Raleigh, NC (May 21) – Many ringside observers believed Maynard Allison would walk over Eric Hernandez in their 135 pound battle for the vacant UBF All-American title.  Instead, the previously unbeaten Hernandez (9-1 5 KO’s) forced the best out of Allison, and Allison responded with a well deserved UD win for his first title in a show stealing performance.

 

Allison and Hernandez exchanged leather from the opening bell.  Allison used superior boxing skills to repeatedly land a good, crisp jab and short combinations to control the majority of round one, but Hernandez methodically worked inside Allison’s jab, and a firefight ensued.

 

Round two was much the same, but Hernandez landed a big left hook to Allison’s body followed by a right hand to the head.  Allison woke up and all hell broke loose.

 

In round three, Allison came out winging and landing big punches on the stalking Hernandez.  While Hernandez was being rocked, he kept coming forward forcing Allison into what might be the round of the year in North Carolina boxing. Allison planted his feet and Hernandez tried to put his head in the middle of Allison’s chest.  Neither man gave ground as they blasted each other with soul stealing lefts and rights, body shots, and knee bending head shots.  After the fight, Allison acknowledged he could have easily out boxed Hernandez, but Allison quickly quipped, “I needed to give the fans something, so I stood in and fought.”

 

Round four was Hernandez’s best round, and the only one he won on the judge’s scorecards.  Hernandez jumped in and attacked Allison’s body.  Hernandez would keep pushing and force a visibly exhausted Allison into the corner where Hernandez delivered body shot after body shot which forced the very defensive and tired Allison to double over.  Trapped in the corner, Allison tried to protect his body, but Hernandez started landing thudding shots to Allison’s head.  Just when Allison looked done, he stood flat footed and fired off a barrage of punches that forced Hernandez to stumble backward.  Allison was back on the attack at the end of round four.

 

Rounds five, six, and seven saw Allison control the early stages of each round, Hernandez would deliver punishing body work in the middle of the round, but Allison would check hook and throw a right hand counter to control the ring and a desperate Hernandez.

 

Allison came out fresh for the final round.  He bounced on his toes and repeatedly landed a jab, over hand right, and a left to Hernandez’s body.  Hernandez was still coming, but Allison’s shots were stopping Hernandez in his tracks.  The last minute of the eighth and final round were pure guts as the two warriors stood toe to toe talking to each other and exchanging shot after shot as the crowd stood on their feet and the final bell rang.

 

In the end, the judges scored the fight 79-73 all for the winner and new 135 pound UBF All-American champion Mr. Marvelous Maynard Allison.

 

While coaches Lando and Massey would have preferred Allison keep Hernandez in the middle of the ring, both recognized the heart and will Allison displayed.  “Maynard dug deep and really established himself to win that belt,” said Lando.  Massey would add, “That is the best I’ve ever seen Maynard.  He earned the title.  He worked for every piece of that belt.  Coach Lando has him right.”

 

Maynard Allison earned a title and improved his record to 8-1 (5 KO’s), and is scheduled to return to the ring as the main event June 22 on Top Catz Boxing’s Durham Fight Night card.

maynard.jpgRaleigh, NC (May 17) – For Maynard Allison, his fight May 20 at the Raleigh Convention Center is not just another chance to fight in front of a large North Carolina crowd.  This time the stakes are high, because this time is TITLE TIME.

 

Allison 7-1 (5 KO’s) faces his former Virginia stablemate and undefeated prospect Eric Hernandez 9-0 (5 KO’s) for the vacant 135 lb UBF All-American title.

 

Allison and Hernandez came up in the the amateurs together. Allison is very familiar Hernandez’s style, and had this to say, “Eric is a good fighter with quick hands. He is a slick Mexican fighter.”

 

Hernandez and his undefeated record present Allison with a new challenge. While Hernandez is not the best fighter Allison has faced, Hernandez is the first undefeated fighter from outside the state of North Carolina to face Allison on his home turf.  Allison sees this as a huge advantage.  “Man, I have been in Eric’s shoes.  I went to Vegas undefeated to face a guy with one loss in Ledarius Miller.  It was a different type of pressure. Records don’t matter.  Now I have the advantage.”

 

This is a “Do or Die” fight for Maynard Allison.  With a win, he will earn his first professional title, and stay on track for a coveted rematch with Ledarius Miller.  With a loss, Allison and his team will need to look deep in the mirror and do some heavy soul searching. Allison understands the magnitude of this fight.  As we were hanging up to end the conversation, he stopped me to say, “I am excited about this fight.  Yeah, I can win a title, but I want to make a statement.   It is Title Time!”

Durham, NC – Jeremy Ramos and his Coach, Juan Ramos, hand picked Jamar Freeman for a fight in Freeman’s home state of North Carolina.  Whoa, were they ever right as Ramos beat Freeman by unanimous decision on the Top Catz Boxing in association with Raging Babe Thursday Night Fights at The Armory card.

 

Freeman established his jab early in round one, but wasn’t able to control the distance as Ramos calmly picked his spots to counter Freeman’s jab by sliding in to land two and three punch combinations.  While all of Ramos’ punches didn’t land, it set the stage for the later rounds.

 

By rounds three and four, it was evident Ramos was the aggressor.  Ramos used a short jab to get inside then move the taller Freeman away from the center of the ring where Ramos would land body shots, sharp hooks, and right hands.  Freeman 15-6-2 (8 KO’s) would escape danger, but when he had openings he would not take them.  “I needed to throw more punches tonight.  I wasn’t active.  I felt like I did enough to win, but I should have been busier with my hands,” said a dejected Freeman.

 

Ramos went all out on his attack in the fifth round, landing a clean shot that forced Freeman to stumble back to the ropes. Ramos stepped up the assault, but was unable to stop a recovering Freeman.

 

In the Final round, with chants of “Freeman, Freeman, Freeman” echoing throughout the raucous crowd, Freeman landed his best shots of the night.  He started with a left right combination which briefly staggered Ramos.  Ramos survived and began his attack as the crowd suddenly changed and starting chanting “Ramos, Ramos, Ramos.”  The wild final round ended with Freeman landing a few more hard shots, but it was too little too late as the final bell sounded and the Judges correctly scored the fight 58-56 all in favor of Jeremy “The Boxing Barber” Ramos.

 

Ramos’ likable demeanor and aggressive style won over the North Carolina crowd as he improved his record to 10-5 (4 KO’s). “It was so much fun fighting here, and we hope to come back.  I am not much of a talker, but I let my fist do the talking in the ring tonight.  We came here and did what we were supposed to.  I am so excited!”
