:boxing: Boxing Bits ::11.17.08:: Taylor, Cintron, Bika Reach Towards the Top Once More

A number of former champions, contenders (in both senses), and current prospects met and either continued their way (back) to the top, or slunk their way down further...

Sakio Bika TKO3 Peter Manfredo, Jr. (Super Middleweight)
--Bika continues to gain more recognition since his credible stand against Joe Calzaghe, while Manfredo sinks further since then (if not since The Contender, despite a few wins in between)

Grady Brewer SD(10) Cornelius Bundrage (Light Middleweight)

Jaidon Codrington TKO8 William Gill (Super Middleweight)
--In the final round...

Jermain Taylor UD Jeff Lacy (Super Middleweight) [HBO]
--Taylor vyes to come back to championship form, Lacy continues to disappoint despite claiming some rounds...

Kermit Cintron UD Lovemore N'dou (Welterweight)
--Can Cintron become champion again and finally defeat constant momentum killer and conqueror Antonio Margarito once and for all? He'll need a better gameplan, defense, and stamina if he wants to (and some better luck).

David Haye TKO5 Monte Barrett (Heavyweight)
--I suppose the "price" hasn't been quite right for former contender (and one-time The Price is Right contestant) Barrett, in another knockout loss...

Chazz Witherspoon TKO8 Adam Richards (Heavyweight)
--Another last-round-KO in the eighth for another prospect...

Not Previously Mentioned
:Sat.11.15.08: Allen Green TKO7 Carl Daniels (Light Heavyweight)
--Hard to believe I actually missed listing this one...
:Sat.11.15.08: Alexander Dimitrenko KO3 Luon Krasniqi (Heavyweight)
:Sat.11.15.08: Michael Grant UD Paul Marinaccio (Heavyweight)
--Grant still trying to come back after numerous meltdowns in the ring in his hot younger days...
:Sat.11.15.08: Deontay Wilder TKO2 Ethan Cox (Heavyweight)
--The lone Beijing Olympic medalist from the U.S. team (bronze) notches his first professional win.
