Press Release – Austin Bryant And Hafiz Montgomery Battle For Vacant WBF Title On June 22 Durham Fight Night Card

flier.jpg

 

Durham, NC (May 30)Austin Bryant and Hafiz Montgomery were scheduled to meet in Wilson, NC last year in a battle of up and coming Cruiserweights.  What a difference a year makes, because this time, a title will be on the line as Austin Bryant 4-0 (4 KO’s) and Hafiz Montgomery 3-1 (2 KO’s) battle for the vacant WBF North American Regional Title on  Top Catz Boxing’s June 22 Durham Fight Night card.

 

Bryant, who is coming off of a highlight reel stoppage of previously unbeaten Lawrence Gabriel, is excited to have his first shot at a professional belt, “I want to become a world champion like Canelo, and this is my first step.”

Fast forward one year, and the “Babyface Assassin” welcomes the moment:  “Hafiz was pretty cocky last time. I only had two fights, and he had three with a loss at the time, but he was talking and telling everyone how he was going to beat me.  Well, he has his chance, and I can get my first title.  Good Luck!”

 

Montgomery of Tom’s River, NJ has fought once since the postponement of his match-up with Bryant. Montgomery scored an impressive TKO of previously unbeaten Julian Poole at Harrah’s Casino in Chester, PA.

 

Bryant vs. Montgomery is the co-Main event on a card headlined by newly crowned UBF All-American Champion Maynard Allison.

Press Release – Ramos Beats Freeman – Undercard Excites On Thursday Night Fights at The Armory

Jeremy Ramos (R) Lands on Jamar Freeman (L)

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!”

 

Exciting Undercard Delivers A Big Punch For Thursday Night Fights at The Armory Crowd.
