DC welterweight Kareem "Reemo" Martin won a four-round majority decision over Baltimore's Kevin "The Scarecrow" Womack, Jr. in the co-feature bout at the Sphinx Club.
Martin came out strong in the first two rounds as he landed shots to Womack's head and body. However, the veteran Womack seemed to turn the tide in the second half of the bout as he started to pressure the shorter Martin.
There was a pivotal point in the third round of the contest. Womack seemed to wobble Martin with a right hand. However, as Martin was staggering from Womack's punches, referee Brent Bovell momentarily halted the action and did not rule a knockdown for Womack.
When the scorecards were announced, judges Dave Braslow and Wayne Smith scored the bout for Martin, 38-37 and 39-37 respectively. Judge Manuel Vicens saw the draw at 38-38.
Martin bounces back into the win column at 10-2-1, three KO's. Womack falls to 8-16-4, six KO's.
