Lawrence wins in Chester

CHESTER, PA (October 30, 2011)—This past Friday night, WBC #14 ranked Heavyweight in the world Franklin “Yah Yah” Lawrence dropped Raymond Ocheing three times in just over one round to score a second round stoppage in the main event of a card promoted by Joey Eye Boxing Promotions.

Lawrence dropped Ocheing two times in the final minute of round two and finished Ocheing off with a flurry that sent Ocheing down on the bottom rope just thirty-one seconds into round two and the fight was waved off.

After the bout, Lawrence called out every Heavyweight from Johnathan Banks to the Klitschko Brothers
In the co-feature, Derrick Webster remained undefeated in capturing the BAM Light Heavyweight title with an entertaining six round unanimous decision over Teneal Goyco.

Webster landed many precise combinations that offset the attempted big shots of Goyco.  Goyco got through a couple of times but Webster showed time and again why he is one of the top prospects in the Super Middlweight/Light Heavyweight divisions.

The show also featured an explosive forty-second knockout from Lightweight Joey Tiberi and a second round stoppage by popular pro debuting Light weight Alex Barbosa.

The show was rounded out by exciting Welterweight Anthony Young, who scored two knockdowns of durable Kywame Hill in winning his pro debut.
