Chazz Witherspoon returned after over 2 years in a very exciting fight with the right opponent to give him the work he needed before Witherspoon ended it at 1:59 of the 8th and final round.

Chazz Witherspoon’s Silver Spoon Promotions made their debut at the Riverwinds Community Center, in West Deptford, NJ, Saturday night.

Heavyweight Chazz “The Gentleman” Witherspoon, 31-3 (23), of Mt. Royal, NJ, put on a fine performance in his return stopping Tyyab Beale, 9-5-1 (3), of Newark, NJ, before a good and vocal crowd.

In the opening round Witherspoon’s punches seemed more on the money in a close round. In the 2nd round Witherspoon right’s rocked Beale who ended the round with a solid left hook to the head. In the 3rd round Witherspoon landed a 3 punch combination driving Beale to the ropes. His jab set up Beale followed by solid right hands. Beale’s left hook was his most effective punch during the round. Witherspoon ended the round having Beale in trouble.

In the 4th round a Witherspoon right hand to the head dropped Beale in a neutral corner. Beale got up fighting mad. Both fighters let it all hang out with Witherspoon rocking Beale who came back each time. This round had the fans off their seats. In the 5th round they picked up where they left off with good exchanges as Witherspoon would land a lead right and Beale come back with a left hook throughout the round.

In the 6th round Witherspoon landed a right cross to the chin of Beale making his knees buckle. Beale starts slowing down as he backs into the ropes as Witherspoon starting to wear him down. In the 7th round Beale comes out dancing for the first time in the fight until a lead right by Witherspoon landed on his chin. Beale once again was back pedaling to get through the round. In the 8th and final round a solid right from Witherspoon had Beale’s eye’s rolling back as he was driven into the ropes.

Witherspoon immediately jumped on him landing several solid rights having him out on his feet as referee Alan Huggins wisely stepped in stopping the fight. The son of former heavyweight champion “Terrible” Tim Witherspoon, Tim “Terrible II” Witherspoon, Jr., 10-5-1 (2), of Philadelphia was upset by Jeff Lentz, 4-0 (1), of Lanoka, Harbor, NJ, who put on a steady attack over 6 rounds in a welterweight match-up.

In the 1st round the southpaw Lentz landed 4 straight punches with Witherspoon keeping his hands up in defense then stuck out his tongue. Lentz came back with 4 more punches. In the 2nd round Witherspoon landed a hard right to the head forcing Lentz to hold on. Lentz kept switching back and forth to orthodox but Witherspoon’s much more experience didn’t seem effected by this. Lentz ended the round with a flurry. In the 3rd round Lentz forced the action looking like the stronger of the two. In the 4th Witherspoon started going to the body with lead right hands. Lentz came back with half a dozen unanswered punches. Lentz ended the round with a 4 punch combo at the bell.

In the 5th round Lentz continued being the busier of the two but may have slowed down by the end of the round being in his first 6 rounder. In the 6th and final round a Witherspoon right hand rocked Lentz. Even though tired, Lentz gave a gutsy finish. Harvey Dock was the referee.

All 3 judges had it 59-55 as did DHB for Lentz.

In the opening bout the grandson of “Jersey” Joe Walcott, Luis Cream, 3-1 (0), of Camden, NJ, lost to Malik “The Freaky Dreaky” Jackson, 1-3-3 (0), of Newark, NJ, in a 4 round light middleweight match-up.

In the first round it was all Jackson with Cream doing the “rope-a-dope” for the most part. In the 2nd round it was more of the same with a little offense from Cream. In the 3rd round Jackson kept up the pressure looking for his first win. He seemed to ice it in the 4th round.

All 3 judges had it 40-36 as did DHB for Jackson. Dock was the referee.

Welterweight Kevin Womack, Jr., 4-5-2 (2), of Baltimore, MD, battled to a draw with Anthony Prescott, 3-3-2 (1), of Cherry Hill, NJ, over 4 rounds.

Womack used his longer reach to offset the oncoming Prescott in the opening round. In the 2nd round Prescott landed 4 unanswered punches forcing Womack to grab and hold. In the 3rd round Prescott suffered a bloody nose but came back to land a hard right to the head of Womack. In the 4th round both fighters mixed it up well up to the closing bell in an action packed last round. Huggins was the referee.

Tony Perez 40-36 for Womack, Jon Stewart 39-37 for Prescott and Barbara Perez 38-38 as did DHB.

Middleweight Matthew “Chico” Gonzalez, 1-0 (0), of Vineland, NJ, won a split decision over Portugal’s Rafael Machado, 0-2 (0), of Philadelphia over 4 rounds. In an action packed 1st round Gonzalez seemed to get the better of Machado. In the 2nd round Machado turned it around landing the heavier punches and continued doing the same in the 3rd round. In the 4th round Machado pinned Gonzalez in the corner until Gonzalez spun out and put up some offense of his own that may have been too little too late. Huggins was the referee.

T. Perez 40-36 and B. Perez 39-37 for Gonzalez Stewart 39-37 Machado and DHB 38-38.

Welterweight southpaw, Nick Valliere, 1-0 (1), of Forked River, NJ, stopped Jamil Gadsden, 0-6 (0), of Brighton, NJ, at 2:39 of the 4th round.

In the opening round the southpaw Valliere landed several overhand lefts to the chin of Gadson. In the 2nd and 3rd rounds Valliere continued landing the harder punches keeping Gadsen on the ropes. In the 4th Valliere had Gadsen hurt halfway through the round but just when Gadsen looked like he was finished he fought back. Valliere came back with a flurry of punches forcing referee Dock to wave it off.

Sparta Combat League returned on GFL with “SummerBrawl”, a stacked MMA and kickboxing card from the Grizzly Rose in Denver, Colorado. This event was full speed from bell to bell as these pros and amateurs battled in the cage.

In the main event, in a kickboxing bout, Chris Trammel defeated Brian Scraper via unanimous decision. In the early going, the shorter Trammel scored on the inside with straights and hooks while Scraper was able to land on the outside with kicks. Both men fired shots at one another the whole fight and scored with thundering strikes. Trammel seemed to score in barrages while Scraper was more tactical and landed one punch or kick at a time. In the end, it was the volume of punches landed by Trammel that won him the fight.

In the co-main event, Steve Paprocki (4-1) defeated Erick Kapp (1-3) via guillotine choke in the first round to retain the SCL Heavyweight Title. Kapp used his height advantage early by throwing kicks to keep Paprocki at a distance, but that only lasted so long as Paprocki scored with an overhand right that dropped Kapp. On the ground, Paprocki scored with some huge punches in Kapp’s guard. Kapp was able to scramble back to his knees where Paprocki locked on a guillotine and fell back to the mat. Kapp tapped out almost immediately.

Alonso Garcia defeated Joe Miles via split decision after three tough rounds. Garcia worked several takedowns into the fight, including trip takedowns and once on the ground, Garcia scored with punches from the top. Garcia displayed excellent top control and won the battle in the trenches. Miles was a game opponent and scored with strikes in the standup and knees from close range, but Garcia’s wrestling was the difference.

Sparta Combat League brought down the house once again as they have quickly grabbed a chokehold on Mountain West MMA and this show continued in that tradition. Order “SummerBrawl”, and watch anytime on video on demand only on GFL.

Showdown Fights, the top MMA organization in Utah, presented another night of exciting fights with “SHOWDOWN FIGHTS 14″ on GFL.tv. The premier event is highlighted by a Heavyweight Title fight on an 11-bout card that featured 8 finishes with all of the action coming from the UCCU Center in Orem, Utah. Utah MMA has flown under the radar for over a decade, but Showdown Fights has proven to be in a class of its own for MMA in the Mountain West.

In the main event, with the Showdown Heavyweight Title on the line, Jan Jorgensen (6-0) defeated Ben Fuimaono (13-9-1) via arm triangle choke in the first round to win the inaugural heavyweight title. Fuimaono looked to use his speed advantage in the early going by throwing combos and staying out of the range from Jorgensen. Jorgensen blocked a leg kick and countered with a right hand that dropped Fuimaono. Jorgensen followed Fuimaono to the mat where he locked on an arm triangle.

In a featherweight bout, Clay Collard (13-4) defeated Nick Compton (9-4) via unanimous decision. Collard is the former Showdown Fights Lightweight Champion but dropped down to featherweight to fight at his natural weight and it showed. Collard dominated the action with his wrestling and switched levels when he needed to getting takedowns throughout the fight. Collard is a beast at 145 lb and will be hard to stop because of his ability to win the fight at all levels; wrestling, grappling and striking. Look for Collard to be in another Showdown title fight sooner than later, this time at featherweight.

In a women’s bantamweight bout, DeAnna Bennett (4-0) defeated TUF vet Colleen Schneider (5-4) via rear naked choke in the first round. Bennett remains undefeated with 3 first round finishes and has proven herself to be a top notch fighter. Bennett was strong in the striking game and when it went to the mat, it was to her advantage as well as she got the back of Schneider and was able to sink in the choke, getting the tapout against a proven opponent in a quick but action-packed shootout.

In other action, David Putvin and Craig Ross picked up submission wins, while Seantee Williams and Eti Palu won their respective bouts via TKO.

Cage Fury Fighting Championships returned to GFL.tv with championship level MMA from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with “CFFC 37″. Pro MMA fighters from around the East Coast competed on this stacked 13-bout card that featured 6 stoppages. The action was fast and furious as these gladiators stepped into the cage and went to battle from the opening bell. CFFC has expanded its stranglehold on Northeast MMA as they continue to pump out one blockbuster show after another.

In the main event, with the CFFC Heavyweight Title on the line, Champion Zu “The 8th Wonder” Anyanwu (7-2) retained his belt as he defeated Keith “Bad News” Bell (5-4-1) via KO in the first round. What made the win sweeter for Anyanwu was that he defeated an opponent in Bell who has previously knocked Anyanwu out in 12 seconds with a high kick back in 2013. Bell started off the match with leg kicks finding his distance as Anyanwu kept his hands high and measured the rhythm of Bell. Bell felt more comfortable with his striking and threw a looping overhand right that was countered by a straight right from Anyanwu that connected flush on the jaw. Bell fell to the canvas where Anyanwu followed up with punches and hammer fists, knocking Bell out. It was a spectacular win for Anyanwu who held on to his title and got a bit of revenge all in one fight.

In the co-main event, Bill “Mr. Perfect” Algeo (6-1) defeated Mike “Popezilla” Pope (2-1) via rear naked choke in the first round. Pope got a quick takedown but Algeo popped back up to his feet as the two struggled against the cage for positional dominance. Pope connected with a nice double leg takedown that put Algeo on his back in the center of the cage. Pope looked like he was setting up a north-south choke, but Algeo scrambled to his feet and got a waist lock takedown of his own and began to land punches from behind Pope. Algeo then went for the choke and locked in a body triangle as Pope was forced to tap out.

Julio Rosario (4-4) defeated Brandon Inskeep (5-9) via arm triangle in the second round. Rosario was out of the cage for over a year but didn’t show any signs of ring rust as his striking looked great and was matched by his ground game. Rosario had a very active guard as he was constantly looking for armbars and triangles. Near the end of the second round, Rosario worked on top from the half guard of Inskeep. Rosario grabbed an arm triangle, but had to fight his way out of the half guard, which he did. Once Rosario moved to the same side as the choke he was applying, that was it as Inskeep was forced to tapout before he went unconscious in a tremendous fight from both men.

Be sure to catch all of the action anytime on VOD as “CFFC 37″ throws down the gauntlet on pay-per-view exclusively at GFL.tv.

Reading To Rumble 2 Review

DeAlba wins by knockout

By Ryan Remp of the Reading Eagle

In his second fight at Santander Arena, and sixth career bout in the Reading area, local super featherweight sensation Frank DeAlba didn’t need eight rounds to make good on his knockout prediction against Mexico’s Pablo Batres.

As it turned out, he didn’t even need six.

With an energetic crowd of 5,800 fans cheering his every move, the 26-year-old DeAlba (13-1-2, 5 KOs) scored a fifth-round TKO Saturday to win the Universal Boxing Federation’s All-America Super Featherweight title in the main event at Reading Rumble 2, presented by Kings Boxing.

Said DeAlba after the fight, “He was guarding his body really well, so I was just waiting for an opening.”

He found that opening 1:55 into the fifth, landing a viscious, left-handed body blow that sent Batres to the canvas.

The fight was called after Batres (7-10-1) failed to get up before the referee finished his count.

“It feels great right now,” said DeAlba, who was greeted by a rowdy herd of fans that stuck around to congratulate him after exiting the ring. “I’m just blessed and humbled to be in this position.”

DeAlba, unbeaten in his last 15 fights and winner of the last 11, snapped a three-bout winning streak for Batres, who is 7-3-1 in Mexico, but 0-7 on U.S. soil.

Two other Reading fighters, welterweight Pat Kehoe and junior middleweight Miguel Martinez, also fought Saturday in undercard bouts.

The 27-year-old Kehoe (1-1) suffered his first loss in a split decision against Harrisburg’s Danny Lugo, and the 23-year-old Martinez (1-1) lost by way of unanimous decision to Alex Sanchez of Philadelphia.

So what’s next for DeAlba?

There’s nothing definite on the upcoming calendar yet, but he’s looking forward to extending his unbeaten streak to 16 next time out.

Said DeAlba of his immediate future, “Whatever Marshall (Kauffman) has for me next, I’ll be ready to fight.”

PowerPlay Promotions presented World Championship Kickboxing with “PowerPlay 24 – Parr VS Smith”, at the famous Melbourne Pavilion in Melbourne, Australia. The 13-bout full rules Muay Thai card was anchored by a long-awaited title fight that lived up to the hype and more.

In the main event, for the WKA World Title, Toby Smith defeated John Wayne Parr via TKO in the third round. The younger Smith showed he was a great pressure fighter as he attacked Parr from the opening round showing that he would not be intimidated. In the first, Smith and Parr traded punches while Parr also showed off his vintage kick catch and put Smith on the mat to try and slow down the younger gladiator’s momentum. It didn’t work. The taller Smith also connected with front kicks, high kicks and low kicks while Parr worked his boxing game. In the second, both men used their clinch came to land knees as the fans in attendance cheered every strike thrown from the two. In the third, Smith scored with huge body kicks as Parr responded with rapid fire overhand rights. More clinch work ensued with Smith throwing Parr down to the canvas and getting stronger as the fight wore on. Smith trapped Parr in the corner and landed a crushing elbow. Smith added another elbow and Parr fired back with elbows of his own in this epic battle. Another body kick by Smith. The end of the fight came when Smith connected with a huge upward left elbow that caught Parr flush on the left eye that broke his orbital bone and sent him down to the mat. Parr was not knocked out, but he knew his body could take no more and stayed put on the ground. It was an unbelievable win for Smith who notched the biggest victory of his career and also brought home a new belt. This was one of the best fights in any combat sport of 2014 bar none.

In the co-main event, Brent Dames defeated Simon Coutsouvellis via KO in the first round. These two went at it right away with Coutsouvellis scoring from the outside with punches while Dames closed the distance and connected with knees from the clinch. Dames scored with an overhand right to the jaw of Coutsouvellis while Coutsouvellis countered with knees and low kicks. Seconds later, Dames connected once again with an overhand right that dropped Coutsouvellis like a ton of bricks. The fight was over and Dames secured a quality win over a dangerous opponent.

In other action, Moulay Bekkali defeated Steve Baldachinno via Unanimous Decision. Bekkali was in charge from the get-go as he scored with a multitude of strikes and was one step quicker than Baldachinno. Bekkali is a blue chip prospect and defeated an experienced opponent and gained some much needed battle experience against a game opponent. Look for big things from Bekkali in the future.

Andre Meunier defeated Josh Heta via TKO. Meunier dropped Heta early with a nice one-two combo then kept up the attack as he landed a nice cross elbow and dropped a few more huge overhand rights to Heta who was out on his feet. Meunier showed off devastating power as put the the New Zealand fighter on Easy Street which is an extremely hard thing to do to the fighters from NZ who are known for their granite chins.

If you love nonstop, full-throttle striking, then “PowerPlay 24 – Parr VS Smith” is must-see TV. Watch as these brave warriors display the science of the eight limbs and use punches, kicks, knees and elbows all the way from Australia as PowerPlay Promotions returns to GFL.

Cage Fury Fighting Championships returned to GFL.tv with championship level MMA from Morristown, New Jersey with “CFFC 36″. Pro MMA fighters from around the East Coast competed on this stacked 10-bout card that featured 5 stoppages. CFFC has expanded its stranglehold on Northeast MMA as they continue to pump out one blockbuster show after another.

In the main event, former Bellator Welterweight Champion Lyman Good (16-3) defeated Matt Secor (4-2) via KO in the first round. Secor tried to work a takedown as he got Good’s back and tied up one of Good’s legs with his own, but Good had a strong base and stayed on his feet. Good changed the tide a bit when he landed knees from the clinch as Secor was still intent on staying close to Good. Secor dove in for another takedown attempt and got Good on the ground but it gave Good the opportunity to land with elbows to the ribs of Secor. Both men returned to their feet where Good scored with two huge over hand rights that dropped Secor. Good followed up on the ground with several hard elbows that put Secor out. It was a strong showing for Good who once again looks to make some noise in the 170 lb division.

In the co-main event in a featherweight battle, Bellator vet Kenny Foster (11-8) defeated TUF vet Andy Main (8-2-1) via split decision. Main hadn’t lost since 2010 and it was the foot movement and striking of the southpaw Foster that proved to be the difference. Foster was the shorter, stockier fighter and pushed the pace for the three rounds as he was the aggressor for most of the fight and kept it a striking bout for most of the fight which was to his advantage. Foster was able to open up a few cuts on the face of Main and came to fight and showed it for three full rounds.

Manny Walo (6-1-1) defeated Diego Peclat (3-6-1) via split decision in big part to Walo’s ability to score takedowns amongst the flurries by both men that were peppered in the three rounds.

Darren Mima (5-1) defeated Bellator vet Claudio Ledesma (9-5) via unanimous decision. Mima exhibited a huge strength advantage that helped him dominate the always game Ledesma. Mima stuffed several takedown attempts from Ledesma and scored from the outside with strikes for the full fight. Mima stayed in dominant positions throughout the fight and notched a huge win against the Bellator vet.

Be sure to catch all of the action anytime on VOD as “CFFC 36″ throws down the gauntlet on pay-per-view exclusively at GFL.tv.
