Wyman's Boxing Club in Stockton Springs had a successful night at the Portland Expo on Saturday, Nov. 16 with two of its fighters picking up victories.

Brandon Berry, 26, of West Forks and Joel Bishop, 27, of Clinton train at Wyman's.

In the pro division at light welterweight (140-143 pounds), Berry earned his fourth win in four matches with a knockout of Paul Souza of Somerville, Mass. Three of Berry's four wins have come by way of knockout.

However, perhaps the match of the night was Bishop taking on Justin Kinnie of Saco in the amateur heavyweight division (178-201 pounds).

Bishop won a split decision after three 3-minute rounds.

Professional fights, comparatively, consist of four 3-minute rounds.

Bishop is 10-4 and has “defeated everyone that's ever beat him,” said Ken “Skeet” Wyman, owner of Wyman's Boxing Club.

“He had fought Justin Kinnie twice prior to this and lost two close decisions,” said Wyman, also the boxers' trainer. “And Joel basically begged me for a rematch.”

It turned out to be the right move. Not only did Bishop win, but KO Digest voted his bout Best Fight of the Night, amateur or pro. He also was named Outstanding Boxer of the Night by USA Boxing.

Saturday's event had five professional and two amateur bouts.

“It was a great match given the circumstances and them being two different sizes,” said Wyman of the 5-foot-8-inch Bishop, who was giving up eight inches to the 6-4 Kinnie. “But I knew what Joel was capable of.”

The Nov. 16 card was the first boxing match at the Portland Expo in 20 years, Wyman said.
