In one of two pro boxing contests featured on Saturday night’s mixed combat sports card at the EdenVale Winery in Medford, Oregon, local welterweight Troy Wohosky (2-2, 1 KO) broke a four year stretch of inactivity with an entertaining five round unanimous decision win over Redding, California’s Brennon Crow (0-1). The bout was part of an all day mixed combat sports event presented by Rogue Promotions.

Wohosky worked well from range in the first two rounds, using his superior boxing skills to set the distance and maneuver in and out of the pocket, smashing Crow with leaping left hooks upstairs and solid digs to the mid-section. Crow, an MMA fighter who was making his pro boxing debut, proved to be a game competitor, pressing forward trying to cut down the distance on his elusive opponent even while taking some hellacious shots. Late in the second round Crow’s vigilance paid off as he was able to corner Wohosky and unloaded with a barrage, forcing Wohosky into a closed quarters fight. The two fighters closed out the round trading heavily to the cheers of an appreciative crowd.

Heavy-handed Pacific Northwest banger Steven “Hands of Gold” Villalobos (4-0, 4 KOs) will look to add a fifth consecutive win on Saturday night at the Mount Baker Theater in Bellingham, Washington, facing off with Idaho’s Vince Morales in a four round Jr. middleweight fight. The bout will be one of four boxing contests featured on Avelar/Galeas Promotions’ inaugural ‘Fight Night Championship,’ which will have both boxing and MMA on the card.

Villalobos, of Burlington, Washington, has scored all four of his wins by knockout and all within the first round. The twenty-six year old from Burlington, Washington started boxing only two years ago and had a relatively short yet successful amateur career, claiming a Tacoma Golden Gloves championship in 2016. He turned pro last September with a first round knockout of Colby Grayson and has stayed fairly busy since, fighting three times in 2017. He last fought on June 24th, scoring an impressive first round TKO over William Fernandez. (continue reading…)
