Judah and Webster Win at Sun National Bank Center in Trenton Saturday!
By: Ken Hissner
Boss Lady Promotions Rene Aiken returned to Trenton, NJ, Saturday night.
In the Main Event former six time world champion welterweight Zab “Super” Judah, 43-9 (30), of Brooklyn, NY, in a mismatch from the start stopped Jorge Luis Munguia, 13-8 (5), of Tegucigelpa, Honduras, at 1:27 of the second round.
In the opening round Judah went on the attack until a south of the border punch dropped Munguia. Instead of the referee Ronald Bashier calling it that way he gave an eight-count. In the second round no bell sounded and the referee gave the boxers the go ahead to start the round. After a clash of heads Judah went after Munguia knocking him to the canvas causing referee Bashir to wave it off. The fans were not happy with this one.
In the co-feature super middleweight southpaw Derrick “Take it to the Bank” Webster, 22-1 (11), won a boring ten round decision over Thomas Awimbono, 25-6-1 (21), of Accra, GH, for USBO Title.
In the opening round there was hardly a punch landed. In the second round there wasn’t much more contact and the fans continue to let the boxers know they are no happy. In the third round Awinbono opened up with a right hand to the much taller Webster’s chin. Webster finally threw combinations to the body of Awinbono as he is continually back pedaling. In the fourth round Webster was a “hit n’ run” artist. Awimbono is trying to make a fight of it but can’t seem to catch up to the constantly moving Webster. In the fifth round Webster fought in spurt’s ending the round in a flurry.
In the sixth round it’s been all Webster’s jab with a few flurries. In the seventh round some fans are yelling “we want a fight” causing Webster to open up until he received an exchange from Awinbono with a looping right to the chin. In the eighth round a right by Awinboro south of the border dropped Webster to his knees. Webster came back throwing punches until he got hit with a right to the head and tied up Awimbono. They spent the final minute with hardly a punch thrown. When the ring announcer said “this is the tenth and final round” the fans started to cheer. Webster continued moving around the ring content to take the decision.
Judges had it 100-90 and 98-92 twice. This writer had it “no contest”!
In the swing bout local favorite cruiserweight Mike “The Beast” Hilton, 5-0 (5), of Trenton, NJ, won with a couple of knockdowns in the fifth of a scheduled six over Eric George, 4-14 (10), of Niagra Falls, NY, at 2:33 of the round.
In the first two rounds Hilton kept holding George’s head down and hitting him without warning from referee Bashir. In the third round they were like “rock m’ sock em’ robots”. In the fourth round George’s mouthpiece went out for the third time causing referee Bashir to deduct a point from George. In the fifth round Hilton dropped George twice causing Bashir to wave it off. George put up a good showing.
Middleweight Jimmy Kellerher, 3-0 (3), of Scranton, PA, easily stopped Courtney McCleave, 2-6 (1), of Kannapolis, NC, at 2:36 of the second round.
In the opening round Kellerher dropped McCleave with a right to the back of the head. In the second round Kellerher kept hitting McCleave in the face with right hands having him out on his feet when referee Glover called a halt.
Welterweight Andy Gonzales, 5-1 (5), of Worcester, MASS, scored a knockout over Jason “Warrior” Wahr, 4-14-3 (1), of VA Beach, VA, at 0:32 of the first round.
In the opening round Gonzalez dropped Wahr with a wicked left hook to the midsection. Referee Glover counted him out.
Cruiserweight Bryan Daniels, 3-0 (1), of Worcester, MASS, won a hard fought decision over Damian Lewis, 0-3 (0), of Niagra Falls, NY, over four rounds.
In the first round the much taller Daniels controlled the round from start to finish. In the second round Daniels landed numerous punches to the body and head which seemed to have little effect on Lewis who occasionally got a punch in. Daniels ended the round with six uncontested punches. In the third round it was all Daniels until less than a minute to go when Lewis rocked Daniels twice with right uppercuts. In the fourth and final round Lewis rocked Daniels with a left hook to the chin. Daniels continued to land punches but Lewis just brushed them off like gnats. A pair of left uppercuts by Lewis knocked the head of Daniels back. Daniels came right back with a double left hook to the head of Lewis as the bell sounded.
Scores were 40-36 twice and 39-37. This writer had it 40-36.
In the opening bout cruiserweight Brandon Robinson, 1-1 (1), of Upper Darby, PA, stopped Jermaine Corley, 0-5 (0), of Concord, NC, @2:59 of the first round.
In the first round Robinson dropped Corley twice. The second time referee Ronald Bashier waved it off.
