ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, November 23, 2011 — Hitz promotions offered up a Thanksgiving Eve treat for fight fans at the ritzy Belvedere this evening. The event featured a trim Johnny Lewus taking on St. Paul’s Allen Litzau in a six-round main event, former UFC fighter Terry Martin looking to keep his boxing record perfect in his fifth fight, undefeated Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez taking on the more experienced James Denson, a battle of local rivals Gerald Taylor and Bruce Rumbolz and the professional debut of Chicago Golden Gloves Super Heavyweight Champion Erick Correa.

Starting off the evening, Chicago’s Terry Martin (203.5 lbs., 5-0, 5KO’s) tested the boxing skills he has been developing under renowned trainer Sam Colonna against the overmatched Thomas “TNT” Boose (208 lbs., 0-5) of Rockford, IL, in a heavyweight bout. The bout began with an exchange of jabs, with Boose using his superior reach to land a few more shots. The first telling blow of the bout arrived in the form of a left hook from Martin midway through the first round. While the pace was by no means blistering, Martin was more effective in mixing up his shots, bloodying Boose’s nose. A right hook to the body and a short overhand right foretold the eventual end, which came at 2:59 of the first when Martin landed a hook to Boose’s ribcage and followed up with a right to the chin that toppled Boose, who staggered to his feet, but not in time to keep Referee Celestino Ruiz from calling the knockout. Boose took the loss gracefully and Martin keeps his win and knockout record intact. (continue reading…)
