CHICAGO, IL, December 16, 2011 — In the final card of the year, 8 Count Productions continued its tradition of introducing promising fighters to Chicago fight fans, featuring a number of prospects and the pro debut of 2011 Chicago Golden Gloves Champion Paul Littleton. The event was packed with explosive action, with the young boxers seeming to vie for who could achieve the quickest knockout. Andrzej Fonfara gave his fans what they were shouting for, and middleweights Viktor Polyakov and Foster Nkodo showed the grit that brought them to a showdown of undefeated prospects.

The first fight of the evening featured Oakland, Tennessee’s Curtis Lee Tate (252 lbs.,3-3, 3 KO’s) against Hannibal, Missouri’s Lance Edward Gauch (280 lbs., 3-4, 3KO’s) in a four-round heavyweight bout that promised not to go the distance, given the knockout records of the participants. The first round started slow, with Tate finding his range with a jab. When Gauch started countering with uppercuts, the fighters switched to some inside fighting. Tate seemed to have the sharper punches at the outset, but Gauch began looking for and finding targets, especially for his heavy right hand. Near the end of the round, Gauch’s punches began to take their toll, though Tate rallied at the end. (continue reading…)

by on Feb.17, 2010, under Boxing News, Press Releases

event_main_img2MERRILLVILLE, IN, February 17, 2010 – Training injuries have hit two of the fighters for “Fight Night 2010.” Shay Mobley had incurred an injury this last week during training for his upcoming bout with Darnell Wilson removing Mobley from the bout. When I asked about the fight, Mobley stated, “I was really looking forward to getting back in the ring this year, but I will continue to keep my head up and recover and get ready for the next event.” Due to Mobley’s injury, undefeated Middleweight Orphius Waite (5-0, 3KO’s) will take Mobley’s place against Wilson (8-1, 6KO’s).

Waite, who is coming off an ankle injury that removed him from the One In A Million Boxing Nov. 13th Fight Card, jumped at the opportunity to fight, “I stay in the gym ready to fight for just this kind of situation, if I guy falls out I am ready to go on a day’s notice if I need to. Wilson is going to be a very tough opponent, but that’s what I am here to do is to prove that I am the best and beating Wilson who is (8-1) is a great sign I am on my way.” (continue reading…)
