|Round Three Friday night at Harrah’s in Chester, PA
By Ken Hissner, Doghouse Boxing (June 3, 2011) Doghouse Boxing
Friday night Joey Eye Boxing and David
Feldman bring back their third show of the year to Harrah’s in
Chester, PA, just outside of the Philadelphia border. It looks like
another solid show with matchmaker Nick Tiberi featuring a rematch
between Philadelphia super featherweights Victor Vasquez, 12-5-1 (6),
and Gustavo Dailey, 4-11 (1). Don’t let Dailey’s record fool
“I took the first fight on short
notice like I usually do. This time I have had a month to get ready
and this time it’s going to be different,” said Dailey. They
fought a year ago in South Philly with Vasquez stopping Dailey in the
fifth. “I have a new trainer in Billy Briscoe and plenty of
sparring. I understand he (Dailey) is predicting to stop me in 3. I
don’t care what happened last time. He brings excitement to a
fight and so do I. It should be a good fight with plenty of my fans
there,” said Vasquez.
When Vasquez says plenty of fans we
know he means it. He has been a top drawing card in the city for
some time. His debut was in Reading and his next 16 fights in Philly
up until his last match in this same venue in Chester. He makes sure
his fans have access to his fights by even turning down Atlantic City
offers. This should be a very good fight.
In another 6 rounder it will be the
return of popular Philly’s light heavyweight Tony “Boom Boom”
Ferrante, 9-2 (4), whose last 2 fights have been out of the Philly
area will be facing Joe Park, 8-5 (6) in a 6 rounder. The rest of
the 5 matches featured are all 4 rounder’s with some of the best
prospects in the area starting with Angel “Razor” Ocasio, 4-0
(1), probably in his last 4 rounder. Being one of the most popular
boxer’s in and out of the ring in Philly, Ocasio’s team have
organized www.makboxing.com and are looking for a bright future for their star boxer.
Super Middleweight Fred Jenkins, 1-0
won his debut by knockout at Harrah’s in March and returns. Philly
middleweight Rashad Brown, 3-0 (1), makes his hometown debut.
Newark, DE, lightweight Joey Tiberi, 3-1 (3), whose only loss was at
Harrah’s in their first show in January returns to action after a
knockout win in Atlantic City. Making his debut will be Niam Nelson
at light welterweight in an all Philly match-up against Kywame Hill.
The first bout will be at 7:30PM.
