Tucker Still Undefeated!

By: Gary “Digital” Williams

Eldersburg, MD: light heavyweight Mark “TNT” Tucker (10-0, 7 KOs) remained undefeated with an eight round unanimous decision over veteran Andre Hemphill (7-11-2, 4 KOs) of Philadelphia, PA in the main event at the Shipley Arena in Westminster, MD. Tucker used a strong jab throughout the contest to offset the offense of the shorter Hemphill. The visiting boxer managed to tag Tucker a few times but Tucker was able to use his height to help gain his victory.

In the co-feature, Laurel, MD junior middleweight Lenwood “Mr. Composure” Dozier (5-1-1, 2 KOs) lost his first pro bout as he was stopped by Ken Dunham (6-8, 4 KOs) of Rock Hill, SC at 2:25 of the third round. Dunham pressured Dozier throughout this bout which was a rematch of an April bout in Westminster in which Dozier won by majority decision. Dunham landed the telling blow in the third when he threw a crushing uppercut that cut and dropped Dozier to the canvas. Dozier beat the count but couldn’t continue.

Also on the card, junior welterweight prospect Emanuel “Transformer” Taylor (2-0, 2 KOs) of Edgewood, MD scored a blistering second-round knockout over Bryan “The Brick” Abraham (1-2-1, 1 KO) of Schenectady, NY. The bout was stopped at 2:13 of the round.
Baltimore junior middleweight Omar “The Mean Machine” Sims lost a six-round unanimous decision to Jamar “The Truth” Freeman of Wilson, NC. Sims is now (1-1-2, 1 KO) while Freeman remains undefeated at (3-0-1.)

“Showtime” Tyrone Wright won an all-DC pro debut lightweight bout with a four-round unanimous decision over Hugh Hinds.

Buffalo, NY junior welterweight Vincent Arroyo remained undefeated with a second-round knockout over Amaury Torres of Miami, FL. Arroyo is now (9-0, 6 KOs.)

Newport News, VA junior middleweight, Jeremiah “The Bounty Hunter” Wiggins (3-0-1, 1 KO) fought to a strange three-round draw with veteran Clarence “Sonny Bono” Taylor (13-22-4, 6 KOs). of Wilmington, DE. Wiggins unintentionally hit Taylor with a hard punch to the groin. Taylor could not continue after the five-minute rest period. Under Maryland rules, a bout cannot be won after a low blow, therefore it was a draw.

Also on the card, cruiserweight Daniel “Bad Boy” Kooij of Vero Beach, FL won a four-round unanimous decision over Clarence Moore of Charlotte, NC. Kooij (pronounced KOY) is now (4-0, 2 KO’s) while Moore is (5-8-1, 5 KOs.)

The Maryland Boxing Club promoted the card. The matchmaker was Josh Hall.
