Last Friday night at the Little Creek Casino in Shelton, Washington, unbeaten Middleweight prospect Dominic Wade defeated former World Middleweight title holder Sam “King” Soliman via a close ten round split decision in a match-up that had major implications for the careers of both fighters. Headlining the TGB Prmotions, Showtime televised Shobox , Wade overcame the biggest challenge of his career in the tough and cagey Soliman, narrowly claiming the win.

As the fight got underway, both fighters got off to a slow start with Wade (18-0, 12 KOs 162.5 lbs.) looking to land from the outside and Soliman (44-13, 18 KOs 161.5 lbs.) maneuvering to get in close. The pace began to pick up in the second round as Soliman stepped up his aggression and started making it a rough fight. The crafty in-fighting of Soliman carried the second and third rounds as Wade slowed his connect rate, but in the fourth the momentum changed. Wade established his jab early in the fourth round and began to connect at range. Late in the round Wade scored a knockdown as the two came together, but it appeared it may have been a product of a push more than a punch. (continue reading…)

The Pacific Northwest’s top Super Middleweight prospect Mike Gavronski has been added to the June 26th line-up at the Little Creek Casino in Shelton, Washington. Gavronski will be part of the non-televised undercard of the Showtime ShoBox triple header promoted by TGB Promotions.

The card will be headlined by unbeaten Middleweight prospect Dominick Wade (17-0, 12KOs) taking on former IBF Middleweight Champion Sam Soliman (44-12, 1NC, 18KO’s) and is already stacked with a dozen fights featuring a number of boxing’s promising up and comers, but the addition of Gavronski will be of particular interest to local Northwest fight fans. The once beaten Tacoma native has built a following over the past few years and a number of them can be expected to make the short forty-five minute trek from the Seattle-Tacoma area to Shelton to support their fighter.  (continue reading…)

Jesus Cuellar Steals the Show on ‘Showtime Extreme’ with TKO Over Tamayo at the Little Creek Casino

Fast rising Argentinean power puncher Jesus Cuellar took another step up the featherweight ladder last Saturday night at the Little Creek Casino in Shelton, Washington. Showcasing his skills in the headline bout of Goossen Promotions’ Showtime Extreme quadruple-header, Cuellar scored an exciting fifth round TKO over tough Mexican challenger Ruben “El Canelito” Tamayo to defend his interim WBA featherweight title.

Cuellar (26-1 20KOs 126 lbs), of Buenos Aires, said before the bout he was looking to make a statement and, as the fight got underway, he certainly appeared to be working towards making that statement. The aggressive southpaw pressed from the outset, stepping in behind stiff right jabs and following up with hard combinations. He quickly set a fast pace to the bout, cutting the distance and pushing his opponent back. Tamayo (25-5-4 17KOs 124.8 lbs.), also a southpaw, met his opponent’s aggression with his own arsenal of punches, firing back as Cuellar got close and finding some success with short counter right hooks, but the tempo of the fight favored Cuellar and, although Tamayo made it an entertaining fight early on, Cuellar was clearly getting the better of most exchanges and winning rounds.
