USKA “Stand and Deliver” went down in Allentown, PA, Saturday, April 13. With eight amateur bouts on the fight card, it wound up being a terrific event full of highlight reel knockouts, great fights, and several debuting newcomers who showed great promise.  In the main event, Jordan Grenyon-Smith was on fire and came out throwing everything and finishing with a head kick KO 1:32 into the bout.

JJ Veramendi is a 20 year old blue chip prospect making his debut who also used the head kick to win by KO in spectacular fashion in round 2 vs a very tough Shawn Wilson.

Trevan “War Angel” Stephens had a 2 round war with Jeff Knapp and also made the highlight reel with a KO right before the bell at the end of the 2nd round.  Stephens will now face Brandon “the Ghost” Dean in a 175 lb State title bout on May 18.

Fight of the night had to go to Casey Kilgos and Jacob Strickler. It ended in a split decision for Strickler but the action was non-stop and intense with both men taking turns punishing the other.  One of the best fights I’ve seen in a while.
