Flowers Finishes Dowdy in “Unfinished Business” at New Daisy!
On a fight card dubbed “Unfinished Business,” Monyette Flowers came up big, winning by a TKO in the second round of the featured bout at the Omni New Daisy Theatre on Tuesday night (April 10).
Tyrone Dowdy, who went the distance against Flowers in a losing effort 2/28 at the New Daisy, was determined to bring his fans a higher-level of satisfaction. Monyette Flowers, of Flowers Power Boxing stable, vowed he was, “coming back to put somebody to sleep.”
Round 1: From the opening bell, both fighters threw punches in a frenzy and the fight looked as if it would end in the first round.
Midway through the first, Flowers pressured Dowdy against the ropes, and what looked to be a knockdown was ruled a push by Flowers (which he apologized for).
After the first, the fight became increasingly one sided.
Round 2: Flowers approached Dowdy with “unfinished business,” greeting him with and landing a barrage of punches. Sensing Dowdy was in danger, the referee stepped in to stop the fight. Flowers TKO’d Dowdy in 2.
