“Comanche Boy” Tahdooahnippah Wins Big In Oklahoma
In front of a sold-out crowd of passionate boxing fans at the Comanche Nation Casino in Lawton, Oklahoma on Friday night, hometown fan favorite George “Comanche Boy” Tahdooahnippah put on a sensational performance, stopping Gundrick “Sho Gun” King and winning the NABA Middleweight Title.
Battering the stronger King over the first two rounds with a full arsenal of power shots, Tahdooahnippah had the fans standing and cheering throughout the action.
An accidental clash of heads in the third round caused a cut over King’s left eye. After the stanza, the Tuscaloosa, Alabama native’s corner requested that the referee stop the bout and Tahdooahnippah was declared the winner.
Staying undefeated Tahdooahnippah improved to 31-0-1 (23KO’s), while King moved to 18-9-0 (11KO’s).
Said Joe DeGuardia of Star Boxing who promoted the event, “We’re very proud of George’s performance and highly impressed with the crowd and passion the fans had throughout the card. It was a terrific show and we look forward to returning to the Comanche Nation Casino for future events.”
In the co-main event, Houston, Texas native Don Mouton and Abel Perry of Colorado Springs, CO, stood toe-to-toe throughout their eight round middleweight clash in an all-action scrap. Mouton landed the harder, stronger punches and was awarded the majority decision upping his record to 11-4-1 (9KO’s), while Perry fell to 18-6-0 (9KO’s).
In the super middleweight division, David Lujuan of Wichita Falls, Texas, 3-0-1 (1KO), stayed undefeated, winning a four round unanimous decision over Oklahoma City’s Ritchie Cherry, 2-5-0 (1KO) in a fantastic, crowd pleasing fight featuring non-stop action throughout.
Tulsa, Oklahoma middleweight Chris Barnes, 2-1-1 (1KO) won a four round battle over Willie Gilbert, 0-1-1, of Oklahoma City in a rematch of their draw six weeks ago.
Rounding out the card, heavyweights provided some outstanding action as Constantin Bejenaru, 8-0-0 (2KO’s), of Bacau, Romania, survived a first round knockdown to stop pro debuting Dwayne Jackson in the second round as each fighter threw massive bombs throughout the bout.
