Raheem is scheduled to headline Battle at the Boat 93 in August at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, WA against an opponent to be determined.
In the semi-main event, Gabriel Pineda and Dave Petryck slugged it out for the scheduled six rounds and kept the fight at a high pace from start to finish. Pineda and Petryck both stayed inside and were relentless in their attempt to outbox one another. At the end of six rounds the fight went to the scorecards where one judge favored Pineda every round (60-54) while the other two scored the fight 59-55 in favor of Pineda giving the Hillsboro, OR resident the unanimous decision victory and improving his record to 4-0-2.
Controversy surrounded the hyped undercard fight between Zach Cooper (2-0) and Charon Spain (0-2). Cooper looked to control the entire fight landing haymakers that phased Spain, but Spain showed a great chin as he never went to the canvas. At the end of four rounds, Cooper seemed to have victory locked up, but the judges disagreed. One judge gave the fight to Cooper (40-36) while the other two judges scored the fight 38-38 resulting in a majority draw.
