Demond “D’BestAtIt” Nicholson scored a fourth round TKO over rugged Taneal Goyco on Saturday night at Patapsco Arena in Baltimore, Maryland. With the win, Nicholson moves his record to 9-0, with all 9 victories coming by stoppage.
The victory, in a sense, could be viewed as revenge victory for Nicholson. Goyco (out of Philadelphia) pulled of a big upset at the same venue by stopping Nicolson’s friend Jeremy Trussell by KO back in April. Nicholson mentioned this fight in an interview with TheFightJournal.com that can be seen here http://thefightjournal.com/2014/08/22/exclusive-interview-with-demond-dbestatit-nicholson
Nicolson dropped and hurt Goyco with a right hand and Goyco attempted to get up, but failed. He tried to rise a second time and made it to his feet before the bell rang to end the round. The doctor took a look at Goyco and determined that Goyco was in no shape to continue. Goyco’s record drops to 6-8-1 (3 KOs).
Nicholson, at age 21 is being moved perfectly at this stage in his career. He’s scheduled to fight again on September 20 in Washington, DC at the Convention Center. He’s also on tap to appear on October 30 at the new Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore. Ladies and gentlemen, he’s one to watch.
The very likeable Travis Reeves won his third straight fight with a unanimous decison over Brian Donahue. Reeves had a comfortable lead on the cards, but couldn’t finish Donahue (also out of Philadelphia as was Goyco). Appropriately nicknamed “Wildman”, Donahue absorbed an abundance of punishment and motioned for more as Reeves graciously obliged. At the final bell, all three judges scored it 60-54 for Reeves. With the win, Reeves improves to 6-2-1 (2 KOs). Donahue’s record drops to 3-10-2.
