 SANTIAGO WINS 8TH STRAIGHT

“Junior welterweight Milton Santiago, just 18 years old, continued his whirlwind rookie year with a shutout decision over Pottstown “Animal” Travis Thompson. Thompson, riding a four-bout unbeaten streak, the longest of his career, is used to testing promising young fighters and always does his best to introduce them to the grittier side of professional boxing.

Southpaw Thompson, 7-12-3, 3 KOs, did his best to ruffle Santiago’s feathers. The veteran brawled, held, and refused to take a backward step.  However, Santiago, now 8-0, 3 KOs, kept his composure and skillfully controlled the fight. Santiago looked strong and skilled, and by round two had Thompson rattled, which is not an easy task.

Still “the Animal” kept raging but could do little more than land a few wild shots. His best punch, a brutish left hand, came just before the end of the fight in round four. But Thompson never did enough to win a round, and all three judges, Carter, Braslow and Poturaj, scored the fight 40-36 for Santiago. You couldn’t score it any other way.

For Santiago it was a good test against one of the toughest local boxers on the scene.  Milton’s performance was impressive, as was his year – 8 fights, 8 wins. With a few weeks left in the year, Santiago might manage to squeeze another fight in, but assuming he can’t, it’s safe to say he had one of the best rookie seasons in recent years.”
