Although only 19 Schwarz does look like he could be a handful with lovely combination punching, heavy hands and a willingness to switch between head and body. Lovely debut.
Staying on the theme of debutants Justin Goslee (1-0, 1) over-came Jose Hermosillo (0-1) in 134 seconds in an all-debutant bout.
In Colorado former multi-weight world champion James Toney (75-8-3-2, 45) claimed a highly controversial and much slammed decision victory over Kenny Lemos (12-8-2, 8). Originally Lemos was read out as the winner before the decision was corrected in the ring with many feeling Toney was given a a very early Christmas present.
Former Toney opponent Danny Batchelder (27-9-1, 13) was also in action as he over-came Rodney Moore (17-8-2, 7) over 6 rounds.
Oddly Toney v Batchelder II looks like it could be a bout that Batchelder will chase looking for revenge after a controversial split decision loss to Toney in 2007 in a bout that saw both men fail drug tests.
Former Cuban amateur star Robert Alfonso (2-0) claimed his second victory scoring a 4 round decision over Robert Dunton (9-8-1, 6). Whilst on paper this looks good Alfono came in at an over-weight 255lbs, more than 20lbs heavier than his weight on his debut. Another Cuban with weight problems?
In Dubai veteran Clarence Tillman (11-13-2, 6) suffered his 5ht straight loss suffering a notable upset defeat at the hands of the debuting Blaise Ndassi (1-0) of Cameroon.
