Temple Hills, MD super middleweight D'Mitrius Ballard remained undefeated with a four-round unanimous decision over Lekan Byfield of Yonkers, NY tonight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.
Here is the report from Matt Richardson of Fightnews.com who called the bout an "easy four-round beatdown."
D’Mitrius Ballard won his third professional fight with an easy four-round beatdown of Lekan Byfield. All three judges submitted identical scores of 40-36 for the unbeaten Ballard. Byfield started the fight by sprinting out to the center of the ring but was soon met with a combination that put him in a backward direction.
That would be the way the lanky Byfield was forced for the remainder of the bout as Ballard seemingly landed any punch he wanted to, wobbling his opponent regularly. Byfield came out aggressively in the final round, seeming to know he needed a knockout to secure a victory. He actually connected with some decent shots in the corner but Ballard was able to slip his way out of the predicament and was soon punching back himself to secure the shut-out decision. Ballard is now 3-0 with two wins via stoppage while Byfield dropped to 3-6-2 overall.
