This past Friday evening, Feb. 16, WBC junior lightweight champion O’Shaquie “Ice Water” Foster successfully defended his title with a split decision over Abraham “El Super” Nova.
The bout took place inside of The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York, and was aired on ESPN.
The action was tactical early on, with both men having their moments. Foster (22-2, 12 KO’s) appeared to take control by rounds six and seven, landing powerful shots on Nova (23-2, 16 KO’s) as the rounds went by.
One of boxing’s brightest prospects delivered another dominating performance on Thursday night.
19-year old Abdullah Mason scored two knockdowns and knocked out Benjamin Gurment in the second round of their scheduled eight-round bout on the Teofimo Lopez-Jamaine Ortiz undercard at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino’s Michelob ULTRA Arena.
The Cleveland native once again showed off his arsenal of offensive skills during the brief bout, and improved to 12-0 with 10 knockouts.
