Despite giving up nearly seven inches in height, Queens, NY native and Team Fight to Walk member Will “Power” Rosinsky won a hard-fought eight-round unanimous decision over the son of a legend, Aaron Pryor Jr.
Rosinsky’s game plan was obvious from the get-go; get inside Pryor’s reach and dig to the body. Pryor was able to tie Rosinsky up effectively though, forcing Rosinsky to adapt.
As the fight wore on, Rosinsky showed he was the much more skilled boxer of the two, using quick footwork to jump in and out of range, scoring with combinations to both the body and the head of the rangy Pryor. Pryor showed a good chin and never seemed to be in any serious trouble, but in the end, Rosinsky cruised to a unanimous decision, winning by scores of 79-73, 79-73, 78-74. With the win, Rosinsky improved his record to 16-1, 9KO’s, while Pryor drops to 16-6, 11KO’s.
After a bit of a feeling out first round, lightweights Floriano Pagliara (one of the newest Team Fight to Walk members) and Rynell Griffin went to war for the remainder of their six-round affair.
Pagliara pressed the action throughout with Griffin countering effectively. It looked as though Pagliara was on the verge of stopping Griffin on a few occasions but Griffin hung tough and was able to make it to the final bell. In the end, the scores read 59-55 across the board for Pagliara, who improved to 13-4-1, 6KO’s.
