Main Event - 10 Rounds
TITLE: World Boxing Council (WBC) USNBC Welterweight Title
Nick DeLomba of Providence, R.I. vs. Jimmy Williams of New Haven, CT.
Williams has the height advantage. Jimmy wastes no time going for what he wants, that new green belt and setting up DeLomba with the jab and going for that belt. Nick already has a welt under his left eye. Right before the end of round 1 jab, jab, jab and Nick goes down for the count, right to the canvas. Williams is looking great in the ring. This is the best I’ve ever seen of Williams. Round 3 Williams lands a hook on Nick and wobbles him back but didn’t get the knockdown. Round 7 Williams landed right on the button and rocked DeLomba which woke the crowd up. Round 8. DeLomba taking a ton of punishment. I don’t know how he is still standing. Round 10 Nick is digging in deep to the body of Williams trying to knock the crap out of Williams. Williams kept working his jab and was very good at making this his fight.
Judges scored the bout 98-91; 97-92 and 97-92 all in favor of Williams and the NEW WBC USNBC Welterweight Champ. Williams increased to 13-0-1, 5 Kos and DeLomba 11-2, 2 Kos.

TITLE: New England Lightweight Title
Skilled Zack Ramsey of Springfield, Massachusetts who had a great amateur career and just got back from camp met up against undefeated Divante Jones of Augusta, Georgia. The first three rounds Ramsey didn’t engage at all. Mostly having defense but not too much engagement. Jones looked comfortable in the ring. Until the fourth round when I heard John Renaud shot from a distance “He aint on your level”, I turned and Zack woke up landed a right and Jones received the count. The fight continued and Zack backed up Jones to the ropes and landed an overhead right. Referee Joey Lupino stopped the bout at .58 into round 4 and the NEW New England Lightweight Champ is Ramsey. Ramsey increased to 8-1- 4 Kos. I heard the commands of John Renaud more than I heard his corner. Zack had a new trainer in his corner. Could this be the new Zack???
