Weapons 9 Promotions is back and delivered another dose of full contact pro/am Muay Thai to the Tri-State area with “Warriors Cup XXI” worldwide on GFL.tv. Warriors Cup events have quickly carved out a popular niche for themselves on the Eastern seaboard as the place to see great standup fighting. The 12-bout “Warriors Cup XXI” event built on its momentum with a stacked card and delivered another great night of punches, kicks, knees and elbows!

In the main event, with the WBC International Challenge Championship on the line, Deividas Danyla defeated Rami Ibrahim via TKO in the second round. Danyla used his speed advantage in the early going as he was able to bounce on his toes and score with combos while Ibrahim missed with his counters. Danyla connected with low kicks, jabs, hooks and straights as Ibrahim continued to come forward but couldn’t quite catch Danyla with anything of substance. In the second round, Danyla began to open up his striking and connected with a spinning back elbow that caught Ibrahim flush and dropped him to the canvas. The strike came out of nowhere and caught Ibrahim off guard as it connected right on the jaw. Ibrahim tried to get back to his feet but he was wobbled and the ref called off the fight. It was a strong showing by Danyla who proved to be a force in the division with a decisive win against a gritty opponent.

In the fight of the night, John Nofer defeated Amine Ballafrikh via TKO in the fourth round. Ballafrikh found his rhythm early as he scored with leg kicks, and combos up top, but Nofer continued to battle back and started to hurt Ballafrikh in the third round with low kicks and then overhand lefts that shook Ballafrikh near the end of the round. Ballafrikh was now backing up and Nofer was dictating the fight. In the fourth round, Nofer connected with a high kick that dropped Ballafrikh. Once action was resumed Nofer continued to throw bombs and Ballafrikh was done. It was a great fight as both displayed nonstop action from the opening bell to the final bell.

For the 180 lb Warriors Cup Title, Ariel Abreu defeated Sean Woodham via KO in the first round. The taller Woodham used push kicks to keep Abreu away as he walked Abreu down. Abreu used some solid footwork to get off the ropes and connected with a right hand and left hand that sent Woodham back a few steps. Abreu had found his distance and on the next meaningful exchange he threw a left uppercut followed by an overhand right that connected flush and knocked Woodham out cold. Woodham fell face first to the mat. It was several minutes for Woodham to sit up but he did to the applause of the crowd and Abreu. It was a testament to the punching power of Abreu as he stopped a very tough fighter in Woodham with once punch.

New to Muay Thai? If the answer is “yes” then you need to order this iPPV and see what happens when fighters are allowed to use all 8 points of contact instead of only 2 as in Western Boxing. If you love action-packed striking, “Warriors Cup XXI” is your type of event. Watch as these fearless gladiators put it all on the line to earn a victory in one of the most grueling and punishing combat sports in the world.

Tuesday Night Fights is a smash hit with Philly fight fans Next installment set for Tuesday, September 16 at 2300 Arena

September 11, 2014 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Boxing News, Press Release, Upcoming Events 
Philadelphia (September 10, 2014)-On Tuesday night, September 16 at the 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia, Joe Hand Promotions and D & D Management will present the 2nd installment of Tuesday Night Fights.
This show is coming on the heels of a terrific inaugural card that took place on July 29 and played to a sold out crowd at the 2300 Arena.
The concept is to showcase local Philadelphia fighters in pro-am events that will feature the present and future of Philadelphia boxing.
The masterminds behind the series are Joe Hand Sr., Doc Nowicki and Dave Price.
To say Hand is a longtime fixture in boxing would be an understatement as he has been in the business dating back to him being one of the first co-managers of former world champion Joe Frazier.
Hand has managed, promoted and over the past 40 years has been the leading closed circuit and Pay Per View distributor for some of the biggest events all over the world.
He also is the owner of the most popular and successful Boxing Gym in Philadelphia for over two decades.
“We started the series not looking to make money on it, but to help the kids,” said Hand of the grass roots series.
“I see these fighters working hard in the gym everyday and they cant get fights.  They are entitled to a career in boxing.”
Nowicki has been a very successful manager in the Philadelphia area as he guided the careers of Teon Kennedy and Mike Jones to world title opportunities and now has the same world title aspirations for undefeated Super Middleweight Jesse Hart.
“My vision of the series is young, hungry fighters that are exciting and getting opportunities in their hometown in even matched fights,” said Nowicki.
“We plan to keep the shows low budget.  Not in talent but to make it affordable for the average person can come out and enjoy a night at the fights.  We want to create special nights where a father can take his son and it also creates interest in the boxing world in Philadelphia.  It’s great for people to be able to come see a great night of fights.”
Price, who was a passionate fight fan turned manager and now promoter echos the thoughts of Hand and Nowicki.
“I am very excited about the new series where we are able to bring quality fights and fighters back to Philadelphia.  If we get the proper support, we can accomplish that goal.”, said Price.
Slated to appear on the card will be Welterweight Greg Jackson (3-0-1, 1 KO), debuting Jr. Middleweight Donte Wright and debuting Jr. Welterweight Jerome Conquest.
There will be seven amateur bouts prior to the professional card that will be headlined by national Golden Gloves champion Christian Carto and Eric Gordon in a 3-round bout in the 110-pound weight division.
Tickets for this great evening of boxing are $50 for reserved and $30 for general admission and can be purchased online at www.2300arena.com or by calling 215 364 9000.
The 2300 Arena is located at 2300 South Swanson Street (Corner of Swanson & Ritner).

Hometown Takeover Preview

CLICK HERE TO ORDER – http://www.gfl.tv/event/Fight/Boxing/HomeTown-Takeover-Championship-Boxing/2564

It has been over a year since Southeast Washington, D.C. Welterweight prospect, Dusty Hernandez-Harrison, has fought in front of his hometown fans in the Nation’s Capital. His long-awaited return will come on Saturday, September 27, when promoter All In Entertainment presents “Hometown Takeover” at DAR Constitution Hall. Hernandez-Harrison will be headlining the show against Hector Munoz of Albuquerque, NM in a 10-round Welterweight matchup for the WBC Continental Americas Championship.

Hernandez-Harrison (23-0, 12KO’s), the current WBC Youth Welterweight Champion, fought almost exclusively in Washington, D.C. to start his career. Following a stellar performance in his hometown in May 2013, Dusty spent the last 15 months strategically honing his craft on the road against all levels of opposition and in various venues throughout the United States. The 20 year old WBC Youth Welterweight Champion relishes the opportunity to once again display his skills in front of his hometown fans.

“Knowing that I will be fighting in my hometown for another belt has really given me extra motivation in training camp,” Hernandez-Harrison said. “I know Jeff had a detailed plan for me to see as many different looks as possible in and out of the ring and it worked. But it feels great to be fighting at home again,” Dusty added. “I would like to thank the WBC for giving me the opportunity to fight for a Championship in Washington, D.C.”

“I am so happy that my son will be fighting for a title in his hometown,” Buddy Harrison, Hernandez-Harrison’s father and trainer, said. “This is like a dream come true, which I said before in November when Dusty won the Youth Title at Madison Square Garden. Both are dreams come true.”

Hector Munoz (23-13-1, 15KOs), a former WBC USNBC Champion, is a seasoned veteran who faced some of the very best fighters in the Welterweight and Super Welterweight divisions.  This fight has a personal element for Munoz as Hernandez-Harrison defeated his stable mate, Josh Torres, in 2013 at Madison Square Garden to win the WBC Youth Welterweight Championship.

“We are in the gym every day and we will be ready for a war,” said Munoz, who has 15 knockouts in his 23 victories.  “I hope he doesn’t run all night; let’s give the fans what they want. Josh has shared his first hand view of the kid’s strengths and weaknesses, and I plan to expose those weakness in a big way,” added Munoz.

The event, which has been named “Hometown Takeover” by Jeff Fried of All In Entertainment, promises to be a World Class Boxing event. The undercard will be loaded with local rising talent, including undefeated Larry Recio, Mykal Fox, Marquel Johns and south paw Brandon Quarles.

Promoter, All In Entertainment, has an elite reputation for producing high quality events and memorable experiences in Washington, D.C., consistently driving local and nationally recognized sports and entertainment personalities to be in attendance and having an enthusiastic blend of fans from the DMV.

“Dusty comes back to Washington, D.C. following an eight bout National tour that had him on both coasts and many cities in between. That ring education and development and Dusty’s work ethic and training regimen, have prepared him for this Championship Bout in front of his hometown fans,” Fried explained.

All In Entertainment is proud to promote the top Welterweight prospect in the Country as the main event at Hometown Takeover. The event will also honor the number one AAU basketball program in the Country, Team Takeover. “Dusty is the best young Welterweight in the World and Keith Stevens is the Chief Executive of Team Takeover. Both deserve tremendous credit for their unwavering commitment to excellence,” added Fried.

“Some of my friends went through the Team Takeover program and now are fulfilling their dreams in the NBA, My “NBA” is winning a World Championship and I will continue to work hard to reach that goal,” said Dusty.
