PhilBoxing.com




ORLANDO, FL (June 8, 2024) – Tonight Boxlab Promotions delivered another great “Night of Champions” boxing series at the Caribe Royale Hotel in Orlando, Florida. DAZN aired all the action on the global stage. In the main event of the evening, scheduled for 8-rounds in the light heavyweight division, Atif Oberlton (11-0, 9 KOs), a southpaw from Philadelphia, defeated Harry Keenan Cruz (8-5, 4 KOs) by sixth round knockout.

Oberlton controlled the action as he pressed forward once the opening bell rang. Cruz seemed to be just trying to survive as he was running the entire fight, as Oberlton did his best to engage. Oberlton landed a left uppercut after a flurry of punches and the referee stopped the fight. The official stoppage was at the 2:23 mark of round six.

“I wanted to come out tonight and put on a great performance,” said Oberlton. “I got the knockout and now I’m ready to take my career to the next level. I put in a lot of hard work to get into this position. I’ll be back in the gym next week and hopefully I’ll be back in the ring before the end of the summer.”

In the co-main event, Herich Ruiz (5-0, 3 KOs) defeated Brandon Carmack (7-5-3, 4 KOs) by knockout in a heavyweight bout scheduled for 8-rounds. Ruiz dominated the bout from the opening round scoring two knockdowns, the first came in round one when Carmack took a knee after a flurry of punches. In round two, Carmack took another knee after getting hit with an overhand left. Ruiz carried Carmack for a few more rounds before ending the bout with another overhand left. The referee stopped the bout at the 1:14 mark of round six.

“Carmack showed a lot of heart lasting six rounds with me, but I showed my skills and power to the world,” said Ruiz. “I had to slow down my pace just a bit because he was he was taking a lot of punishment. I wanted to break him down some more and I got him out of there. I’m ready to take on all the big names in the heavyweight division.”

"We are delighted to have hosted another thrilling boxing event at the Caribe Royale Hotel in Orlando," said Amaury Piedra, managing director of Caribe Royale. "The fighters delivered an incredible show for the fans tonight. Carlos De Leon Castro's debut was particularly impressive, and we believe he has the potential to become the next big star from Puerto Rico. We have many exciting events on the horizon and can't wait to bring more fantastic shows to the fans in Orlando."
