Fights Results from the Fitz

Prizefight Promoters continued its consecutive sellout streak on Saturday night at Fitzgeralds Casino & Hotel. Anthony and Lamont Peterson both turned in stellar performances, cruising to unanimous decisions. Going against former WBO bantamweight titlist Alfred Kotey, Anthony won with all three judges scoring it 80-72. Lamont also had an easy time with a tough opponent, Marteze Logan.

DeAndrey Abrons KO3 Kippy Warren... The night started out with another of Prizefights' up and comers in DeAndrey Abrons (11-1 with 7KOs). Abrons squared off with Kippy Warren (17-7-2 with 9 KOs).  Boxingtalk had Warren winning the first round, and Abrons winning the second. At 2:06 seconds of round three, Abrons threw a textbook right hand that crashed into Warren's jaw, Warren was out before he hit the ground.  Warren had to have immediate medical attention as he layed motionless on the canvas for several minutes. Warren had to be removed from the ring on a stretcher, but recieved warm applause from the crowd as he was finally removed from the ring. This knockout merits knockout of the year consideration. 

Ira Terry TKO 2 Richard Dinkins... The second bout of the evening matched up another of Prizefights prospects, Ira Terry (11-0 with 8 KOs) vs Richard Dinkins (10-38-2). Terry made short work out of Dinkins, and with multiple knockdowns in the second round, the referee called a halt to the action. 

Lamont Peterson W8 Marteze Logan...  The  co-main event matched up Lamont Peterson (19-0 with 8 KOs) vs Marteze Logan (24-26 with 6KOs). Lamont had a tough customer in front of him in Logan but cruised to unanimous decision. Peterson showed very fast hands, and a body attack that proved too much for Logan. Peterson showed his ability to slip punches, with Logan swinging at air, and lunging all night.  Peterson UD

Josiah Judah W6 Anthony Bowman... The fourth bout of the evening matched up Josiah "Gorilla" Judah (7-0) against Anthony Bowman (7-24-2). Judah (brother of former junior welterweight and welterweight champion Zab Judah) got the nod from all three judges 58-56, 59-54, 59-54.

Anthony Peterson W8 Alfred Kotey... The main event of the evening matched up Prizefights' Anthony Peterson (21-0 with 16 KOs) against former WBO bantamweight titlist Alfred Kotey (24-14-1 with 13 KOs). Peterson, who like his brother holds a regional title, threw a plethora of quick jabs mixed in with four and five punch combinations all night. Kotey couldn't do anything with Petersons' jab. All three judges had it 80-72, a convincing shutout for Anthony Peterson.
