by Peeloshmee Deonarain
In the night's main event Andy Singh and Eric Ruiz were
both making their professional debuts. Singh tried to keep
the fight fast paced while Ruiz looked to keep a slower pace
and pick his shots. The fast paced Singh looked to connect
with his signature jumping knee throughout the fight. Ruiz
stalked Singh connecting with heavy shots while Singh fired
back with combinations landing punches in bunches which
would be the deciding factor in the fight. The judges
awarded Singh a majority decision.
Omar Ahmed and
Holland's Nisvet Sivac immediately went to work as their
fight started with both fighters exchanging punches. Ahmed
was able to sweep Sivac several times and work his knees
from the clinch. Sivac's nose began to bleed in the first
round and continued to do so throughout the entire fight.
The second round saw both fighters attack to the body
relentlessly and by the end of the round they were both
showing signs of fatigue. In the third round Ahmed connected
with a right hook that wobbled Sivac, refusing to go down
Sivac was able to recover and make it to the end of the
fight. The judges awarded Ahmed a unanimous decision victory
over a very tough Nisvet Sivac.
Turan Hasanov and
Eddie Martinez met in a rubber match after having split a
pair of fights as amateurs. There was a brief exchange
between the two fighters at the weigh-ins and the fight was
set to serve as the mediator for the bad blood between them.
The fight started with both fighters immediately meeting
in the clinch, after breaking Martinez kept Hasanov at bay
with teeps and leg kicks. The fighters then met in the
clinch again and while Martinez used his knees to score
Hasanov worked well with his hands. Hasanov's legs showed
the effect of the leg kicks by the time the second round
started. Hasanov began to wait for Martinez to throw kicks
before attacking with flurries. Hasanov connected with a
hook in the second round that dropped Martinez and the
referee gave him a standing 8 count, Martinez then made sure
to clinch to avoid letting Hasanov capitalize after the
knockdown. The third round began with Martinez attacking
with leg kicks while Hasanov attacked with punches. They
exchanged kick for punch until Hasanov decided to go for a
flying knee that missed. After going kick for kick they
clinched and Martinez clearly took the upper hand in the
clinch to end the fight. The judges did not help settle the
feud between the two as the fight was scored a Majority
Draw. Two judges scored the fight a draw while one judge
scored the fight for Martinez.
In the night's first pro bout Douglas Edwards met Sean Hinds
in a re-match hoping to avenge his previous loss to the
seasoned veteran. The taller Edwards tried to keep Hinds
pressed against the ropes, but Hinds was able to fight off
the ropes using some solid clinch work and counter attacks.
Both fighters connected with combinations and leg kicks, and
in the third round Hinds seemed to have Edwards hurt after
connecting with a hook to the body. The fight ended with
both fighters trading punches and headed to the score cards.
Hinds once again pulled out the win this time by unanimous
