Irish Ropes Win Fights

The Irish Ropes Boxing Club in Arverne once again tasted success in the boxing world. Undefeated middleweight boxer John Duddy knocked out Larry Vaughn with a right hand at 1:29 of the first round on February 4 at the Westchester County Center. The win improved Duddy’s record to 9-0 and will fight on ESPN 2 Friday Night Fights show on March 18 at Foxwoods Resort and Casino.

Rashid Johnson battled back from a first round knockdown to win in a Daily News Golden Gloves 152 pound fight last week. After winning the second round, Johnson ended the fight with a third round knockout. Robert Ruden, a 132 pound southpaw, recovered from a shaky start to win a unanimous decision.
