The main Heavyweight action was in Missouri where 3 bouts took place, 2 of which were for titles.
The main event saw the enigmatic Galen Brown (41-22-1-4, 24) recorded one of his biggest victories as he out boxed and out moved the once highly touted Richard Carmack (12-2-0-1, 10). Carmack, a genuine man mountain at over 300lbs, was made to look slow, cumbersome and generally a step behind Brown who claimed the USA Mid American Heavyweight title as a result of the decision.
With 2 losses in a row for "Silverback" Carmack it appears his career is genuinely on the rocks and it will take a lot of time and effort, to rebuild his career and get in to some sort of shape.
It wasn't all bad for the Carmack family with the 21 year old Brandon Carmack (3-0-2, 1) out pointing the limited Alex Rozman (2-2, 1) for the USA Missouri State Heavyweight title. Like Richard it's very unlikely Brandon will manage to make much of his career unless he hits the gym and hits it hard. Thankfully however it does seem like he's been doing that and did come in 40lbs lighter for this bout than his previous one.
In the other contest on the card Dakota Talbott (2-7) upset Ricky Thompson (3-6-1, 2) via a majority decision. This was the second meeting between the two men and the second time Thompson would come out with a victory.
In Pennsylvania David Williams (7-7-2, 2) took a 4 round decision over William Miranda (6-7-2). This was a rematch from when the two men fought to a draw last year and this time Williams made sure he did enough for the victory.
There was also a contest in Florida as novice Chaen Chess (3-1, 2) took a majority decision over Carlos Reyes (5-5-1, 3). It's fair to suggest that neither Chess or Reyes will be going far though bouts like this are what the sport needs and we certainly won't complain about matches like this that help to fill up undercards.
