Ringside by Scott Ploof and Billy “Loops” Luppert

WBA rated #6 super middleweight Joey “The KO Kid” Spina (26-1-2, 18 KOs) defeated Antwun Echols (32-15-4, 28 KOs) in the main event on Saturday night at the Fox Theatre inside of the Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Mashantucket, CT. Echols, who took the fight on 48 hours notice after the original opponent “Sucra” Ray Oliveira did not clear his medicals, looked sharp early but was knocked down after a left hook from Spina landed just after the bell rang to end the second round. Spina continued to land punches and after several hard shots, the fight was stopped by referee Johnny Callas at 49 seconds of round three. The eight bout fight card was promoted by Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Entertainment and Sports.
Providence, RI super middleweight Vladine Biosse (9-0, 4 KOs) put on a dominant performance over his opponent Ariel Espinal (8-16-3, 4 KOs) in the six round co-feature of the evening. Biosse used his speed to outwork, outmaneuver, and outland the larger Espinal. Scores of the bout were a perfect shutout for Biosse, 60-54 on all cards.
David Bauza had almost every advantage over Jeremy Wood (0-2), and he used all of them to outclass Wood en route to a four round shutout. Bauza (6-0, 4 KOs) kept his perfect record alive as all three judges scored the bout 40-36 in his favor.
Super lightweight Edwin Soto (5-0-1, 2 KOs) kept his unbeaten record intact as he won a four round decision over the much taller Trenton Titsworth (3-10-1, 2 KOs). Scores of the bout were 40-36 twice and 39-37 all in favor of Soto.
Greg McCoy (2-1-1, 1 KO) scored the first knockout of his career after landing a barrage of unanswered punches on Woonsocket, RI’s Reynaldo Rodriguez (5-2, 2 KOs). McCoy knocked Rodriguez down twice in the fight, once late in round two and again in round three. Referee Dick Flaherty stopped the fight after Rodriguez was unable to defend himself at 2:41 of round three.
