Rosta, Jauregui, and Cordova Victorious at Fairground Throw Down in New Castle


On a perfect evening under the clear night sky, the big crowd that had gathered at the grandstand at the Lawrence County Fair in New Castle finally got what many had been waiting for as Dalton Rosta entered the ring to an echo of cheers that was sure to have resonated through the whole fairground.

Rosta, 21, the hometown native who trains in Youngstown at the Downtown Boxing Club, did not disappoint the crowd as he put the pressure on his opponent, Loyd Reid of Pittsburgh early and often their 199-pound contest as he dropped his early in the opening round with a barrage of punches to the head.

With momentum clearly on his side, Rosta kept the pressure on before eventually dropping Reid for good with a massive left hook in the closing moments of the second round as the referee in charge waived off the fight as Reid looked unsteady despite beating the referees count. 

With the victory, Rosta improves his amateur boxing record to 3-0 while also boasting a perfect 2-0 record in MMA. 

The first fight of the event which was billed as the Fairground Throw Down saw Juan Jauregui of Southside Boxing Club out-work his opponent, Shamus Stanton of Pittsburgh in their 65-pound bout.

Jauregui used a solid first round which saw him land a series of punches to build confidence through the remainder of the fight to cement his first career victory.

Also walking away with a victory from Youngstown was Nate Cordova of Burnside Boxing.

Cordova sealed his victory over Tysier Williams of Reading, PA in their 135-pound match with a massive third round which saw Cordova land massive blows on two separate forcing the referee to give Williams a standing eight-count.
