In the main event, Dominican Ricardo Garcia, 14-3-1, 9 KOs, and North Philly’s Tyrone Crawley Jr., 7-1-1, fought to an eight round draw in their junior welterweight fight for the WBF title belt on Friday night at Philadelphia’s Sugar House Casino.
Garcia had the edge on my scorecard, but only led on one of the official tallies after eight rounds. The other two judges had the fight 76-76, making the result a majority draw. The nine bout card was promoted by Marshall Kauffman’s Kings Promotions.
In the co-feature bout, Eric Moon, 8-1, 6 KOs, came from Marietta, GA and upset Philly’s Christopher Brooker, 13-6, 5 KOs, in their eight round super middleweight fight. The action was two-way, but Moon landed the more telling blows, hurting Brooker more than once. Moon built an early lead and stayed ahead when Brooker stepped on the gas late in the bout. Moon captured the decision by scores of 78-74 and 77-75 twice. Continue reading “Crawley-Garcia battle to a draw”
