Rajon Chance & Jahyae Brown Shine In Front
Of Packed House At Jersey City Fight Night
On Saturday night, fans packed White Eagle Hall for the
thrilling debut of Star Boxing’s “Jersey City Fight Night.”
The event was a unique thriller with fight action from start
to finish combined with a unique melting pot atmosphere,
live DJ entertainment and Star Boxing distinctiveness, all
of which had fans buzzing from the start of the event
through the end of the night.
In the main event, RAJON “PICASSO” CHANCE had the crowd in
an uproar as he put on an artistic masterpiece against
veteran MARTIN DIAZ of Nicaragua. From the opening bell,
Chance was in command, and eventually put Martin down with
snapping right hand. Martin beat the count, but Chance’s
offensive prowess proved to be too quick and powerful.
Chance dropped Martin again after an onslaught late in the
first round causing Martin’s corner to call off the fight.
Chance improved to 8-0-1 6KO’s after an emphatic victory in
his Star Boxing banner debut.
In the co-feature, undefeated super welterweight JAHAYAE
“GOLDEN CHILD” BROWN, and DENIS “BILLABONG” OKOTH, took home
fight of the night honors in a thrilling, back-and-forth
battle. Brown had the faster hands, but for what Okoth
lacked in speed, he made up for it with heart, determination
and mechanics, consistently answering Brown’s offensive
exertions with his own. The sixth was pure madness
punctuated by a perfectly timed Okoth right hand that buzzed
Brown. In sensational action, Brown responded with an
uppercut that had Okoth falling backward on unsteady legs.
While the game Okoth had many moments, Brown continued to
get the best of the exchanges. Brown improved to 13-0 9KO’s
with a unanimous decision victory (80-72, 79-73, 78-74).
Paterson heavyweight, NORMAN NEELY wasted no time getting
back in the win column with an evident strategy from the
opening bell - seek and destroy. Neely barely allowed
Bedwell to step foot in the ring before he pounced. Bedwell,
tried to weather the storm, looking to land one big overhand
right, but it never came. Neely dropped Bedwell twice before
Bedwell’s corner stopped the fight. Neely improved to 14-1
9KO’s with the first round TKO victory.
In the opening bout of the evening, LOUIS “IL MARTELLO”
MAIETTA and LEVAN LOUTSOUPITZE put on an exciting
performance for the crowd. Maietta, a NYC Fireman, had
perhaps his best performance to date as he fought
effectively using his jab and working the body well in the
winning effort. Maietta improved to 2-3-1 with a unanimous
decision victory (40-36 x2, 39-37).
