Thomas Awimbono beaten in US



In a walkout bout on Saturday night at the Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama, Caleb Plant (15-0, 10 KO) defeated Ghana’s Thomas Awimbono (25-7-1, 21 KO) in a super middleweight contest.

Both fighters exchanged punches in the first round with neither landing anything solid, until a left hook from Plant knocked Awimbono down toward the end of the round but was able to beat the count.

Plant stayed on the offensive through round two, landing a few solid blows to the head and body.

In the third, Awimbono landed a solid left hook that reddened Plant’s face, but the response from Plant drove Awimbono into the corner.

The fourth round was a back-and-forth action, with Plant coming in strongly at the end and maintained control in the fifth.

Despite Awimbono’s willingness to engage in shots to the body, Plant also landed the cleaner punches in the sixth and seventh.

The rounds unfolded in similar fashion until the final bell after the tenth, handing Plant a unanimous decision win with scores of 100-89 (twice) and 99-90. –Fightnews
