Niagara Gazette — “My last fight was pretty good, but what I noticed I was lacking in was good, clean, crisp standup and I feel like boxing is the way to go when you want to improve your standup, get that knockout power and improve your dodges,” Aspaas said.
The other main event starred North Tonawanda’s John Nuchereno. When the fight was finished he thought he did enough to earn the victory, however the judges didn’t see it the same way.
Despite what Nuchereno described as a “sloppy” first round, he thought his recovery rounds were enough to win.
“I thought I won for sure,” Nuchereno said. “There wasn’t a doubt in my mind that my hand was going to be raised.”
Nuchereno had many big punches connect in the final two rounds, igniting the crowd’s attention and participation.
The MMA portion of the card had many fights ending in knockouts, which locked in the turbo button and brought the Sportsplex atmosphere to new levels following the boxing bouts.
Lockport was well represented in the MMA portion with victories from David Whitman and Mikey Schultz. It was Whitman’ first TNT victory and the third for Schultz.
