Paul Spadafora has cooled down "Red Hot" Robert Frankel.It wasn't an easy fight; Frankel revolted to Spadafora's amazing defensive game. He drilled forward with flurries that could only glance the gloves of the undefeated Light Welterweight contender. But in the end it was a decisive victory for Spadafora on the scorecards by margins of 99-91, 98-92 and 97-93. Frankel ended the bout with swelling around his cheeks and a big gash underneath his eye.
Spadafora is languishing for a title shot. After exceptional wins to Solomon Egberime, Humberto Toledo and Robert Frankel he has earned him self a rightful position in the divisions top twenty. The fight with Robert Frankel saw him utilizing that sharp southpaw jab and gutting left cross that earned him the IBF Lightweight crown in the earlier part of the 20th century.
Either way, it's now definitive that Paul Spadafora's comeback is no joke. He is a force to be reckoned with in the steaming hot Light Welterweight title picture. It is hoped he will be back on the national stage very soon against more stiff opposition.
In a four rounder prior to the main event exceptionally rising heavyweight prospect Ed Latimore (2-0-0 2 KO's) used his big right hand and and hellacious body punching to finish Donnie Crawford (1-6-2 1 KO) in two strongly eventful rounds.
Fan favorite Wilkens Santiago fired past the outgunned journeyman Mustufa Johnson (9-16-1 2 KO's) to an impressive six round decision victory. The scorecards read a one-sided 60-54, 59-54, 59-55 for the local Puerto Rican-American boxer.
Local club sensation Billy Hutchinson (6-1-2 4 KO's) continued his regional raise by withering Damien Antoine (11-45-2 5 KO's) to a vicious fourth round finish. It's a foregone conclusion we will see much more of this brilliant fighter.
Early in the bill boxing fans were introduced to another Heavyweight prospect by the name of Travis Clarke (3-0-0 2 KO's), he bombarded away early to finish off the then-undefeated Martez Williamson (1-1-0 0 KO's) in only the first stanza! Opening up the bill Light Middleweight Joey Holt kept his record a flawless one with a fourth round knockout over the heavily formidable Austin Marcum (4-3-0 2 KO's).
