Yorgey and Tiger Sparkle in Philadelphia

By Larry Tornambe at Ringside
 
Harry Joe Yorgey moved, officially, to main event status on Friday night’s Power Production card in Philadelphia.  Yorgey normally has the most fans in attendance and is always making new followers with his straight ahead, active style; so it’s natural for his bout to be the main draw.  Harry Joe moved well and showed sharp boxing skills from the outset of his scheduled for 6-round bout with Sean Holly.  

It may not have mattered who was in there on Friday with Yorgey, the kid is showing plenty of talent and his heart has already been on display.  Yorgey won a fight with a broken jaw and another with a torn ACL suffered in the bout.  Harry hit Holly with a right directly on the left eye and followed with a sharp left hook.  Holly dropped to a knee and took the count while trying to blink away the pain, but he could not continue and Harry Joe Yorgey improves to 13-0.
 
Tiger Allen was also a winner in the first round in his pro debut.  After a stellar amateur career and some time away from boxing, Tiger returned to a TKO win.  Ed Graves folded quicker than a house of cards in a wind storm.  Not much to say here, Allen gets the TKO win at 1:05 of the first round.  Graves is winless in 6 bouts.
 
King Gabriel Rosado won every round, fueled by a 1st round knockdown versus Anthony Abrams.   Anthony was dropped by a right in the opener and was not moving his hands.  However Rosado was stretched to the 4-round distance for the first time in his undefeated three-bout career.  Abrams is 1-5.
 
In Simon Carr’s two pro fights he won both by knockout in less than a total of 90 seconds.  Luis Santiago didn’t get the memo and turned the tables by knocking Carr down in the first stanza.  Carr moved the wrong way, to his right, against the southpaw Santiago for much of the 4-round cruiserweight bout. It took Carr awhile to collect himself and Santiago was holding on the inside and zinging the occasional left underneath and to Carr’s jaw.  Simon looked like the busier fighter and Santiago’s face was busted up, but this reporter’s scorecard saw the edge going to Santiago.  The judges’ cards differed with Carr getting the slim, but unanimous decision.
 
Cecil Yost came from Ohio and beat the out of condition Brian Donahue over 4 in the middleweight division.  It was a majority decision but it went to the right guy in Yost (165 lbs; 2-3).  Donahue evens at 1-1 and spent too much time in the sauna trying to get to 167 pounds.
 
Darren Fallen TKO’d John Vaughn at 2:02 of the 2nd in the Junior Middleweight start up bout.
 
Power Productions promoted this card and is planning a return on May 5th.   Philadelphia boxing gets back to the Blue Horizon on April 7th and welcomes Partners In Crime Promotions to its first bout at the Lagoon in Essington, PA on April 19th.
