ROSEMONT, ILLINOIS, May 18, 2011 — Hitz Boxing Promotions returned to Rosemont this Wednesday, May 18, with two Irishmen featured in separate middleweights bouts. Andy Lee of Limerick squared off against Alex Bunema for the NABA and NABF titles, and Henry Coyle of Geesala faced Keith Collins of Missouri. Crowd-watchers and celebrity hounds could spot several, including First Lady of Boxing Jackie Kallen, the very visible celebrity ring announcer Amy Hayes, actor Vince Vaughn, as well as several former Chicago Bears and politicians, including legendary Chicago Bears defensive back Shaun Gayle.

Felix Abner (L) looks for his opportunity against Keon Graham

Kicking off the fistic action were Felix Abner (now 3-2, 1 KO, 226 lbs) of Chicago and Keon Graham (2-6, 234 lbs.) of Akron, Ohio.  Graham looked to be carrying a few extra pounds, but seemed unconcerned by the trim Abner, who entered the ring wearing a Bulls shirt. Round one began with both men jabbing, with Abner out-landing Graham, who backed up on his heels. Early in the round, Graham was rocked by a left hook but recovered.  A cross in the second half of the round sent Graham into the blue corner, with Abner taking the opportunity to land a few more shots. The round proceeded at a measured pace, Abner stalking Graham looking for opportunities, and Graham drifting into the ropes to only to be caught by punches to head and body. (continue reading…)
