July 29, 2017 – Long Beach, CA – The Queen Mary in association with Black Tree and Roy Englebrecht Promotions hosted Rumble on the Water 2, a night of professional boxing that aired on the CBS Sports Network.
The night showcased a fight card full of the sweet science as these pugilists put their bodies on the line, not only to entertain the live crowd, but the viewing audience at home. These fighters honored the ancients of Sumeria as they continue the tradition that was begun in the 3rd millennium BCE.
Tonight’s main event features Rumble on the Water’s debut of headlining Featherweights, Tramaine Williams and Angel Luna.
Here are tonight’s results as follow:
Welterweight – Eric Gomez (Debut) vs. Raul Calderon (Debut)
This fight went back-and-forth between the fighters as Calderon had Gomez rocked a few times during the first two rounds. Gomez showed heart in the third round by having Calderon on three ropes. In the fourth and final round, Calderon looked like he was swinging for the fences as he was looking for the finish.
Your winner with a score of 40-36, 40-36, 40-36, by unanimous decision, Raul Calderon!
Heavyweight -Jonnie Rice (6-2-1) vs. Ridley “Cane Corso” Hernandez
Hernandez wasted no time by rushing Rice in the first, who used his reach to create distance and slow the pace. Throughout the fight Hernandez lunged forward with his left hook, attempting to get on the inside, only to get his nose busted open in the second.
By the third, Hernandez charged straight into a jab by Rice only to have his nose bloodied nose again. During the fourth round Hernandez would throw jabs to the body but mostly hooks to the head to work his way closer to Rice.
In the fifth Rice stunned Hernandez with a straight right, showing the most offensive in this entire fight. In the final round, they touch gloves and Hernandez again leads with a lunging left hook. Rice finally leads with his jab, but has done little to be thought of the door card leader.
You’re winner with a score of, 59-55, 58-56, 59-55, Jonnie Rice!
Co-Main Event, Super Middleweight – Junior “The Young God” Younan (12-0) vs. Mike “The Menace” Guy (9-2-1)
Younan, the former Junior Olympian starts the fight using his fundamentals while Guy forces his way in to close the distance in the first as they banged it out against the ropes to end the round. In the second, you could see the really signs of fatigue on Guy as he was punching himself out allowing Younan to show his counter punching skills by forcing his opponent against the ropes to only end the round in the center of the ring.
To begin the third, Guy came out with his jab, but Younan was able to sidestep to his left and counter. In the fourth, Younan does a tremendous job in his counter striking by making Guy miss, then making him pay.
Going into the fifth, Guy turned more aggressive, but Younan kept his composure, continuing to fight his style of boxing. The sixth round showed, Guy still being more of the aggressor as neither fighter wanted it to go to the judges. Guy losses a point for throwing Younan to the canvas as the round came to a close.
The seventh round was a much slower pace as each fighter looked to pick they punch rather than to swing for the fences. Younan continued his counter striking ways, ending the round in his corner. The eighth and final found have us, more of the same, with Guy rushing in and Younan continuing to counter. Younan looked to be knocked down but the ref waves it off. Younan gets punched in the back of the head, takes a knee and now that one was counted as a knock down, which is confusing.
Your winner with a score of, 78-73, 76-75, 76-75, Junior Younan!
Main Event, Featherweight – Tramaine “The Mighty Midget” Williams (11-0) vs. William “Chirizo” Gonzalez (30-7)

You’re winner by K.O. at 1:34 of the very first round, Tremaine Williams!
