Isiah Thomas, Glendy Hernandez Get Wins in Jacksonville

By Reynaldo Sanchez

23-year-old cruiserweight prospect Isiah Thomas got another victory to extend his record to 10-0-0 (5 KO's). Thomas returned this past weekend at the The Plush Entertainment Complex of Jacksonville, Florida. Promoter Henry Rivalta informed us that Thomas won a unanimous decision over ten rounds against Mexico's Ricardo Campillo.

After a brief retirement, Thomas is back in the game and displayed the potential to go a great deal farther. Henry Rivalta and Acquinity Sports are confident that with time his career will achieve big things, and in one to two years Thomas will be ranked as one of the best within his weight group.

“Isiah Thomas has excellent physical and conditioning skills. At this stage we are fighting bouts that will gradually take him back to the level that he was at before moving away from the boxing scene in 2010. We are not in a hurry and understand that he is young and his chances of rising to the top of this sport rests on his results and providing him with the kind of opponents that give him the confidence and the experience he needs,” stated Rivalta.

Also on the undercard, “Guantánamo Giant” Glendy Hernandez 9-0-0 (5 KO's) showed fortitude and defeated Andrae Corthron by TKO in the fifth of a bout scheduled for eight.

“The first few rounds began with a lot of speed and power, it really was a hard fight and it seemed that both of us were not two middleweights but two heavyweights with the intensity of the blows that were thrown. Fortunately, my physical preparation and experience  put me ahead and I was able to hit to him with a good combinations and I defeated him by TKO," Hernández told us

His promoters at Acquinity Sports, and his manager Michael Luzbeth, have great confidence and believe that very soon Glendy will turn into one of the best boxers within the heavyweight class.

“I am satisfied with the result of the fight against Cathorn. I came in excellent condition and that helped me during the fight, I am preparing myself with confidence and we are targeted on conquering a regional title and a better place within the rankings.”
