Fight Day On The Delaware
By Ken Hissner (June 12, 2010) Doghouse Boxing  
Possibly for the first time in over 30 years boxing returns on a Sunday to Pennsylvania! Joey Eye Promotions In Association with Gulfstream Group Sports and Entertainment Promotions presents Aaron Pryor, Jr., 13-2 (10), of Cincinnati against Willis “Spoiler” Lockett, 12-9-5 (5), Tacoma Park, MD, in a super middleweight 8 round main event. Pryor has a win over 2000 Olympian Dante Craig while Lockett has a draw with Chuck Mussaschio. The co-feature will have Ossie Duran, 24-8-2 (9), from Ghana, now residing in Paterson, NJ, and a former Commonwealth champion against Jerome Ellis, 12-11-2 (10), the former Bahama light middleweight champion, now out of Coconut Creek, FL, in an 8 round light middleweight bout. Ellis defeated Philadelphia’s Jamaal Davis here in 2009.

Don Elbaum, the matchmaker, originally from Erie, PA, had a hand in the last fight on a Sunday in Erie when then WBA lightweight champion Roberto Duran defended his title against Erie’s Lou Bizzaro. Elbaum has put together a solid undercard of four additional fights.

In a 6 round cruiserweight match Reading’s southpaw Julio Cesar Matthews, 9-0 (5), will be up against Philadelphia’s upset minded Garrett Wilson, 7-4 (2), which could be a show stealer. In a 4 round cruiserweight match Patrick Farrell, 5-0 (3), Jersey City, NJ, takes on Kamarah Pasley, 4-4 (2), of Philadelphia. Farrell is leaving his home area for the first time. Pasley had his four bout win streak stopped by Matthews and is looking to rebound.

Sweden’s Andreas Gustafsson, 4-0 (2), returns to Philadelphia in a 4 round heavyweight match against Pedro Martinez, 5-2 (3), of Philadelphia. Rounding out the car will be Jason Escalera, 8-0 (7), a super middleweight from Union City, NJ, who they are still seeking an opponent for.

The legendary Aaron “The Hawk” Pryor will join his son on Sunday after having attended the IBHOF in New York. The show will be held at the Hyatt Regency Penns Landing, with doors opening at 1:00pm and First Bout at 2:00pm.
