In the main event at Patapsco Arena,Laurel, MD middleweight Demond "D'Best At It" Nicholson saw one streak end and one continue.
For the first time in his young career, Nicholson was taken past the first and second rounds. Nicholson stopped his previous seven opponents in the first. However, Nicholson kept his overall stoppage streak alive by scoring a TKO over a very tough Taneal Goyco of Philadelphia, PA at the end of the fourth round.
The stoppage came with a bit of controversy. Late in the fourth, Nicholson dropped Goyco with a quick right hand. Goyco tried to get up twice and fell before getting up to beat the count.
As the bell sounded to end the round, Goyco walked unsteadily to his corner, which happened to be where the ringside doctors were sitting. Chief Physician Dr. John Stiller took a look at Goyco on his stool and immediately told referee Kenny Chevalier to stop the bout. The Goyco corner was furious but Stiller was very adamant about his decision.
Nicholson remains perfect at 9-0, nine KO's. Goyco is now 6-8-1, three KO's.
The co-feature saw Baltimore, MD cruiserweight Travis "Seveer" Reeves dominate Bryan "Wildman" Donahue of Philadelphia en route to a six-round unanimous decision.
Reeves hit Donahue with every punch seemingly possible. However, Donahue showed his toughness by urgent Reeves to hit him more. Reeves won by shutout on all three cards, 60-54 to raise his record to 6-2-2, two KO's while Donahue falls to 3-10-2.
Once again, the reason why results are a little late is because we were trying to do audio podcasts of each contest. Unfortunately, none of the bouts came completely in (we lost the Kornegay-Pugh bout completely).

The good news is that the Post-Fight Wrap-Up show is completely intact and noted Philadelphia writer George Hanson, Jr. joins me to recap this card.
