Tampa, FL – Terry Trekas and One Punch Productions ended the year for Tampa boxing with a nine fight extravaganza. In front of a capacity crowd at the Tampa Westshore DoubleTree Hotel, local favorite Adam Jaco (9-3-1, 4 KOs) won his fifth straight match easily, knocking out Adam Collins (7-4-0, 5 KOs). The night also saw the return of “Blood Bath” Brian Chiary (10-6-1, 2 KOs) after an almost three year hiatus. Overall it was an exciting night to end the year for Tampa boxing.
In the main event of the night, Sarasota, Florida’s Adam Jaco squared off against Adam Collins from Ohio in a six round contest. Jaco, the heavy crowd favorite, looked to please the crowd early as he had done in a TKO victory back in July at the same venue, and did not let the audience down. Jaco came out strong in the first, landing with telling overhand rights that forced Collins to backtrack. Collins tried to counterattack, but found difficulty in landing his overhand shots as Jaco’s accurate punches kept him backpedaling. The second round started much the same; however Collins began to dip his body trying to avoid the punches from Jaco. This movement proved to be his undoing. Collins dipped again trying to avoid a shot, but Jaco threw and connected with a powerful overhand right, dropping him to the canvas. Collins was able to get off the mat, but soon met it again, when Jaco connected with a left hook to the head. The third and final knockdown came at the 1:20 mark of the round, with another left hook crushing into Collins. Jaco improved his record to 9-3-1, winning his fifth straight contest.
In the co-main event, “Blood Bath” Brian Chiary returned to action after only fighting once in the past five years, facing Terrence Wilson (5-6-0, 3 KOs). Chiary came out aggressive at the bell, looking to establish himself early. The first saw much in-fighting, as both fighters found it difficult to turn on their punches. Chiary, living up to his nickname, finished the round with a bloody nose. Wilson’s output increased in the second, but was caught in the middle of the round with a big left hand. Chiary was unable to capitalize on the punch, but did land a solid right-left combination. Brian imposed his strength on Wilson in the third, exciting the crowd with his hard punches, but only landed on the arms and blocked by Wilson. The fourth and fifth rounds were largely uneventful, with even exchanges and sloppy shots. Chiary highlighted the match in the sixth, with a reaching left hook dropping an off-balanced Wilson. Judges scored the bout 59-54 (Mike Ross) and 60-53 twice (Brian Garry and Ged O’Connor).
This night ends One Punch Productions schedule for 2010 and will return in 2011 at the DoubleTree Hotel with the popular “Ballroom Brawl” series. For more information on future events, visit www.onepunch.net.
