CHICAGO, December 12, 2014 — There were thrills in supporting bouts, but what promised to be a barnburner at the UIC Pavilion ended in a whimper.

Last night’s main event at the UIC Pavilion had scarcely began when a right hook from the undefeated Rau’shee Warren (12-0, 3 knockouts, 117.5 lbs.) deposited the onrushing Javier Gallo (21-10-1, 12 KO’s, 118 lbs.) into the ropes. Righting himself, Gallo resumed the chase. The combatants circled. Unfortunately, before the bout got untracked, about a minute later, their heads slammed together and, blinking, Gallo collapsed.

The first fight of the evening featured Oakland, Tennessee’s Curtis Lee Tate (252 lbs.,3-3, 3 KO’s) against Hannibal, Missouri’s Lance Edward Gauch (280 lbs., 3-4, 3KO’s) in a four-round heavyweight bout that promised not to go the distance, given the knockout records of the participants. The first round started slow, with Tate finding his range with a jab. When Gauch started countering with uppercuts, the fighters switched to some inside fighting. Tate seemed to have the sharper punches at the outset, but Gauch began looking for and finding targets, especially for his heavy right hand. Near the end of the round, Gauch’s punches began to take their toll, though Tate rallied at the end. (continue reading…)
