“The New” Ray Robinson (17-2, 7 KOs) won the vacant USBA welterweight title with an electrifying stoppage of Ray “The Emperor” Nahr (26-3, 21 KOs) at 2:33 of the seventh round of the scheduled twelve round bout at the Bob Carpenter Center in Newark, Delaware. Robinson applied a brutal body attack before dropping Nahr twice in the seventh. Nahr got up, but Robinson unloaded a series of unanswered power shots on Nahr along the ropes, forcing referee Malik Waleed to stop the bout.

In the co-feature, Samuel “Unbelievable” Kotey Neequaye (21-0, 15 KOs) won the NABA lightweight title with a brutal ten round unanimous decision over defending champ “Dangerous” Dorin Spivey (42-7, 30 KOs). The bout was a war from the opening bell, with Neequaye landing a little bit more each round, and landing the more telling shots. Spivey was down briefly from a left early in round five, but he may have been off balance. The scores were 98-91, 97-92, and 96-93 in favor of Kotey Neequaye.

An estimated crowd of 1,500 witnessed the first-ever event at the venue, which is located on the campus of the University of Delaware.
