Baroni Outpoints Alfonso; Prof X wins in US Debut

Originally posted on

Phil Baroni stayed on the winning track with a decision victory over Olaf Alfonso in the main event at Palace Fighting Championship 10 on Friday at the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino.

Alfonso cut Baroni early in the first round, but from that point forward, it was all “New York Bad Ass.” Baroni stalked Alfonso (7-9) around the ring and punctuated good shots with nice takedowns. In the end, Baroni earned a unanimous nod from the judges in a main event that failed to live up to expectations.

Afterward, Baroni (13-10) apologized to the crowed and pleaded for a rematch.

“I don’t think either one of us fought our best,” said Baroni, a victor in three straight. “We have to do this again. Please have me back, and I’ll knock him out.”


Finally, Cage Rage veteran Xavier Foupa-Pokam made a successful stateside debut, as he submitted the American Kickboxing Academy’s Richard Montoya with a first-round armbar. Obviously overmatched, Montoya (6-5) never threatened Foupa-Pokam (18-9), as the Frenchman ended the match 1:13 into the opening round.
