Jerry Glick reporting from ringside: Will Rosinsky, won a close decision to take the vacant New York State lightheavyweight belt with a unanimous ten over tough Sacramento, CA resident, Otis Griffin, 174, on a Broadway Boxing show at New York’s Roseland Ballroom in Midtown that help to raise money for the Red Cross to aid hurricane Sandy victims.
At least the fighter from New York won the title.
Rosinsky, 174, suffered a damaged left eye that started bleeding as early as round one. By the fourth frame it was apparent that it was beginning to swell. The fight was a rugged, seesaw battle that could have gone either way. Rosinsky, from Queens, NY, tried to make it an inside fight, but the rangy Griffin, did his best to catch him on the way in. The Judges scored it 96-94 twice and 97-93 all for Rosinsky. The winner improved to 17-2 (9 KOs), while the loser fell to 24-11-2 (10 KOs).
