By: Robert Carroll
September 20th, Whitesands Events Center, Plant City, Florida: In the main event of Garry Jonas, Pro-BoxTV Wednesday Night Fights, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, based Kazakhstani, southpaw, super lightweight, Batyrzhan “777” Jukembayev survived a first-round knockdown and chased Santiago del Estero, Argentina’s, Hugo “Nato” Roldan to a ten round split decision win.
Jukembayev down from a “Nato” combination in round one quickly recovered and returned the favor flooring Roldan with a snapping southpaw left in round two opening the way for some entertaining back and forth middle round action.
In the second half Jukembayev’s clean counter punching began to take control leading to some intermittent grappling and putting the unorthodox Roldan on a defensive “bike”. “777” pushing the action remained in close pursuit out working and out landing the awkward Argentine to a 96-93, 95-94, Jukembayev, 97-92 Roldan ten round split decision win. Jukembayev, 3-0 since a May 2021 eight round RTD loss to Subriel Matias moves to 21-1, 18Ko’s as Roldan 2-2 in his last four appearances falls to 22-2-1, 7Ko’s.
In the ten round semi-main attraction, a meeting of unbeatens, Queensland, Australia’s, Kareem “The Weapon” Hackett claimed the vacant WBA Inter-Continental Light Heavyweight title with a slanted ten round unanimous decision win over Toronto, Ontario, southpaw, Clay Waterman.
The taller longer, Hackman, a southpaw took charge from the opening sound controlling the distance early with his seven-inch reach advantage circling the pressing Aussie picking his shots working off a peppering jab adding straight left hands while controlling any infighting targeting the ineffective Waterman’s body to a 99-91, 100-90 times two unanimous decision win. Hackett climbs to 12-0, 6Ko’s while Waterman with his first defeat slips to 11-1, 8Ko’s.
In a scheduled eight round bout, following an almost standard feeling out opening round Bronx, New York, super welterweight, Ismael Villarreal overwhelmed floored Miami, Florida’s, listless John David Martinez three times in round two forcing referee Emil Lombardi to call it over at 2:58 of the second round. Rebounding from a February ten round split decision loss to Ardreal Holmes Jr., Villarreal back on track moves to 13-1, 9Ko’s while Martinez unbeaten in his previous eight bouts drops to 19-3, 16Ko’s.
What is ProBox TV
ProBox TV is a new source of premium boxing content. We will offer live events and robust supporting content, brought to you by our founders, former champions Roy Jones Jr, Juan Manuel Marquez, Antonio Tarver and Paul Malignaggi.
Our motivation for creating ProBox TV is simple. Boxing fans have been taken for granted. They’ve been underserved regarding the quality of content. Further, the other networks involved in boxing lack a commitment to the sport, the fighters and most importantly, the fans. Real fight fans need an “all-boxing channel” fully focused on giving fans what they want.
ProBox TV will also address another critical issue that boxing fans have been forced to accept for far too long: overpriced content. At ProBox TV, we are doing away with the antiquated and expensive PPV model and offering our premium content for a nominal monthly price that is affordable for every fan in every country around the world.
What makes ProBox TV unique is our focus on supporting content, such as news, podcasts and talk shows, behind the scenes and in the gym content, ProBox TV originals documentaries.

CONTENT TO BE DELIVERED MONTHLY
We will provide 2 live events per month.
Each week our founders will come to the ProBox TV studios where they’ll produce a variety of original content including podcasts, talk shows and in the gym content.
ProBox TV Contenders Series
The Contenders Series is best characterized as good fighters in great fights. These contender level fighters will be evenly matched! That’s the most necessary component for fights to be entertaining and these fighters MUST bring the action. If the fighter is a runner, a holder, or a low-volume puncher, he is not welcome at ProBox TV. We are very confident that real boxing fans who crave evenly matched action fights will love this series.
ProBox TV Future Stars Series
The Future Stars Series is about following the journey of top amateur fighters who’ve recently turned pro. Will they fulfill their promise and potential, or will they crash and burn? Our founders have taken that journey and now they want to bring the fans along for the ride. Real boxing fans will genuinely appreciate the Future Stars series. Not only will you get the live fights but you’ll get behind-the-scenes docu-reality content as these young men go through the trials and tribulations of the journey.
ProBox TV Last Chance Tournament
Our Last Chance Tournament will start with 8 fighters from around the world. All were chosen based on a criteria of having had top amateur careers and had turned pro with expectations they would become a champion. Then they hit some bumps along the way, had some disappointing performances and boxing can be cruel if you take a couple of losses. All of these fighters are solid professional fighters and we thought it would be fun to give them a last chance, perhaps Roy, Antonio, Juan and Pauli can help them figure out where they went wrong and get them back on track. The winner of the tournament will get that last chance to achieve their dreams of becoming a champion.
Note they were also chosen along the lines of the contenders series, they are evenly matched and they are all action fighters. This should make for a great tournament shown on our live events.
