NORTH BERGEN, NJ (December 16, 2011)—Danny “Little Mac” McDermott thrilled an enthusiastic crowd at Schuetzen Park by scoring a fourth round stoppage over Bryan Abraham in a scheduled six round Jr. Welterweight bout that highlighted a five bout card promoted by Rich Komissar Promotions as part of the new series : Tommy Gallagher Winners Have Scars.
McDermott and Abraham traded heavy blows for much of the fight with each guy having an advantage at various times in the bout.
McDermott landed a heavy combination that sent Abraham back to the ropes and the North Bergen native jumped on his foe and the fight was stopped at 2:38 of round four.
Colombian Cruiserweight Santander Silgado opened the show with a second round destruction over Glen Williams in a bout scheduled for six rounds.
Silgado dropped Williams in each frame with big right hands and the bout was stopped immediately after Williams was sent to the canvas in the second by referee Earl Morton.
Tevin Farmer of Philadelphia scored a second round stoppage over Brooklyn’s Ian James in a scheduled four round Lightweight bout.
Daniel Crabtree battered and spoiled the pro debut of crowd favorite Danny Terrill in round three of their scheduled four round Welterweight bout.

“This show is exactly what we had in mind when we thought up the series”, said Komissar
