HAMMOND, IN, May 29, 2010 — Hitz Boxing returned to Hammond, Indiana’s Horseshoe Casino with a packed card headlined by Montell ‘Ice’ Griffin entering the ring for his 58th bout in his quest for 50 wins against Buffalo, NY’s Ross ‘The Boss’ Thompson.  The ‘Quest for 50’ also featured a packed undercard of Chicago fighters, including Henry Coyle returning to the ring after an injury to face Danville, VA’s Marcus Luck, and Achour Esho looking to maintain his unbeaten record against Ann Arbor, MI, veteran Robert Jones in what would be the Fight of the Night. The event featured lots of action in small quantities, as most of the fights ended early. The Main Events were disappointing. There was a respectable crowd (given the fact that another card was taking place just a few miles away at the UIC Pavilion and the Blackhawks were playing in Game One of the Stanley Cup Finals). Hawks fans were mollified by the big screen broadcast of the game between bouts.

The first bout of the evening featured the Cruiserweight professional debut of Chicagoan Rafael Murphy (200 lbs.) against Covington, TN’s Quinton Smith (2-6-0, 0 KO’s, 201 lbs.). The slightly paunchy Smith came out strong and landed a few punches. However, Murphy withstood the first onslaught and countered. Smith charged in again, but with his head low, he found himself eating an uppercut, followed by a barrage of punches from Murphy, none of which he could not see to counter. Smith found himself on the canvas at :49 seconds into Round 1, and Referee Celestino Ruiz waved off the fight, giving Murphy his first professional victory by knockout.
