Things didn't start well for Dominic Wade tonight. First, his bout with Dashon Johnson was shortened from eight rounds to six. Then the bout was pulled off the Showtime Extreme telecast because the two previous bouts went the distance.
Then, Wade got off to a bad start in the ring when Johnson dropped him with a right hand 15 seconds into the first round.
From there, however, Wade righted the ship and kept Johnson off balance with jabs and body shots to win a unanimous decision. The scores were 57-56, 58-55 and 59-55.
Wade is now 14-0, 10 KO's. Johnson falls to 15-14-3, five KO's.
