Baltimore heavyweight Hasim Rahman Jr., 4-0, 3 KOs, the son of the former heavyweight champ, won an unpopular 4-round majority decision over Texan Ronny Hale, 3-11, 3 KOs. The scores were 38-38, 39-37, and 40-36.
In the opening bout at the 2300 Arena in South Philly, junior middleweight Michael Crain, Smyrna, DE, 1-1, spoiled the pro debut of Philadelphian Dillon Kasprzak, 0-1, by taking their entertaining 4-round fight by split decision. Kasprzak rallied in the final round to score a knockdown, but it wasn’t enough to sway two of the three judges. The official scores were 38-37, 38-37 and 37-38.
