The Decemeber edition of Boxing on Beale, promoted by Knockout Promotions and Knox and Cerbe Managment and Training, was held this past Tuesday evening at the New Daisy Theatre on Historic Beale Street, Memphis, TN.
Fan turnout was solid, concidering the Memphis Grizzlies faced the New York Knicks just across Beale at the Forum. Loyal fans filed in and packed the seats of the small but big hearted, New Daisy Theatre.
Virgous (1-2) – Watkins (2-0)
Kiana Vigious and Kita Watkins ( Eldorado, AR) faced each other in a rare female main event at the New Daisy Theatre. Although she had the support of the crowd Virgous just couldn’t get things going against Watkins.
In the first round Virgous and Watkins traded punches in the center of the ring as if it were the final round. Virgous did land some hard shots but could not capitalize. Watkins could. During their exchanges Watkins’ leather found their mark often with damaging effects at the expense of Virgous as twice in the first Virgous was issued standing 8 counts.
It was much the same story in the second stanza. Virgous came out game and swing. Watkins did as well but with better results. At 1:35 of round two referee Alan Lovell stepped between Watkins and Virgous after a vicious Watkins attack left Virgous defenseless.
Virgous was not happy with Lovell’s decision to stop the fight but in our opinion he made the right call without doubt. To her credit, Virgous didn’t quit when things got tough and she showed tremendous heart.
Watkins, surprised many during her demolition of a tough and game opponent in this fight. She improves to 2-0.
Bruce (1-5, 1 KO) – Fairweather (0-2)
Who says you that can’t win a fight moving backwards? That is exactly how Jonathan Bruce set up his KO win last night at the New Daisy.
Jermey Fairweather came out with guns blazing in the first round. Initially, it was a wild sight but things settled down. Jonathan Bruce spent the majority of the round back pedaling. Eventually, he learned that he could land with his jab as Fairweather moved recklessly forward. The jabs were not hard but over time they caused damage.
In the opening seconds of round two Bruce connected a single jab that momentarily stunned Fairweather. Just as Fairweather began to take a step forward he slumped to the canvas. He didn’t make the ten count. Official time was :38 seconds of round two. This victory is Bruce’s first.
Tolley (3-5, 2 kO’s)- Tucker (0-2)
Jesse Tolley was accurate with his jab in this bout. Tucker looked to counters and play opossum to land stray booms. In round two Tucker was issued a standing eight count and at the end of round two he decided not to continue. Tolley wins by TKO RD 2.
Cudjoe (10-3, 7 KO’s) – McWhirter (2-8, 2 KO’s)
In round one Greg McWhirter (255 lb) did a great job of getting to the body of the 290 pound broad-shouldered Grant Cudjoe. McWhirter’s body attack faded thought when, late in the first, Cudjoe let his jab go and it found rest on McWhirter’s face.
In round two Cudjoe turned the pressure on and connected multiple punchs that sent McWhirter into the ropes. McWhirter was issued a standing 8 count.
Cudjoe continued with his onslaught by making contact with his piston-like jab. Then He went at McWhirter with a thunderous left hook to the body, right hook to the body followed by a left to the temple. The initial left sent McWhirter reeling against ropes where referee Clay Huddleston waived the fight off after McWhirter could not continue. Official ruling was KO 2, 2:09.
Rounding out the night was Gary Britt (1-2, 1 KO – weight not available) who KO’d Joey Baker (0-1, 170 lb) in round two of a scheduled four round light heavyweight bout. In a lopsided fight, Willie Diamond (4-6, 2 ko’s – 140 lb) defeated Vanerlei Barnes (0-1 – 136 lb) by KO at 1:04 of round two. Jeremy Glen Hayes (1-0, 1 ko – 177 lb) took out Scott Baker (0-2 – 167 lb) at 1:23 of round one.
