Sinakin Wins, Israeli Draws, and Kaminsky's Fight Cancelled

Both Benjamin Sinakin and Tamar Israeli were featured on last Saturday's card at the Met in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. David Kaminsky was originally scheduled to fight February 8, then the 16th, and now maybe in March.

Sinakin, a light heavyweight, only stayed in the ring for two minutes and forty two seconds before earning a KO victory over the winless Ronald Lawrence. Sinakin landed an overhand right left hook combo that put Lawrence down for the count. This is the third straight fight Lawrence has been knocked out in the first round; a streak that dates back to 2012. He was knocked down by Todd Unthank May in his debut before going the distance. Lawrence is now 0-4. This opponent posed less of a challenge than Sinakin's first two. The Jewish Bulldog, who came in at 173.3 lbs- the same as his opponent- is now 3-0 with two KOs.

Tamar Israeli won her fight on one judge's card, three rounds to one. But the other two judges saw things differently and Israeli's fight against Karen Dulin was deemed a majority draw. Dulin, a 43 year old from Rhode Island, weighed in nearly two pounds lighter than Israeli for their featherweight affair. She is now 3-16-1 with one KO. Israeli moves to 2-0-1 with one KO.

Initially, junior middleweight David Kaminsky was scheduled to fight at Sportsman Lodge in Los Angeles, California on February 8. A kitchen fire forced a postponement and a relocation. The card was moved to February 16 at Florentine Gardens in Hollywood, California. At some point, Kaminsky fell off the card. BoxRec current has Kaminsky slated to fight on March 23 with no other details attached. There is an event in Costa Mesa, California on that date.
