JAMAICA, NEW YORK (August 14, 2012)—On Saturday night September 22nd, a historic night of boxing will take place as the FIRST EVER BOXING EVENT INSIDE A NEW YORK CITY CASINO when New Legend Boxing / Old World Boxing and W.O.N. Boxing Promotions presents a night of boxing featuring some of the best fighters in New York.

In the main event, popular Light Heavyweight Joe Smith Jr. will take on Yasin Rashid in a eight round bout.

Smith, twenty-two years old of Long Island has a record of 10-1 with all wins coming via knockout.

Smith, who turned pro in 2009, won his first six bouts inside of two rounds which included a knockout over undefeated Christopher Dammones. After suffering his lone blemish, Smith has come back by stopping his last four opponents which includes his last outing when he stopped James Denson in under two-minutes on May 17th.

Rashid, thirty-six years old of Brooklyn has a record of 7-2 with two knockouts and has been a pro for eight years.

Rashid won his first seven bouts which included a win over undefeated Kevin Cruz and Frank Mondejar (16-3). Rashid has really stepped it up in his last two bouts but came up a bit short in fights with Will Rosinsky (12-0) and Andy Mejias (9-0).

In the eight round co-feature, sensational Super Bantamweight prospect Juan Dominguez will see action against an opponent to be named.

Dominguez of Brooklyn via the Dominican Republic has been perfect as he sports a record of 10-0 with seven knockouts.

WBC Caribbean Bantamweight champion Elton Dharry (9-5-1, 4 KO’s) out of Queens, NY will take on Gabriel Cruz (4-4-1, 1 KO) of Oceanside, CA in a six round bout.

Appearing in six round bouts against opponents to be determined will be Jr. Middleweight Frank Galarza (7-0, 4 KO’s) of Brooklyn, Jr. Middleweight Captain Boyd Melson (9-1, 4 KO’s) of White Plains, NY as well as Super Featherweight Rafael Vazquez (8-0, 6 KO’s) out of Brooklyn.

Seeing action in four round bouts against opponents to be named will be Featherweight Angel Garcia (2-1, 2 KO’s) of Brooklyn, Featherweight Alan Phelan (0-1) of Queens, New York via Ireland and Vinny Celentano (3-0, 1 KO) of Howard Beach, NY.

Rosinsky loses decision to Pavlik

Posted on 01 August 2012 by felipe

Will Rosinsky found Kelly Pavlik had a bit more speed than he thought the comebacking Ohioan possessed, and that hand speed proved hard to handle for the Queens-based hitter, who dropped a unanimous decision on Saturday night in California.

Rosinsky, age 27, hoped that he’d surprise Pavlik — that he’d get overlooked as a no-name, and that he’d surprise the ex-middleweight champ with his skills. Well, Rosinsky showed off some skills, for sure, including some slick movement which Pavlik had a hard time with.

But the judges, in the end, gave Pavlik the nod, by scores of 98-91, 98-91, and 97-92. Now 16-2, Rosinsky got sent to the mat at the Home Depot Center in Round 2, but his defensive prowess carried him to the final bell against the 40-2 victor. After the supermiddleweight scrap, which was shown on HBO before a Nonito Donaire-Jeffrey Mathebula junior feather title fight, Rosinsky checked in with NYFightBlog.

“Congrats to Kelly on a great fight,” he said. “He didn’t have as much pop as I anticipated, but was a little quicker than he looks on TV and made good use of his left hand. I thought I did better than they had it on the cards but I take my hat off to him.”

He wasn’t down in the dumps after the loss. “It was a great experience for me,” Rosinsky said. “I will be back. My future is bright.”
