What a Short Night in Florence, SC

(JULY 19) Promoter Reggie Lewis of In This Corner Promotions presented his twelfth professional event on Saturday July 16, 2005 with a 5 bout fight card held at the Florence Civic Center.

The first bout of the night, Jerry Johnson from Tennessee came a long way to get TKO’d by the Atlanta’s boxer Jean Michel originating from Haiti. This fight was over by 2 minutes 15 seconds in the 1st round.

The second bout went the distance with South Carolina’s Davit “The Russian Nightmare” Gogichaisvili winning by split decision over Mickey Stackhouse also of South Carolina. The Russian Nightmare got back to his game plan going into 2nd round and with the fans on their feet through the 4th round. By the end of the night the majority of the fans considered this bout to be the best fight of the night.

Bout 3 of the night was not an exciting one at all. Both boxers coming from Tennessee, Hans Banks looked as though he had never been in the ring before, much less put on gloves. Lafarrell “Fabulous Fairway” Bunting landed a couple of body shots and Banks went down only 1 minute 45 seconds into the first round. Once again we had a 1st round TKO that improves Fabulous Fairway’s record to 10-1-1.

Bout 4 was a title fight for the WBB Lightweight title. Donna “Nature Girl” Biggers scored a 2nd round KO over Jennifer Johnson. Johnson came on strong in the first round and landed some hard right hands, but the Nature Girl’s impeccable timing allowed her to counter punch and drop Camden, SC’s Johnson with a straight right to the chin. Biggers advances her record to 14(13KO’s)-1-1. The Nature Girl now holds the WBE Women’s Super Featherweight title, WIBC Featherweight title, and the WBB Lightweight title. Not too shabby for someone who has been in the sport for only 2 years. However, Donna is still waiting on someone that will go the distance with her and give her a real fight.

The last and 5th bout of the night scheduled for 8 rounds was a heavyweight match between Moultrie “Mooch” Witherspoon from White Rock Boxing and Kenneth “Tiny” Williams boxing out of Palmetto Boxing Academy. Round one was nothing more that each boxer becoming familiar with each other. The hard shots began in the 2nd round with Mooch landing several body punches that did not faze Williams. Williams retaliated with shots of his own. In round 3 White Rock’s undefeated heavyweight threw a flurry of head and body blows; again Tiny took them with no problem. Both fighters exchanged more hard punches in rounds 4 and 5. Williams unable or unwilling to answer the 6th round bell, Witherspoon wins this bout with a TKO in the 5th round. This was a good tactical fight and another great fight of the night.
