CHICAGO, IL, December 16, 2011 — In the final card of the year, 8 Count Productions continued its tradition of introducing promising fighters to Chicago fight fans, featuring a number of prospects and the pro debut of 2011 Chicago Golden Gloves Champion Paul Littleton. The event was packed with explosive action, with the young boxers seeming to vie for who could achieve the quickest knockout. Andrzej Fonfara gave his fans what they were shouting for, and middleweights Viktor Polyakov and Foster Nkodo showed the grit that brought them to a showdown of undefeated prospects.
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…)
