Rah Narh Decisions Freddie Norwood Over Ten Rounds

By Mark Vester

At the Jostens Center in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, a battle held at a catch-weight max of 145-pounds, saw Ray Narh (25-1, 21KOs) win a ten round unanimous decision over former champion Freddie Norwood (43-4, 23KOs). The scores were 99-89, 100-88 and 100-88.

Narh was too big, 5'10 to 5'6, and too long for the 41-year-old veteran. Norwood did well in the first round but everything went downhill from there. Norwood lost two points in the ninth round for a punch to the back of the head. Narh's KO steak of seven was broken. Norwood is now 2-2 in his last four fights.

The only thing norwood could do was to clinch. Nahr kept him at bay with his long reach.

Either norwood was too frustrated or had flashbacks from when he was locked up. He almost looked like he wanted to pick him up in the small clinch earlier in the fight then he winded up to him clearly hit…
