HAMMOND, IN, February 16, 2013 — Hitz Boxing’s Fight Night at the Horseshoe Casino featured an evening of local prospects slugging it out, including, in the main event, a return bout between Middleweights David Thomas of Evansville, IN and Lithuanian Donatas Bondorovas, now residing in Chicago. In their last outing at the same venue, Bondorovas won by second round TKO, after the referee stepped in to save Thomas, who felt the stoppage was early. The card also featured impressive displays from Bantamweight amateur standouts Johnny Determan and Adan Ortiz showing their strength in separate bouts, tough guy Dimar Ortuz trying to impose his will on Grover Young, and Michael Walker and Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez taking on each other at Super Middleweight. Rounding out the evening were Russell Fiore taking on Anthony Linsenfelser at Lightweight, Felix Abner and David Martin III in a hard-fought Heavyweight fight, and new prospects Jimmy Murphy, Tremaine Pride and Nick Ramirez seeking to improve their early-career records with mixed results.

Both boxers exhibited solid skills in the first round, popping sharp jabs and landing powerful rights. Bondorovas’ ability to get inside Thomas’s guard with powerful rights shots gave him the round.
