Yusaf Mack put on a terrific performance by capturing the USBA Light Heavyweight title with an exciting twelve round unanimous decision over former four-time world title challenger Omar Sheika.
Mack consistently beat Sheika to punch but Sheika was determined and landed many vicious blows himself that Mack took well. The two waged a back and forth war that had Sheika cut from both eyes and nose. Mack sealed the deal with a knockdown from a hard left hook in the twelfth and final round.
With the win, Mack (30-4-2) of Philadelphia thrusts himself back into the Light Heavyweight title picture.
In the co-feature, it was high drama and undefeated Derrick Webster had to hold on to remain perfect in his eight round Super Middleweight clash with little known Sabou Ballagou of Paris, France.
Webster controlled and dominated the action for six rounds until he got caught and dropped in round seven. Clearly hurt, Webster was just trying to make it to the final bell until he got dropped for a second time in the round. Webster made it out of the seventh and came back and showed why he is considered a top prospect as he came out in the final round and dominated Ballagou as he scored a knockdown of his own just before the final bell sounded.
Webster (13-0) of Glassboro won via unanimous decision and continues his climb to contendership.
Juan “The Beast” Rodriguez (9-0,4 KO’s)scored a scary second round knockout over Daniel Crabtree in their Welterweight bout.
Rodriguez landed a hard right that caused Crabtree’s head to bounce off the canvas and he was out for several moments before regaining consciousness.
Thomas “Cornflake” LaManna (8-0) remained undefeated with a workmanlike six round unanimous decision over very late replacement Sean Wilson in a Middleweight bout.
LaManna & Wilson were both slated for the show but when both of their opponents fell out less than twenty-four hours before fight time, LaManna agreed to move up in weight and box very nicely from the outside by mixing up his punches on the shorter yet heavier Wilson.
Wilkins Santiago (5-0) remained perfect by dropping Alando Swain en-route to a six round unanimous decision.
Anthony Young (4-0) and Jose Javier Calderon exchanged knockdowns but it was Young who took the final three rounds in their four round Jr. Welterweight bout.
David Roman Curiel (3-0) scored a four round unanimous decision over Dominique Foster.
Undefeated Cruiserweight Stivens Bujaj (8-0) remained perfect by stopping veteran Livin Castillo in round five of their six round bout.
