Rosecroft Raceway (Fort Washington, MD): This past Saturday night, the team of King’s Promotions and Keystone Boxing packed the house with tons of fans as they watched six-bouts that featured up and coming talent from within the DMV area (D.C., Maryland, Virginia). The DMV area (D.C., Maryland, Virginia) is full and rich with boxing talent and both promotional companies continue to give fighters the opportunity to build their local fan base. Both companies believe in the old tradition of “building talent from the grassroots.” Saturday night’s fight card gave way to more exciting fights, with expected future fights from each fight on the horizon.
Nicknamed the “The Professor”, Fox gave a boxing lesson against Sostre in the main event, while winning a unanimous decision. The 6’4 Fox used his height to slip punches from the shorter Sostre and his reach to land his jab repeatedly throughout the bout. Fox displayed a technical style in which Sostre had no luck to land anything of significance against the taller man.
At twenty-one, with his height and reach advantage, this young prospect continues to improve with each fight. Fox is no doubt a difficult task for an up and coming light or super lightweight to face.
Irby and Sanudo wasted no time in going after one another. Each fighter began the throwing punches, trying to draw a quick knockout. As the crowd cheered him on, chanting “keep touching him, land to the chest”, Irby (the better skilled boxer) was more effective with his punch output, and won a unanimous decision against the tough Sanudo.
Outlaw Jr., who came into the bout with a heavy heart, dedicated his performance to a friend who recently passed away. In the first round, Outlaw Jr. landed a powerful shot to the body of Perez, which appeared to leave his opponent winded and having difficulty to breathe. Known as “The Sharp-Shooter” Outlaw Jr. showed his accuracy, landing clean and precise shots to both the head and body of Perez. Outlaw Jr. controlled the pace of the fight, remained consistent, and scored several knockdowns during the bout.
Outlaw Jr. went on to give his friend, watching from above, a dominating performance and winning his fight with a TKO stoppage in round four (1:32).
With tons of fans in attendance, Hurd (the younger brother of current IBF super welterweight champion Jarret “Swift” Hurd/20-0, 14 KOs), gave the fans in attendance an exciting third-round stoppage of his opponent. Nicknamed “Slick”, Hurd came out of his corner decked out in all white. The energy in the room was turned up to an all-time high. When the bell sounded Hurd sprung across the ring and immediately went into attack mode.
Delgado quickly found himself in the corner, trying to fend off hard body shots from Hurd. During the next two rounds, Hurd continued to bang away at his opponents body while landing clean uppercuts on the inside. In round three, the continued attack was too much for Delgado to withstand as Hurd defeated his opponent, via TKO at 1:23 of the round.
Loften looked impressive against Edwards in his professional debut as he scored a TKO victory at 2:31 of round four. When the fight began, Edwards came out the gate, guns blazing. Loften took maintained his composure, adjusting to the distance between himself and Edwards. During the second round, Loften was more comfortable and began to take control of the bout.
As the fans in attendance chanted “body, body, body” Loften began to throw nonstop punches to the midsection and ribcage of Edwards. Edwards appeared to slow down and his punch output lessened in the third round. Loften continued to press his attack, while continually landing punches on the inside. Loften would go on to knockout his opponent in the fourth round to capture the first win of his career.
In the first bout of the night, Peters the bar high against his opponent Perez-Neveraz as he began the first round landing powerful shots to the body. Perez, trying to fight back, withstood the early onslaught of the faster and more skilled Peters. In the second round, Peters went hunting for his prey, landing a straight right-hand that dropped Perez-Neveraz to the canvass.
As his opponent rose to his feet to beat the count, Peters went right back on the attack, landing a series of hard punches, causing the referee to call a halt to the bout. Peters won via second-round TKO stoppage, giving him the first knockout victory of his career.
