Rochester’s Nick Brinson successfully defended his New York State Middleweight Title, while Utica-native Andy Mejias remained undefeated on Saturday at Turning Stone Resort and Casino’s Pro-Boxing Fight Night.

Mejias, a super middleweight, was sharp and in shape as he improved to 12-0 with a sixth round TKO of Mark Anderson (3-9-1), of South Carolina.

Brinson (10-1-2) took a unanimous decision over Markus Williams (10-3-0) in what was a rematch of a previous bout, also won by Brinson as he retained his NYS middleweight belt.

The night was not as joyous for two other Utica-based fighters who both came up short.

Jose Pagan lost a 39-37 decision to Puerto Rican fighter Jacob Solis, in what was the first profession bout for both boxers.

Anolan Rigal, a Cuban born fighter who now lives locally, suffered a TKO loss to Philadelphia’s Josh Bowles. Rigal dropped to 1-3-1, while Bowles looked very impressive as he moved to 6-0-0.

Other fights: Jose Sanez moved to 3-0 with a fourth round TKO of Jeremy Graves, who was making his pro debut. Mount Vernon’s Kalvin Jenkins (1-1-2) took a split-decision victory over Rayshawn Meyers (4-15-1) of Ohio. Martez Potter of Syracuse defeated Eric George as each made his pro-debut in a super middleweight contest. Samuel Neeqauye of Ghana made his U.S. debut a good one, upping his mark to 18-0 with a unanimous win over Texas’ Frederico Flores Jr.
