Monaghan, Dulorme, Rosinsky, Bracero Win in New York

Roseland Ballroom, New York City - Earlier tonight before a near capacity crowd at the Roseland Ballroom, DiBella Entertainment presented the latest installment of the Broadway Boxing series.

In the main event bout of the evening, before his army of fans, Long Island's favorite son "Irish" Seanie Monaghan improved his record to a perfect 14-0, 9KO's, winning the WBC Continental Americas Light Heavyweight title in the process with an eighth-round TKO over Romero Johnson.

The crowd went into an uproar as soon as the bagpipes sounded to signal Monaghan's walk into the ring, and they didn't let up for the entire contest. Monaghan jumped on Johnson from the opening bell, scoring with hard combinations to both the body and head. Johnson showed that he came to fight though, choosing to stand toe-to-toe with the heavy-handed Monaghan.

Monaghan, who is known for his aggressive nonstop action style, switched things midway through the fight, showing another dimension to his arsenal by boxing nicely from the outside behind a stiff jab.

Just when it looked as though Monaghan would cruise to an easy unanimous decision, a huge right hand rocked Johnson badly.  Sensing his opponent was in trouble, Monaghan went in for the kill, jumping all over Johnson, landing heavy shots with both hands.  Johnson showed a granite chin, refusing to go to the canvas, but there was just no stop in Monaghan as he continued to let his hands go.

With their fighter taking heavy punishment, Johnson's corner summoned the ringside physician to call a halt to the contest.  Official time of the stoppage was 2:30 of round number eight.

Welterweight Thomas Dulorme (15-0, 12 KOs) stopped Alberto Herrera (8-7-1, 5 KOs) after seven rounds of punishment. Dulorme served out combinations and bombs until Herrera was unable to come out for the eight round.

Super middleweight Will Rosinsky (16-1, 9 KOs) won an eight round unanimous decision over Aaron Pryor Jr. (16-6, 11 KOs). The scores were 79-73, 79-73, and 78-74. Rosinksy gets his second win in a row after dropping a decision to Edwin Rodriguez last October. Pryor loses his third in a row.

Junior welterweight Gabriel Bracero (19-1, 3 KOs) got a win in bank with an eight round decision over Jermaine White (17-5, 10 KOs). The scores were 80-71, 79-72, and 77-74. Bracero was coming off an upset decision loss to DeMarcus Corley from January of this year in the same venue.

Dulorme is a very special talent. Alexander or Malignaggi should be no problem at this point for him. While he hasn't faced that great of an opposition in his last two fights, he has fought some quality boxers like Chop…
