Fort Washington, MD - Kevin Rivers proved he deserved top billing as he outlasted Karl Garcia-Rios in a super featherweight bout on Friday night at Rosecroft Raceway. The 24-year-old Palmer Park resident stopped Garcia-Rios deep into the final round of a scheduled six-rounder. Rivers moves to 10-0 with seven knockouts. He showed the quickest hands on the card in dropping Garcia-Rios to 4-3.

With seven bouts scheduled, the night's biggest upset occurred when Tony Ferrante (13-6, 8 KO's) knocked out Baltimore's Venroy July (16-2-3, 6 KO's) in the second round of a scheduled eight round cruiserweight matchup. Ferrante staggered July midway through the round and followed up quickly with a thunderous right to send July to the canvas and end the fight at 1:26 in the second.
