By Tim Kudgis

XFE & King's Promotions presents "Kauffman vs Thompson" from the Sands Event Center in Bethlehem, PA - In the main event, WBA #9 Heavyweight Travis "My Time" Kauffman took on Vincent Thompson for the WBA Fedelatin Heavyweight Title.  The showdown was a classic style match up of "boxer vs puncher".  Kauffman tried to push the action from the onset of the bout but Thompson would more away or clinch to keep away from Kauffman's power.

Even though Kauffman wasn't able to land the huge punches, he was in control for the fight.  Thompson seemed set on surviving and didn't want to take any risks against the heavy handed Kauffman.  Kauffman dictated the pace from start to finish.  After the final bell, the judge's scorecards read 98-92 & 100-90 x 2 for your winner and NEW WBA Fedelatin HW Champ, Travis "My Time" Kauffman!

Frank Santos De Alba (10-1-2) vs Chazz McDowell (6-3) - 8 Rounds - McDowell proved to be tough than expected for the highly touted De Alba but it wasn't nothing he couldn't overcome.  De Alba pushed the action throughout the fight but McDowell refused to be caught in a dog fight.  McDowell made it so he was not easy to hit throughout the fight but De Alba continued to push forward and land on his elusive opponent.  As the fight wore on McDowell slowed significantly which opened himself up more to the never ending pressure from De Alba.  After the final bell, the judges scorecards read 80-72, 79-73 & 79-72 in favor of, via unanimous decision, Frank Santos De Alba (11-1-2).

Miguel Cartagena (10-0) vs. Felipe Rivas (15-15-2) - 8 Rounds - Cartagena boxed beautifully throughout this showcase fight with Felipe Rivas.  Cartagena showed tremendous speed and accuracy beating the grizzled veteran to the punch throughout the fight.  As the fight wore on Rivas became less and less competitive, while Cartagena showed why is he one of the top prospects out of Philadelphia.  At the end of the 6th, the referee called a halt to the action due to advice from the ringside Doctor.  Your winner, via TKO, Miguel Cartagena (11-0).

Samuel Quinones Jr (4-2) vs. Benjamin Burgos (1-5) - 4 Rounds - After a close first round, Quniones started to pull away against the tiring Burgos.  Throughout the fight Quinones was landing the harder shots but Burgos was staying game.  In the 4th round,  Quinones landed a barrage of punches on the tired Burgos forcing the ref to wave off the fight much to Burgos' dismay.  Your winner via TKO in the 4th round, Samuel Quiniones Jr (5-2).

Christian Molina (debut) vs. Dominic Goode (0-1) - 4 Rounds - The 1st round of Molina's career was a EXPLOSIVE one.  A huge right hand dropped Goode early but Goode was able to regroup.  Molina continued to batter Goode through the 2nd, landing powerful haymaker after powerful haymaker but to Goode's credit he showed a titanium chin.  The war waged on through the 3rd into the 4th where both men, dead tired, continued to battle to the fan's delight!  After 4 rounds, the judges scored the fight in favor of Christian Molina via Unanimous Decision!

Khalib Whitmore (4-0) vs. Antonio Liles (1-4) - 4 Rounds - GFL.tv "Prospect of the Year" nominee & Nazim Richardson protégé, Khalib Whitmore made short work of his opponent Liles.  After dominating the 1st round, Whitmore dropped Liles with a vicious right hand to the liver forcing Liles to stay grounded until the ref waved the bout off.  Your winner via KO, at the 1:11 mark of round 2, Whitmore (5-0).

Lonnie Jackson Jr (3-1-1) vs Robert Ramos (1-1) - 4 Rounds - Jackson started off on a fast pace.  Landing several clean shots and staggering Ramos to the point he had to take a standing 8 count.  In the 2nd, Jackson continued to land hard shots on Ramos but Ramos kept pushing forward.  Jackson dropped Ramos to start off the 3rd round but once again the hard-nosed Ramos regained his composure and stayed upright until the end of the round.  After taking this fight on a week notice, Lonnie Jackson Jr finished the final round as well as the fight strong.  After the final bell the judge's scorecards read 40-34 across the board in favor, via unanimous decision, Lonnie Jackson.
