Well that was quick! Going into the fight no one was giving Nigeria’s Enobong Umohette a chance to beat Joey DaWeko in Joey’s backyard. The experts were correct, he didn’t last half a minute into the fight as a quick Dewejko left hook ended the bout :27 seconds after the opening bell sounded.
The victory marks “The Tank’s” 6th consecutive win and 4th consecutive 1st round knockout. The fight was held at thje 2300 Arena and promoted by Peltz Boxing, Joe Hand Promotions & BAM Boxing.
The end result sets up a local showdown between Joey D and Amir Mansour. I’m not sure why Enobong Umohette stood in between this fight in the first place – but now that is out of the way we can see an interesting bout between two fighters who feel that they belong in the next level. No more free rides – this one should be very competitive…. while it lasts!
This contest is expected to take place at the 2300 Arena in South Philly on May 8, 2015 live on ESPN Friday Night Fights.
