Friday, October 18, 2019, Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino, Niagara Falls, New York – It was a beautiful night for boxing at the All Star Boxing, Inc. promotion, professional boxing event in Niagara Falls, New York. The Western New York fans came out in support of professional boxing coming back to the region. There were 8 fights on the card, that did not disappoint. The sold out event was broadcasted live on national network, NBC Universal, subsidiary BOXEO Telemundo. Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino has partnered with All Star Boxing, Inc. to bring professional boxing to Western New York on a more consistent basis. Christian Printup, Sr. Executive Director of Entertainment & Special Events, Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino, and Ruben De Jesus, Operations Director, All Star Boxing, Inc. represented their respective companies in a leadership capacity. They both should be commended for their hard work in putting on this successful event.
The Fight Card
Seneca Fight Night was a demonstration of Buffalo/Niagara vs The World. Local pro boxers put on a show seldom given to hometown fans. Buffalo went 7-0 against game completion. The presentation of the event was out of the playbook of high-level productions. From the theatrical ring walks, beautiful ring card girls, lighting schemes, to the big screen televisions; it was worth the price of admission. It was uplifting to see our local pro prospects up-close and personal. This is a winning formula for future events. A job well done.
In the Ring, My Recap
- Bout #1 – Muareen Shea, Bronx, NY, 27-2 (12 KO’s) vs. Edina Kiss, Budapest, Hungary, 15-11 (9 KO’s) Shea dominated the entire fight, but Kiss did not back up and made it a war. Great win for Shea, by UD 60-54 on all 3 score cards.
- Bout #2 – Charles Garner III, Buffalo, NY, Pro Debut vs. Angel Cotto, Mt. Vernon, NY, Pro Debut. CG3 had to fight for the win, which entertained the hometown crowd. Garner is a physical specimen that has the athletic ability to make some noise in the Jr. Welterweight division. What he has in heart and wiliness to entertain, he lacks in fundamentals so early in his career. A strong jab and a right cross would have got Cotto, out of there. CG3 won by UD 40-36, 39-37 twice.
- Bout #3 – Ayanna Trament, Buffalo, NY, Pro Debut vs. Ashlee Furtrell, Las Vegas, NY, Pro Debut. Trament is a tall, imposing female boxer that has amateur experience. She was literally and technically, heads and shoulders above her competition. Furtell was eventually punched into a corner and forced to quit. Trament wins her pro debut by 2nd round TKO.
- Bout #4 – Gerffred Ngayot, Buffalo, NY, 1-0 (1 KO) vs. Darel Harris, Sarasota, FL, 2-15. In the opening round Ngayot had a focus on his defense, with a high guard. Harris had an unorthodox, aggressive style, which left him open for clean shots by Ngayot. It was a concentration on bodywork that caused Harris major problems. Ngayot wins by UD.
