Undefeated former lightweight world champion Paul "Pittsburgh Kid" Spadafora (48-0-1, 19KOs) defeated "Red Hot" Robert Frankel (32-13-1, 6KOs) by way of ten round unanimous decision

In the exciting ten round main event, Spadafora continued his ascension back into the world title picture by gutting out a win over the gritty challenger Frankel to capture the NABF super lightweight championship.

Spadafora's punches were much more accurate than Frankel's, who threw around the same amount of punches as "The Pittsburgh Kid" in the early rounds. 

Frankel's will was valiant but he was unable to match the slick southpaw Spadafora's skill.  Massive right hooks from Spadafora damaged the left eye of Frankel.  The tenth round saw both fighters let it all hang out, as each one threw power punches unmercifully.

Spadafora showed a masterful performance with accurate punching, elusive body movement and ring generalship. 

Scores were 97-93, 98-92, 99-91

"Everybody deserves a second chance and I'm glad that I got one. Frankel brought the best out of me and I came prepared for this fight."  said Spadafora after the fight.

Undefeated heavyweight prospect Ed Latimore (2-0, 2KOs) defeated Donnie Crawford (1-6-1, 1KO) by technical knockout in round two

Latimore began the fight throwing about ten straight left hooks to the body to Crawford.  Crawford would weather the storm and gave Latimore problems for the remainder of the first.  A right uppercut in the beginning of round two by Latimore dropped Crawford.  Latimore landed another right uppercut to once again drop Crawford.  Crawford's corner stepped in to stop their fighter from receiving anymore damage.

Travis Clark (3-0, 1KOs) knocked out Martez Williamson (1-1) in the first round

In a battle of undefeated cruiserweights, Williamson and Clark put on a displeasing effort for the West Virginia crowd.  Clark dropped Williamson twice in the first 90 seconds of the fight.  After the second knockdown, Williamson told the referee that he wanted no more of Clark. 

Undefeated light middleweight prospect Joey "The Hitman" Holt defeated Austin Marcum by technical knockout in round four.

Holt got off to a slow start in the first two minutes of the opening round.  Holt (3-0, 3KOs) delivered a vicious attack on Marcum (4-3-1, 2KOs) and almost had his opponent out of there in the closing seconds of round one.  Marcum didn't engage much in the fight, but still managed to frustrate Holt at times.  A left hook in round four by Holt forced the referee to issue a standing eight count after Marcum was being held up by the ropes.  Marcum survived but was immediately attacked by a Holt barrage to end the contest by technical knockout.

Been my favorite fight my whole life, nothing new here. Frankel is a journeyman, and a tough one, but that doesn't mean anything. Paul has slipped, I mean he is 37, but he still has some gas in the tank…
