Rosta, Franklin Score Victories For Downtown Boxing Club at Ukrainian Hall

With what seemed to be a picturesque evening for amateur boxing under the stars in the side parking lot beside the St.'s Peter and Paul Ukrainian Orthodox Center suddenly turned into a knockout victory for mother nature as the last two fights of the evening was called because of the rain including a match in which Struthers native and former two-time KO Drugs tournament winner Mike Sullivan of Burnside Boxing Club was dominating before the match against Joshua Perkins of Akron was ruled a no contest.

The weather did hold off long enough for Dalton Rosta of Downtown Boxing Club to slug his way to a decision over Dalante Brady of Akron.  

Rosta was all over Brady from the opening bell dropping Brady to his knee in the opening round with a hard straight right.  Rosta continued to land monster shots and combinations in what turned out to be a very entertaining slugfest in the 190 weight class as Brady landed his share of blows as well.  

Also scoring a victory for Downtown Boxing Club was Rodell Franklin who annihilated Larry Davis from Cleveland. 

Franklin stunned Davis in the opening round with a combo which included a massive uppercut that earned Davis a standing eight count.

Davis fought his way into making things interesting in the clash of 190 pounders with a solid second round before Franklin put the pedal down in the third round and staggered Davis multiple times in the round on his way to the victory on the judge's scorecards.

Amateur boxing is scheduled to return to Youngstown on August 5th as the Palermo Center in Campbell will host the All-Star Boxing II show.
