Fonseca to fight on May 9th Card!
April 23, 2009

     
   
   
   
   

(APR 23) Philadelphia’s very own Brian ‘Bionic Bull’ Cohen (9-2) heads up an awesome 10 fight card when he faces Lafayette, Indiana’s Robbie ‘Taz Mexican Devil’ Tovar (15-4-1) for the WBC Americas Light Heavyweight title at the Donna Cohen promoted ‘Brawl On Broad Street’ event at South Philadelphia High School, Broad & Snyder, Philadelphia on the 9th May.

In addition to the seven male fights there will also be three female fights, although unfortunately the highly anticipated and heavily publicized debut at this event of former World Champions, the legendary Smokin’ Joe Frazier and Steve ‘USS’ Cunningham’s protégé, British Super Bantamweight Marianne ‘Golden Girl’ Marston will not be one of them due to the American authorities decision not to grant her a visa in time to take part.  Instead Donna Cohen has bought in an exciting replacement in the form of No. 8 ranked Welterweight Olivia Fonseca (2-2-2) in addition to Lightweight Lonnie Jackson Jr. (1-0) and the professional debut of Lightweight Liz Sherman.

Cohen, who cuts an imposing figure due to his chiseled bodybuilder style physique, is odds on favourite to add another championship belt to his already impressive collection, which includes the USA Mid American, USA Mid West, NABC, C.A.M. Land Indiana State Light Heavyweight Titles, even though he failed to capture the WBC USBN title in his previous outing in January this year.

So why is Cohen such a sure fire bet? One thing for sure is it isn’t because his opponent a lame duck, anything but, as Tovar has an excellent pedigree and is a three time local champion at two different weights, Super Middleweight and Light Heavyweight. The answer to this conundrum can be found elsewhere.

Firstly, Cohen’s January loss to Billy Bailey followed a freak asthma attack bought on by the 95 degree heat in the arena that day. Promoter, Donna Cohen, is taking no chances of a repeat scenario on the 9th May by having an air-conditioned trailer placed adjacent to the arena for Cohen on the day.

Secondly, and probably more relevant, is that out of the Cohen’s nine victories to date all but one were by stoppage within three rounds, with four of those being by way of knockout. Now that’s impressive stats and surely answers the question.

Supporting Cohen vs.Tovar will be a card packed with local talent including Super Middleweight Dennis Hassan (8-0), Heavyweight ‘Big’ John Mercurio (2-0), Cruiserweight Pedro Martinez (3-2), Super Middleweight Dhafir ‘No Fear’ Smith (20-19-6), Featherweight Paul Fernandez (4-2-1) and Middleweight ‘Mighty’ Mike Tibberi (7-1).  Source/PR
