CENTRAL POINT—Rogue Valley Rumble IX saw two boxers make their professional debut, a 43-year-old show he still has something left in the tank, and a fighter who made the trip to the Jackson County Expo from Florida.
And even with all those fireworks, locals Troy Wohosky and Mike Wilson still stole the spotlight by the end of the night.
Central Point’s Mike Wilson, 35, put his 18-0 record on the line in the main event against Mario Aguilar.
Wilson gave the home fans exactly what they wanted, winning by unanimous decision 100-90 on all three judges’ cards. With the win, he claimes the NABA Cruiserweight Title.
Medford’s Troy Wohosky, 32, fought right before, and in just his third fight back after a four-year layoff, he also came out on top.
Wohosky, the president of Spartan Boxing, was quick to credit his students as his main inspiration.
"I had to prove myself,” Wohosky said. “To be a good leader, you have to lead by example. How are you going to be a good coach if you're behind closed doors and telling everyone else what to do? You got to be out on the front lines and that's what a good leader is in reality. I just showed it tonight in front of the city that I can do it still and that's just a blessing to me."
