Ryan Roach’s Fighter Locker enjoyed a hot July with four members of its stable winning fights, as well as signing an Irish amateur boxer, and being represented by three at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.
Back on July 10th in Miami, undefeated featherweight prospect Daniel “G.D.F.E.” Bailey (7-0, 4 KOs) took a 4-round unanimous decision from Mike Fowler. Bailey is scheduled to fight in his first scheduled 6-round bout August 28th against Donte Dunnaville (3-0, 2 KOs) on a Hall of Famer Christy Martin-promoted show in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Miami-native Bailey is training in Tampa.
Another undefeated fighter, “The Amazing” Shawn McCalman (8-0, 4 KOs) captured the ABF American West Super Middleweight Champion with a 6-round unanimous decision on July 10th in Cheyenne (WY) over Vaughan Alexander (15-5, 9 KOs). McCalman fights out of Aurora, Colorado.
Two Fighter Locker stable members were victorious this past Saturday in Dedham, Massachusetts. Albany, NY junior welterweight RayJay “The Destroyer” Bermudez (13-0, 10 KOs) became the NBA Continental champion with a third-round knockout of Bergman Aguillar (15-8-1, 5 KOs) in the main event. Bermudez is also the ABF America West Super Lightweight Champion.
Weymouth, MA junior welterweight Eric “Gladiator” Goff (3-0, 2 KOs) was impressive, stopping Austin Reed Ward in the opening round.
Fighter Locker also recently signed Irish amateur boxer Thomas O’Toole to an exclusive managerial contract. The 23-year-old southpaw O’Toole is a promising light heavyweight prospect who captured top honors at the 2019 Irish Elite Championships.
Fighter Locker had three representatives in this year’s Olympics. Colombian flyweight Yuberjan “El Tremendo” Martinez, who captured a silver medal at the 2018 Olympics in Brazil as a light flyweight, reached the field of 8 before being eliminated.
Two-time Olympian is Dominican Republic lightweight Leonel de los Santos, who is 3-0 (3 KOs) as a pro fighting in the welterweight division, and Colombian middleweight Jorge Vivas were eliminated in the field of 32.
Fighter Locker fighters will remain busy as California super flyweight Rocco “So Cal Kid” Santomauro (21-1, 6 KOs) takes on Jeronil Barnes (11-5, 8 KOs) on August 21st in Gulfstream Park in Hallandale, Florida. Miami light heavyweight Robert Daniels, Jr. (4-0, 4 KOs), the son of former WBA cruiserweight World champion Robert “Preacher Man” Daniels (49-10-1, 41 KOs), is slated to make his Fighter Locker debut on the same card.
“It has been a busy summer for my fighters,” Fighter Locker president Ryan Roach remarked. “I have been fortunate enough to keep them rolling. I am very impressed with all of their performances. Shawn McCalman was very impressive against Alexander. He is a very tough boxer. I had matchmakers and promoters calling me the next day saying your guy beat Alexander, which means he can fight. Daniel Bailey was also impressive in his homecoming. He boxed very well. We had a few takeaways. He really wanted the KO for his fans, but Mike Fowler hung in there. RayJay capturing the NBA title was a big win because he jumped in the rankings. He looked great delivering some vicious body shots. I am looking forward to Rocco and Robert stepping back in the ring August 21st at Gulfstream Park & Casino in Florida.
“On the Olympic side, we didn’t bring home any medals, but we were close with Yuberjen. I think boxing politics got in the way of Leonel and Jorge, but that is part of the game. I am proud of my guys, and they are looking forward to turning to the professional ranks. They will be going home to rest for a few weeks, and we will get to work planning out their future.”
