The sole unbeaten man from the 8 in action was the hard hitting Charles Martin (8-0-1, 7) who took his first decision victory by clearly over-coming Joshua Clark (2-2-2, 2) in California. The scorecards were wide to say the least (60-52 twice and 59-53) showing the domination of Martin.
On the same card as the Martin/Clark fight, Jonathan Hamm (7-1, 5) hammered out an equally as impressive result as he defeated Andrae Carthron (6-10-2, 1). Like Martin, Hamm was a mile ahead on the cards which all read 60-52.
In Louisiana Terrance Marbra (7-3, 6) forced a retirement of the hard hitting but vulnerable Bobby O'Bannon (10-6, 10). This victory saw Marbra ending a 2 fight losing streak however it ended O'Bannon's losing stream to 3 straight.
In Pennsylvania John Lennox (12-2, 5) scored his second successive victory since being stopped by Rodricka Ray as he over overcame Joseph Rabotte (11-25-1, 3) over the 6 round distance. This was the 9th straight loss for Rabotte who is now with out a win in almost 2 years.
In the biggest shock of the night Richard Dawson (4-1, 2), the Heavyweight who was beaten by English cricketer Andrew Flintoff, overcame the much more experienced Ty Cobb (16-4, 9). Although Cobb is now 37 years old he was still expected to beat Dawson who looked very timid in his most high profile bout to date.
