Bryant outpoints Saunders

Late replacement Rowland Bryant (18-3, 12 KOs) won a one-sided unanimous eight-round decision over veteran Pittsburgh light heavyweight Rayco “War” Saunders (23-23-2, 10 KOs) in last night’s main event on the “KO Kings of Tomorrow” card, presented by Iron Mike Productions (IMP), at Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

In the co-feature, Kyrgyzstan bantamweight Timur “Here Comes Trouble” Shailezov (17-7, 4 KOs) upset previously undefeated Miguel “No Fear” Cartagena (12-1, 5 KOs), fighting out of Philadelphia. Shailezov dropped Cartagena once and damaged his opponent’s nose so severely that Cartegena’s corner requested the fight be halted in the third round.

IMP featherweight prospect Dennis Galarza (3-0, 2 KOs) stole the show, turning in a superlative performance, punctuated by a devastating knockout of overmatched Mexican invader Abraham Rubio (4-4, 1 KO) at 1:12 of the opening round.

In other undercard fights, Lancaster, PA lightweight Rolando Chinea (7-0-1, 4 KOs) kept his unbeaten record intact with a six-round unanimous decision over Ronnie Reams (4-4, 1 KO), York, PA lightweight pitched a near shutout taking a six-round decision from Carlos Lopez (4-4), Easton, PA welterweight Arthur Trujillo improved to 5-0 (3 KOs) with a third round stoppage of Kevin “The Scarecrow” Womack (4-5-1, 2 KOs), and Reading, PA junior middleweight Erik Spring (1-0) won his professional debut by way of a four-round split decision versus Lionel Charles (0-2).
