Marshall Kauffman’s Kings Promotions returns to River Edge in Reading where he has put on a series of shows in the past.  His shows are always competitive with or without the big names.  This time he will have 6 bouts and an exhibition by former contender Harry “Lightning” Yorgey who just scored a first round knockout in VA several weeks ago.

The Main Event will feature unbeaten Grayson Blake, 5-0 (2), of State College, PA, who has fought in Harrisburg, Reading, Bethlehem, Philadelphia and Allentown.  That’s 5 cities in 5 fights with a return to Reading in a 6 round light middleweight bout against hard hitting southpaw Robert “RJ Black Gold” Sockwell, 4-2-1 (4), of East Stroudsburg, PA.

Blake’s biggest win was over previously unbeaten Decarlo Perez, then 5-0-1, a year ago in Philadelphia.  Sockwell had his first 4 fights in AZ compiling a 2-1-1 record.  His last 2 wins have been by knockout with an August bout at Mt. Pocono the latest.  Both boxers are from an area near each other north of Philadelphia and it should produce fireworks.

Cuban Olympian Yordenis Ugas, 11-1 (5), a Cuban Olympian now fighting out of Miami, FL, who lost his last bout in March will oppose Dedrick Bell, 7-15 (5)  who in 22 fights has only faced 4 boxers with losing records.  He hails from Memphis, TN.  This is scheduled for 6 rounds in the light welter division.

Puerto Rico’s Frankie Santos De Alba, 4-1-2 (2), now out of Reading, who hasn’t lost since his debut in PR faces Benjamin Burgos, 1-0 (0), of Mt. Pocono, who won his debut last month in Philadelphia, in a 4 round super featherweight.

Fan favorite Jeremy Stauffer, 7-2-1 (6), of Reading, continues his return against another hard hitting opponent in Elvin “KoKo” Sanchez, 5-2 (4), of  Paterson, NJ, in a 4 round cruiserweight match-up.  Stauffer is a small cruiser while Sanchez who scored a 1st round knockout last month in Philadelphia has always been a cruiser.  Someone will go in this one!

Charles Mack, of Philadelphia will make his debut against David Warren Huffman, 2-8 (1), of Milwaukee, WISC, in a 4 round welterweight match to round out the card.  First fight will be at 7:15pm.

Across the state to Millville, NJ, will mark Thomas “Cornflake” Lamanna’s, 9-0 (5), home debut on his birthday against Mexican Erik Hernandez Perez, 2-2-1 (1), of Batesville, ARK, who drew in his previous fight in September with Daniel Garcia, 10-7-1.  This will be a 6 round light middleweight main event at the NJ Motorsports Park, in Millville, NJ.

“I want to thank Brad Scott and Carolyn Watson of NJ Motorsports for giving this event an opportunity,” said Lamanna.  “Cornflake” is a crowd pleaser hoping to shine Saturday. There will be 5 other bouts featuring Jon Bolden, 5-5 (5), of NY against Dennis Benson, 1-4 (1), of Norfolk, VA, who after stopping a 4-1 boxer in his debut went the distance with 4 unbeaten boxers and is looking to return to the win column.

Light heavyweight Amir Shabazz, 1-0 (0) of Philadelphia takes on Abdellah Smith, 1-3 (1) of Queens, NY.  Light heavy Gilbert Alex Sanchez, 1-1 (1), of Camden, NJ, meets Nasser Abdel Malik, 1-0 (1), of Cary, NC, in a 4.  Middleweight Antoine Douglas, 1-0 (1), of Burke, VA, meets Carlos Lopez, of NY, in his debut.  Moses Molina, 1-1 (1), of Bridgeton, NJ, meets Joshua Nieves, 0-2 (0), of NY, in a super feather 4.
