Junior Middleweight Ardreal Holmes (6-0, 4 KOs) of Flint, Michigan remained undefeated as he stopped Dominque Foster after the 2nd round of their scheduled four-round bout at The International Banquet and Conference Center in Detroit.
Holmes landed hard straight shots from the southpaw stance on Foster, who had to retire on the stool after the 2nd round with a possible broken nose.
"I am very happy to get back in the ring and get some of the rust off," said the victorious Holmes. "Hopefully my promoters can put me right back because I want to make up for lost time. It's only a matter of time when everyone in boxing will know the name, Ardreal "Bossman" Holmes! "
Holmes is managed by Split-T Management, and CEO David McWater was very happy to have 6'2" junior middleweight prospect back in the ring.
"Ardreal did what I expected him to do, which was impress the fans with an impressive stoppage. He has the frame, skills and power to win titles in 4 weight divisions and I expect him to do just that."
Raquel Miller kept her prefect record intact with a six-round unanimous decision over Szilvia Szabados in a middleweight bout at the Melrose Ballroom in Queens, New York.
Miller stunned and hurt Szabados throughout the contest. Miller, who was making her New York City debut showed her versatility by featuring a diverse arsenal of punches with both hands.
Miller handled the former world-title challenger with ease as she won by shutout scores of 60-54 on all cards.
Miller wore a ring outfit that paid homage to the movie Black Panther.
The 2012 United States Olympic Alternate, Miller continued her dominance as a professional as her record soared to 6-0.
"I enjoyed myself in there last night and it felt good to be back in action," said Miller. "I felt strong, and I felt like that I had a solid performance. My opponent was tough and I was happy to get the rounds in. Fighting under the DiBella Entertainment banner is very special, and I appreciated being warmly embraced by Lou DiBella himself!"
"I decided to come out as the leader of the Wakanda tribe in the movie Black Panther, Dora Milaje. I was accented in gold because I felt they represent the new age women warriors like myself. We are fierce, strong and not afraid to go to war. I love to trailblaze, and set the bar high. I'm sure we can expect to see other women coming out and joining the Wakanda tribe and I'm happy to be the leader of that movement. "
Said Split-T Management CEO, David McWater, "After being off for 8 months, I was more than happy with her performance. Going in, I wanted to see how she performed with Szilvia Szabados as compared to how Clarrissa Shields performed and Raquel definitely looked better."
