HAMMOND, IN, June 8, 2013 — Fres Oquendo did not make good on his prediction of ending fellow-Puerto Rican Heavyweight Derric Rossy’s evening early in the Main Event of Fight Night at the Horseshoe, presented by Bobby Hitz June 8 at The Venue at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, IN. Though his performance was enough for him to hang onto his WBA Fedelatin as well as winning the NABA and WBC Silver Heavyweight Championships, he was not able to decisively impose his will on the younger Rossy through ten rounds. Hitz gave his fighters the chance to shine on the undercard, and they did, making for plenty of early-round knockouts. A few of the hired opponents did not recognize their roles, taking the house fighters the distance in entertaining scraps while others hung on longer than anyone could have predicted before tasting the canvas.

Sukhrab Shidaev (3-0, 2 KOs, 152.5 lbs.) of Grozny, Russia dominated Anthony Willis of Battle Creek, Michigan (1-3-1, 150.5 lbs.) at a catchweight of 152 pounds in the opening round. A powerful left hook from Shidaev began the bout. Though Willis demonstrated some power of his own, it was Shidaev who set the pace, stalking the American and mixing up punches to the head and body (with an occasional looping right to the back of Willis’s head). Shidaev timed Willis throughout the round and withstood Willis’s offense with an airtight defense. Shidaev’s left hooks to the body and head, combined with his wide but convincing right, were clearly taking their toll and Shidaev nearly ended the fight with another left hook to the head at the bell.
