Hernandez, Stiverne, Oliveira, Augustama Win in Miami

Casino Miami Jai-Alai, Miami, Florida - Joey “Twinkle Fingers” Hernandez (TKO 1 – 2:46 over Shakir Ashanti, raising his record to 21-1-1, 12 KOs) “I’m a bad dude when I want to be.  I wiped out Shakir Ashanti like a plate of dishes in the first round—and he went 10 rounds with Cory Spinks!

“I hit him with a left hook.  Once I smell blood I go in for the kill.

Bermane “B-Ware” Stiverne (Unanimous Decision over Willie Herring: 79-73, twice, and 77-75 – raising his record to 22-1-1, 20KOs): “Willie Herring gave me just what I needed tonight, a chance to show all the things we’ve been working on in the gym like head movement, establishing my jab, body shots and throwing punches in bunches.

“I came to fight and so did Herring.  I threw a lot of leather and he got most of it.

“I took this fight and short notice but it was good to get some rust worked out.  Herring is lighter and moves well so it wasn’t easy for me to land everything I threw, but he knew when I did.

“It was great to be fighting where I grew up in Miami in front of friends and family.”

Marcus “Happy” Oliveira (KO 1 over Adam Collins – :49 – raising his record to 23-1-1, 23 KOs – Brazil): “I predicted I would win the fight with a body shot and I did.  My body shot dropped him for good.  The last time I saw a body shot like that was Tito Trinidad vs. Rafael Pineda.  I’m a big Tito fan, so I have always wanted to land a body shot like that.

“When I hit him in the face he covered up his head, so I took it to his body.

“I’m ready to fight for a world championship this year.  I’d fight Nathan Cleverly tomorrow.”

Azea “Haitian Hitman” Augustama (KO 2 over Grover Young – :55 – raising his record to 13-1, 8 KOs): “It was great to fight at home with my fans cheering for me.  I wanted to put on a good show.

 “I was fighting a southpaw but it didn’t bother me.  I squeezed in a right hand that forced him to take a knee.”
