Doughlin, Quarles, Lamanna Win: Williams-Lara Card

By Lem Satterfield

ATLANTIC CITY, BOARDWALK HALL -- In the night's first bout, Denis Douglin of Marlboro, N.J. fought mostly in retreat on the way to escaping with a six-round unanimous decision over Philadelphia's Philip McCants.

Nicknamed "Mama's Boy" -because he is trained by his mother, Saphya, Douglin won by scores of 60-54 twice, and, 58-56 once.

In rebounding from February's third-round knockout loss to Doel Carrasquillo (15-18-1, 13 KOs), Douglin, of Marlboro, N.J. rose to 13-1, with eight knockouts while McCants slipped to 9-3-1, with three stoppages.

The night's second fight featured Atlantic City junior middleweight Thomas Lamanna dropping Reggie Jenkins with a right hand, and later forcing referee Randy Neuman to step in and wave an end to the bout at 2 minutes, 14 seconds of the first round.

Lamanna is 4-0 with three knockouts, and Jenkins lost his professional debut.

Alexandria, Va., middleweight Brandon Quarles won the third bout of the evening by four-round split-decision over Corey Preston (1-6) of Cincinnati, Oh., to improve to 6-0, with two knockouts.

Quarles won, 40-36, and, 39-37 on two cards, with Preston being up, 39-37, on the third.

The fourth fight was a crowd-pleasing, evenly contested slugfest before unbeaten heavyweight John Lennox of Carteret, N.J., emerged victorious by stopping Donnie Crawford (1-2-1, one KO) of Petersburg, WVa., at 2 minutes, 11 seconds of the fourth and final round.

Lennox rose to 5-0 with his second knockout, forcing referee Randy Newman to step in and protect Crawford after he had absorbed around 17 unanswered blows, including several uppercuts.

Lennox scored the lone knockdown of the bout, that being the result of a looping right hand in the second round. But Crawford rose and, by round's end, was pounding away at Lennox along the ropes.
