Derrick Webster defeated Teneal Goyco to win the BAM Light Heavyweight Title.
Results from a boxing show held by Joey Eye Promotions at the Harrah’s Casino in Chester, Pennsylvania, on Friday, October 28, 2011.
Joey Tiberi (6-1, 4) vs. Mike Maley (4-9, 3)
Maley made the long trip from Indiana for this lightweight scrap, but it would be a very short night for him. Tiberi immediately dropped him three seconds into the bout, and he would soon regret his decision to get back on his feet. A native of neighboring Delaware, Tiberi quickly exploded on his opposition until the referee in charge was forced to step in and wave off the fight. The official time of the TKO stoppage was a mere 40 seconds into the first round.
Anthony Young (1-0) vs. Kywame Hill (1-9, 1)
Making his pro debut in this bout, Young was in complete control throughout the four rounds of action. Big exchanges ensued after the opening bell, with neither man backing down until Young worked Hill onto the ropes and dropped him with a flurry. Hill returned to his feet and was nearly taken out in the first frame when Young pounced on him late, but the Philadelphia resident survived. Young followed up in the second stanza with some good body work, rolling off his jab before dropping his opponent with a wide open left hook. However, Hill again got back to his feet and made it out of the frame. The final two rounds went down at a much slower pace than the opening pair, but Young was able to cruise to an eventual unanimous decision victory. The score cards read 40-34 (2) and 40-33, all in his favor.
Alex Barbosa (1-0, 1) vs. Brian Gonzalez (0-2)
This bantamweight contest had a pretty odd feel to it, with Puerto Rican fighter Gonzalez standing straight up and throwing his chin forward every time he threw a punch. Barbosa, a local graduate of Temple University, did not exploit the vulnerability that his opposition was showing in the opening frame, however. In the second round, Barbosa went to the body, and Gonzalez began to complain of kidney punches. The referee told him to continue despite the fact that he turned his back to his opponent. He did this again a second time just moments later, and Barbosa jumped in and sent him to the canvas following a left hook. The Puerto Rican boxer returned to his feet, but the referee was forced to stop the bout when Gonzalez told him that he did not want to continue. The official time of the stoppage was 2:30 of the second round.
Derrick Webster (11-0, 6) vs. Teneal Goyco (4-3, 2)

Franklin Lawrence (17-2-2, 12) vs. Ray Ocheing (23-15-3, 18)
Lawrence was in complete control in this outing, and he was able to outclass Ocheing throughout the entire first frame. He found his pockets and exploited seemingly every weakness of his opposition, dropping him twice in that opening round. The second stanza started just as the first one had ended, and the referee was forced to step in and end the fight just 30 seconds into the round when it became apparent that Ocheing was unable to protect himself after being knocked down a third time.
