Featured fighters Boyd Melson (13-1-1) & Luis Rosa (15-0) closed out 2013 on a great note with impressive performances in separate bouts at Lou Dibella's most recent "Broadway Boxing" event.
Melson, the former US Army Boxing champ, had no issue out boxing the game & experienced trial horse Gundrick King over 8 exciting rounds. Melson was consistently able to beat King to the punch and out worked his opponent until the final bell. Melson, who donates each and every purse to JustaDollarPlease.org, will look to carry this win into 2014 which he expects to be a big year in his career.
Top DBE prospect Luis Rosa (15-0) had a quick but impressive night in his 4 round destruction of Andre Wilson (13-7-1). Rosa, proving he was ready for the next level, dropped Wilson in the 1st then again in the 4th when he stopped him with a well placed body shot. Rosa, with a big start to 2014, could find himself in title contention by the end of the year.
Also in action Craig McKewan (22-4-1), who was once a top middleweight contender, returned to the rinbg against journeyman Dashon Jordan (15-3). McKewan was able to continue after an early knockdown at the hands of Jordan but was never able to find his rhythm. He was consistently beaten to the punch by the journeyman and looked like a shell of himself a few years ago. Time will tell if McKewan will be able to bounce back from this loss but his chances are not good.
