King's Boxing Promotions, GFL.TV and Marshall Kauffman vowed to provide one of the
best Pennsylvania cards of the year. And they did not disappoint.
In the co-headlining bouts Bridgeport based contender Harry Joe Yorgey
(26-2-1 12 KO's) swung his way past a highly prepared Julius Kennedy
(7-4-1 3 KO's) in a world class slugfest and Naim Nelson (10-0-0 1 KO)
showed his superior fundamentals in outboxing Georgian born
Philadelphian Georgi Kevlishvili (12-4-1 3 KO's).
Harry Joe Yorgey may not have made a statement on an international world
title stage, But he did add to his legion of followers from his native
Bridgeport and suburban Pennsylvania with a close split decision win
over six rounds to the game Julius Kennedy. After some mid-round
adversity he managed to work his way off the ropes - literally and
figuratively to edge a close win to Kennedy.
A rematch is hoped for. But the world ranked hopeful wants to get his
career on the move. Yorgey always provides a brilliant show for the
hardcore and casual boxing fans. One thing is certain, We'll see both
men in the ring again very soon.
In the second part of this doubleheader Naim Nelson demonstrated the
absolute fundamental skills and balance it takes to be an elite fighter
in this game. Outworking tough Georgian-American fighter Georgi
Kevlishvili over eight rounds.
Kevlishvili, a rugged 31 year old
showed glimpses of hope in scattered heavy attacks to Nelson's head and
body. But the inconsistency led to him dropping many seemingly close
rounds and loosing fairly lopsided margins. This may have been the
toughest fight and the best performance of the quick and agile Nelson's
Earlier on the bill Tevin Farmer (8-4-1 1 KO) used his wispy right hand and
compact movement to break down Esteban Rodriguez (6-6-1 1 KO) over eight rounds. The
Puerto Rican born boxer failed to utilize his rather
ineffective aggression and his opponents superior movement left him
debilitated of landing his heavier shots throughout.
Veterans Travis Thompson (4-9-2 3 KO's) and Joshua Arocho (3-6-3 2 KO's)
exceeded expectations in a well anticipated supporting bout. Thompson
showed his speed in higher volumes of work while Arocho attempted to
work with heavier shots down the middle. They had to settle for an
evenly disputed draw.
Sultan Staton (1-0-0 1 KO's) made a successful ring debut frustrating Kenneth
Browne (0-2-0 0 KO's) with a stoppage loss on his resume. Staton
dominated the fight simultaneously chipping Brown apart physically and
mentally to a lopsided stoppage loss in only two rounds.
