The Kaltsas Promotion’s 10 bout fight card presented
at the Royal Oak Music Theatre, was showcased more than expected.
The last two headline fights, ended in first round KO’s
for the local winners, Anthony Barnes and Michael Portillo.
Barnes, a super middleweight, from Huntington Woods, now stands
at 6-0. His opponent, Darryl Fields from Akron, Ohio was a
last minute substitution for the scheduled four rounder. Fields
was caught off guard as Barnes came out charging and landed
an early heavy handed right. It was just 21 seconds into the
fight. Fields attempted to stand but it was all over. [8.20.14]

will hit the books just after Labor Day. Bullying continues
to be a huge problem in our schools nationwide. Three high
school seniors from southern California stood up, did something
and received scholarships for their efforts. The Abercrombie
& Fitch Anti-Bullying Scholarships total $1,000 each and
can be renewed for each of the four years that winners attend
college. “Bullying is a national epidemic,” said
Jacob Gardenswartz, the first of the three winners from SoCal.
