Deion Sparks (Judah Bros BC) appeared to be the heavy favorite in the 123-pound class, but Saleh Almulaki (Universal BC) had other ideas. Almulaki, the P.C. Richard and Son Boxer of the Night, was ferocious for all six minutes of their novice bout and simply wore his opponent down.
“In the beginning I was a little nervous, but when the fight starts I forget who you are, where you came from,” Almulaki said. “The first round he was tough, but after that I destroyed him.”
Almulaki will meet the equally impressive Christopher Fernandez (Worldwide BC) in the 123-pound final after Fernandez defeated Yosuke Suzuki (Unattached) in the Applebee’s Bout of the Night.
