid and she thumping Juarez to the head repeatedly with her right. Juarez bleeding.
HUGE uppercut from Kali Reis and Juarez still coming forward.
Kali Reis should walk away with a Unanimous Decision here. waiting on scorecards…
All three officials see it 60-54 in favor of Providence, RI's @KO_MoC86 who improves to 16-7-1 (5), fighting at the lightest weight she's ever scaled as a pro, 142lbs. She debuted 11 years ago at 143.

Next up, Hurshidbek Normatov 152lbs of Brooklyn, NY vs. Walter Wright 154lbs of Seattle WA

Contender alum Walter Wright being aggressive here but Normatov has been able to snake hard punches through the veteran's raised guard. In round four now, Normatov turning up the heat, Wright responding.
That fourth round looked close. Wright scored with a speedy right hand that Normatov never saw coming.
Normatov getting things done in spurts of speedy, jolting accurate punches. Then he rolls out with Wright in pursuit but mostly coming up empty.
Wright just stopped and stared at Normatov, impatiently waiting for the Uzbek to stop circling and start fighting. Normatov is winning, controlling most exchanges, but he does spend great portions of time on the run, watching but not punching.
Final round coming up. Normatov was looking up at the clock at the end of the seventh. He doesn't looked gassed out at all so maybe he was just curious.
Normatov watched the timer incessantly in that final frame but goes the distance in his longest bout to date, an 8 rounder. And he should come away with a lopsided victory even if there were some real lulls in the action, that may have been because he was concerned about going 8
The scorecards were 80-72 x 2 and 79-73 all in favor of Hurshibek Normatov, who picks up the WBA, NABA, USA Super Welterweight Title

here's the co-main event, Alicia Napoleon-Espinosa 161lbs of Lindenhurst, NY, 11-1 (6) vs. Schemelle Baldwin 163lbs of Newark, DE 3-0-1 (2)

Alicia Napoleon-Espinosa is a lot speedier and she's out-quicking Schemelle Baldwin through 2. Third round underway now and Napoleon-Espinosa hammering at Baldwin in a corner.
Baldwin took a lot of punishment in that third round. There's an abrasion on the bridge of her nose.
That's a good stoppage. Baldwin absorbing a lot of punishment and really not firing back in any sort of sustained manner. Showing zero resistance to the assault of Alicia Napoleon-Espinosa. The referee steps between the fighters in round 4. The official time was 1:30

Here comes the Main Event... Toka Kahn Clary 128lbs of Providence RI 26-2 (18) vs. Irvin Gonzalez 127lbs of Worcester, MA 12-1 (9)

Freddie Roach is in the Two-oh-three tonight! #EastCoast #BroadwayBoxing
these guys have quick hands! Toka Kahn Clary landed with a bit more power in a speedy, feeling-out first round
Clary cracked Gonzalez twice with single shots in the second round. He wasn't able to follow-up on either but no doubt got Gonzalez's attention.
Clary is incredibly quick. This fight is fun to watch because these guys are exploding forward behind power-shots and both guys are trying to land big.
Wow! Absolutely thrilling close to round 5. Irvin Gonzalez coming on, blasting away at Clary along the ropes. This crowd was screaming. Almost a really dangerous moment there too, when Clary's arm got tangled in the rope as he was firing back at Gonzalez. He quickly freed himself
I think Gonzalez has won at least two rounds here, and they were the last two. Feels like a momentum shift. Seventh round begins.
Gonzalez had changed the firing zone in that sixth round and closed the distance to one that favored him but in the seventh Clary reestablished his own favored distance, exploding in behind smashing single-shot lefts to the head
Clary scoring with the right up-jab to Gonzalez un-rushing chin.
Toka Kahn Clary back in control with just the 9th and tenth remaining.
Clary had Gonzalez along the ropes in a neutral corner for at least a minute of that final round but he was never able to hurt Gonzalez. Both fighters did a lot of missing and landing speedy glancing blows. Clary did more damage overall, no doubt, bloodying the nose of Gonzalez
Scores are 98-92 and 99-91 x 2 all in favor of Toka Kahn Clary who picks up the WBA/NABA/USA Super Featherweight title.

That’s the most exciting one-sided fight I’ve ever seen” says @ViewsfromShoes from Ringside @FoxwoodsCT for @DiBellaEnt’s #BroadwayBoxing Great Show tonight!

That’s all from here! I’m @FistThingsFirst and thanks for following along! Peace!
