In front of a sold-out crowd at the Comanche Nation Casino in Lawton, Oklahoma on Friday night, hometown middleweight fan favorite George “Comanche Boy” Tahdooahnippah (31-0-1, 23 KOs) stopped Gundrick “Sho Gun” King (18-9, 11 KOs) in the third round to claim the NABA title. Tahdooahnippah battered King throughout the bout. After an accidental clash of heads in the third round caused a cut over King’s left eye, King’s corner requested that the referee stop the bout and Tahdooahnippah was declared the winner.
In the co-main event, middleweight Don Mouton (11-4-1, 9 KOs) landed the harder, stronger punches and was awarded an eight round majority decision over Abel Perry (18-6, 9 KOs).
Super middleweight David Lujuan (3-0-1, 1 KO) stayed undefeated, winning a four round unanimous decision over Ritchie Cherry (2-5, 1 KO).
Middleweight Chris Barnes (2-1-1, 1 KO) won a four round battle over Willie Gilbert (0-1-1) in a rematch of their draw six weeks ago.
Rounding out the card, heavyweight Constantin Bejenaru (8-0, 2 KOs) survived a first round knockdown to stop pro debuting Dwayne Jackson in the second round.
Said Joe DeGuardia of Star Boxing who promoted the event, “We’re very proud of George’s performance and highly impressed with the crowd and passion the fans had throughout the card. It was a terrific show and we look forward to returning to the Comanche Nation Casino for future events.”
