Donatas Bondorovas Downs King David in Two Rounds

Promoter Bobby Hitz and Hitz Boxing held another of their popular "Fight Night at the Horseshoe" events at The Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana, and the action did not disappoint.

In the night's main-event rematch, Chicago middleweight Donatas Bondorovas (17-3-1, 6 KOs) removed any doubts of his superiority over "King" David Thomas (10-4-2, 8 KOs), and in turn won the UBF Middleweight title, with a TKO 2 (2:09). With a nearly helpless Thomas being battered against the ropes, Referee Curt Spivey decided he'd seen enough and waved it off.

Promising Chicago cruiserweight slugger Dimar "Strongman" Ortuz (8-0, 5 KOs) scored a harder-than-expected six-round unanimous (59-55 X 3) decision over Memphis, Tennessee, journeyman Grover "The Cobra" Young (7-9-1, 4 KOs).  Young enjoyed some success forcing Ortuz to box, while Ortuz showed surprisingly good boxing skills.

Unbeaten Chicago prospect Mike "Hollywood" Jimenez (10-0, 7 KOs) put a beating on tough veteran Michael Walker (19-18-3, 12 KOs), landing uppercuts and body shots almost at will. Walker's corner had seen enough of the carnage and instructed the referee to wave it off at 1:30 of the second round.

Heavyweight slugger David Martin III (7-0-1, 5 KOs, 224 lbs.) of Hammond, Indiana, scored a six-round unanimous (59-55, 59-55, 58-56) over Chicago's Felix Abner (3-3, 2 KOs). It was bombs away early for Martin, who then tired and had to fight his way out of a few sticky situations. In the end, he landed the more effective blows in an entertaining fight.

Bantamweight Johnny "Wite Boi" Determan moved his record to 6-0, 5 KOs with a sensational first-round knockout over Indiana's Guadalupe Bueno (0-2). A perfect right knocked Bueno cold at 2:59 of round one.

North Barrington, Illinois' "Irish" Jimmy Murphy continued his short but exciting pro career with a thrilling KO 1 over Lansing, Michigan's Adam Alvarez. Both men were down in a seesaw battle, but it was Murphy who had the last word putting Alvarez down and out with a straight left at 1:24.

Chicago welterweight Nick Ramirez (1-0-1) got into the win column for the first time with an injury-tarnished TKO victory over Plainfield, Illinois' Tremaine Pride (1-0). A good-action scrap was ruined when Pride's shoulder came dislocated, forcing him to stop.

Former amateur standout turned bantamweight prospect Adan Ortiz (6-0, 5 KOs) of Sterling, Illinois, scored a scary knockout over's journeyman LeShaun Blair. A volley of punches to head and body, punctuated by a left hook, ended things at 1:15 of round one.

Lightweight Russell Fiore (7-2-1, 6 KOs) of Chicago scored a "closer than the scorecards" unanimous four-round decision over Rockford, Illinois' Anthony Linsenfelser (3-4, 3 KOs). Fiore managed to close the distance more often and more effectively against the always-game Linenfelser.
