Silky Wilky Campfort beats Khurshid Abdullaev, improves to 17-1

For the first fully international card of the night junior middleweight Haitian Wilky Campfort (17-1, 9 KOs) took on undefeated Khurshid Abdullaev (6-1-1, 3 KOs) of Russia for eight rounds. Campfort knocked Abdullaev down in the first and in the second Campfort threw Abdullaev out of the ring. The Russian came back with a vengeance in the third getting in several key hits. This gutty, gritty brawl was almost too close to call. Campfort won via a very close split decision with the judges scoring the bout 77-74 for Campfort, 76-74 for Abdullaev and 76-75 for Campfort.

In the only New York versus New York match-up of the evening, heavyweights Adam Kownacki (6-0, 6 KOs) of Brooklyn, NY and Excell Holmes (2-3-1, 1 KO) of Buffalo, NY hooked up for a scheduled four rounds. Kownacki came out swinging early and had Holmes bleeding and up against the ropes in the first round. The crowd was filled with Kownacki supporters and they were letting Holmes know it. Kownacki continued to come after Holmes in the second when the referee stopped the fight at 0:41. Kownacki keeps his perfect undefeated record of every win coming by way of knockout alive.
