Dulorme, Redkach, Peterkin, Day, Cruz Win in New York

New York, NY - Earlier tonight, DiBella Entertainment presented a seven-bout card before a packed house at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City.

Headlining the card was WBA #10 junior welterweight contender Thomas Dulorme taking on Eddie Brooks in an eight-round contest. DBE

Dulorme was returning to the ring for the first time since his first pro defeat to top-rated welterweight contender Carlos Abregu and campaigning in a new lighter weight class.  The bout was contest at a catch-weight of 143lbs., although Brooks came in overweight, tipping the scales at 148 lbs.

Boxing insiders were curious to see how the highly-touted Dulorme would respond coming off his first defeat, and the Puerto Rican impressed in a major way.

Dulorme came out looking like a man on a mission.  Dulorme stalked Brooks from the outset, before landing a beautiful counter right hand, flush on the jaw of Brooks, dropping him hard.  Brooks attempted to beat the count, only to crumble to the canvas yet again.  The official time of the stoppage was 1:35 of the very first round.

Dulorme improved to 17-1, 13KO's, with the victory.  Look for Dulorme to be in a significant fight in the junior welterweight division very soon.

REDKACH BLITZES ANOTHER FOE

In the co-feature bout of the evening, Ivan Redkach, of Los Angeles, improved to 14-0, 12 KOs, scoring a KO at 2:06 of the very first round against Sergio Rivera, now 27-11-2, 17 KOs. Scheduled for eight rounds in the lightweight division, the knockout artist Redkach came out of his corner like a tornado, throwing fast combinations to the head and body. Body shots bent Rivera in half and the southpaw Redkach followed up with uppercuts to the chin that dropped his foe for the full count.

DBE NEXT GENERATION IMPRESSES. PETERKIN, DAY, CRUZ ALL SCORES KO'S

Brooklyn's "The Notorious" Travis Peterkin handed out a vicious three-round beat-down to Thomas Turner in their scheduled six-round light heavyweight contest.

The Brooklyn-native Peterkin came out firing in the first and didn't let off the gas, as he pummeled Turner, scoring with hellacious shots from both hands.

With Turner taking heavy punishment against the ropes, the referee called a halt to the contest at 2:10 of the third round.  With the win, Peterkin improves to a perfect 7-0, 4KO's.

In a battle of junior middleweights, DBE's recently signed 2012 USA Boxing National Champion Patrick Day made Dominique Foster quit after the first round of their scheduled four-round contest.

The Freeport, Long Island-native Day came out firing blistering shots to both the body and head of Foster.  Midway through the round, Day landed a crippling left hook to the body that seemed to bother Foster badly.  Foster was able to survive the round but between rounds he was complaining of a possible broken rib.  Foster had to be escorted out of the ring by both of his cornermen.

With the win, Day improves to 2-0, 2KO's, while Foster drops to 2-2-1.

In his DBE debut, the Bronx's Louis Cruz did not disappoint, scoring a sensational one-punch KO over Demond Brock (3-1, 2KO's).

Brock came out from the opening bell and immediately showed that he had come to fight.  Cruz used his jab, switching from orthodox to southpaw, trying to confuse the hard-pressing Brock. However, Brock was clearly the aggressor.

In the second round, Cruz began to find his range behind a stiff jab, but it was another close round with Brock applying constant aggression.

In the third round, Cruz landed a picture-perfect counter left hook that dropped Brock badly.  Brock rose to his feet but was in no condition to continue, causing the referee to call a halt to the contest at 1:12 of the third round.  With the win, Cruz improves to 2-0, 2KO's.

OTHER RESULTS

In a six-round female flyweight bout, Brooklyn's fan-favorite Keisher McLeod-Wells improved to 6-2, 1KO, with an impressive six-round unanimous decision over Canadian Amateur Champion Jacqueline Park, now 1-1. Scorecards read 59-55, and 58-56 twice, all for McLeod-Wells.

In the opening bout of the night, junior lightweight Neuky Santelises came out looking to seek and destroy, as he jumped all over his opponent Denis Madriz.  Santelises, from Brooklyn, NY, immediately began scoring with monstrous shots with both hands.  With Madriz taking heavy punishment against the ropes, the referee had no choice but to call a halt to the contest.  The official time of the stoppage was 46 seconds into the very first round.

With the win, Santelises improved to a perfect 4-0, 3KO's, while Madriz dropped to 0-1-1.
