Results from Lowell, Mass: McCreedy defeats Walchuk
LOWELL, Mass. (March 16, 2013) – Hometown favorite “Irish” Joey McCreedy celebrated St. Patrick’s Day in style, winning an eight-round majority decision over Canadian-invader Michael “Flash” Walchuk in tonight’s “CFC Fight Night” main event, presented by Chicago Fight Clubs Promotions, at Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell.
McCreedy (14-6-2, 6 KOs), who picked-up the vacant UBF US-Northeast light heavyweight title, hurt Walchuk (9-9, 2 KOs) in the opening round with a powerful overhand right, but McCreedy suffered a cut over his right eye in the second, and worked his way through the remainder of the fight for a hard-earned victory.
McCreedy captured the vacant UBF US-Northeast light heavyweight title.
“This was a 360-degree turn from my last fight in Lowell,” McCreedy said after the fight. “I credit my training camp, my head trainer Dicky Eklund, strength coach…my whole team, including my promoter, manager, dad, mom and girlfriend.
“I thought I had him out in the first round. I hurt him but loaded up with right hands after that for a few rounds. Dicky settled me down, though, and I started throwing combinations.”
World title challenger Osumanu Adama (21-3, 15 KOs) won a 10-round split decision (97-93, 96-94, 94-96) over veteran Grady “Bad Boy” Brewer (30-15, 16 KOs). Because Adama weighed in one-half pound over the limit, he was ineligible to win the WBC Continental Americas, IBO Intercontinental and UBF Inter-Continental middleweight championships. Adama is rated No. 11 by the International Boxing Federation (IBF).
Former world champion “Vicious” Vivian Harris (30-9-2, 19 KOs) snapped an eight-fight unbeaten streak (0-6-1, 1 NC), dating back to 2008, with an eight-round decision over Shakha Moore (11-19-3, 2 KOs).
A knockdown in the final round was the difference as Maine middleweight Russell Lamour (3-0, 1 KO), who overcame a trip to the canvas in the fourth round, kept his undefeated record intact with a close but unanimous six-round decision over Eddie “Thunder” Caminero (7-8, 7 KOs).
Iraq War veteran, cruiserweight Chris Traietti (11-3, 7 KOs), floored Tyler Seever (13-13-1, 11 KOs) twice in the fifth round, finishing him off in the sixth with two more knockdowns, before the fight was stopped by referee Paul Casey.
Chicago heavyweight Boban Simic (2-0, 2 KOs) dropped Boston’s pro-debuting Tyler King twice with powerful left hooks prior to referee Eddie Claudio halting the action with nine-seconds remaining in the second round.
New Haven bantamweight Josh Crespo (1-1-1, 1 KO) won his first professional fight when Lowell’s pro-debuting Mike Martin failed to answer the bell for the third round.
