Still undefeated

Lockport's Amer Abdallah improves to 13-0 with TKO win over Cleveland's Tiawan Howard at the Kenan Center Arena



Calixte was also impressive in his three-round, full contact light middleweight unanimous decision win over Jim Stetson of Syracuse. The three ring judges’ score cards were 29-27, 29-27, 29-28.
A body slam by Calixte when told to break by the referee cost the Lockport fighter a point on all three judges’ cards in the first round, but Calixte was patient and dominated the rest of the fight to win easily.
“It felt great to win. I’m improving and getting good training from my experienced coach Eric Hill,” Calixte said.
“I want to continue to improve my skills and move on to bigger and better things. I dedicate this win to coach Hill and my family.”
Other fight night winners were Matthew McConnell of Auburn, Donalea Maloney of Syracuse, Luay Ashkar of Syracuse, Keith Cole of Weedsport and Jade Jenkins and Kevin VanNostrand of Liverpool.
Matthew McConnell earned a unanimous decision victory over Nick Thomas of Toronto in a three round, light heavyweight bout, Maloney earned a unanimous decision victory over Erin Morris of Buffalo in a welterweight women’s fight, Ashkar's scheduled four-round welterweight bout against Jose Penilia of Cleveland was stopped due to an equipment malfunction, welterweight Cole edged Lockport’s Dan Dorfman by majority decision (29-28, 29-28, 28-29), Jenkins earned a super lightweight technical knockout win over Julie Vincent of Jamestown, just 18 seconds into the second round; and light middleweight VanNostrand earned a technical knockout win over Justin Bennet of Mississaugua, Ontario, 40 seconds into the second round.
Jenkins (6-0-1), who plans to attend the University of Buffalo, was one of the night’s most impressive fighters.
“I’ve been fighting for about three years, but I’ve been taking martial arts since I was five years old,” Jenkins said.
“She was a very aggressive opponent. I tried to keep my space and aim my strikes and just wait for that one opening.”
