Byarm Batters Thorpe; Sigmon Outpunches Kennedy on Baltimore Pro Boxing Card


Heavyweight prospect Maurice “Freight Train” Byarm remained unbeaten and impressed a capacity crowd at the Pikesville Armory with a fifth round stoppage of previously undefeated Winston Thorpe on Saturday evening.

Baltimore, MD, December 16, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Heavyweight prospect Maurice “Freight Train” Byarm remained unbeaten and impressed a capacity crowd at the Pikesville Armory with a fifth round stoppage of previously undefeated Winston Thorpe on Saturday evening.

Headlining Baltimore Pro Boxing’s “Seasons Beatings”, Byarm dominated from opening bell, connecting with a number of powerful shots that he put every one of his 247 pounds into. Thorpe was extremely game and never went down despite being rocked on multiple occasions, but Byarm’s offensive arsenal was simply too much for him. After being knocked around the ring, Referee John Gradowski had no choice but to save the fading Thorpe from taking any further punishment at 2:51 of the fifth.

Byarm, of Washington, DC by way of Philadelphia, PA, is now 10-0 with 7 Knockouts. Thorpe returns to South Carolina at 3-1-1.

In the evening’s co-feature, wildly popular super middleweight Scott “Cujo” Sigmon captured the East Coast title by decisioning grizzled Baltimorean Julius Kennedy in a thrilling ten round bout.

The fight was action packed throughout and both men had their spurts of success, with Kennedy connecting in close quarters while Sigmon landed a number of hard shots from the outside.

The fight was action packed throughout and both men had their spurts of success, with Kennedy connecting in close quarters while Sigmon landed a number of hard shots from the outside. Kennedy, who fought the final few rounds with his right eye swollen shut, rallied late in one of Maryland’s best bouts of 2010 but was also docked two points for repeated low blows. Both fighters were met with a round of applause at the final bell.

Scores were 96-92 twice and 95-93.

Bedford, VA’s Sigmon ups his record to 13-2 with 5 wins by kayo. Kennedy, who previously battled to a thrilling draw with rival Jesse Nicklow, drops to 7-2-1 with 3 knockouts while once again displaying the heart of a lion.
