Southpaw heavyweight Amir Mansour, 20-0 (15), of Wilmington, DE, scored 2 knockdowns and Kelvin Price, 14-2 (6), of Pensacola, FL, couldn’t come out for the 8th. It was a very sloppy fight with an unwilling opponent for Mansour.

At 6:07 Price is trying to use his height to advantage with a straight arm left that referee Brown allows him to get away with as Mansour gets inside and lands several right hooks. In the 3rd the fight is very sloppy with Price tying up Mansour and showing very little athletic skills. Mansour tries man handling him and finally lands a right after turning orthodox and has Price out on his feet with a barrage of punches but Price holds on.

In the 5th a left put Price down. He holds on to last out the round. In the 7th Price tries to come forward but has nothing to offer. He’s hanging onto Mansour hoping he tires. Mansour drops Price with a barrage of punches. Mansour walks to his corner resting on the ropes near exhaustion. Price wisely stays in the corner ending the fight. Brown never took away a point from Price who did more holding than fighting he should have been allowed. It was a very sloppy fight but a win is a win for Mansour.

In the co-feature light heavyweight Lionel “Lonnie B” Thompson, 15-2 (9), Buffalo, NY scored a shot out over Ryan “Irish Outlaw” Coyne, 21-2 (9), of St. Louis, MO, over 10 rounds.

Thompson blocked the jabs from Coyne and countered him to the point Coyne’s forehead was red. Thompson continued to beat Coyne to the punch as Coyne tried to corner him. Referee Page allows Thompson to use a straight arm (football) left to set up Coyne. Thru 6 rounds Thompson handled Coyne easily and had Coyne cut outside his left eye.

At the end of the 8th Coyne landed a good right hook just prior to the belt after taking much punishment in the round. In the 10th and final round Thompson had his hands to his side peppering Coyne with punches. Coyne never stopped coming forward but had no answer for the speed of Thompson. Referee was Page. Judges Barnes had it 99-90 while Pasquale and Hill had it 99-91. DHB 100-90 all for Thompson.

Former 2-time cruiserweight champion Steve “USS” Cunningham, 26-6 (12), of Phila., PA, pitched a shut out over Manuel “El Toro” Quezada, 29-8 (18), of Bakersfield, CA, over 8 rounds. Using an effective jab Cunningham drew blood from the nose of Quezada in the 2nd round.

In the 4th Cunningham rocked Quezada with a left hook just prior to the bell. In the 7th Cunningham ripped body shots to the body of Quezada. The referee was Brown. All 3 judges had it 80-72 as did DHB. Nazim Richardson and Buddy Osborn worked the corner.

Heavyweight David “Nino” Rodriguez, 36-1 (34), El Paso, TX, suffered his first loss when Darnell “Ding-A-Ling” Wilson, 25-17 (21), Miami, FL, knocked him out at 2:59 of the 6th and final round.

Wilson landed a good overhand right in the 1st round only to have Rodriguez back up Wilson with a left hook to the body. In the 2nd rough Wilson rocked Rodriguez with a left hook. Together they exchanged left hooks in a good round by both fighters. In the 3rd Wilson hurt Rodriguez on several occasions. In the 4th Wilson opened up rocking Rodriguez with a left hook. Rodriguez went south several times with no warning from referee Page. Both boxers look winded. It’s been 2 years since Rodriguez last fought after being seriously cut in the streets.

In the 5th Wilson acknowledged a good right to the chin from Rodriguez. An affective jab by Rodriguez was keeping Wilson at bay. In the 6th and final round Wilson rocks Rodriguez with a left hook to the chin. Wilson’s overhand right opened up a bad cut on the outside of Rodriguez’s left eye that continued to run down the side of his face up until a Wilson left hook dropped him. Referee Page waved it off as Rodriguez lay there at 2:59 of the 6th round. Rodriguez was ahead on 2 of the judges scorecards and DHB by a point going into the 6th.

Super middleweight southpaw John Magda, 4-0 (3), of Rutherford, NJ, jabbed and counter punched Jesse Noriega, 2-9 (2), of Lynchburg, VA, for 4 rounds completely dominating Noriega with jabs and countering left hands. In the 5th he stayed in front of Noriega and it was a punch out from both. In the 6th and final round Magda had Noriega all but out. Referee was Brown. Judges Barnes and Pasquale had it 60-54 as did DHB. Hill had it 60-53 all for Magda.

Heavyweight Andrew “Flash” Peurifoy, 0-1 ( ), of Sicklersville, NJ, was blasted out by Aaron “King Kong” Leonard, 1-1-1 (1), of Phila., PA, at 1:50 of the 1st round.

A Leonard right hand dropped Peurifoy. Upon rising Leonard brutally beat him until the referee Page put a stop to it.

In opening bout middleweight Trent Laidler, 0-0-1, Palm Beach, FL, and Vincent Floyd, 0-0-1, Phila., PA, ended in a 4 round draw.

Laidler met Floyd in middle of ring and with the first punch a right hand dropped southpaw Floyd. Laidler tried finishing him off though his corner yelled “take your time” and the rest of the round was not much action. From the 2nd thru the 4th Laidler easily outworks Floyd. His cornerman Stephen “Breadman” Edwards tried encouraging Floyd to no avail. Don Turner was in Laidler’s corner. Referee was Earl Brown. Judge Debra Barnes had it 40-35 Laidler as did DHB, George Hill, had it 38-37 Floyd, and Joe Pasquale 38-38 even.
