Cassius Chaney Blasts Out Nick Jones in Three Rounds

Heavyweight prospect Cassius Chaney knocked out Nick Jones in round three Wednesday night at the Castleton Banquet and Conference Center in Windham, New Hampshire.

With the victory, Chaney improves to 18-0, 12 knockouts.

The 32-year-old Chaney, who resides in New London, Connecticut, last fought on Oct. 11, knocking out Santander Silgado in the opening round. He has been busy of late, having fought four times within the last eight months.


From the opening bell, the taller and stronger Chaney was the aggressor, walking Jones down and throwing two-punch combinations to the head and body. Jones was on the defensive, fighting off his back foot or grabbing onto Chaney during numerous exchanges.

With about a minute left in round two, Chaney almost dropped Jones with a right hand to the head. Jones was able to stay on his feet and fight back, but the inevitable end was near.

The end came in round three as Chaney landed consecutive left hooks to the body followed by a right uppercut to the head, dropping Jones to the canvas. Referee Leo Gerstel counted Jones out at 1:22.

Chaney, who is promoted by Main Events, has now stopped his last seven opponents.

Jones, from Oklahoma City, has lost his last three bouts, and by knockout, and drops to 7-3, 5 KOs.

Junior middleweight prospect LeShawn Rodriguez (12-0, 9 KOs) of Shirley, New York stopped Francisco Castro at 46 seconds of the eighth and final round. Castro (28-12, 23 KOs), who is originally from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico and now resides in El Paso, Texas, has now lost eight of his last nine bouts.

Junior middleweight Ismael Villarreal of the Bronx, New York defeated Yonkers, New York resident Jermaine Corley (3-8, 1 KO) by unanimous decision. Scores were 59-54, 59-54, and 59-55 for Villarreal, who improves to 7-0, 3 KOs.

40-year-old Brendon Simonds of Haverhill, Massachusetts improved to 4-0, 3 KOs by defeating Ian Beatease of Schuylerville, New York (0-5) by unanimous decision. All three judges scored the bout 39-37 for Simonds.

Lightweight Dominic Monzione defeated Henry Garcia (0-5-1)of New Bedford, Massachusetts by unanimous decision. Scores were 39-37, 39-37, and 40-36 for Monzione (4-0, 3 KOs), who resides in Lynnfield, Massachusetts.

There are several unbeaten prospects nowadays, who go on fighting bums. Why not trying to elevate their record and fight among them? They did this with Dubois vs Gorman, but nothing else. Make Chaney vs Ajagba, Dubois vs Joyce, kownacki…
