Valley Forge, PA (April 17, 2015)–Tomorrow night, April 18, at the Valley Forge Casino Resort, King’s Promotions will present an outstanding night of boxing that will be headlined by an intriguing 8-round super middleweight bout between Phillip Jackson Benson and Darnell Boone.

But one of the featured attractions will see the continued growth of 18 year-old jr. lightweight Milton Santiago jr (9-0, 3 KO’s)

Santiago of Warminster, PA will take on Ray Velez (3-6-1, 1 KO) in a bout scheduled for six-rounds.

“My training went well. I trained hard and I sparred with undefeated 130-pounder Jason Sosa, welterweight contender Ray Robinson and undefeated lightweight Angel Ocasio,” said Santiago.

As most 18 year-olds, Santiago is a student. The senior at William Tennant High School is also a student of his craft and did some research on his opponent.

“I know he is from New York. He is a rough fighter and he looks to be my toughest opponent to date. I know I have to be smart and fight my heart out.”

As most kids his age, Santiago knows that the most important aspect of his career that while he stays undefeated he has to continue his growth as a fighter.

“I have improved on sitting on my shots. The thing I been working on most is defense and changing it to offense. Slipping shots and setting up for counters.”

With each, Santiago, who is managed by Moz Gonzalez and Eddie Woods, gets closer to a goal of being a world champion.

“I think in the next 12 months, I want to be fighting for some regional titles and hopefully they will lead to the biggest opportunities. I am looking for another seven fights in 2015.”

“I have always had a high confidence level. I still get nerves here and there but that is common in all fighters. But I always have a lot of confidence. I just want to thank everyone who has supported me and I know I will have continued success.”

In the eight-round co-feature, undefeated welterweight
Jamal James (15-0, 8 KO’s) of Minneapolis, Minnesota will see action against Daniel Sostre (13-10-1, 5 KO’s) of Highland, New York

In eight-round bouts:

Immanuwel Aleem (11-0, 7 KO;s) of Richmond, VA. will take on Emmnauel Sanchez (6-2, 1 KO) of Laredo, Texas in a middleweight bout.

David Grayton (10-0, 8 KO’s) of Washington, D.C. will fight Grayson Blake (6-3, 2 Ko’s) of State College, PA. in a welterweight bout.

Jarrett Hurd (14-0, 8 KO’s) of Accokeek, MD. will battle tough veteran Eric Mitchell (23-11-2, 11 KO’s) of Philadelphia in a middleweight bout.

In six-round bouts:

Milton Santiago (9-0, 3 Ko’s) of Philadelphia will take on Ray Velez (3-6-1, 1 KO) of Brooklyn, NY. in a jr. welterweight bout.

Ivan Golub (6-0, 4 KO’s) of Brooklyn, NY will box Thomas Allen (4-7, 4 KO’s) of St. Joseph, MO. in a middleweight bout.

Dauren Yeleussinov (1-0, 1 KO) of Brooklyn, NY. will fight Julio Garcia (6-8, 3 KO;s) of Rinocn, PR. in a super middleweight bout.

Dennis Galarza (7-1, 4 KO’s) of Brooklyn, NY battles Jesus Lule (7-11, 1 KO) of Fort Myers, FL. in a lightweight fight.

Vidal Rivera looks for two in a row this Saturday night in Pennsauken, NJ
Chazz Witherspoon battles Galen Brown in main event. Plus undefeated Matthew Gonzalez, Obafemi Bakari, Courtney Blocker, Erick Kitt & Malik Hawkins
For Immediate Release

Pennsauken, NJ (April 16, 2015)–On Saturday night, April 18 at the GPG Event Center (Formerly the Woodbine Inn) in Pennsauken, New Jersey, undefeated featherweight Vidal Rivera will look for his 2nd consecutive win when he takes on Tyron Stewart in a bout sched for four rounds.

In the main event, heavyweight contender Chazz Witherpsoon will be in action when he takes on Galen Brown in a bout scheduled for 10-rounds.

The show is promoted by Witherspoon’s Silver Spoon Promotions.

Rivera of Camden, New Jersey made a sensation pro debut on January 24 when he took out Jose Garcia in one-round. He registered three knockdowns in the bout which thrilled his large cheering section that came from nearby Camden.

“Everything has been going great,” said Rivera. “I am just sweating out the last few pounds but I am right where I want to be.”

Rivera said he is less nervous then he was in his maiden voyage to the ring but as a fighter but he is ready for his next challenge.

“There will always be butterflies but this time it is a piece of cake.”

In Stewart, Rivera fights a guy who only has one fight under his belt as well. That was a 2nd round stoppage defeat to undefeated Edwin Reyes last October 11.

“I know nothing about him other than he is from North Carolina. I always train like he is the best opponent that I will face.”

Rivera works as a crime analyst in Camden. In that line of work he looks at video cameras that are located all over the city and he can see what is going on. He can correlate that to his young professional career.

“It helps me with being focused and discipline. It gives me a mindset and it puts me in forefront of things and like boxing it all comes back to me.”

“I expect big things from me. I believe I have it on me to be something special,” finished Rivera.

More than 100 Fights into His Career, Jeremy Horn Taking it Day by Day

Mick Hammond, March 28, 2015, MMA Weekly

For a fighter who has become almost defined by how often he competes – sometimes multiple times in a single day on numerous occasions – for veteran Jeremy Horn to take two years off from the sport would have been unthinkable not too long ago.

But that’s exactly what Horn did in 2012 and 2013. But it’s not because he was banged up because of his 100-plus fights or anything, but rather to work on the business side of his life.

“The thing is, I wasn’t banged up to begin with,” Horn told MMAWeekly.com. “I’m never banged up or ever hurt.

“I wanted to take a little bit of time off so I could work on the gym and try to build up the program. When I’m fighting regularly it kind of takes a big hit, so I wanted to take that time off.”

Horn returned to fighting last year with victories over Dan McGlasson and Brian Imes, raising his current winning streak to four and giving him wins in 11 of his last 13 fights.

“It’s always good to fight,” said Horn. “I was always kind of anxious. I was training pretty regularly, but there’s a big difference between training regularly and training for a fight. It was nice to get back into it and do what I love to do.”

Horn (91-21-5) will kick off his 2015 on Saturday at SCS 25 in Hinton, Okla., against fellow former King of the Cage champion Tony “Kryptonite” Lopez (36-17) in a light heavyweight main event.

Tony Lopez Making the Most of Career Resurrection

Filed under: Article, MMA News, Past Events, Press Release 

Mick Hammond, March 28, 2015, MMA Weekly

Former King of the Cage heavyweight and light heavyweight champion Tony “Kryptonite” Lopez had gone through a rough patch the past couple years heading into 2015.

Following a seven-fight winning streak, Lopez went on to lose nine of his next twelve bouts and both his titles before finally turning things around this year with back-to-back wins.

“I thought maybe that was it and it was the end of my career, but in 2015 I decided to give it one last run and I started to train better and do all these things I should have been doing back in the day,” Lopez told MMAWeekly.com.

“The first fight was a test to see if I still got it and can perform, and I got the win and it boosted my confidence up. The second fight was a heavyweight title fight and I figured if I beat him that I’m on the right track, and I ended up submitting him in the second round.”

Lopez (36-17) will look to keep his winning streak going on Saturday in Hinton, Okla., against one of MMA’s all-time greats in Jeremy Horn (91-21-5) at SCS 25.

After hitting rock-bottom, Tim Hague now aimed at crushing jaws on way back to top

By: Mike Bohn March 27, 2015 MMA Junkie

More than eight years and 28 fights into his pro MMA career, Tim Hague said he’s finally prepared to meet his potential.

Hague found success early in his career under the King of the Cage banner. He won the organization’s heavyweight title as part of 10 wins in his first 11 pro fights.

He then received the call to make his UFC debut at UFC 98 in May 2009 and would submit Pat Barry in the first round. Unfortunately after that point, his career went into a backslide that only now – nearly six years later – can he say he’s recovered.

Hague spent much of recent years trying to rediscover his groove. He suffered three-straight losses under the UFC banner and was cut from the organization in May 2010. After that, he failed to register more than two consecutive wins and went 6-8 in a 14-fight stretch.

That’s until roughly the mid-way point of 2014. Hague realized he wasn’t happy with his win-one, lose-one pattern. To buck that trend, he rededicated himself to the sport and the lifestyle that goes along with it. Now he’s won three straight.

Hague (19-9) has won his past three fights by knockout and hopes he can make it four straight when he challenges Tanner Boser (6-0) for the Unified MMA heavyweight title at Unified MMA 22. The event takes place on Friday at Mirage Banquet Hall in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and is available via online pay-per-view at GFL.tv.

Jeremy Horn: ‘I’ll Be In The Gym Until The Day I Die’- EXCLUSIVE

By: Ryan C. Miller | @ryancmiller1630, BJPenn.com

If you look up Jeremy Horn on the Internet, you’ll likely find that his MMA record is listed as 91-21-5. Yes, that’s 117 total fights. It’s seems like such a ridiculous number, even for someone who has been fighting as long as Horn, which is somewhere around nineteen years. The crazier part is that according to the Nebraska born fighter, that number is wrong and the amount of total fights is probably somewhere around 160ish.

“I started training long before the majority of MMA sanctioning bodies and websites recording them were around,” said Horn when asked about the number.

The 39-year-old fighter is gearing up for his next fight (118, 160 something, who cares) and recently spoke with BJPENN.COM.

Make sure you guys tune into Horn’s fight this Saturday, Mar. 28 at Sugar Creek Showdown 25: Apocalypse. The fights can be streamed online at GFL.tv.

GFL REAL FIGHTS – Sosa VS Bergman on TCN, CSN, DISH, DirecTV, U-Verse & FiOS Beginning March 30

GFL PRESENTS “REAL FIGHTS” ON THE COMCAST NETWORK (TCN), COMCAST SPORTSNET (CSN), DISH, DIRECTV, AT&T U-VERSE AND VERIZON FIOS
GFL PRESENTS “JASON SOSA VS BERGMAN AGUILAR” BEGINNING MARCH 30

March 27, 2015

GFL, The Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet continue their weekly combat sports series, REAL FIGHTS, with world class boxing from Philadelphia as Peltz Boxing and Joe Hand Promotions presents another showstopper!

Jason Sosa of Camden, NJ, riding an eight-fight knockout streak, returns to action when he boxes Bergman Aguilar of Escazu, Costa Rica, in an eight-round junior lightweight fight at the 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia.

The Sosa-Bergman contest, along with an eight-round heavyweight match featuring Joey Dawejko of Philadelphia, headlines a seven-fight card.

Sosa, 26, who knocked out Juan Cruz in his last fight Oct. 18 in Catano, Puerto Rico, is 13-1-3 with 9 K0s. He has been a pro since 2009.
Earlier in 2014, Sosa scored his biggest win when he knocked out Michael Brooks of Long Island, NY, in the ninth round at Bally’s Atlantic City.

Sosa is ranked No. 2 in the United States at 130 pounds by the USBA and No. 31 in the world by the WBC.

“I’m excited to be back fighting in Philadelphia in front of my fans, family and friends who will be crossing the bridge from my hometown of Camden,” said Sosa. “I expect 2015 to be a great year, and I will continue where I left off with my explosive knockouts. I want to thank my manager, Mark Cipparone, of Club 1957 Management, and the entire Rocco’s Collision Team for believing in me and making a lot of things possible. I would like to thank Russell Peltz as well. El Canito is back!”

Sosa has not boxed in Philadelphia since Dec. 8, 2012, when he knocked out Isaac Suarez of Lancaster, PA, in two rounds at Temple University’s McGonigle Hall.

Aguilar, 30, now living in Puerto Rico, is 12-1-1 with 4 K0s. In his last fight April 24 in Panama, Aguilar scored an 11-round decision over previously unbeaten hometown hero Juan Huertas for the interim WBA Fedelatin Title.

A pro since 2008, Aguilar will be making his first start outside Central America.

“I ask for all Costa Rican fans to come out and support me in Philadelphia,” said Aguilar.

Heavyweight prospect Joey Dawejko, who has scored three straight one-round knockouts, takes on Enobong Umohette, of Nigeria, in an eight-round fight.

Dawejko, 24, had a big year in 2014, going 5-0 and beating fringe contender Derric Rossy, of New York, to break onto the heavyweight scene 12 months ago.

A pro since 2009, Dawejko, also known as The Tank, is 13-3-2, 6 K0s. In his last three fights, neither David Williams, of Philadelphia, Yohan Banks, of Redwood City, CA, nor Rayford Johnson, of Longview, TX, were able to survive the first round. Dawejko also defeated then-unbeaten Philadelphia Mark Rideout in 2014.

“This could be the start of a big year for me,” Dawejko said, “so I’m not taking any chances. I’m going away to the mountains to train for this fight. Umohette is a big, strong guy and I need to be prepared. Last year was a rebuilding year for me and I hope to get into the world rankings in 2015.

“I saw Umohette fight on video and I listened to his story. This is a big fight for him, also.”

Umohette (left), 35, now living in Milwaukee, WI, started boxing in 1998. Known as The Nigerian Gentleman, he won his country’s National Amateur Championship in 2005 in the super heavyweight division.

After relocating to Wisconsin, he won that state’s Novice Heavyweight Title in 2007.

Umohette turned pro in 2009 and promptly lost his first fight before going on a nine-fight winning streak which included winning the Wisconsin State Heavyweight Title.

“It will be an honor and a privilege to compete against the highly decorated former World Amateur Champion, Joey Dawejko, in his home state of Pennsylvania, which has a legendary boxing history,” Umohette said. “Dawejko’s very distinguished amateur career and his blazing pro career is testimony to his enormous talent. I look forward to an entertaining bout against The Tank.”

Focused and Family-Driven, Unified MMA 22’s Tim Hague Closes in on His Dream

By Hunter Homistek , Mar 26, 2015, Bleacher Report

Dreams are relative.

What you want to accomplish in life probably isn’t what I want to accomplish in life, and even among individuals following the same career path, what works for John Doe doesn’t necessarily work for Steve Smith.

Example: Tim Hague.

If you followed the UFC at its height in mid- to late 2009, you probably remember him. He was that giant Canadian heavyweight with the sweet sideburns who submitted Pat Barry in one minute and 42 seconds after getting blasted for roughly 1:41 prior.

He’s fighting Friday, March 27, in the main event at Unified MMA 22 in a heavyweight title fight against undefeated rising star Tanner Boser, an event that will stream live online.

MMA veteran Jeremy Horn battles ‘tough’ Tony Lopez this Saturday night at SCS 25

By SteveJuon @angrymarks on Mar 25, 2015

With a professional fight record spanning three decades, the 39-year-old Jeremy Horn is one of the most remarkably durable MMA fighters today, having amassed over 100 total fights (and 90+ wins) in his career to date. On March 28th he goes for his fifth win in a row against Tony “Kryptonite” Lopez.

Jeremy Horn can safely say he’s been everywhere and done everything there is to do in mixed martial arts (MMA).

With over 100 fights in his career thus far (and over 90 wins) he could rightly be called a “crafty veteran” at 39 years old. He’s aging gracefully and winning decisively, taking a victory in each of his last four fights with a first-round submission.

His next opponent will look to put that winning streak to an end.

Tony “Kryptonite” Lopez finished his last two opponents by technical knockout (TKO) and arm-triangle choke, so he won’t be afraid to stand with Horn or follow him to go to the ground, Horn’s bread and butter.

MMAmania.com talked to the longtime fight veteran about his upcoming bout for SCS 25 at the Sugar Creek Casino in Hinton, Oklahoma, along with how he maintains his longevity in a sport where young and hungry lions are always on the prowl.

He’ll go for his fifth straight win defending the SCS light heavyweight title in Hinton, Oklahoma, on Saturday, March 28th at the Sugar Creek Casino. If you can’t attend live the show is also available for $15 on GoFightLive.tv. The complete audio of our interview with Horn is below.
