Winchester Bombs Out Robbins In North Carolina

J. R. Jowett reporting from ringside: It was short and sweet on a hot night July 21, as a spirited gathering of about 200 witnessed a half dozen quick belt-outs. Former journeyman boxer Marcus Luck, who fought a number of big-name pros during his career, put the show together under Lucky Punch Promotions. The competition at the Wentworth Armory wasn’t quite the caliber normally expected in the Northeastern cities, but as a small community promotion, why not? This is where many of the opponents who journey to points north come from, generally to lose, but sometimes win!


The main event was a scheduled six in which Jamie Winchester, 158, Waynesboro, VA, 15-4 (5), took out Vinson Robbins, 161, York, SC, 3-12-2 (3), in 0:53 of the third. The rangy visitor moved well, but was unable to deal with being trapped and taking a shot. Winchester landed some bail-out punches in a generally cautious first. In round two, he had his opponent covering up in a corner, cracked a right to the ribs and then doubled it to the head, and Robbins went down. Vinson boxed his way out of it, but a round later, was doubled over on the ropes when a short right dropped him again. He failed to beat the count.


In a scheduled four, Juiseppe Cusumano, 225, Danville, VA, 4-1 (3), took out debuting Deon Broadnax, 289, Reidsville, NC, in 2:55 of round one. Broadnax was big and broad, all right, but not in great shape. The tall, standup Cusumano quickly spun him around with a long right face-first into a turnbuckle, where referee Bill Clancy gave him a standing count. Under attack, Deon then turned and tried to walk away to safety. Cusumano threw a right, Deon saw it out of the corner of his eye and dived to the canvas for safety, as the punch whizzed overhead. No knockdown. Finally, when Deon’s left knee buckled and he looked like he didn’t want to continue, Clancy decided, in the words of Popeye, “enough is too much.”



Miguel Santander, 148, Havana via Miami, 2-0 (1), stopped an unprepared Christopher Baynes, 146, Reidsville, in his debut, at 2:43 of the second of four. When attacked, Baynes spun around and ran with his back to the cautious Santander. He was given a standing eight when getting whacked in the second, before Clancy rescued him. In other fours, Jon Bolden, 244, Newport News, 4-4 (4), KO’d debuting Brandon Bowen, 249, Wilson, NC, in 2:02 of round one. Nat Heaven, 248, Ocala, FL, 2-0 (2), belted out Schuyler Marshall, 302, Wilson, in 2:33 of round two. And Dave Fleming, 248, Troy, NY, 2-0 (1), KO’d debuting Anthony Graf, 209, Long Beach, NY, at 2:02 of the second. 


Celebrity guest was Hall of Famer Don Elbaum, who was there with his prospect, Cusumano. Al Coley was alternate referee, while Cathy Leonard, Joel Dovenbarger and Cy Evans proved superfluous as judges. Sponsors tend to lose interest, so local fans should take advantage of these little grassroots cards while they may.
