Dimar Ortuz (L) on his way to dismantling Daniel Adotey Allotey

HAMMOND, IN, June 20, 2014 — Though lacking a “name” headliner (Donovan George, who had been scheduled to headline, had to withdraw), Hitz Boxing’s Fight Night at the Venue at the Horseshoe Casino still featured some entertaining scraps as local boxers practiced their craft and faced some live opponents. Simon Buettner won a controversial Majority Decision over William Chouloute in a boxer/brawler matchup that tested both. Russell Fiore didn’t have much time to demonstrate his evolving style as he systematically dismantled Tim Carrizales before stopping him in the second. Will Coix weathered an early onslaught from the game but overmatched Thomas Amaro to dominate their battle en route to a TKO in the third. Antoine Knight showed more grit than he should have as Adan Ortiz proved his mettle at Featherweight with a technically proficient, explosive performance, showing that he could take some heavy shots as well as dishing them out as he scored a fourth round TKO. Heavyweight James Shorter took Nick Asberry into deep water, throwing punishing hooks from inside until the bigger Asberry finally found a way to keep his opponent at the end of his punches and finish him in the fourth. Frank Scalise landed a vicious left hook at will until he put away the hapless Justin Gauthier at the end of the first round. Headliner Dimar Ortuz broke down the heavy-handed but sluggish Ghanaian Daniel Adotey Allotey, never giving his bigger opponent the opportunity to launch a counter-offense until Allotey retired at the top of the fifth.
