Dharry to battle Rios on December 6th in Sint Maarten

Saturday night December 6th on the paradise island of Sint Maarten, nestled nicely in the Caribbean, two titles will be on the line as Bobby Ottley’s Bose Promotions presents a big night of professional boxing titled “This is it-War.” The twelve round main event of the Bose Promotions promoted card will also be in association with Elton Dharry Promotions, as Elton Dharry (16-5-1, 10KOs) of Brooklyn, New York, by way of Guyana, battles it out with Nicaraguan bantamweight champion Jose Rios (13-1-1, 6KOs) for the coveted IBF Inter-continental bantamweight title.

Dharry, who is known as quick boxer who adjusts quickly when in the ring to the various styles of his opponents as shown in his victories over Dexter Marques (8-1,3KOs), Rudolph Hedge (7-0-3, 2KOs) and Eilon Kedem (11-3-1, 7KOs).

In his last fight Elton Dharry only needed one round to stop thirty-five fight veteran Lashaun Blair.

He will face his toughest opponent to date on December 6th at the L.B. Scott Auditorium in Phillipsburg, Sint Maarten when he takes on Nicaraguan bantamweight champion Jose Rios (12-1-1, 5KOs).

It will be the first fight out of Nicaragua for the dangerous Nicaraguan champion Jose Rios, who has six knockouts in his twelve victories.

He captured the Nicaraguan bantamweight title in June of 2013 with a ten round unanimous decision victory over Carlos Osorio (10-3, 5KOs). In his last bout, October 24th, he successfully defended the Nicaraguan title with ten round unanimous decision over Frederick Castro (8-3-2,1KO) and he should be primed and ready come December 6th.

The co-feature of the loaded international card will be a war to settle the score perfectly fits the card title “This is it-War” as Carlette “The Truth” Ewell (15-7-1, 9KOs) battles it out with top rated Sonya Lamonakis (9-1-2, 1KO) over ten rounds for the IBO female Heavyweight title.

It will be a rematch of a hotly contested draw back in January 2012 at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City. The stakes have been raised this time as the vacant IBO Female Heavyweight title is on the line.

The top ranked Lamonakis knows a win will avenge the draw on her record and put her in the driver’s seat of the heavyweight division. In her last bout she avenged the only other previous draw with a solid eight round unanimous decision victory over Tanzee Daniels.

The more experienced Carlette Ewell, nicknamed the truth pulls no punches and says that she felt she won the first battle, but that the bout was declared a draw in the hometown area of Lamonakis. Now she promises a knockout or a lot of pain for Lamonakis if she has to go the distance to secure the victory. If she is to do this, there must be two years of ring rust to be shaken off. Carlette isn’t worried, proclaiming that she has been in the gym, but several fights fell through.
