ROAD WARRIOR  READY FOR
NEXT ROAD TRIP

West Philadelphia road warrior, Dhafir Smith, 27-24-7, 4 KOs, heads back out on the road this week to face southpaw Tommy Karpency, 22-4-1, 14 KOs, and another set of officials potentially from Karpency's home-region. 

"I don't worry about the fighter," Smith said.  "I just worry about the judges. That's all I worry about, just getting a fair decision."

It seems to be the story of Smith's career, hitting the road, fighting in hostile... (MORE)

   

 
                 
 

   

BRYANT JENNINGS:
MY LIGHT SWITCH
IS NEVER OFF

Many fighters talk confidently about their careers, their upcoming fights and their abilities.  But few sell it like rising heavyweight contender Bryant Jennings, 18-0, 10 KOs.  The Philadelphian’s confidence doesn’t just spit from the tip of his tongue, it is thoroughly steeped all the way down to the bones of his 225 pound body.  He is as self-assured as any fighter I’ve ever seen. 

Saturday night at Madison Square Garden, Jennings takes on Mike Perez, 20-0-1, 12 KOs, a promising Cuban who now calls Cork, Ireland home.  (MORE)

   

 
                 
 

   

43 YEARS IN BOXING ABOUT TO PAY OFF FOR FRED JENKINS

Philadelphia’s Fred Jenkins has been training boxers for a long time.  Before that, he was a fighter himself.  The PA Boxing Hall of Famer has been in the sport for 43 years, and after all that time, and after developing countless boxers at the ABC Recreation Center in North Philly, all his hard work just might pay off with his latest pupil, heavyweight contender Bryant Jennings, 18-0, 10 KOs.  The pair travel to Madison Square Garden this weekend to take on Mike Perez, 20-0-1, 12 KOs, in a...  (MORE)

WITHERSPOON WINS IN WEST DEPTFORD

Chazz Witherspoon returned to the ring for the first time in more than two years Saturday night, and scored a final-round TKO over tough Tyyab Beale in a heavyweight bout which was full of two-way thunder for the nearly eight round distance. In addition to headlining the card at the Riverwinds Community Center in West Deptford, NJ, Witherspoon also promoted the show with the debut of his company, Silver Spoon Promotions. 

With more than thirty professional bouts to his credit, as well...   (MORE)

   

 

 
                 
       

PHILLY FIGHTERS
TAKE LUMPS
IN VEGAS

Four Philly-area fighters, Ronald Cruz, Dennis Hasson, Anthony Caputo Smith and Taneal Goyco, made the trip to Las Vegas to box on a nationally televised Golden Boy card at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Friday night, and all four tasted defeat in their separate bouts. Of the four boxers, only Hasson was expected to come away with a victory Friday night, but he too suffered a loss, the first of his rebooted boxing career.   (MORE)

   





 
                 
       

DARGAN HALTS FLORES

Karl Dargan lowered the boom on fellow-Philadelphian Anthony Flores Saturday night at the Mohegan Sun Pocono Downs in Wilkes-Barre, PA. The fifth round TKO kept Dargan's USBA Atlantic Coast Region lightweight title belt securely around his waist and extended his undefeated streak to 16-0 with 8 KOs.

More importantly, the performance by Dargan was an impressive and exciting display of his fine ring skills. He's shown promise all along, but has not exactly been a thrill-maker during his six and one half years in the professional ring. However, against the game Flores, Dargan shined and scored a showy stoppage of... (MORE)

   


















 
 
                 
 
 
   

WEBSTER REMAINS UNDEFEATED

Six-foot-four-inch, super middleweight southpaw Derrick Webster remained undefeated Friday night with a 6-round unanimous decision over Michael Gbenga in the last-minute main event at the Sheet Metal Workers Hall in South Philadelphia.  Webster’s bout was elevated to the feature slot when the scheduled main event between middleweights Derek Ennis and Lester Gonzalez was scratched on fight night due to a dispute over Ennis’ purse. 

With the main bout suddenly off, all eyes fell on Webster to close the show.  The lanky Glassboro, NJ fighter won clearly and improved his spotless record to 17-0, 8 KOs, but the fight itself was a bit dreary.   (MORE)
