Valley Fight Night Results from L.A.

LOS ANGELES-A vibrant crowd showed up to watch a very long Bash Boxing Promotions fight card on Friday night.
Though the fight card wasn’t the size of those put on in Mexico, it provided nonstop action at Sportsman’s Lodge before a packed crowd in Studio City. The boxing lineup showcased mostly talent from the San Fernando Valley and inner city Los Angeles area.
A super welterweight clash saw Jessy Martinez (8-0) out-work Nam Phan (3-5-1) behind a stiff left jab and sharp punching in the first two rounds. Then Pham stepped on the gas and was battering Martinez who waited for the proper moment to unleash a withering counter-attack. Martinez was banging Pham around the ring when referee Jerry Cantu decided to stop the fight at 1:30 of the third round.
“I feel great it was good,” said Martinez. “Nam is an impressive fighter he kept that pressure going.”
Martinez, who fights out of Tarzana, the town named for the movie hero Tarzan many years ago, was several inches taller than Phan and possesses a crisp effective jab. He used it wisely the first two rounds.
