Jerome Wins Unanimous Decision!


Charles Jerome has won a four-round unanimous decision over the equally debuting William Monroe.  This was an ugly bout to say the very least.  Both guys missed more than they hit.

 However, Jerome won by scores of 40-36 (twice) and 39-37.
Next up:  DC light heavyweight Shaborn Ryals takes on Lamont Capers of Tobyhanna, PA.  Four rounds.

I'm not surprised, both looked like they took their pro debut as a joke. Totally out of shape. What a disappointment!

William Monroe has no prior amateur experience so that's why.

If that's the case, he had no business being in the ring. A good way to get a ft seriously hurt. Unbelievable!

DC fighters don't have to go against each other early in their career but can also get competitive fights that would allow them to improve as a fighter. Fighting soft opposition back to back at some point in time it doesn't help.

It may have been an ugly bout in terms of their skill level, but these guys were actually matched well. I would rather see two guys going at it than someone who is outclassed getting destroyed by another boxer who is far better. It was not a bad first bout to me. Both guys tried hard, got a sober learning experience about what they need to do to improve, and were standing at the end. I have seen a lot worse.

This is Daryl writing this comment: We never duck or turn down any work why would we duck Charles but work with the real fighters like tony thompsom, seth mitchell, deontray wilder just to name a few. Charles is a good kid but he wouldn't be real work for danny. It by chance they do want to work they no how to get in touch with.

Let's get back to the topic at hand, fellas. This was a fair and reasonable fight for these two guys -- no question about it. Yes, both still have a lot to learn but, provided that each is matched with boxers of similar ability, I have no problem with them fighting pro.
