Deontay Wilder vs. Johann Duhaupas Early Results

By Jake Donovan


Unbeaten featherweight prospect Derrick Murray didn't live up to his "Whoop Dat Ass" nickname but managed to preserve his unbeaten record with a six-round shutout over hapless Micah Branch. Scores were 60-54 (three times) for St. Louis' Murray (11-0-1, 5KOs).

Bryant Perrella (11-0, 10KOs) scored his eighth consecutive knockout, the latest coming in a 5th round stoppage of Patrick Boozer. An accumulation of punches forced Boozer to the canvas for the first time in his career. Boozer took the count but was out on his feet, yet allowed to continue until referee Jim Korb finally jumped in following a subsequent flurry. Official time 2:28 of round five.

Kenneth McNeil (9-1, 6KOs) picked up his 6th straight win with a 3rd round knockout of Taronze Washington. The local middleweight floored Washington with a left uppercut, forcing an eight count. Washington stopped back down to a knee, complaining he was hit behind the head. The referee wasn't buying it, calling a halt to the contest at 1:00 of round three.
