In the opening contest of the Putney Promotions card at the Sphinx Club in Washington, DC, local welterweight Cornell "Hitman" Hines won a relatively easy four-round unanimous decision over Samuel Forjoe of The Bronx, NY.
Hines was the aggressor throughout the bout, although Forjoe's awkward style made him hard for Hines to hit at times. Forjoe fought in a mostly defensive manner, allowing Hines to win by shutout across the board, 40-36. Hines goes the distance for the first time and remains undefeated at 3-0, two KO's. Forjoe remains winless at 0-4.
