Boxing Results: Richardson Hitchins Outclasses Yomar Alamo
By Vince D’Writer: Super-lightweight contender Richardson Hitchins made an impressive debut with his new promotional company Matchroom, as he was able to take immediate control of his bout, and earn an eight round TKO victory over Yomar Alamo (20-2-1, 12 KOs) on Saturday night from Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio.
A product of Brooklyn, New York, Richardson Hitchins represented his parents home country of Haiti in the 2016 Olympics, and then five months later he signed with Mayweather Promotions. The undefeated contender didn’t feel Mayweather Promotions kept him as active as he wanted to be, so he made the decision to switch promotional companies in September 2022.
Eddie Hearn immediately put the new acquisition to work as the co-feature of the Montana Love vs Steve Spark DAZN boxing card. During the opening round of the November 12 co-main, Hitchins was sharp, as he controlled the round with the use of a very strong jab.
In the second and third rounds of the bout, Hitchins was in complete control of the range and distance. He continued to operate behind the jab and he started landing some effective combinations. Alamo was finding it very difficult to manufacture any substantial offense due to the fact that Hitchins was dictating the pace and the range of the fight.
In between rounds, Alamo’s cornermen were desperately trying to motivate him and get him going, as they repeatedly told Alamo to let his hands go. Unfortunately Alamo didn’t listen to his corner as round after round he gave the appearance of a fighter who was lost and confused.
While Alamo was having difficulty figuring out how to throw multiple punches, Richardson Hitchins continued to look like a ring technician as he utilized a high precision offense. While Hitchins proceeded to throw and land any shot he desired, Yomar Alamo was starting to look like a defeated fighter who had mentally checked out.
By the time the fight reached the eighth round, Hitchins was dominating the bout and pitching a shutout. He was winning every round with ease, and at the end of the eighth, the frustration in Alamo’s corner had reached the boiling point. Alamo’s cornermen were highly upset with what they felt was a lack of effort by their fighter, and as a result they decided to call an end to the contest.
Richardson Hitchins (15-0, 7 KOs) was awarded the TKO victory as he made a successful debut with his new promotional company. Due to his public feud with the main event participant, and Cleveland native Montana Love, the announcement of Hitchins being victorious was serenaded by a chorus of boos.
During his post fight interview, Hitchins graded his performance and then he received another chorus of boos from the Cleveland crowd when he boldly announced the plan he has for his boxing future.
“I already said I want Montana Love next. Y’all keep asking me that question, it’s time to ask Montana if he wants to fight me. I already said let’s get it. I came over here to Matchroom, tell him to sign the contract and let’s do it.”
