Former WBC heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman (48-7-2, 39 KOs) scored a sixth round KO over game and rugged veteran Damon Reed (45-14, 32 KOs) on Saturday night at the Scope Arena in Norfolk, Virginia. It took “The Rock” some time to warm up, but when he did he dropped Reed face first for the count . Time was 2:20 of round six.
In a super middleweight co-feature, Henry “Sugar Poo” Buchanan (20-2, 13 KOs) beat local favorite Bobby Jordan Jr. (8-3-1, 4 KOs) in a nine round war. The bout was stopped 22 seconds into round nine due to an accumulation of damage suffered by Jordon, including a bad cut.
