Light middleweight southpaw Alex “the Brick City Bullet” Perez, 18-1 (10), of Newark, NJ, scored a pair of knockdowns in stopping Jeremiah Wiggins, 10-3-1 (5), of Newport News, VA, at 1:02 of the 3rd round of a scheduled 8 Main Event.

This was a Andre Kut KEA Boxing Promotion held at the beautiful Birchwood Manor in Whippany, NJ.

In the 1st round Perez landed lead left’s followed by right hooks to the body of Wiggins. Perez was the much busier of the two. In the 2nd round a wicked left hook dropped Wiggins onto his back. A right left combination dropped Wiggins a second time just prior to the bell.

In the 3rd Perez jumped right back on Wiggins who hadn’t quite weathered the storm and in an exchange had Wiggins in trouble when referee Randy Neumann halted the bout at 1:02 of the 3rd round. Wiggins complained to referee Neumann but he had been hurt badly. Jose Rosario, step father of Perez worked the corner.

Heavyweight Juiseppe Cusamano, 7-1 (4), of VA Beach, VA stopped Excell Holmes, 2-4-1 (1), of Buffalo, NY, at 2:41 of the 2nd round of a scheduled 4 rounder. He became a fan favorite over night!

In the first round there was some good inside fighting with Cusamano having an edge. In the 2nd round Cusamano landed a 3-punch combo staring with the right to the chin. A pair of rights from Cusamano and down went Holmes like a ton of bricks. He was up but groggy. After a bunch of punches to body and head Holmes staggered along the ropes forcing referee Randy Neumann to halt the fight. “I want to give thanks to Jesus Christ, my Lord & Savior. If it weren’t for Him I could not have done this. I dedicated this victory to my long time trainer Robert Matney who passed away recently,” said Cusamano.

In the opening bout lightweight Dwayne Holman, Jr., 1-1 (0), of Livingston, NJ, scored 3 knockdowns in defeating Richard Bonds, 0-3 (0), of Newburgh, NY, over 4 rounds.

In the opening round both boxers were swinging wildly trying to get their first win. In the 2nd round Bonds landed some good left hooks to the head. Holman knocked out the mouthpiece of Bonds with a short right. In the 3rd round Holman delivered a left hook to the chin of Bonds dropping him.

In the 4th and final round Holman scored 2 knockdowns. The first Bonds lost his mouthpiece and took a knee. Then a straight right to the chin dropped him again. Referee was Fields.

Judge Kason Cheeks had it 39-34 as did DHB and a pair of 40-33’s by Eugene Grant and Emil Comforte.

Light welter Alex “Popeye” Serna, 1-0 (1), of Queens, NY, stopped Steve Singleton, 0-1 (0), Newark, DE, at 1:21 of the 1st round when referee Fields halted the mismatch.

Welterweight Bobby Gunn, Jr., (3-0 (3), of Hackensack, NJ, scored a pair of knockdowns stopping Chris Strootman, 0-1 (0), Wilmington, DE, at 2:09 of the 1st round.

In the 1st round Stroutman was moving well landing several punches until a lead right on the left temple dropped him. A vicious left hook to the midsection by Guinn felled Strootman forcing referee Neumann to wisely call a halt. Bobby Gunn Sr. worked the corner. Young Gunn is a prospect to keep an eye on.

Light middleweight Connie Viruet, 1-0 (1), of Hoboken, NJ, scored an impressive stoppage of Angel Ford, 0-4 (0), Little Rock, ARK, at 0:58 of the 3rd round in a crowd pleasing fight.

In an action packed 1st round Ford was busier but Viruet delivered the heavier punches. In the 2nd Viruet landed half a dozen punches to the head pinning Viruet in the corner. It was all Viruet who again pinned Ford in another corner delivering numerous punches to the body and head. In the 3rd Ford came out firing until Viruet delivered half a dozen punches to the head causing referee Neumann to wisely call a halt. It was a war with a big following for Viruet.

Matchmaker was Diana Rodriguez.

Ring Announcer was the always popular Historian and NJ Hall of Fame President Henry Hascup.
