is our tradition here, if we covered a fight live and tweeted details from

Bout 1, Carlos
Marrero III of Bridgeport, CT 133lbs fights Jonathan Rojas of Newark, NJ 133lbs, 4rds.
both lightweights went right to work in the first with Marrero
landing more effectively. With about a minute to go in the first he belted
Rojas with an excellent left hook to the midsection #boxing
round 2 was a better one for Jonathan Rojas who landed
several hard body shots of his own. Marrero
looks to be
tiring at the close of the second
Lots of tugging, shoving and grappling in the third. Marrero
seems very tired and possibly a bit hurt. He may have gotten the worst of
things as both men sort of wrestled each other to the canvas. Ref Mercante Jr
Just a tremendous final 40 seconds or so for Carlos Marrero
who looks to have shifted that round back into his favor with multiple blasts
to the head and body of a confident Rojas. The third starts with Rojas
Heated fourth and final round but Carlos Marrero 3
punctuated it with a hellish body shot and should have done enough to come away
with this decision.
The Judges see the fight 39-37, 38-38 x 2 for a Majority
Draw! No winner! These gentlemen have to each go home with a draw which I guess
is better than suffering another loss. Rojas is now 0-1-1 while Marrero
is 0-2-1 This one begs for a rematch. #boxing
, Elvis Figueroa of New Haven,
169lbs battles Leandro DaSilva of Woburn,
) 4 rounds Super
strong first round for Elvis Figueroa who threw all his
punches in combination with bad intentions.
After a rough start that saw both
men clutching and grabbing and drawing a warning from the ref, Figueroa really
seemed to find a rhythm #boxing
Figueroa beating Da Silva to the punch. Silva doesn't seem
to be hurt by Figueroa's shots but he can't get out of the way of them
Another solid round for Figueroa who has Da Silva bleeding
from the nose. Coming up on the final round and Da Silva needs something big to
happen to turn things in his favor.
That was fun because Da Silva never stopped trying but I'd
be surprised if he won a single round. Figueroa outpunched him from the start.
Waiting on the scorecards... #boxing
scorecards are 39-37 x 2 and 40-36 all in favor of Elvis
Figueroa who improves to 5-0 (2) while Leandro Da Silva drops to 1-2 (1)
Bout #3, Kendrick Ball Jr of Worcester, MA 162lbs fights Alexis Gaytan of Weslaco,
TX 160lbs 6rds, Middles
Ball flattened with a straight right he never saw. He's up
but hurt... down again on a slip, he's gonna get saved by the bell here. Wow!
He had been landing nicely up till then but was a bit too relaxed. If he's
recovered during the rest he won't fight too relaxed in round 2
wow, that's was a tough close round 2. Gaytan looked to be
in control until the final minute where Ball cracked him with a left hook and
knocked his mouthpiece out. Great action. Gaytan ahead.
