CHICAGO, IL, December 16, 2011 — In the final card of the year, 8 Count Productions continued its tradition of introducing promising fighters to Chicago fight fans, featuring a number of prospects and the pro debut of 2011 Chicago Golden Gloves Champion Paul Littleton. The event was packed with explosive action, with the young boxers seeming to vie for who could achieve the quickest knockout. Andrzej Fonfara gave his fans what they were shouting for, and middleweights Viktor Polyakov and Foster Nkodo showed the grit that brought them to a showdown of undefeated prospects.

The first fight of the evening featured Oakland, Tennessee’s Curtis Lee Tate (252 lbs.,3-3, 3 KO’s) against Hannibal, Missouri’s Lance Edward Gauch (280 lbs., 3-4, 3KO’s) in a four-round heavyweight bout that promised not to go the distance, given the knockout records of the participants. The first round started slow, with Tate finding his range with a jab. When Gauch started countering with uppercuts, the fighters switched to some inside fighting. Tate seemed to have the sharper punches at the outset, but Gauch began looking for and finding targets, especially for his heavy right hand. Near the end of the round, Gauch’s punches began to take their toll, though Tate rallied at the end. (continue reading…)

CHICAGO, IL, May 20, 2011 – 8 Count Productions stormed the UIC Pavilion with an exciting evening of fights highlighted by an explosive bout between Andrzej “The Polish Prince” Fonfara and the durable Canadian Anthony Russell for the WBO and NABO Light Heavyweight titles. Other highlights of the stacked card included a messy Indiana showdown between Middleweights Josh Crouch and Keon Johnson; a rematch between Jaime Herrera (coming off his first loss) and Eric Draper, out to avenge his loss to Herrera in their first outing; and the Windy City Fight Night debut of undefeated Middleweight Ninos Abraham.

The first match of the evening marked the professional debut of Chicagoan Juan Bustamante (132 lbs.) in a Lightweight battle that would go the distance.  Facing him was scrappy Puerto Rican Jose “El Gallo” Rivera (130 lbs.), who did not come all the way from Ocala, Florida, to lose. Both boxers fought emotionally at times, with bad intentions evident in the hard exchanges. Rivera launched the first attack of the round, but Bustamante came back moments later, pushing Rivera back. The majority of the round was spent with both boxers fighting inside, launching punishing hooks to the body, most of which bounced off arms and elbows, to try to find a home for uppercuts and hooks to the head. Neither gave the other many opportunities to do so, but Bustamante was the busier of the two. (continue reading…)

CHICAGO, September 17, 2010 – An estimated 2,000 fans cheered.  Tonight, Ireland by way of Detroit, Michigan’s Andy Lee (162 lbs., 22-1, 16 KO’s) showed flashes of brilliance and took another step closer to the upper echelons of boxing, as he halted Chicago’s rugged Michael “The Midnight Stalker” Walker (19-4-2, 12 KO’s) at the UIC Pavilion.    

Wearing the red Kronk boxing trunks trimmed in gold and trained by the Kronk legendary trainer, Emmanuel Stewart – the one who seems to specialize in redeeming taller, standup European boxers like Lennox Lewis and Wladimir Klitschko – Lee towered over the ebony hued Walker who stalked around the ring in white with black trim, sporting the initials “OIM” (One in a Million Boxing of Merrillville, Indiana).   (continue reading…)
