Kenny Robles vs. Latorie Woodberry: Welterweight bout
Robles made his professional debut in this fight and he didn't do too badly here to open the show. Robles worked the body hard in th first round, but leaves himself open way too often and with a more experienced fighter, Robles would have been knocked down from the getgo. Woodberry got some hard punches in, but still lacks finishing power. You can tell both guys still are very green as professionals. They're unpolished and need to work more towards the technical side of the sport.
The fourth, and final round, was very entertaining with both guys throwing wild haymakers from the start. Robles, who's from Staten Island, New York, got a lot fans who traveled to Brooklyn and Robles found a rhythm as the round went on. Conversely, Woodberry was looking winded throughout the round and did not do much in the last 90 seconds.
