Fight Night Results at The Inn in Greensboro, North Carolina, Saturday Feb. 2, 2013

Paco Rivera, GAR1680 Boxing Talk
This past weekend, the boxing promotions company Walter Johnson & Cesar Promotions featured an event of seven professional bouts that took place at The Inn at Greensboro Airport in Greensboro, North Carolina. The venue had a crowd of several hundred fans in attendance taking up nearly every seat for an affair promoted as Double Impact, Ballroom Brawl 4. The event was highlighted by two undefeated North Carolina boxers extending their unbeaten streaks with unanimous decision wins. A total of six fighters from around North Carolina participated in the event, including one bout that clashed two of them.

Noel “Shut-up” Echevarria, the Puerto Rican southpaw lightweight now fighting out of Winston-Salem went six rounds with Soumana Nandou Abdoulaye, originally from the country of Niger in Africa, but now making his home in Brooklyn, New York. The bout was scored 60-54, 59-55, and 59-55, all in Echevarria’s favor. Noel Echevarria wrote in his Facebook that the fight would not have gone the distance had he not suffered injuries to his hands. “It wouldn't have lasted that long if it wasn't for both of my hands getting injured. Hurt both of my hands in the fight. Didn't notice my right hand injury until afterwards though,” Echevarria wrote. The Winston-Salem lightweight increased his record to 8-0, as the winless Abdoulaye fell to 0-6.

In the main event, heavyweight Joshua “Too Tuff” Tufte faced Jon Bolden of Brooklyn, New York. Bolden, who often resorted to excessive holding throughout the fight, was deducted a point by the referee in the 4th round for rabbit punching. When it was over, Tufte led on all three judge’s scorecards of the six-round bout with scores of 59-54, 58-55, and 57-55. Tufte improved his perfect record to 11-0, while Bolden fell to 6-6. Josh Tufte is next scheduled for a 10-round bout on Saturday, February 16 in Winston-Salem’s Benton Convention Center when he faces what should be his toughest challenge to date by taking on David Saulsberry (7-5) of Kentucky.

In other fights in Greensboro Saturday night, the cruiserweight bout between Joel Shojgreen of New York and D'Quan Morgan of Hamlet, North Carolina was stopped at 2:19 of the first round when an accidental head-butt opened a gash on the eye of Joel Shojgreen. The fight was ruled a no-contest.

Jovan Francois (5-0) of Trinidad and Tobago maintained his unbeaten record with a TKO victory over Teron Walker (0-2) of Virginia. The TKO occurred at 2:05 of the 1st round.

In a bout of two North Carolina fighters, Welterweight Christian Dominguez of Winston-Salem won a 4-round unanimous decision by defeating Alvin Baker of Lumberton. Dominguez improved to 4-1. Baker is now 1-3.

In his professional boxing debut, Pablo Velez (0-0-1) of New Brunswick, North Carolina fought to a majority decision 4-round draw with Lekan Byfield (2-3-2) of Yonkers, New York. One judge had it 39-37 for Velez while the other two judges scored it 38-38 even.

In the first fight of the evening, light-welterweight Bobby Hornsby of Georgia also remained undefeated with a record of 5-0 after defeating Thomas Horne of South Carolina. Horne fell to 0-2.
