Surviving a mid-bout cut, Bowie, MD super middleweight "The King's Son" Jerry Odom scored a gutsy seventh-round technical knockout over Vilier Quinonez in Verona, NY.
Odom dropped Quinonez in the fourth round with a right hand. However, Quinonez, who suffered a cut along his right eye in the second round, bounced back to make the fight close. Odom was cut along his left eye in the sixth round and that seemed to spur him on into the seventh when he rocked Quinonez and dropped him with two rights before referee Charlie Fitch stopped the bout at 2:25.
Odom captures the interim WBC Fecarbox Super Middleweight title and remains undefeated at 12-0, 11 KO's. Quinonez loses for the first time and he is now 8-1, five KO's.
