Taneal "Spider" Goyco has given Jeremy Trussell his first pro loss and did it in dominating fashion, scoring a sixth-round knockout.
Goyco's camp developed an exceptional game plan that their boxer followed to perfection. Goyco's jab was crisp throughout and kept Trussell off-balance. Goyco also neutralized Trussell's best punch, the overhand right hand. Trussell did have success using his left hand but he didn't use it nearly enough.
In the fourth round, Goyco dropped Trussell with a solid right-left combination. From that point on, Trussell was in defensive mode, hoping for an opportunity to turn the fight around.
That opportunity never came. Late in the sixth round, Goyco landed a stunning straight left that stunned Trussell and sent him crashing to the canvas. Trussell tried to get up but couldn't and the bout was stopped at 2:34.
Trussell suffers his first pro loss and he is now 8-1, six KO's. Goyco evens his record at 6-6-1, three KO's.
The main event is next: Venroy "Hardwork" July of Suitland, MD (16-1-2, six KO's) versus the undefeated "Grim Reaper" Quantis Graves of Beaumont, TX (9-0-1, four KO's). Eight-round cruiserweight contest.
