HAMMOND, IN, October 2, 2010 — Despite the absence on the card of several scheduled bouts, there was still plenty of action on tap for Hitz Boxing’s appropriately titled “Irish Invasion” show on October 2 at The Venue at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, IN.  Numerous changes left spectators with just five bouts, but there were enough fireworks for a longer evening.

Irish middleweight Andy Lee, from Detroit’s Kronk Gym via Limerick, headlined against veteran Troy Lowry, returning to the ring in short order after defeating Michael Walker by 8th round TKO on September 17 at the UIC Pavilion. The 40-year old Lowry, who had faced contenders such as Peter Quillin, Matt Vanda and Yuri Foreman, could not find an answer for the Irish southpaw, going down five times en route to being stopped at the end of the fourth round.  Chicago-based Irish super middleweight Henry Coyle returned to the ring to continue his quest to get back into contention, winning his second bout since a disappointing loss against the experienced Neil Sinclair in his home country. Unlike his last outing, which saw him win after a second round arm injury forced his opponent to quit, Coyle’s foil on this occasion, Mustafah Johnson, would not give up, leaving Coyle using all his weapons to stay inside the taller man’s range. Welterweight John Lewus looked for his third win of the year at The Venue in his quest to make up for lost time after a layoff of over a decade, but came up just short. Former Chicago Golden Gloves champion and fan favorite David Latoria faced his stiffest test to date as a professional and passed with flying colors. Rounding out the card, bantamweight Jeremias Correa made his successful professional debut against the more experienced but unimpressive Harvey Phillips. (continue reading…)
