If boxing were a team sport, then I would have to say the home team won–by shutout. New Jersey boxing fans filled the Birchwood Manor in Whippany, NJ Saturday night and the local talent did not disappoint. KEA Boxing put on a terrific show that overly satisfied everyone who purchased a ticket. Those who enjoy big punches and lots of action were pleased as only one bout was won by decision.

Alex “The Brick City Bullet” Perez, 17-1, 9 KO’s is an old school, all action fighter who wants nothing more than to fight as often as possible. Unfortunately, the business of boxing has often worked against the tall southpaw. Perez takes great pride in his craft and has always had faith that he will become a World Champion. He makes it very clear that he wants the biggest fights out there as often as possible at this point in his career to show the world who he really is.

“Henry Hascup is the hardest working person in all of boxing. He works 25 hours a day 7 days a week for tons of organizations to help fighters and the sport. He doesn’t get half the recognition he deserves. I am proud to call him my friend” - Harold Lederman.
What New Jersey’s Henry Hascup has not only done for boxing but for boxer’s in particular is not nationally known by many.
Hascup is rarely seen without a tuxedo by this writer. He is a walking encyclopedia on boxers. He’s got the looks of a movie star and by the way so does his wife. (Web Editor's Note: Totally agree with Hissner... these two give Ken and Barbie a run for their money!) He sort of reminds one of the actor Roger Moore and her Eva Marie-Saint! They were married in 1989 and each having 4 children of their own at the time.

The evening was nearly over. Several dramatic bouts had been fought at Schuetzen Park in the NYC suburb of North Bergen, New Jersey. The promoters at KEA Boxing were wrapping up a wonderfully successful evening of truly fine boxing, filled with surprise TKO’s, upsets, and suspenseful decisions. The main event had been fought and won, and there was only one more bout left to put a cap on a great evening. But nothing that occurred inside the ring could possibly match the high drama outside of it that was about to transpire.
