CASTILLO ELECTRIFIES BROOKLYN CROWD WITH EIGHTEEN SECOND KNOCKOUT

BROOKLYN, NY (April 4, 2011)—Saturday night at the Aviator Sports Complex, an enthusiastic crowd witnessed an action packed boxing that was promoted by Rob Diaz and Havoc Boxing Promotions.

In the main event, Joel Castillo wasted no time in destroying Billy Ray Cunningham in a bout that was scheduled for six rounds in the Light Heavyweight division.

Castillo came out and landed one crushing left hook that knocked Cunningham down and out which had the near capacity crowd screaming.

Castillo now is 8-0 with five knockouts.

In the co-feature, Jr. Lightweight Mark Davis remained perfect as he used a vicious body attack to score a stoppage over rugged Ramesis Gil at the end of five rounds in their scheduled six round bout.

Leon Moore, who is ranked number-three by the WBC in the Super Bantamweight division, was workmanlike in scoring a six round unanimous decision over grizzled vet Felipe Almanza

Other winners on the card included undefeated Heavyweight Ramadan Yasser; Undefeated Jr. Middleweight Frank Galarza; Welterweight Tommy Rainone and undefeated Middleweight DonYil Livingston.

Angel Cruz scored a sensational unanimous decision victory over Yonathan Arias in a six round Bantamweight bout that will be on a short list for fight of the year.
