Richie Boy Promotions’ top prospects, IBF No. 15 rated junior lightweight Ira Terry and 2008 Ringside World Championships winner Chris Rudd, both closed out 2009 in style with knockout victories.
Richie Boy Promotions also promotes undefeated IBF light heavyweight champion Tavoris Cloud (20-0, 18 KOs).
The 22-year-old Terry (24-2, 14 KOs), fighting out of Memphis, stopped Terrance “T-Brick” Roy in the sixth round of their Dec. 15th fight in Kentucky. Terry also is ranked No. 5 by the USBA.
Rudd (10-0, 7 KOs) was an outstanding U.S. amateur before turning pro in 2007, rather than pursue a spot on the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team. On Dec. 19 in his native Tennessee, 25-year-old Rudd put Rodney Freeman to sleep in the second round to keep his perfect professional record intact.
“We’re very high on Terry and Rudd and expect big things from both of them in 2010,” Richie Boy Promotions director of boxing operations Al Bonanni said. “We hope that both will capture their first titles as pros next year.”
