Fonfara, Grenados, Gonzalez and Wright Thrill with Knockouts in Entertaining Undercard
By Kerstin Broockmann
CHICAGO, IL, December 6, 2013 — In another mix of local and international boxing prospects, contenders and journeyman, 8 Count Promotions with Knockout Promotions and Warriors Boxing, drew a large and boisterous crowd to the UIC Pavilion in Chicago. Evanston, Illinois Cruiserweight Junior Wright looked devastatingly impressive in his stoppage of Harley Kilfian. Light middleweight Jonathan Gonzalez dismantled the durable Jaison Palomeque. Middleweight Skyler Thompson did not make Henry Coyle’s job easier, though Coyle took the decision. Jose Romero, Fred Bowen, Trinidad Garcia and Ramiro Bueno Jr. engaged in crowd-pleasing battles to open the evening. Adrian Granados got off to a rough start before finding the path to victory over Carlos Winston Velasquez. Andrzej Fonfara demolished Samuel Miller in crowd-pleasing fashion. The main event got off to a slow start and never really got heated before being stopped for medical reasons to give Krzysztof “Diablo” Wlodarczyk the TKO victory—despite somewhat cautious performances from both cruiserweights, the Pro-Wlodarczyk crowd was ready to stand by their man, and they could not have been happier with the outcome.
The main event featured a 12-round WBC Cruiserweight Championship between defending champion Krzysztof “Diablo” Wlodarczyk (49-2-1, 34 KOs, 199 lbs.) of Poland and Italy’s Giacobbe “Gabibbo” Fragomeni (31-4-2, 12 KOs, 198 lbs.), hoping to regain the title he lost to Wlodarczyk in their second fight, after the two fought to a draw in their first outing.
