- On December 3, 2010 live on Showtime – West Philly’s Eric “Outlaw” Hunter (15-2, 8ko’s) lost by disqualification against former Cuban Olympian Luis Franco (8-0, 5ko’s) – the official time of stoppage was 2:34 in round 8 because of repeated low blows. It was a tough spot for Hunter who took the fight on less than two-weeks notice, traveling to fight on Franco’s promoters card on the opposite side of the country.
While the loss may be a very tough pill for Hunter to swallow at the moment, it gives him an opportunity to learn and grow. Even the all-times greats have taken losses at one point or another. It is all about how you bounce back from adversity. If Hunter is to be the true champion that many feel that he can be, he will learn from this experience and bounce back stronger. Stay tuned…
On the under card, local Jr. Middleweight Julian Williams improved to 4-0 with a 6 round unanimous decision win over Mario Evangelista.
