By Ken Hissner and David Ruff at ringside for Doghouse Boxing. All good things sometimes have to come to an end.  Friday night before a packed house at the Valencia Ballroom in York, PA, Carney “Beeper” Bowman, 16-1 (7), lost for the first time by split decision to Ramesi Gil, 8-4-5 (5), of Santo Domingo, DR, over 6 rounds in the lightweight division.  A&D Promotions had their scheduled 5 bouts cut to 3 following a 6 bout amateur show but the fans enjoyed every minute of it.   Julio Alvarez was the promoter and Chuck Bayley the matchmaker.

Bowman has to learn boxing is not a part time business.  It had been 20 months since his last fight and per his trainer Julio Alvarez, “Carney was sick this morning.”   Bowman’s father/ass’t trainer Carney, Sr. kept yelling to his son to “get up on your toes” but there didn’t seem to be the normal energy in his son Friday night.  He is not a puncher but a very good boxer and he just couldn’t out maneuver his opponent.  Gil kept to the body all night but caused a cut on Bowman’s right eye brow in the 5th round.  Gary Rosato was the referee.  Scores were 58-56 John Grabowski for Bowman, 58-56 John Castellani and 59-55 Dave Braswell both for Gil.   DHB writer Ken Hissner had it 57-57 a draw while Dave Ruff had it 58-56 for Gil.   Bowman had little to say outside of acknowledging he was not himself physically.  His fans surrounded him and seem to be sticking by him.

In a competitive 4 round light welterweight bout York’s Jesus Saucedo, 4-0-1 (1), knew he was in a fight but took over in the 2nd round with body shots from both hands.  Much taller than his opponent Alberto Manukyan, 0-1 (0), making his debut.  Saucedo took over in the 2nd round cutting the right eyebrow of his opponent in the 3rd round.  In the final round Saucedo had to chase his opponent down who was looking to go the distance and protect the cut. Rosato was the referee.  

Castellani and Grabowski had it 40-36 while Braswell had it 39-37.  DHB had it 40-36 for the winner Saucedo.

The opening bout had Harrisburg, PA, featherweight Josh “Boutit” Bowles, 5-0 (0), looking like the amateur star of the past in probably showing his best performance easily handling Joshua Arocho, 1-6-2, of Vineland, NJ, over 4 rounds.  To his credit Arocho was trying at all times and had his best round in the 4th though it didn’t seem he pulled it out.  Bowle’s trainer Darryl Martin, a former PA state champion seemed pleased with his boxer’s performance as did Bowles.  “I felt good in there,” said Bowles.  At 26 he has had no problem keeping the weight under 126.  

Rosato was the referee.  Grabowski had it 39-37 while Braswell and Castellani along with DHB had it a shutout 40-36 for Bowles.  He is a good prospect who had plenty of fans and family at ringside.  The ring announcer was Rick Stepina.  This show was originally scheduled in July with York’s Stevie Weimer, 8-0 (2) in the main event.  Former York lightweight Eric Nemo walked both Saucedo and Bowman to the ring.  Nemo finished his career (for now) in 2010 at 10-1-1 (4) only losing to then future world champion Juan Manuel Lopez in 2005.  Thanks to people like the promoter Julio Alvarez, he has kept boxing alive in York.  Boxing returned to York in 2008 after a 12 year absence and have had 8 shows in the last 4 years of which 5 have been at the Valencia Ballroom with 3 shows outdoors.  Bowman has been in the main event in 5 of those 8 shows including the 2008 return to York.
