Brooklyn, N.Y.

Boss Lady Promotions put together a fight card featured entertaining action in each bout. Fighters stepped into the ring hungry and eager to display their talent and boxing skill. If you were better person then you would have won big as all fighters representing the red corners won their fights, all by knockout fashion. The night began with great amateur boxing as fans in attendance witnessed good, young boxing talent from New Jersey. With lots of fans, friends, and family in attendance for the professionals the crowd cheered in excitement for each bout. Former undisputed welterweight champion and Brooklyn’s own Zab “Super” Judah did a marvelous job calling the play-by-play of each fight. With HBO’s fight analyst Harold Lederman and Kathy Duva (promoter of Main Events) in attendance it’s fair to say that this fight was a success and there will be more fight cards brought to us from Boss Lady Promotions.

Main Event – 10 Rounds Heavyweight

Chazz Witherspoon/Paulsboro, New Jersey (35-4, 27 KOs) vs Carlo Sandoval/Navojoa, Mexico (9-10-1, 6 KOs)

Witherspoon, the son of former 2x heavyweight champion Tim Witherspoon, used clean-effective punching as he landed his jabs and right hands at will. Witherspoon maintained a steady attack against his opponent Sandoval and by the beginning of the third round the clean-effective punching Witherspoon had begun to take its toll on Sandoval. Sandoval took a knee in the middle of the third round as he tried to recuperate from the amount of punishment he had received. In the fourth round Sandoval made a last ditch effort to stay in the fight as he tried to land several haymakers but the more experienced boxer Witherspoon continued to apply pressure, eventually causing the referee to call a halt to this heavyweight contest.

The Razor was “Razor-Sharp” as he took his time in defeating his opponent via first round technical knockout. The southpaw Rainone was savvy and slick, using his lead right-jab to set up a perfect left hand to the soloplex of Valenzuela. Valenzuela appeared to be hurt from the stiff punch. Rainone quickly went on the attack, pouring on punch after punch, causing his opponent to retreat to the corner.

“I hurt him to the body and he backed himself into the corner,” Rainone said.
