The fourth session of the series was highlighted by 11 hard fought bouts. All were highly contested as these young boxers showed off their skill and determination in the squared circle.

In the main event, the heavy hitters were on display when in the Finals of the Youth 75kg division, Jake Daoust of Ontario defeated Thomas Johnston of Saskatchewan via TKO in the second round. Daoust showed off a strong all-around game as he was able to tag Johnston with hard counters including left hooks and over hand rights, but also able to get off first with a thumping jab. Daoust was strong and didn’t let his foot off the gas the whole fight as he proved to be too much for the durable Johnston who just couldn’t find his range as he was overcome by the aggression and punching power of Daoust.

In the co-main event, Hassan Omar of Quebec defeated Daniel Ryan of Ontario in a 64kg bout via split decision. Ryan was the aggressor, continually coming forward and trying to connect. Omar did a nice job of being elusive and making Ryan miss, while responding with counter punches. Ryan continued to come forward and showed off his willingness to mix it up, but Omar showed off his defense by evading many of the punches and firing back with punches of his own in a technical match that broke down into a brawl in the final minute of the fight.

The 2015 Junior Canadian National Championships is in full swing with several boxers scoring one-sided wins, TKOs, and back and forth shootouts. The multi-day tournament has been a staple of Junior Canadian boxing for years and brings the whole country of Canada together to celebrate these young boxers fulfilling their dreams inside the squared circle.

10 bouts kicked off this third session. All were highly contested as these young boxers showed off their skill and determination in the squared circle.

In the main event, Tanvir Kelly of Ontario defeated Eitan El Maleh of Quebec via decision 2-1 in the 69kg Youth division. This fight was one of the most competitive bouts of the evening as Kelly and El Maleh went back and forth over 3 competitive rounds. These fighters were throwing some heavy leather at one another and neither fighter backed down. Kelly mixed up his shots well and was able to offset the aggressiveness of El Maleh by using a strong jab and overhand combos. The 1-2 combination paid dividends throughout the fight as it scored for Kelly and kept him away from most of El Maleh’s power punching.

Xavier Gagnon of Quebec defeated Thomas Foster of Nova Scotia via TKO in the second round in a 60kg Youth division bout. The pinpoint accuracy of Gagnon was too much over the course of the two rounds and it finally paid dividends when Gagnon scored the final blows of the fight in a great bout by both men. Gagnon has to be one of the favorites in the 60kg division after this performance.

In other action, Calum Bowie of Ontario defeated Zack Kearley of Ontario via unanimous decision in a 46kg Junior division bout.

In the co-main event, Anthony Cote of Quebec defeated Morwat Shirkan of Alberta via TKO in the third round in a great back and forth scrap.

By Gary “Digital” Williams at ringside

Laurel, MD middleweight prospect Demond “D Best At It” Nicholson scored a first-round technical knockout over Rahman “Genghis Khan” Yusubov Saturday night in the main event of a Keystone Boxing card held in front of a sellout crowd at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. The win was Nicholson’s first since being stopped by Lekan Byfield in the sixth round on November 1 in Chicago, IL. The bout was a battering as Yusubov had no answer for Nicholson’s punishment. Yusubov could not come out for the second round. Nicholson is now 11-1, 11 KO’s. Yusubov falls to 12-20, 10 KO’s.

In the co-feature, Palmer Park, MD featherweight Kevin “K-Smoov” Rivers, Jr. remained undefeated with a third-round TKO of Stephon McIntyre of Atlanta, GA. Rivers used exceptional combinations to batter McIntyre until McIntyre’s corner had the bout stopped at 1:59.

Rivers’s record rises to 11-0, eight KO’s. McIntyre is now 2-5-2.

Forestville, MD super lightweight Myke “The Professor” Fox won the first six-rounder of his career defeating Luis “Yeye” Rodriguez of Carolina, Puerto Rico. The 6’4″ Fox used his height well and doubled and tripled his jab throughout the bout. Fox took some shots from Rodriguez but Fox did enough to win the bout. Fox won by scores of 58-56 (twice) and 59-55.

Fox is now 5-0, one KO while Rodriguez is 3-2, two KO’s.

Lightweight Patrick Harris of Hyattsville, MD remained undefeated with a first-round stoppage of Sean Lockhart of Greenwood, SC. Lockhart was nothing more than a moving punching bag for Harris as the young boxer landed crushing lefts and rights until Lockhart crumpled late in the round. The bout was stopped at 2:59 of the round.

Harris is now 4-0, three KO’s while Lockhart is 5-26-2, two KO’s.

District Heights, MD featherweight Renaldo “Misunderstood” Gaines returned to action with a four-round unanimous decision over Arthur Parker of Lancaster, PA. Gaines competed for the first time since June of 2013 and used a good body attack to dominate a good portion of the action. Parker landed some good right hands of his own but not enough to keep Gaines at bay. Gaines won by scores of 40-36 (twice) and 39-37.

Gaines is now 5-2, one KO. Parker is 1-13-1, one KO.

The only all-local contest was the wildest bout of the night. Welterweight Gerome Quigley of Montgomery Village, MD scored a second-round TKO over Norman “The Shadow” Allen of Laurel, MD but it was not easy. In the first round, Quigley looked to be in control of the bout. However, Quigley walked right into an Allen counter right hand and was dropped. However, Quigley went back to work and knocked down Allen three times with hard right hands. There is no three-knockdown rule in DC, so Allen lasted until the second round.

Allen did not last very long in the second, however. Just 19 seconds into the second, Quigley landed another crushing right hand that sent Allen to the canvas for the final time. The bout was immediately stopped. Quigley is now 6-0, five KO’s. Allen dropped to 6-12, three KO’s.

Super bantamweight “Monster” Marq Johns of Fort Washington, MD won a tough four-round unanimous decision over a very game Jaxel Marrero of Bayamon, Puerto Rico. Marrero initiated the action in the first round, landing some solid right hands. Johns came back in the second using a strong left jab to set up his vicious overhand right. Eventually, Marrero’s left eye started to close. Marrero lost two points for holding and lost by identical scores of 39-35. Johns is now 5-0-1, four KO’s. Marrero is 1-4-1.

The night was a tough one early for local boxers as two young Beltway Boxers were stopped in their contests. Super featherweight Tyrone “Showtime” Wright of DC was stopped in the first round by Thomas “Gunna Man” Mattice of Cleveland, OH. Mattice walked through Wright’s shots to land many of his own. With seconds remaining in the round, Mattice landed a crisp, short right hand that dropped Wright in the middle of the ring. Wright couldn’t beat referee Joe Cooper’s count and the bout was stopped. Wright is now 2-2 while Mattice is 2-0, two KO’s.

Maurice “Moe” Adams, Jr. of DC was stopped in a bantamweight battle by Gabriel “Mr. G” Braxton of Atlanta in the third round of the opening bout on the card. Adams got off to a good start in the first, landing hard shots to Braxton’s body. However, Braxton came back and went toe-to-toe with Adams and ended up cutting Adams along the right side of his face.

By the third round, Braxton had worn down Adams to the point where he couldn’t defend himself. Adams’s corner stopped the bout at 1:36. Adams’s record evens at 1-1 while Braxton is now 2-7, one KO.

Keystone Boxing, led by Gene Molovinsky, promoted the card. Ross Molovinsky was the matchmaker. Henry “Discombobulating “Jones served as ring announcer.

Hard hitting MMA action returned as GPG presented “Global Proving Ground 17″ from the GPG Event Center in Pennsauken, New Jersey on the GFL Combat Sports Network. GPG has quickly established itself as a rising combat sports promotion on the East Coast and this event further cemented their credibility within the region.

In the main event, Bellator vet Sam Oropeza (12-2) defeated another Bellator vet in Timothy Woods (7-5) via KO due to a slam in the first round. In the first round, the southpaw Oropeza went for a flying knee that was partially caught by Woods. Oropeza was able to close the distance with the move, though and once in the clinch, where he wrestled for control, got behind Woods and slammed him to the ground. Woods recovered and got up and Oropeza got the back of Woods and Woods, trying to shake Oropeza off his back, slammed himself and Oropeza into the mat with Woods getting the worst of it as he drove his own head into the mat where the impact knocked Woods out. Woods lay motionless for minutes and it was a scary sight, but he recovered enough to get to his fee and received a round of applause for his efforts. The bout received a lot of hype leading up to it because of Oropeza’s decision to leave Bellator for bigger and better fights and was risking a lot in this fight against the durable and dangerous Woods. With the win, Oropeza makes it 8 wins in a row.

In the co-main event, Abdula Dadaev (5-2) defeated Louis Johnson (3-2) via unanimous decision with scores of 30-27 across the board. Dadaev dominated the fight with his wrestling and grappling as he was able to get Johnson on the mat and control the action in most instances and went for numerous submissions, mostly chokes, to finish the fight. Johnson showed off a great scramble game where he would explode from the bottom and end up on top and look to score with ground and pound, but Dadaev would use the change in position to work for kneebars and leg locks from the bottom. In the second round, Dadaev once again got the back of Johnson and went for rear naked chokes over and over again as Johnson defended, but didn’t do much else. The wrestling and control of Dadaev was too much for Johnson to overcome. In the third round, it was more of the same as Dadaev got the back of Johnson once again, and continued to rack up the riding time while keeping Johnson off of his feet and away from throwing his powerful strikes. Johnson used solid wrist control defense that kept Dadaev from getting the fight ending submission, but Dadaev was clearly the victor as he dominated the ground by being in dominant position 90% of the fight. Both fighters gave their all and Johnson should be commended for his defense, but in the end, Dadaev had racked up too many points due to controlling the action and pace of the fight.

In the main event, for the 155 lb Invicta Contract, Felicia Spencer (5-1) defeated Jessica Eve Richer (3-1) via TKO in the second round to win the automatic contract for Invicta FC. In the opening round, Richer controlled the pace early on in a back and forth grappling bout as she was on top for half of the round. Spencer was active from the bottom the whole time though and snuck out the back door and got the mount before Richer turned the tide again and went for a RNC. Spencer got her back and Richer lost the choke hold, but remained in mount. Spencer got back to guard and as Richer postured up to score with punches, Spencer was able to connect with several hard up kicks to the face of Richer. It was a great, action packed first round from these two gladiators. In the second round, Spencer landed low kicks while Richer responded with overhand rights. Spencer then began to find her distance and connected with a pair of high kicks followed by a straight right hand that dropped Richer against the cage. Richer powered back up but Spencer landed two more pinpoint right hands. Richer fell to the canvas where Spencer continued to score with ground and pound until the ref finally stopped the fight. Both women displayed a ton of heart inside the cage and showed why they were the main event.

In the co-main event, for the Tuff-N-Uff 135 lb Championship, Joey Ruquet (7-0) defeated Corey Conway (4-0) via TKO in the second round. In the first round, Conway scored with solid leg kicks in the standup, but Ruquet quickly got the fight to the mat where he tried to score with punches as Conway tried to grab a leglock. The fight went back to the feet and both fighters traded shots. Conway ended up on the ground with Ruquet trying to score with big punched while standing as the round ended. In the second, Ruquet scored with a quick left hook and overhand right that dropped Conway. Ruquet pounced on Conway on the ground and landed several more punches to finish the fight in explosive fashion.

In other action, for the 145 lb Invicta Contract, Amber Leibrock (3-1) defeated Paola Ramirez (4-1) via unanimous decision to win not only the fight but also punches her ticket into Invicta with the victory. Leibrock used her striking advantage to score a one-sided one. Leibrock was taller and used that reach advantage to potshot Ramirez from the outside as she racked up point after point. Ramirez tried to close the distance on several occasions and get the fight to the mat, but Leibrock was able to push off the takedown attempts of Ramirez and get back to scoring with her striking. The fight went to the ground in the second, but even from the bottom, Leibrock was going for an armbar and staying the aggressor. Leibrock was the aggressor and combined with her pinpoint accuracy, she won the fight.

Parker used his dirty boxing to negate the offense of Ramm. Parker got a nice takedown bit Ramm went to work from his back using a rubber guard trying to lock on a choke. Ramm had Parker tied up on the ground until both fighters stood back up and Parker went back to the clinch against the cage. It was a very grappling intensive first round. In the second, it was more of the same as both men worked their different grappling games. Parker got the fight to the ground again halfway through the round and Ramm went back to attacking the neck and arms of Parker both from the bottom and the mount as he was active in trying to finish the fight. Ramm finished the fight by landing punches from the mount then grabbing an armbar to get the tapout.

In the co-main event, Mike Jasper (8-2) defeated Justin Vazquez (4-7) via RNC in the first round. Vazquez quickly went for a takedown that was stuffed by Jasper. They went to the mat together and Jasper got the back of Vazquez where he sunk in the fight ending rear naked choke.

In other action, Sarah D’Alelio (7-6) defeated Christina Marks (5-7) via RNC in the first round. D’Alelio quickly got the fight to the mat showing her wrestling edge. On the ground, D’Alelio worked from side control and tried to create space to throw punches while Marks did a nice job of negating any offense by D’Alelio.
