Darnell Wilson Upsets Juan Carlos Gomez Over Ten

By Alexey Sukachev

Hamburg, Germany - A big upset took place, as former cruiserweight king Juan Carlos Gomez (49-3, 37 KOs) was soundly beaten by a faded version of the once feared slugger Darnell Wilson (24-12-3, 20 KOs), who had previously lost six fights in a row. This time 37-year old Wilson looked out of shape, as he usually does, but put his punches together and showed some honorable desire to fight in his opponent's backyard. Oppositely, the Cuban stalwart looked too lazy and didn't deliver any quality punches to rock the American. Wilson, on the other hand, was rather consistent with his sudden left hooks and deserved to get the victory. The scores were 96-94 (twice) and 95-95 - for Darnell Wilson, who is likely going to landing another payday after this victory.

Wilson showed willingness if nothing else. I guess that made the difference with the judges. Gomez looked like he couldn't be bothered the whole fight.

I remember Wilson when he had that pretty good streak going on FNF. Glad to hear, I like the guy.

If it was by knock-out I could understand the Ding-a-ling man scoring an upset but decision damn now that was an unlikely outcome.

This is pretty shocking. Wilson was below journeyman status.
