|GOMEZ KNOCKS OUT GREAVES
On Saturday (07/08/2000), at the Widnes Kingsway Leisure Centre in
Michael Gomez (UK) defended his British and WBO/Intercontinental
featherweight titles succesfully, knocking out his challenger Carl
in the second round.
Gomez started out well, a bit more patient as we are used to see
He worked well, throwing some nice uppercuts. Near the end of the
round, Gomez threw a beautiful left hook, sending Greaves to the
where he failed to beat the referee's count, the fight ended at 3
and 9 seconds of the second round.
Gomez fought only two weeks ago, as he beat Carl Allen on the
Tyson-Savarese undercard in Glasgow, Scotland. Gomez improves his
21-3 with 13 KOs. He can now buy a new house, as he planned before
fight. He wants to step up to another level, maybe a fight for the
or Commonwealth title. He even called out Acelino Freitas, the WBO
Greaves drops to 20-5 with 2 KOs. He fought for the British title
having won the British Masters tournament.
In a good undercard fight, welterweight Paul Jennings (UK) used
skills to outpoint Paul Denton (UK); the referee scored the bout
favor of Jennings. Near the end of the third round, Jennings
stepped up the
pace, but held his hands down and his chin up and paid the price:
floored by a left hook from Denton. But Jennings came back well
Jennings, who improves his record to 7-0 with 1 knockout, still
has to work
on his defence. He is not a big puncher, his only KO came against
smith in the first round of his pro debut.
Denton, very experienced, falls to 7-15-2 with 6 knockouts.
Also on the card, middleweights Darren Rhodes (UK) and Jason
drew over four rounds, the referee's scoring card reading 39-39.
In a fight made at super featherweight, Tony Mulholland (UK)
Leroy Williamson (UK), 79-74.
Super welterweight Takaloo (UK) stopped Ernie Smith (UK) in the
round. This fight was actually scheduled for the Tyson-Savarese
