Brendan Barret’s HITM Promotions put on an 8 bout card at Veteran’s Memorial Park, in Beach Haven, NJ, Saturday night in a tentk.

In the main event super welterweight Thomas “Cornflake” Lamanna, 18-1 (7), of Millville, NJ, defeated Ayi Bruce “Lee” of Ghana, 23-11 (15), over 6 rounds. Referee was David Francisosi. For Lamanna this was personal since Bruce defeated his friend Shamone Alvarez, 21-2, at the time, in Atlantic City, by majority decision.

In the opening round Lamanna completely dominated with a pin point jab backing up from the oncoming Bruce. In the second round Lamanna landed a lead right to the chin of Bruce. He followed this up with a double left hook to the body. In the third round Bruce came back to work the body of Lamanna who continued to box him having the height and reach on Bruce.

In the fourth round Lamanna got on his bicycle and boxed Bruce’s ears off. In the fifth round Lamanna used an effective jab followed with a right uppercut to the body of Bruce. In the sixth and final round Lamanna continued boxing Bruce who couldn’t keep up with the movement of Lamanna. New trainer Chino Rivas said “he looked good and next fight I will bring him down to 147.” Lamanna added “I was fine getting down to 154 and know I will do even better at 147 and get a couple of wins and again look to get on Sho Box and be tested.”

Judges Barnes and Grant 60-54 while Joe Pasquale and DHB 59-55.

Referee was Dave Franciosi.

In the co-feature MMA heavyweight Brendan Barrett, 1-0-1 (1), of Egg Harbor, NJ, scored a pair of knockdowns stopping Satario Holdbrook, 0-2, of Kannapolis, NC, at 1:32 of the second round. In the opening round Barrett had Holdbrook covering up to the point it looked like he would stop him. He finally dropped Holdbrook with a right hand. In the second round Holdbrook fought back until he got hit with a right to the chin dropping him a second time. Referee Ricky Gonzalez wisely called a halt.

Super middleweight Ian Green, 7-0 (5), Paterson, NJ, stopped K Lon Spencer, 4-3 (3), Beaumont, TEX, in 2:16 of the fourth round of a scheduled six. Referee was Franciosi.

Super lightweight O’Shaquie “Cold Water” Foster, 8-0 (5), scored a devastating knockout at 1:03 of the first round over Darius Jackson, 0-2 of Anderson, SC. Jackson should not have approved for this one. Referee Franciosi reached 10 Jackson barely got to his feet.

Middleweight southpaw and former National GG champion Arturo Trujillo, 7-0 (4), of Easton, PA, scored a sensational first round stoppage at 2:37 after scoring two knockdowns. Referee Franciosi wisely halted the bout with Asbury on the canvas. “I don’t like fighting taller guys but was able to get past his jab,” said Trujillo. He is managed by Peter Festa and trained by Julio Lopez and Arturo Trujillo, Sr. Trujillo has plenty of talent and looks like he will be busy with new manager.

Cruiserweight Angel Concepcion, 7-0 (0), Newark, NJ, won a decision over Sidney Outlaw, 0-1 (0), of Philadelphia, over 4 rounds.

In the first two rounds Concepcion boxed well keeping Outlaw on the defense. In the third Outlaw forced the action. In the fourth and final round Outlaw would come in low head first as Concepcion would tie him up. Concepcion boxes well but is a light puncher. Considering their records it’s a wonder the commission approved of this fight except Outlaw had a decent amateur record.

“I have been away for a year and a half and glad to be back,” said Concepcion. He was a NJ GG champion and competed in the 2008 Olympic trials. His dad Angel, Sr. is his trainer.

Judge Barnes had it 40-36, Pasquale and Grant 39-37 as did DHB.

In the opening bout Fanlong Meng, 3-0 (1), of Chifeng, China, won a close decision over Michael Mitchell, 3-6-2 (1), of Paterson, NJ, in a 4. In the first round southpaw Meng was doing well boxing until he got hit with a right hand to the head by Mitchell. In the second round Meng was back to boxing well. In the third round Meng kept Mitchell and third rounds Meng kept Mitchell at bay until a combination by Mitchell rocked him. In the fourth and final round Mitchell was doing too much holding though referee Gonzalez didn’t give him any warnings. Meng was landing the cleaner punches.

Judges Grant and Barnes 40-36. Pasquale 39-37 as did DHB.

Welterweight Dustin “White Tiger” Fleischer, 4-0 (4), of Monmouth, NJ, stopped Ira Frank, 1-1 (1), of WI, at 2:53 of the first round after scoring a pair of knockdowns.

In the opening round Fleischer hurt Frank with a combination. Near the end of the round Fleischer dropped Frank with a right to the chin. Frank got up at 8. He took a beating until referee Gonzalez wisely stopped it.

Ring announcer was David Diamante.
