Scott “Cujo” Sigmon (7-1, 3 KOs) scored a third-round TKO over Nicholas Schleich of Columbus, Nebraska (7-3, 3 KOs) at The Lynchburg City Armory in Lynchburg, VA. Sigmon began the bout by going right at Schleich and working the body of his 6’4″ foe. “That body was a big target and I knew I had to take away his jab,” said Sigmon. “After a few hard rounds downstairs I picked up the pace upstairs and went for the knockout.” Sigmon dropped Schleich midway through the third round with a hard overhand right. The determined Schleich was trying to get to his feet when referee Chris Wollenson waived off the bout.
Charlottesville, VA’s “Wartime” George Rivera (11-4, 4 KOs) also won by third-round TKO over Jesse Williams of Youngstown, OH. Rivera dropped the southpaw Williams three times in the second round all with straight right hands. Referee Wollenson allowed the bout to continue into the third round where another straight right hand by Rivera dropped Williams and finally persuaded the referee to stop the bout.
Fairfax, VA’s “White Lightning” Todd Wilson (6-0, 1 KO) remained undefeated with a four-round unanimous decision over Lynchburg’s Maurice Chalmers. In a battle of two classy southpaws, the smaller Wilson whose foe Chalmers outweighed him by nearly ten pounds, did just enough to win every round of the four round bout.
Former USBA cruiserweight champion Emmanuel Nwodo of Baltimore, MD scored a first-round TKO over veteran Lenzie Morgan of Youngstown, OH. The hard punching Nwodo dropped the durable Morgan three times in the first round. Nwodo’s vicious overhand right prompted one former pugilist sitting ringside to say, “I would certainly hate to get hit by that guy!”
Roanoke, VA junior welterweight David “D-Hop” Hopkins (3-0, 1 KO) won by four-round unanimous decision over Antwon “Supreme” Barrett of Portsmouth, VA. Hopkins outworked and outhustled the taller Barrett to win every round of the contest.
Rounding out the bout, Brazilian super middleweight Issac Rodrigues (18-0, 16 KOs) won a very close and highly competitive eight-round unanimous decision over veteran Marcos Primera of Asheboro, NC.
