Although his career has now spanned only four fights, former Olympic silver medalist Richard Torrez Jr. (4-0, 4 KOs) has had little to no trouble with the level of competition he’s faced at this stage. 

Armed with a lethal right hand and dogged determination, Torrez bull rushed Ahmed Hefny (13-3, 5 KOs), leaving his man on the seat of his pants in the first round. Ostensibly smelling blood at this point, Torrez pushed the pace in the second. His need to up his aggression in the second saw Hefny hit the deck in the deck. 

Refusing to allow his man to continue much longer, the former Olympian violently ended the night of his man in the third, stopping him dead in his tracks. 

A change of pace was much needed for the New York crowd in Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater as the prior bout left the fans listless.

Much like his Olympic counterparts, Duke Ragan has continued to ask for biggest, baddest, and best fighters around. Ultimately, the current featherweight prospect was granted his wish earlier tonight. 

To kick off his night, the former Olympic silver medalist easily outboxed Luis Lebron. But in spite of building an early lead on the judges scorecards, Lebron was unperturbed with his man’s offensive output. As the latter rounds crept closer, the fringe contender increased his output and work rate, resulting in closer then expected rounds between them. 

In an effort to slow Lebron down, Rogan repeatedly spat out his mouthpiece, seemingly to buy more time. In the end, his timely boxing and underhanded tricks worked to his advantage as he walked away with a fairly wide unanimous decision defeat. The three judges scoring ringside turned in cards of 77-75, 78-74, 79-73, much to the chagrin of the New York crowd.

Just a few minutes before Rogan angered the crowd, they were treated to a mouthwatering all-action slugfest.  

The boxing world became fixated to their television sets from the moment Nico Ali Walsh (7-0, 5 KOs) turned pro. With his connection to the late great Muhammad Ali, he immediately began carrying the burden of his grandfather. Through seven pro fights, things couldn't be scripted any better. 

For his latest trip to the ring, the middleweight prospect took on journeymen Billy Wagner (5-3, 1 KO). Filled with the spirit of Halloween, Ali made his way through the arena dawning a Dracula like cape. But while his pre-fight outfit would seem to indicate that he was out for blood, it was Wagner who proved to be blood thirsty. 

In the opening few rounds, Ali went head hunting, experiencing loads of success in the process. But even after being forced to withdraw Ali’s onslaught, Wagner courageously fought on. At the midway point of their six-round showdown in New York’s Hulu Theater, Wagner. Began seizing control. Nevertheless, after weathering the storm, Ali took control in the final two frames, ultimately leading to his clear cut victory. 

Much like Ali, another young star showed off his overall boxing acumen on the night. 

After being ballyhooed for much of his young career, Delante “Tiger” Johnson (6-0, 4 KOs) took another step forward. Earlier tonight in Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater, the former Olympian and highly touted amateur pitched a one-sided shutout against Esteban Garcia (15-2, 7 KOs). 

Though he proved to be crafty and durable throughout, Johnson had little to no trouble with his man. Following five incredibly lopsided rounds, Johnson poured it on in the sixth and final round before pulling out the unanimous decision victory. The three judges sitting ringside agreed as they scored it 60-54 in favor of Johnson. 

Just a few moments prior to Johnson taking center stage, a 160-pound slugfest took place.  

Heading into his showdown against Quincy Lavallais (14-4-1, 9 KOs), Troy Isley (8-0, 4 KOs) revealed that he at some point in their showdown, he would catch his man flush, ending the night early. While he never found the fight ending blow, he spent the majority of their showdown pounding his man into oblivion. 

Still, even with Isley landing the harder and more thudding shots, Lavallais had a workman like effort. In the seventh, in particular, seemingly trailing on the cards, the longtime journeymen threw the proverbial kitchen sink at his man. As his shots proved to be innocuous, Isley turned up his aggression in the final frame. In the end, the undefeated middleweight prospect cruised to a unanimous decision victory. The final scores were as followed: 79-73, 80-72 and 80-72.

Abdullah Mason (5-0, 4 KOs) sauntered to the ring oozing with confidence. Moments later, he quickly revealed why. 

In front of a fairly sparse crowd, Mason made it look incredibly easy against Angel Barrera (4-1, 0 KOs). From the sound of the opening bell, Barrera plowed ahead, pushing his man into the ropes. While successful early, Mason eventually made his man pay, busting him up in that initial frame. 

With a mouth full of blood and on wobbly legs, Mason floored his man twice in the third before closing the show in the very next round. 

Prior to Mason taking care of business in the second bout of the night, Haven Brady Jr. stepped into the limelight. 

Despite being in the infancy stages of his career, Haven (8-0, 4 KOs) revealed that he was willing to take on all comers. Although he opened up tonight’s card at the Hulu Theater in New York’s Madison Square Garden by facing a fellow undefeated prospect in Eric Mondragon (7-1-1, 4 KOs), the lightweight up and comer had little to no trouble dealing with his man. 

After being forced to eight hard-fought rounds, the 130 pound prospect registered the lopsided unanimous decision victory by scores of 78-74 and two considerably wider scorecards of 79-73.
