Report By Michael Sheffield, Post Fight Interviews by Tracy Morin,

The 10-Round NABO Jr. Welterweight Championship between Karim Mayfield  and Patrick Lopez was everything the crowd at The Fitz has come to expect over the event’s history. After a slow start, Mayfield (14-0-1 10 KOs) and Lopez (20-4 12 KOs) would open the third round wrestling into the ropes. Lopez would leave the exchange with a cut over his left eye that bled and threatened to derail the fight. However, his corner would do an outstanding job stopping the bleeding throughout the fight.

Dusty Harrison vs. Trenton Titsworth

Harrison (1-0), who stole the show during June’s TNT at the DCC event in Southaven would make his Fitz debut against Trenton Titsworth, who had at least a six inch height advantage. Harrison would show a desire to mix it up early with the rail thin Titsworth (who weighed in at 123 pounds, which was debatable).

Titsworth proved he can take a punch, as Harrison would land several hard jabs. However, the effectiveness of the punches may have been tempered by the fact that Harrison had to reach up to hit his opponent. Titsworth resorted to holding Harrison halfway through the fight, and that strategy would allow him to survive the fight and deprive Harrison of his first knockout, even though he clearly had his opponent in trouble quite a few times. Harrison would take a unanimous decision, 40-36.
