Rossy stops Droz!

This past Friday at Club Destiny in Orlando, Florida, heavyweight contender Derric “El Leon” Rossy (21-2, 12 KOs) scored a third round TKO over Moises Droz (13-8, 10 KOs) to capture the WBC Fecarbox heavyweight title. Rossy, a former Boston College football player, took charge from the opening round landing accurate punches to the head and body. As the fight continued, Rossy continued to apply pressure and mounted an all out assault in the beginning of the third round forcing the referee to halt the action.

After the bout Rossy went on to say, “I’ve learned a lot over the past year and I feel I’ll be ready to fight any of the top contenders in the heavyweight division. My goal is to get a big fight by the end of the year. I would love to fight Chris Arreola if he’s willing to step in with me.”

Rossy’s promoter Sal Musumeci agrees that a bout with Arreola makes sense as he stated, “Rossy is a Puerto Rican-American and Arreola is a Mexican-American. This type of match is what the fans are waiting to see. It’s rare to see two highly skilled Latin heavyweights do battle in the ring. The heavyweight division needs a fight like this to spice things up.”

In other action former “Contender” participant Alfredo Escalera Jr (18-2-1, 12 KOs) won a unanimous decision against Hilaro Guzman in a six round cruiserweight bout.

Heavyeight Bolo Wills scored a first round KO over Andrew Greeley, improving to (24-2-1, 18 KOs).

Flyweight Anthony Rodriguez improved to (8-0, 3 KOs) with a unanimous decision Kevin Hudgins.

Super Middleweight Richard Grant floored Danny Pastrana in the first round, improving to (3-3, 1 KOs).
