The extremely tall, technically sound Alantez Fox (17-0-1) defeated Eric Mitchell (23-13-2) via 5th Round DQ. After being outboxed for nearly every second of the fight, in the 5th round Mitchell ignored the count after being dropped by a body shot and attacked Alantez causing the referee to end the end fight. At 6’5 fighting in the middleweight division, Fox is may be a future matchup nightmare for anyone at 160 pounds. The 23-year old Maryland native prospect hasn’t shown much power thus far in his career but with his range and use of height behind a very solid jab Alantez Fox’s future looks bright.
Demond Nicholson (15-1-0) made quick work of his opponent scoring a highlight reel knockout with a left hook right straight combination of Milton Nunez (28-15-1). At only 22, the Maryland-born Nicholson will hopefully continue developing to become another name in the star-studded welterweight division.
The younger brother of Lamont, Anthony Peterson (36-1-0) faced the seemingly outmatched career super bantamweight in Mike Oliver (26-7-1) knocking him out in the first round. Literally the first combination thrown by Peterson ended that fight, leaving the motives of Oliver who didn’t attempt to make count in question. Although only have one loss in his career (a disqualification loss to Brandon Rios in 2010 in a WBA title eliminator), Peterson has yet to have a career defining win warranting the type of attention his other brother has gotten. This victory does nothing as far as improving his career path. Hopefully, we see a better opponent for Anthony Peterson when he returns to the ring in his next fight.
Virginia native Jimmy Lange (39-6-2) scored a late eighth round TKO vs the overmatched Mike Sawyer (6-5-0) in this Light Heavyweight bout. After being dropped in the second round with a straight right, Sawyer went into survival mode spitting out his mouth piece multiple times. Eventually the pressure and punishment from Lange was too much, with the corner stopping the fight near the end of the eighth and final round.
Lennox Allen (20-0-1) a native of Guyana now fighting out of Brooklyn, New York looked sharp in his destruction of the Hungarian Istvan Zeller (24-9-0) in this super middleweight bout. Allen landed a huge right hand, breaking Zeller’s nose in the first round in which he never quite recovered from being waived off by the referee after being dropped at 1:31 in the second round.
In his second professional fight, Canton Miller (2-0-0) defeated Tommy Logan (3-2-0) via 4 round majority decision in the junior lightweight division. Miller, fighting off the D.C. local gym “Head Bangers” scored a beautiful knockdown with a four punch combination. The hometown fighter continued his power punching dropping Tommy Logan again the third round. Logan fought back hard in the final round almost scoring a knockout, but it was too little too late losing a majority decision to Miller
