Henderson dropped Aikens with a jab in round two. That opened up Aikens for a Henderson onslaught, as the fighter nicknamed “Hot Sauce” applied the heat to Aikens and downed him two more times before the 2nd round could end. Already on shaky legs, it was another jab that sent The Atlantic City native down for the fourth time. Henderson wasted no time in disposing of Aikens, as he ended things with a hard right hand for the fifth and final knockdown at 2:14.
Henderson of Fayetteville, Arkansas won his 2nd bout at The 2300 Arena, and is now 12-0 with eight knockouts. Aikens of Atlantic City is now 13-7-1.
In the co-feature, Brandon Robinson survived a 1st round knockdown to come back and win an eight-round split decision over DeVaun Lee in a super middleweight contest.
Lee landed an overhand right in the opening frame that clipped the chin of Robinson, and Robinson’s knee grazed the canvas for a knockdown. He shook that off, and both fighters took turns in dictating the action. Both were able to land some good power shots, and the fight was tight the whole way while providing good action throughout.
When the scores were tallied, they read 77-74 and 77-75 for Robinson. Lee won the third card 76-75.
Good looking super bantamweight prospect Raeese “The Beast” Aleem stopped normally durable Ramiro Robles in the opening frame of their scheduled eight-round bout.
Aleem dropped Robles three times, with the punctuation shot being a crisp left hook to the body that sent Robles down at 1:51.
Aleem of Las Vegas is 14-0 with eight knockouts. Robles of Queretaro, Mexico falls to 15-9-2.
Alycia Baumgardner made quick work of Gabriella Mezei, as she needed just 68 seconds of their scheduled six-round junior lightweight contest.
Baumgardner scored knockdowns on body shots on the overmatched Mezei.
Baumgardner of Fremont, Ohio is 7-1 with five knockouts. Mezei of Covasna, Romania is 9-18-5.
