The always exciting, undefeated prospect Daniel Gonzalez (11-0-1 5KO Woodhaven, NY) stopped the very tough Carlos Aguilera (10-17 4KO Chiapas, Mexico) at the end of round 5 of a scheduled 8 round Jr. Welterweight battle. Gonzalez took a couple of rounds to figure out his taller, southpaw opponent but once he did he turned up the heat as the two fighters exchanged freely in toe to toe action. Gonzalez’s firepower proved too much for Aguilera as Gonzalez systematically broke him down and unloaded some heavy artillery on his overmatched foe. Referee Pat Sullivan called a halt to the action at the end of round 5.
Patrick Day (12-2-1 6KO Freeport, NY) made his Paramount debut an exciting one as he and Courtney Pennington (8-4-1 4KO Brooklyn, NY) engaged in a pier six brawl. When the dust settled it was Day who came away with a 59-55, 59-55, and 58-56 decision win in this 6 round Jr. Middleweight fight.
In a pairing of outstanding amateurs, Michael Stoute (2-0 Corham, NY) came away with a very close majority decision over debuting Jonel Lorenzo (0-1 Jersey City, NJ) by scores of 39-36 on two cards and 38-38 on the third card in a 4 round Super Bantamweight contest. Both fighters fought extremely well in this fast moving fight and both had their moments but Stoute’s accuracy was the difference maker.
