Angel Hernandez DQ’d, Joey Hernandez Wins, Riot Erupts

By Joe Harrison

Former junior middleweight contender Angel “Toro” Hernandez (30-10, 17 KOs) was disqualified at the end of round eight against Joey “Twinkle Fingers” Hernandez (18-1-1, 10 KOs) for swinging after the bell on Friday night at Hanging Gardens Banquets in River Grove, IL. The scheduled ten-round contest for the vacant USBO belt was part of a duel-feature at Chicago Fight Night presented by Chicago Fight Clubs Promotion LLC.

At first, Angel was well-composed as he took the fight to Joey, but a quick left hand staggered Angel in the beginning of round two. They began to exchange frequently while Angel appeared to get the better of Joey when suddenly Angel was dropped in the closing seconds of the round. Angel did not seem hurt as he got back to his feet and went to his corner at the sound of the bell.

They continued to trade punches in round three as both landed hard punches. Angel’s punches were connecting often although he continued to swing while referee John O’Brien broke their clinches. Then Angel was deducted a point for excessive swinging during a break. Meanwhile, verbal exchanges began to ensue between separate groups of spectators.

Joey took command in rounds four and five as he landed numerous crisp punches. After a collision of heads, blood appeared near the eyes of both combatants.

The exchanges continued while both fighters landed hard punches, and it seemed that Angel’s aggression was paying off. Angel was also given a warning for throwing punches low.

In round eight, Angel continued to land but also threw a pair of punches below the belt. Joey was given a few minutes to recuperate as spectators continued to harass each other. Shorty after the action resumed, another time out was called by O’Brien and he pleaded with the fighters to be professional since they both continued to swing during a break. After the bell sounded ending the eighth round, Angel took another swing at Joey, and O’Brien disqualified Angel.

At the moment the contest was called off, Joey ran over to a corner and jumped onto a turnbuckle to rejoice in victory. Suddenly, Angel charged him from behind and struck him in the back of the head. Then cornermen from both sides jumped into the ring followed by more people from all sides of the ring, which added to the ruckus. Fans also joined in at ringside as others charged each other. The anarchy seemed to get worse as women picked up chairs to use as weapons, but security quickly took control of the riot inside and outside of the ring. Then the disturbance was brought to an end and the agitators were escorted out. Following the incident, the other main feature was allowed to begin.

In a twelve-round contest for the vacant IBO Inter-Continental middleweight title, Osumanu Adama (19-2, 14 KOs) scored a fourth-round TKO over Marcus Upshaw (13-5-1, 6 KOs).

Adama used an effective body attack to score against his taller, 6’3 opponent. Despite a much longer reach, Upshaw had much difficulty developing any type of attack, which allowed Adama to land upstairs on occasion as well.

In the fourth round, a strong left hook from Adama landed upon the face of Upshaw, dropping him to the canvas hard. Although Upshaw beat the count, he was in no condition to continue. The time of stoppage was 0:43.

In addition, a welterweight bout between Adrian Granados (7-1-1, 5 KOs) and Lanardo Tyner (24-4-2, 15 KOs) ended in an eight-round draw. Granados was the much busier of the two as he pressed the action throughout the contest, but Tyner was the more effective puncher as he connected solidly round after round. The scores read 77-75, 75-77, and 76-76.

In other results, super middleweight Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez (4-0, 3 KOs) defeated Cameron Allen (3-6, 1 KO) by a four-round unanimous decision. All three judges had the score 39-37.

Featherweight Eric Estrada (9-1, 3 KOs) defeated James Lester (9-5, 4 KOs) by a unanimous decision in a six-round bout. All three judges scored it 59-55.

Junior welterweight Antonio Canas (4-0, 3 KOs) scored a first-round TKO over Andrew Hartley (2-20, 1 KO). Official time of stoppage was 1:52.
