Zahir Raheem TKO’s Coleman
in the Second Round!
After easily taking the first round, Raheem came out in the second round and dominated. Quickly after the bell sounded to start the second round, Raheem landed a shot to the gut that dropped Coleman to his knees. After standing up, Raheem then followed to knock Coleman down twice more with right hooks to the body. The finishing move occurred when Coleman stood up for the third time in which he was greeted with a flush left hook to the chin, dropping him in the corner and forcing the referee to stop the contest 2:04 into the round.
Zahir Raheem will look to make his next appearance on the upcoming Battle at the Boat card, tentatively scheduled for January 11th 2014. After easily defeating Santos Pakau, Justin Juuko, and Tim Coleman in 2013, Raheem can anticipate bigger fights headed his way throughout 2014.
On the undercard portion of the show, one of the region’s premier prospects, Jeremy McCleary, impressed the local fight crowd with a victory over Manuel Ortega in his pro debut, showing great poise throughout the four round bout, McCleary was able to land his shots efficiently while avoiding most of the punches thrown by Ortega. The contest would go to a decision where one judge ruled the fight 40-36 while the other two scored the fight 39-37 all in favor of McCleary.
The other undercard action was full of fast paced and entertaining action from talent all over the Northwest. Results can be seen below:
Jason Novelli def. Luis Iniguez UD (39-37)(39-37)(39-37)
Jared Teer def. Dex Montenegro UD (40-36)(40-36)(40-36)
