Recap From Rosecroft!

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

Landover, MD's "The Real Deal" Phil Jackson Benson captured the vacant WBC USNBC Super Middleweight title with a sixth-round TKO over a game but overmatched Scott "Cujo" Sigmon of Lynchburg, VA.  Despite hurting his right hand in the second or third round, Jackson Benson was in complete control throughout the contest before the bout was stopped at 2:45. The victory gives Jackson Benson his second consecutive regional title adding to the Fecarbox title he won in May.

Jackson Benson is now 13-1, 12 KO's while Sigmon, in his final pro contest, falls to 22-5, 12 KO's.

In one co-feature bout,  Forestville, MD junior middleweight Alantez "SlyAza" Fox won a workmanlike six-round unanimous decision over Centreville, VA's Zain "Tiger" Shah.  Fox used a great long jab and solid foot movement to keep Shah at bay and win a shutout (60-54) on all three judge's cards.  Fox remains undefeated at 12-0-1, four KO's while Shah falls to 5-2, three KO's.

The other co-feature saw Waldorf, MD junior welterweight Mike "Yes, Indeed" Reed end his first scheduled six-round contest in dramatic and explosive fashion with a brutal six-round knockout over a very determined Rameses Gil of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.  Reed scored knockdowns in the second and fifth rounds but was the victim of a knockdown in the sixth when his gloves touched the canvas after he slipped following a Gil right hand.

Seconds later, Reed exploded with two vicious right hands, the second sending Gil crashing to the canvas.  Referee Bill Clancy stopped the bout without a count at 1:23.  Reed is 5-0, four KO's.  Gil is 8-7-5, five KO's.

Two locals took tough losses on this card.  DC lightweight Joshua Davis dropped a four-round unanimous decision to Aaron Chavez of Melbourne, FL.  Davis was dropped in the second round and, although he finished the contest, was never a real factor the rest of the way.  Davis loses for the first time as a pro and is now 4-1, two KO's.  Chavez is now 4-3-1.

Also, Cheverly, MD light heavyweight Eric "The Inferno" Govan was stopped in the first round by Jess "Thunder" Noriega of Lynchburg.  Noriega dropped Govan with a brutal right hook.  Govan got up but was in no condition to continue.  The bout was stopped at 2:50 of the first.  Noriega is now 2-5, two KO's.  Govan is now 2-1.

DC featherweight Marcus Bates scored a fourth-round TKO over a very game Carlos Alcala of Hillside, IL.  The two men were very easily matched.  Bates finally landed some blistering combinations that ended the contest at 1:40.  Bates is 2-0, two KO's while Alcala is 0-2.

In the opening contest, Benjamin "Wildcat" Olinga of Silver Spring, MD won a four-round split decision over "Showtime" Tyrone Wright of DC.  Olinga was the slightly busier fighter in this contest and won his first pro bout.  His record is now 1-2.  Wright evens his record at 1-1.


Here is the call of the Jackson-Benson bout followed by the Post-Fight Wrap-Up.

The card was some shit. I told you guys that DAVIS was a fag. He lost... I told you Govan, who. I said Reed would knock the shit out of his opponent. Phil took care of Cujo,Fox fights are boring,all these local fighters fight nobody.

If you already assumed the fights were all boring and believed your predictions were all going to be true....then why did you go to the fights? Two hometown guys didn't win. I believe it was a better card. Good job Brian.

lol not sure what more you can ask for in a fightcard. The Mike Reed fight will be a runaway for beltway bout of the year and that was just 1 of 7 fights

Gary Digital Williams said...

I don't know if it's a runaway for bout of the year with Phil Jackson Benson's bout against Maxell Taylor in May in the running. It is definitely in the conversation!

Great call Gary and Jerome!

We got the OOOOOOOOHHHHH from Jerome. And Digital said right right after round 5:

This is......this is becoming merciless in some cases. It is ..... a remarkable situation.

Just a great, great call. I hope you guys get the live spreaker figured out. I enjoyed listening.

Did Phil lose any rounds against Maxell? This was a back and forth fight where both fighters hit the canvas. I think from a competitiveness standpoint and excitement this was better. The crowd was chanting "Mike Mike Reed" it was off the hook

Were the hell this Mike Reed kid come from. He stole the show what a fight

This was flat out a great night of boxing, Dillon is a very good matchmaker and Keystone puts on a great show. The card moved efficiently and the bouts were action fights, well matched.

Mike Reid's fight was a great bout to watch. His opponent was tough, skilled and could crack. He also took some great shots. Impressed with the fact that Reid's team had the confidence to put him in so tough so early. He is a great prospect and I can't wait to see him grow as a fighter. Many fighters in the area who beg for mismatches could learn from the Reid team.

Davis looked like he couldnt get any footing. His feet were sliding all over the ring, like his shoes were too big. Gary, what was the story there? He is too good a fighter to have lost that fight.

Actually, according to Juan Marshall, Davis did indeed have issues with his shoes.

Brian said...

It was a fabulous night of Boxing, it was great to see other promoters and matchmakers showing support as well. A lot of goodness going on.
