Chalmers stopped durable veteran Edward "NUCKIE" Anderson in the second round of their contest. The normally durable Anderson had no answers for the sharp southpaw Chalmers who impressed onlookers with his strong knockout performance.
Robertson made his pro debut a memorable one as he landed a big right hand on Canton, Ohio's John Stallings midway through the first round. Stallings was tough, and even though on shaky legs, fought back bravely. Another booming right hand by Robertson did the trick as referee Fred T. Corritone waived off the bout at about the two minute mark of the first round. Robertson gets the win in his pro debut while Stallings' mark now stands at 1-2, 1KO.
Several ringside fans called it, "The most exciting one minute fight they have ever seen!" as "J-WOOD" Jennifer Wood made her pro debut a successful one by stopping Wilson, NC's Shanna Allen at the one minute mark of the first round.

In the midst of the action, Wood snuck in a short right hand that dropped Allen hard for the ten count. Allen was unconscious for about two minutes but thankfully came to her senses in short order. Lynchburg's Jennifer Wood successful in her pro debut goes to 1-0, 1KO while Shanna Allen falls to 0-2.

Ortiz dropped Hopkins in the fourth round with another right, but a game and bloody Hopkins rose to beat the count, fight back hard, and finish the fight on his feet. Hopkins loses for the first time in his career is now 4-1. Ortiz, fighting for the first time in eight years, appears to be well rested and energized after his layoff. Much better than his record would indicate, Ortiz is now a very deceptive 2-5-1.
