Olympian super middleweight Andre Dirrell (18-0, 13 KOs) scored a sixth round TKO over game Derrick Findley (13-3, 8 KOs) on Saturday night at the Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Oklahoma. Dirrell nearly stopped Findley in round one, but the gutsy Findley continued to take punishment for six full rounds before his corner stopped the beating. Impressive performance for Dirrell.
In a battle of unbeaten jr middleweights, Harry Joe Yorgey (22-0-1, 10 KOs) scored an exciting ninth round knockout against Ronald Hearns (21-1, 17 KOs). Hearns, son of ring legend Thomas “The Hitman” Hearns, got off to an aggressive start, but in round four Yorgey dropped Hearns with a flurry of punches. Hearns was credited with a knockdown also in that round when Yorgey went down from a left hook he seemed to partially block. Yorgey dropped Hearns face first with a left hook in round five, but Hearns survived the round. Yorgey finally dropped Hearns again in round nine and this time Hearns was counted out by referee Steve Smoger. Time was 2:59.
Lightweight Jose Guzman (7-0, 5 KOs), brother of former world champion Joan Guzman, outworked previously unbeaten Juan Noriega (3-1, 3 KOs), winning a four-round unanimous decision by scores of 40-35, 40-36, 40-36.
Unbeaten heavyweight Bowie Tupou (17-0, 13 KOs) demolished journeyman Marcus Rhode (34-38-2, 29 KOs), putting Rhode on the deck four times in the first 81 seconds.
Heavyweight prospect Chazz Witherspoon (24-1, 17 KOs) scored a TKO at 1:43 of round three against journeyman Travis Fulton (14-23, 14 KOs). Fulton was down in round two and Witherspoon forces a referee’s stoppage in round three.
Unbeaten super middleweight Anthony Dirrell (16-0, 13 KOs) needed just 1:32 to demolish Dominique Azeez (2-17). A body shot put Azeez down and out.
Cruiserweight Isiah Thomas (3-0, 3 KOs) got a first round stoppage of Sam Norwood (0-3). Seven unanswered prompted the referee to wave it off at the 1:49 mark.
