NUTLEY, NEW JERSEY, February 20, 2012 — This past Friday night at Nutley High School, Thomas “Cornflake” LaManna returned to his childhood home and scored a third round stoppage over Daniel Crabtree to highlight an eight bout card that was promoted by Gabe LaConte’s First Round Promotions.

That fight plus an explosive seven bout undercard that featured upsets and knockouts can now be seen on-demand on for just $9.99 by clicking:

LaManna and Crabtree waged a spirited battle with the taller LaManna fighting well from both the inside and working behind a solid jab.  Crabtree got in a few a hard shots that the twenty-year old LaManna walked through and even inspired him to go toe to toe.  In the pivotal third round LaManna landed a huge flurry of punches that had referee Randy Neumann stop the fight at 2:30 of round three.  The trainer of Crabtree then jumped in the ring and had a few heated words for Neumann.  Members from both camps tried to calm the situation before a near riot erupted in the ring before cooler heads prevailed.

LaManna is now 7-0 with five knockouts.

In the co-feature Richard Pierson returned from a year and a half hiatus by stopping Anibal Acevedo after the first round of a six round Super Middleweight bout.

Pierson dominated the action and landed a huge body shot at the end of the round.  Acevedo went back to his corner in excruciating pain and the bout was stopped.  Acevedo left the ring on a stretcher and was administered oxygen.

John Thompson remained perfect by scoring a stoppage over Laureno Laracuente after the third round of their four round Middleweight bout.

In a wild one round Heavyweight bout, John Lennox was shockingly sent to the deck just seconds into his six round bout with Miles Kelly.  Lennox then regrouped to drop and knockout Kelly just eighty three seconds into the bout.

Godson Noel made a successful pro debut with a first round stoppage over Satchell James.

In a Mild upset, Jonathan Garcia scored a majority decision over previously undefeated knockout artist Jose Javier Calderon
