On Saturday night in one of the feature bouts for * Gabriel Bracero vs. Dmitriy Salita (*see results linked below), world-rated junior middleweight contender, Charlie Ohta slugged out an exciting eight-round majority decision over Mike Ruiz.

The WBA #11, WBO #11 and IBF #13-rated Ohta pressed the action throughout, stalking Ruiz around the ring and repeatedly landing hard right hands upstairs.

Ruiz was able to counter effectively though, and landed a number of hard shots of his own. While Ruiz had success on the outside, his punches just didn't seem to have much effect on Ohta, who noticeably rocked Ruiz on multiple occasions.

In the end, the judges favored Ohta's aggression awarding him a 79-74, 77-75, 76-76 majority decision. With the win Ohta improved his record to 23-1-1, 15KO's while Ruiz dropped to 17-8, 9KO's .


In his much anticipated pro debut, 18-year-old boxing prodigy Junior "Sugar Boy" Younan wasted little time in notching his first professional victory, stopping Kenneth Schmitz at 1:40 of the very first round.

With his home crowd behind him, the blue-chip prospect displayed blistering speed, jumping all over Schmitz as soon as the bell sounded to start the fight. Younan gave his opponent absolutely no chance to even get into the fight, dropping Schmitz only seconds into the round. Schmitz beat the bell, but just had no answers for Younan's speed and power. With Schmitz taking heavy shots the referee had no choice but to call a halt to the contest. Look for Younan (1-0, 1KO) to be back in action very soon as he hopes to quickly ascend the ranks of the super middleweight division.

In a bout that he seemingly won comfortably, Freeport, Long Island's up-and-coming prospect Patrick "All" Day was forced to settle for a six-round majority draw in his junior middleweight clash with Urmat Ryskeldiev.

Day used his superior boxing ability and ring generalship to ward off the constant pressure of the hard-charging Ryskeldiev. Ryskeldiev was able to score at times, but never had Day in any trouble. It was a tough bout, and one that Day seemed to have in the bag. Unfortunately, two of the three judges didn't see it the same way.

Julie Lederman scored the bout 59-55 for Day while both Robin Taylor and Robert Perez shockingly scored it even at 57-57. It was the first blemish on the otherwise perfect record of Day, who now stands at 5-0-1, 2KO's while Rykeldiev's record stands at 5-3-1, 4KO's.

Promising lightweight prospect and 5-time NY Golden Gloves Champion, Shemuel "The Chosen One" Pagan improved to a perfect 4-0, 1KO with a dazzling and dominant four-round shut-out decision over tough-as-nails Jesus Cintron.

Pagan landed vicious combinations to both the body and head of Cintron round after round, and had his opponent in trouble a number of times. Somehow though, Cintron stayed on his feet and was able to make it to the final bell. Pagan, who is co-promoted by DiBella Entertainment and 50 cent's SMS Promotions will likely be back in action on the SMS promoted card December 20th in Queens, NY.

The Bronx's undefeated Louis Cruz ended his six-round super lightweight bout in devastating fashion, knocking out Bryan Acaba at 1:24 of round number two. With his opponent's back against the ropes, Cruz landed a monstrous left hook disconnecting Acaba from his senses. Rather then drop to the canvas though, Acaba stayed up right, caught in the ropes as Cruz landed another vicious left hook before the referee could jump in and call a halt to the contest. With the impressive victory Cruz improves to 5-0, 3KO's.

In his second professional bout, former #1-rated amateur and national champion Chris "Golden" Galeano fought through a nasty cut to win a unanimous four-round decision over Jamil Gadsden.

The junior middleweight Galeano boxed beautifully behind a steady jab, controlling the action from the outside. In the 2nd round an accidental head butt opened up an extremely deep cut over Galeano's left eye that bled profusely for the rest of the fight. Galeano kept his cool though, and boxed his way to a clear-cut four-round decision, winning by scores of 40-36, 40-36, 39-37. With the win, Galeano gets his pro career back on track, improving to 1-1.

Hard-hitting light heavyweight Joe Smith improved his record to 13-1, 11KO's with a workman like six-round split decision over Lamont Williams 5-3-1, 2KO's. Fighting behind a strong contingent of fans, Smith used his aggression and constant pressure to take the decision over the rugged Williams.
