In one of the more competitive bouts of the year, "Mr. Hollywood" Charlie Natal won a very close and exciting four-round majority decision over Kevin "The Scarecrow" Womack, Jr. This was a great bout that really could have gone either way. Natal had a tough time at first with Womack's height. However, midway through the contest, Natal landed some brutal shots that Womack took pretty well.
Womack returned the favor in the final round and landed some vicious uppercuts that Natal somehow managed to absorb. Womack may have waited a bit too long to rally in this one. Dave Braslow saw the draw at 38-38. Kenny Chevalier saw the contest 39-38 while John Gradowski scored it 39-37.
Natal, fighting out of Fort Washington, MD, is now 2-0-1. Womack drops to 4-2, two KO's.
Coming up, Demond "D Best At It" Nicholson of Laurel, MD in a four-round contest against the debuting Brandon Priest of West Dundee, IL. By the way, I said this was a late-arriving crowd. Well, they are all here in abundance as this place got packed real quickly!
