One of the best cards in recent Philadelphia history plus much talked about Adamek – Estrada Heavyweight clash highlights a tremendous weekend of boxing on

NEW YORK, February 8, 2010 — This past weekend two big boxing events on the east coast took place and the action was as hot inside the ring as it was cold outside.  Despite blizzard conditions, crowds in Philadelphia and Newark saw two incredible nights of boxing that started out on Friday from The Legendary Blue Horizon in Philadelphia where USBA Jr. Middleweight champion Derek “Pooh” Ennis scored a fifth round stoppage over Edwin Vazquez.

The next night in Newark, New Jersey, former Light Heavyweight and Cruiserweight champion Tomasz Adamek scored a unanimous decision victory over former U.S. Olympian Jason Estrada in Adamek’s second start as a Heavyweight.  That bout was fought before an astonishing crowd of over 10,000 fans in the Prudential Center in Newark.

Both great events were streamed live and are now available on-demand on


In the main event, USBA Jr. Middleweight champion Derek “Pooh” Ennis tuned up for a spring title defense by dropping Edwin Vazquez twice in round five with a vicious body assault to score a knockout  at 1:26 of that round in their scheduled eight round non title clash.

Ennis showed tremendous hand speed and clearly worked the body behind a solid jab.  Vazquez showed a lot of heart and determination as he would not only mock Ennis but try to start some offense for himself. 

In round five, Ennis dropped Vazquez with a blistering left to the body and moments later he did the same thing to the other side of Vazquez’ body with the right and the fight called off.

In one of the most anticipated undercard bouts, Former World Junior Amateur champion Joey Dawejko of Philadelphia needed just forty-seven seconds to dispose of Ricardo Johnson.

Dawejko landed a perfect counter right hand that thrilled the crowd that was heavily supporting the nineteen year old from the Tacony section of town.

Dawejko is now 2-0.

Former U.S Olympic alternate, Eric “The Outlaw” drilled out former world title challenger Roberto Bonilla at the end of round one of their scheduled six round featherweight bout.

Hunter dominated the action with blazing handspeed until a left to the live put Bonilla down and out at end of the first stanza.

In the fight of the night, Jackie Davis scored a four round unanimous decision over Melisenda Perez in a ladies four round war.

The two traded shots and thrilled the crowd and the fighters received standing ovations throughout the fight.

Swedish heavyweight Andreas Gustafson moved to 4-0 with a stoppage over Levay King at the end of round two of their scheduled four round bout.

Ronald Cruz scored an impressive third round knockout over the experienced Martinus Clay in a scheduled six round bout.



Some are calling it controversial; some think the right decision was rendered; now you can be the judge as former Light Heavyweight and Cruiserweight champion Tomasz Adamek battled former U.S. Olympian in a an action filled Heavyweight bout that had a crowd of over 10,000 fans on the edge of their seats at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

It was a close knit battle where both combatants had their moments. But it was Adamek who gained the unanimous decision win and he may now be in position for an April 24th showdown with former world title challenger Chris Arreola.

Estrada was irate at the decision and now the fans all over the world will be able to give their opinion when they order this terrific Heavyweight scrap.

Fans can also witness a terrific three fight undercard that was headlined by undefeated New York based Middleweight, Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin make his return to the squared circle when he takes on veteran Fernando Zuniga.

Two of New Jersey’s better undefeated prospects in Middleweight Patrick Majewski and Dennis “Mamma’s Boy” Douglin were impressive in separate bouts.
