Recap From Rosecroft!

Here is the recap from the Keystone Boxing card at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, MD:

Accokeek, MD junior middleweight "Swift" Jarrett Hurd scored a second-round TKO over Joshua Burns of Garland, TX.  Hurd broke Burns down until the bout was stopped at 2:39.  Hurd is now 7-0, four KO's.  Burns falls to 4-16-7, two KO's.

Waldorf, MD junior welterweight Mike "Yes, Indeed" Reed was also impressive in notching a third-round TKO over Roberto "The Heat" Lopez of Orlando, FL.  Lopez was stopped for the first time in his career as Reed's record rises to 4-0, three KO's.  Lopez is now 4-6-2, one KO.

DC light heavyweight "Mr. Amazing" Greg Newby remained undefeated with a tough, four-round unanimous decision over PJ Cajigas of Chicago, IL.  Newby came back from a questionable first-round knockdown to drop the game Cajigas in the second and controlled the bout from that point.  Newby is now 8-0, four KO's while Cajigas is 0-2-1.

Super middleweight Alexander "The Great" Johnson of DC won a six-round unanimous decision over Greg "Hot-Shot" Hackett of Philadelphia, PA.  Johnson showed veteran confidence and ability in winning a shutout on all three judges's cards in his first bout since December of 2012.  Johnson is now 13-1, five KO's while Hackett is now 2-12.

Largo, MD middleweight Jerrell "Supa" Scott lost a four-round unanimous decision to David "Rock Steady" Rohn of Chicago, IL in the pro debut for both boxers.  Rohn knocked Scott down twice while Scott scored one knockdown.

Capitol Heights, MD cruiserweight Devon "Mr. 2-11" Mosley and Santos Martinez of Adrian, MI battled to a four-round split decision draw.  There was a lot of holding and hitting in the contest as both guys tried to establish something inside.  Mosley earns a draw in his pro debut while Martinez has a record of 2-3-1, two KO's.

Capitol Heights heavyweight Deverine "6-9" Miner lost a four-round unanimous decision to Glenn "Showtime" Thomas of East Stroudsburg, PA.  By the third round of the bout, Miner looked like he wanted to just stop fighting.  Miner managed to finish his pro debut but there is no guarantee we will see him again.  Thomas evened his record at 1-1.

The matchmaker for the card was Brian Dillon and the ring announcer was Henry "Discombobulating" Jones.

Very good Maryland pro boxing show. Excellent display of local talent. Solidly matched for the most part.
