Over the past weekend, a couple of Virginia boxers who have competed in and around the Beltway participated in bouts and we have these results.
Richmond, VA super middleweight Immanuwel Aleem, who trains in Maryland with George Peterson, scored a fourth-round TKO over Cameron Allen on Friday night at the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, CA. Aleem remains undefeated at 9-0, five KO's. Aleem is in the same camp as David Grayton, who also scored a knockout on that same card.
In Greensboro, NC, Scott "Cujo" Sigmon of Bedford, VA battled to an eight-round majority draw with undefeated DeAndre Robinson-Neal of Columbia, SC at the Coliseum Pavilion. According to reports, Neal was ahead in the bout during the first four rounds. Sigmon suffered a bad cut over his left eye because of a headbutt in round five that seemed to turn the tide of battle. Sigmon was able to sweep the last three bouts and earn the draw. Neal won one card at 78-75 while the other two judges saw the draw at 76-76.
The draw is the first for both men in their careers. Sigmon is now 24-5-1, 13 KO's. Neal remains undefeated at 12-0-1, five KO's.
