NEW YORK (February 28, 2022) – It was a perfect weekend for Split-T Management fighters as six members of the top management stable posted wins in as many outings.
On Thursday, Sonny Conto remained undefeated with a six-round unanimous decision over Mike Marshall in front of a capacity crowd at Live! Casino and Hotel Philadelphia.
Conto dominated the fight as he was able to land hard shots to the head and body. He was very effective with his jab that eventually set up some nice straight rights and left hooks to the body. Marshall showed a good chin, but was never able to get any consistent offense of his own on-track.
Conto, 226.1 lbs of Philadelphia won by shutout margins of 60-54 on all cards, and is now 9-0. Marshall, 248.8 lbs of Danbury, CT is 6-3-1.
Conto is promoted by Top Rank.
On Friday night, Marques and Dominic Valle scored impressive stoppage victories in Plant City, Florida.
Marques Valle needed just 89 seconds to dispose of Robbie Rose in their scheduled six-round welterweight contest.
Valle of Wesley Chapel, Florida is now 4-0 with four knockouts. Rose of Richburg, South Carolina is 1-2.
Dominick Valle stopped Nelson Colon Torres in round three of a scheduled four-round super featherweight contest.
Valle raises his perfect record to 3-0 with three knockouts. Torres of Vayey, Puerto Rico is 4-7.

On Saturday night in Philadelphia, Ray Robinson shook off a two-and-a-half year layoff by stopping veteran Silverio Ortiz after round three of a scheduled six-round junior middleweight bout in front of a big crowd at the 2300 Arena.
The eight-bout card was promoted by RDR Promotions.
Robinson was very sharp with his punches as he continuously banged shots off the head of Ortiz. Robinson had a big round three as he had Ortiz in trouble several times. The corner of Ortiz had seen enough and bowed their charge out of the fight.
Robinson of Philadelphia is 25-3-2 with 13 knockouts. Ortiz of Mexico is 37-29.
In Atlanta, super middleweight, Money Powell IV stopped veteran Fidel Monterrosa Munoz in round two of their scheduled eight-round bout.
