Thomas "Top Dog" Williams, Jr. has lost his first pro bout as former world champion Gabriel Campillo of Spain stopped Williams at the end of the fifth round due to a bad cut over Williams's left eye at the Little Creek Casino and Resort in Shelton, WA.
Williams was in a very tough battle that fell apart for him in the fourth round when Campillo landed a right hand that cut Williams. Williams and his cornermen seemed to be unnerved by the cut, as this was the first time this had happened. After the fifth round, the corner called the doctor over to look at the cut and the bout was stopped.
The bout was an IBF elimination contest and with the win, Campillo vaults to number two in the world. Campillo's record is now 24-6-1, 10 KO's. Williams is now 17-1, 12 KO's.
Also, on the ESPN2 telecast, Richmond, VA's "The Chosen One" Immanuwel Aleem scored a sixth-round TKO over a very game Juan Carlos Rojas of Mexico. The stoppage came at 2:45 of the sixth. Aleem is now 10-0, six KO's while Rojas falls to 6-7-1, four KO's.
