Spina – Echols Weigh In at Foxwoods Photo Gallery!

By Peter Heintzelman, Photos by Peter Heintzelman - Weights Recorded by: Trish Kilcullen - Foxwoods Resort Casino, in Mashantucket, CT had a marathon of a weigh in for the Last Man Standing fight card scheduled for Saturday night. A marathon it was, as the start time was 4pm, yet the weigh in did not begin until over an hour later when some, but not all, of the fighters were ready to weigh in, dry, thirsty, hungry they were. Even the marquis outside the theatre, still reported Ray Oliveira as the main event competition for Joey Spina; how things change in short time, even in professional boxing..

The first confused hours were spent filling our registrations and verifying IDs, and the commission heard complaints from fighters, particularly from Massachusetts, who were having difficulty getting a call back from the Bay State’s boxing commission concerning renewals of licenses that had expired. And finally, the weigh in began, albeit without the presence of the belated substitute for Ray Oliviera, namely Antwun “Kid Dynamite” Echols.

Nothing is easy in boxing.

Finally, the scales came out, and the weigh in was recorded as follows:


10 Rounds at Super Middleweight Joey “KO Kid” Spina 25-1-2, 17 KO’s Providence, Rhode IslandWeight: 172 lbs
Vs. Antwun “ Kid Dynamite” Echols, 32-14-4, 28 KO’s of Davenport, Iowa
