Mark Tucker was outworked and outhustled en route to losing a 10-round majority decision to Paul Vasquez in our main event tonight in Westminster.
Vasquez came forward repeatedly and pressured Tucker, putting him against the ropes. Tucker suffered a cut along his right eye which made things even more difficult.
One judge saw a draw at 95-95 but that score was trumped by 97-93 and 96-94 scores.
Tucker loses for the second time in his career and he is now 16-2, seven KO's. Vasquez breaks a two-bout losing streak and is now 10-4-1, three KO's. Vasquez donated his entire purse (reportedly $5,000) to the Johns Hopkins Children's Center in Baltimore, MD.
