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…)

HAMMOND, IN – Built like a 5’ 7” ebony-hued bullfrog on steroids, Indiana super middleweight boxer fights with the subtlety of a blacksmith slamming his hammer down on an iron horseshoe, bludgeoning foes with brute, thudding force with a little science thrown in.

And thus before a lively crowd at the Hammond Civic Center, he dispatched fellow Chicagoan Miguel Hernandez in a rematch of a bout he’d won unanimously in May 2008.
