Michael Coffie Vs. Jonathan Rice Undercard Results: Joey Spencer Takes Care Of Business Against James Martin

In his last ring outing, James Martin (7-3, 0 KOs) pulled off a monumental upset against previously undefeated prospect, Vito Mielnicki. While he may have been able to hand the New Jersey native the first defeat of his professional career, he wasn't able to replicate that same level of magic tonight. In front of a mostly jam-packed crowd at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, the two faced off as the opening bout of a three card show on PBC on FOX. Originally, Martin was slated to take on Meilnicki in a highly anticipated rematch. However, with Martin missing the 147 pound weight limit by 4.5 pounds, they removed him from their showdown and instead, allowed him to move up in weight to face the undefeated Joey Spencer (13-0, 9 KOs). Unlike against Mielnicki, Martin had little to no answers as Spencer mostly had his way with his overmatched opponent. With eight hard rounds of action in the books, Spencer cruised to a unanimous decision victory on the night. The post Michael Coffie Vs.

Vito Mielnicki Gets Back Into The Win Column, Stops Noah Kidd In The Second

By: Hans Themistode It wasn't what normally happens. In the early stages of a prospect's career, they're matched relatively lightly against fighters that more time than not, are meant to make them look good. Yet, once welterweight contender Vito Mielnicki (9-1, 5 KOs) suffered the first defeat of his career in his last ring appearance against who many believed was a no-hoper in James Martin, the New Jersey needed a major reset. In an effort to right the ship, Mielnicki attempted to get Martin back into the ring in an immediate rematch. Everything appeared to be on track for the two to do it again, that is, until Martin stepped onto the scale's weight 4.5 pounds over the welterweight limit. Martin was immediately removed from their contest and Noah Kidd (6-4-2, 5 KOs) stepped in on roughly 24 hours' notice. With a chance to impress in front of his hometown crowd, and get himself back on track, Mielnicki didn't disappoint. After a fairly energetic opening round from Kidd in the first few seconds, Mielnicki settled in. He boxed and moved on the outside, while patiently waiting for his man to make a mistake. That, of course, didn't take long. Mielnicki dropped his man with a clean left hook. To the credit of Kidd, he managed to make it back to his feet. He then attempted to grab and hold. His tactics worked as he managed to escape to the second round. Completely uninterested in having a long night, Mielnicki sent his man to the canvas again early in the second. Once again, Kidd crawled back to his feet but this time around, he appeared to be in worse shape. He attempted to grab and hold, just as he did in the opening round. However, Mielnicki pushed his man and went on the attack, sending the journeymen to the deck once again. From there, Mielnicki’s night came to an end as the referee called an immediate halt to their matchup. Following the win, Mielnicki expressed his fruitions with Martin and his failure to make weight. Rather than seeking another rematch, Mielnicki stated that he was moving forward in his career and declared Martain and inconsequential fighter to his future success.
