Professional prizefighting made its triumphant return to the Xcite Center at Parx Casino in Bensalem, PA on March 1, 2019. The co-main event of the evening was Jerome Conquest against Vinnie Denierio in a six round contest. Jerome Conquest, the pride of the Strawberry Mansion section of Philadelphia, was triumphant in his return to the ring after a year away due to injury. Conquest won in a unanimous decision made by the judges.
During the six round contest, Conquest(10-3, 1 K0) controlled the action against Elmira’s Vinnie Denierio, winning the fight 60-54 on one judge’s scorecard and 59-55 on the other two to capture the USBF North American Lightweight Championship Title.
Conquest, 33, had been out of action since tearing an achilles while training last spring. Conquest bounced back from a tough first-round knockout loss to Tyrone Lucky at Parx last March.
“We’re so proud of Jerome. He fought such a great fight despite his injuries from last March, ” Gary Barbera explained. “We’re proud to support a Strawberry Mansion native, and we can’t wait to see where his boxing career takes him.”
