At the Dome at the Ballpark in Rosemont, Illinois on Friday night, Chicago’s Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez claimed the WBC Continental Americas super middleweight title with a highly controversial split decision over Cincinnati’s Aaron Pryor Jr. (19-11-2, 11 KOs). Jimenez, who improved to 21-1-1, 14 KOs, was down in round eight, but hung on to take the split verdict, 96-93, 95-94, with the the third judge seeing it for Pryor, 96-93.

Light heavyweight Derrick ‘Superman’ Findley won by KO over Donovan ‘Don da Bomb’ George. Referee Celestino Ruiz stopped the bout at 2:24 in round five of a scheduled eight.

270 lb. heavyweight Lorenzo Hood halted 248-pounder Jamal Woods at 2:48 of round number two. Jamal appeared to get hit with either a low blow or possibly a borderline punch. After a brief exam, referee Lou Hall started counting and near the count of eight stopped the contest and awarded the bout to Lorenzo Hood. A complaint from Woods to the referee and officials was to no avail.
