Israeli soldier Ran Nakash (18-0, 14 KOs) was able to get inside the long reach of local favorite Dave Brunelli (8-5, 3 KOs) and open up a cut along Brunelli’s right eye that was deep enough for the ringside physician to call a halt to the fight. The scheduled eight round cruiserweight main event was stopped at 1:18 of round seven on Friday night at the jam-packed Blue Horizon in Philadelphia , PA. Nakash took the early rounds, but Brunelli was in the midst of a comeback when the bout was stopped. In the co-feature, Julius “Marvel” Edmonds upset Tyric “Too Sweet” Robinson by unanimous decision in a six round junior welterweight bout. The show was promoted by Vernoca Michael and Blue Horizon Boxing Promotions. Click here for the entire ringside report and photo gallery.

From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
