Jason “Big Six” Estrada, a 2004 US Olympian, made a strong statement in Saturday evening’s main event, knocking out “Diamond” Dominique Alexander in the second round, at the Rhode Island Convention Center. “Who’s Next?” was presented by Big Six Entertainment. Estrada (18-4-0, 5ko, fighting out of Providence, showed more power than he had in the past against veteran Alexander (22-14-1, 10ko).

Healthy for the first time in years after undergoing surgery to his elbow and ankle, Estrada delivered pain instead of suffering from it: “I felt good and knew that I was in good shape,” Jason said after the fight. “The big difference was the time between my last fight, December. That’s the big thing, staying active. I was lifting weights a lot with my father and it showed tonight. I hit him with a short right and left as he was going down.

“He was a tough kid who kept trying.”

Popular cruiserweight Rich Gingras (11-2-0, 7ko), one of the stars of The Contender IV, dropped Adam Harris (10-5-0, 7ko) with a left hook to the body for an exciting second-round knockout in the co-feature. An obviously pained Harris went down on one knee but was unable to beat the count. Gingras was fighting for the first time in over two years.

Elsewhere on the card, junior middleweight Dustin Reinhold (5-2-0, 2ko) won all four rounds from a game Jose Angel “Yayo” Ortiz (4-7-1, 1ko).  Super middleweight Joe Gardner  (8-4-1, 1ko) won a unanimous four-round decision against Rameil Shelton (0-4) in a spirited contest. Hometown favorite Kali Reis (4-1-1, 2ko) pitched a shutout against pro-debuting Marva Dash in a four-round junior middleweight bout.
