Phoenix, AR (October 25th, 2015)– boxing card at Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona this past Friday revealed the two best choices for Real Combat Media Prospects of the Month in the United States for October 2015.
Light Heavyweight Samuel Clarkson, signed to Ronson Frank’s Uprising Promotions, is clearly on the rise to world class status. Unfortunately for his last three opponents, Clarkson has no respect for contenders and blue chip prospects expected to win. In the tradition of Ronald ‘Winky’ Wright, Clarkson, a 16-3 southpaw with 11 knockouts, Cedar Hill, Texas, has proven to be a stubborn power hitter who can both box and hit on the road. Clarkson came off the canvas to win an eight round split decision over Cedric Agnew, the top ranked contender who had just fought for the title against Sergey Kovalev. Then, twice on television, Clarkson knockout Jerry Odom and Lavarn Harvell, ruining their careers and putting himself in world class contention for a shot at Kovalev and Adonis Stevenson.
Heavyweight Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller, a 15-0-1 with 13 knockouts monster sized power hitter of considerably range and speed from Brooklyn, New York, wasted no time ending the career of hopeful Akhror Muralimov, knocking him out in three rounds on the same card.
Honorable mention for October 2015: 19-0 Zac Dunn, who won the IBO World Super Middleweight title by 10 round split decision over Derrick Findley in Huntington, Long Island, New York, his first bout outside of Australia; internationally 20-1 Chris Eubank Jr. of Brighton, England, winning the interim WBA World Middleweight title by stopping Tony Jeter in the second round in Sheffield. In the upset of the month (more so for the where and how it was accomplished than the who) experienced Gerard Ajetovic, 27-15-1, Belgrade, Serbia, stopped 11-0 Polish prospect and local favorite Michal Gerlecki in the tenth and final round to win the vacant Polish International light Heavyweight title in Poland. Four recent Ajetovic opponents had a combined record of 73-1. Ajetovic had the bout won on the cards with three Polish judges at the time of the stoppage, an impressive feat in Bialystok, Poland, where foreign fighters never win a round even when they do.
The mad hatter wins of the month go to 1-30-1 super featherweight Joe Beeden of Swindon, England, and 1-7-2 super welterweight Azamat Umarzoda, a Tajikistan fighter out of Las Vegas, Nevada, both of whom decided to win despite the odds against. The madhouse fight of the month award goes to the main event bout between super lightweights Idd Pialali and Jonas Segu of Tanzania in Dar-Es-Salaam, Tanzania on October 18, 2015, stopped due to a ruling of No-Contest. Referee Anthony Rule had to stop the fight in the seventh round because of unruly spectators. It appears there were numerous ongoing fights in the crowd over who should win the bout between the two local club fighters of greater interest than the bout itself in the ring! Goes the great Mike Melendez expression ‘Sh*t Happens’. These are the sort of great interest bouts which sell tickets, a local promoter’s dream. Amen.
