I thought Dusty got beat, but a little home cooking does the body good. I'm a fan but think there are many other young'ins in the area better. I think he needs to break off from his Dad. His Dad seemingly has tunnel vision with his kid. That's understandable.

The fights were ok, I saw a good performance from Dusty, Newby and the other light heavyweight from out of town. As far as the rest of the fighters, we have much better talent here in DC that should get the exposure to make the show much more appealing. None the less, we appreciate keystone for giving these young guys the opportunity and is good for local boxing. In my opinion your get better talent, you get a better turnout. Newby looked very good, like a professional who knew what he was doing. I will like to see him back on the show. Matchmaker needs to step up his game and display local talent like Newby. Those other fighters besides the three I mentioned early, is a waist of my time and money. I am still a fan but to keep me a fan, got to get better talent here in DC, we got it!

"Matchmaker needs to step up his game and display local talent" I thought local talent was on display? I agree there are plenty of guys out there to showcase, but we can only have 8 fights. For the the record the matchmaker don't decide who gets put on. Last night was hardly a waist of time or money

Hey fatty... I mean Corky... I mean Brian! I know 3rd grade was really difficult for you buddy, but the correct grammer would be "the matchmaker does not decide"! Your doing good though, we are super proud of you... Gold star for you buddy.

Brian, overall you did a good job. If you are not allow to put on better fights, than I can understand. But once again there are much better talented fighters here that I am sure you can find a match for. Don't get your feelings hurt, like I said you did a decent job, only get better talent, we have it!

It ain't about talent, it's about be able to afford these guys. How can Keystone possibly afford the best that DC has, Lamont & Anthony peterson? Name some other real local talent beside them? Seth Mitchell is but he signed with Golden Boy. The others have not turned pro yet. So they do what they gotta do to make the show happen. Yes DC does have talent, but they are still in the amateurs. The only major players from the DMV are the Peterson Brothers. Hopefully, they will fight again here soon.

what about gary russell?

Are you freaking kidding? That guy will not step up to the plate. Why do you think HBO refuses to put him on ever again? He will be through the moment he grows some balls and fights a live body. Now his brother Antonia will fight anyone, anytime, anywhere. I see him a future world champion. He has knockout power in both hands!
