Bengal Bouts: Quarterfinals, 155 pounds

Tim Singler, Andrew Owens, Matt Robison, Kaitlyn Murphy, Megan Finneran, Molly Sammon and Chris Alle | Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Ryan “Dayman” Slaney def. Chris “The Situation” Losco

The senior Slaney controlled the freshman Losco in every round. After an even start, Slaney landed two solid rights and a quick left to knock Losco down. At the start of the second round, Slaney came out as the aggressor and put Losco immediately on the defensive. In the third round, Slaney went for the knockout shot, but Losco would not go down and stood strong. Slaney won in a unanimous decision.

Adam “Mad” Cowden “Disease” def. John “The Caucasian Asian” Crabtree

The junior Cowden, with a decided height and reach advantage, employed a steady dose of jabs to Crabtree’s head. The sophomore stayed low to avoid those jabs and consistently reached with swooping hooks with both hands. After two close rounds, Cowden began to assert himself in the third and stayed on top for the rest of the round. He won by unanimous decision.

Kyle “No Name Just Game” Kober def. Dominic “Chef Boyardee” Cimino

Both boxers’ long limbs prevented much contact in the early rounds, as neither boxer was able to land many punches.

The freshman Kober’s efforts in the third round distinguished him as the winner, as the referee stopped the match for Cimino’s bloodied nose.
