Filippone, Robinson, Harrison Win Bouts at Chase Center

By Tim Kudgis

Chase Center, Wilmington, Delaware - Frankie "The Freight Train" Filippone didn't quite live up to his nickname against veteran tough guy Kevin Engel.  A more suitable nickname for the fight would have been "Flashy" Frankie Filippone because the boxer/cop used his flashiness and speed to befuddle Engel throughout the fight.  Filippone used the Ali shuffle at one point to land punches as well as several other dance moves.  Engel was simply not busy enough and seemed confused by Filippone's tactics throughout the fight.  The judges scored the fight 97-93, 98-92, and 99-93 for Filippone.  With the victory Filippone picks up the interim NABA Light Heavyweight title.

"The New" Ray Robinson looked to keep his winning streak intact as he faced Alberto Morales for the vacant NABA strap.  In the 1st round, Robinson dropped Morales with a counter right uppercut but Morales arose and kept fighting.  Robinson looked great keeping Morales at bay with his reach.  Morales showed glimmers of hope throughout the fight but couldn't keep the rangy Robinson off of him.  The judges scored the fight 100-89, 99-91, & 98-91 for Robinson.

Joey Tiberi overmatched the game Moses Molina over the course of 4 rounds.  Tiberi suffered a cut early but his cutman Joey Eye did a great job of keeping it at bay.  The 19 year old Molina had his moments but was unable to keep Tiberi at bay.  The judges scored the fight 39-37 x 3 for Tiberi (8-1).

Fan Favorite Luis Hernandez made his highly anticipated pro debut against Harlem's Curtis Morton. Hernandez had a significant reach advantage, but Morton took away the advantage by rushing the "green" Hernandez.  The fight was close the entire 4 rounds but Hernandez seemed to have the better power shots and body work but Morton kept the pressure on.  The fight could have been scored either way but the judges had it 39-37 for Morton &  39-37 x 2 for your winner via split decision Luis Hernandez.

Melissa St Vil & Natasha "The Nightmare" Spence went to WAR over six close rounds.  St Vil was showing why they call her "Little Tyson" early by being a nightmare to "The Nightmare" land crisp power punches at will.  Spence started playing catchup against the aggressor St Vil in the later round but it seemed to be a little too late.  The judges scored the fight 76-76, 79-73 & 78-74 in favor of Melissa "Little Tyson" St Vil (4-1-2).

DMV Prospect & 18 year old prospect Dusty Harrison used his reach advantage to batter his 36 year old last minute opponent Kelly Wright.  Harrison controlled the entire fight before dropping Wright in the 3rd.  Wright rose from the knockdown but Harrison attacked again forcing Wright's corner to call a halt to the action at the 1:39 mark of the 3rd Round.
