A “Homecoming, The Return of Jeff Left Hook Lacy,” took place this past Friday night at the USF Sundome Arena in Tampa, Florida as former super middleweight titleholder Jeff Lacy’s (25-2-0, 17 KOs) comeback to the ring was a successful one as he defeated Otis Griffin (19-5-2, 3 KOs) in a close ten round majority decision. Lacy, coming off of a loss to Jermain Taylor in his last bout, did just enough to get by the game challenge of Griffin, who was the winner of Oscar De La Hoya’s “The Next Great Champ” reality boxing series. Final scores were 96-94, 97-93 and 95-95. Heavyweight prospect Lenroy “TNT” Thomas (12-1-0, 8 KOs) was very impressive in the co-feature of the evening as he fought Wes Taylor (7-13-1, 9 KO) stopping him within two rounds. The seven bout fight card was presented by Left Hook Promotions and One Punch Productions. Click here for the entire ringside report and photo gallery.
