In the main event, undefeated Forestville, MD super lightweight Mykal "The Professor" Fox won an eight-round unanimous decision over "The Hudson Valley Kid" Daniel Sostre of Vega Baja, Puerto Rico. The 6'4" Fox worked everything off of his long jab that kept Sostre off balance throughout the entire contest. Sostre provided very little offense to counter Fox's assault. Fox won the bout by scores of 80-71 and 79-72 (twice) to raise his record to 14-0, four KO's. Sostre's record is now even at 13-13-1, five KO's.
The co-feature saw another Forestville, MD prospect Tyrek "I Get Busy" Irby win a six-round unanimous decision over Brandon "Bam" Sanudo of Baja California, Mexico. Irby battered Sanudo over the entire six rounds. So dominant was Irby's performance that one judge, John Gradowski, scored two 10-8 rounds for Irby despite the fact that there were no knockdowns in the contest. Gradowski scored the contest 60-52. Judges Brent Bovell and David Braslow saw the bout, 60-54. Irby is now 3-0, one KO while Sanudo drops to 5-5, two KO's.
Bowie, MD super lightweight Greg "The Sharpshooter" Outlaw, Jr. scored a fourth-round TKO over Mario Perez of Baja California, Mexico. After starting off as a southpaw in the first round of the contest, Outlaw switched to conventional in the second round and picked up his offensive pace, dropping Perez with a right hand. Outlaw would knock down Perez three more times in the contest before the bout was stopped at 1:32 of the fourth round. Outlaw, who recently graduated from Bowie State University, remains undefeated at 3-0, one KO. Perez falls to 1-2.
Super welterweight "Slick" Justin Hurd of Accokeek, MD stopped Alberto Delgado of Roanoke, VA in the third round. Hurd, the younger brother of IBF Super Welterweight champion Jarrett Hurd was dominant in his performance, battering Delgado throughout the contest and eventually forcing the Delgado corner to call a halt to the contest at 1:23 of the third. Hurd is now 3-0, two KO's while Delgado is 0-2-1.
Super featherweight Malik "Lil Leak" Loften of Suitland, MD made an impressive pro debut, scoring a fourth round TKO over Jemour Edwards of Orlando, FL. Edwards came out very aggressive and tried to pressure Loften in the first round. Loften, however, handled the pressure very well and started to land quality head and body shots of his own that, by the fourth round, overwhelmed Edwards and forced referee Brent Bovell to stop the contest at 2:41. Edwards falls to 0-2.
In the opening contest, Washington, DC super featherweight Jordan "Da Kidd" Peters scored a TKO at the end of the second round over Bryan Perez-Nevarez of Carolina, Puerto Rico. Peters bounced back from suffering a first-round knockdown from a Perez-Nevarez counter right hand. In the second round, Peters shot a straight right hand that dropped Perez-Nevarez. Peters turned up the pressure and dropped Perez-Nevarez a second time in the second round. Perez-Nevarez could not come out for the third round. Peters is now 2-0-1, two KO's while Perez-Nevarez is now 2-7-1, one KO.
