The comeback of Sechew Powell

By Matt Richardson

Ed Mulholland

Ed Mulholland

There was a time not too long ago when junior middleweight Sechew Powell was one of the brightest prospects coming out of New York City. 20 wins, no losses and 11 wins coming by way of knockout. A fixture on Lou DiBella’s monthly Broadway Boxing series, the well spoken Powell was starting to become a force to be reckoned with at 154 pounds. But then the results started to fluctuate: a decision loss to Kassim Ouma was followed by a less than scintillating win over Ishe Smith. Powell bounced back to win two in a row by knockout but then, shockingly, was stopped by Deandre Latimore in a seventh round technical knockout loss in the summer of 2008. He has only fought twice since and only one of those fights took place this year. But on December 12, Powell (now 25-2, 15 KO’s) returns to box Antonio Mesquita at the Paris in Las Vegas, Nevada. For the Brooklyn born and raised boxer, it marks a chance to get back to where he once was. (more…)

Fightwriter on Camacho-Campas

By Graham Houston

In an oddity of a fight on Friday, Hector “Machito” Camacho Jr. meets Luis “Yory Boy” Campas in what is being billed as “Revenge of the Son”. I don’t know about “revenge” because Campas fought a draw with Camacho’s famous dad, Hector — he didn’t beat the 48-year-old “Macho”.  Anyway, now it is the turn of the “little male puppy” — I believe that is how “Machito” translates — to try to go one better than the old man . . . More
