HINCKLEY, MINNESOTA RESULTS: TAGGART JR., TRUAX, JAMES SCORE WINS


PhilBoxing.com



Minnesota, U.S.A - Fil-Am prospect Tim Owen Taggart Jr. beat Charles Meier in a bloody action packed bout held at the Grand Casino Hinckley, Minnesota. Taggart had to go through the proverbial eye of the needle in his unanimous decision win. Both boxers traded hard punches form start to finish and their bout was chosen as the best fight of the night. Taggart opened the festivities with a right straight and left hook into Meier’s midsection, who responded with his own left hook to the body.

The action heated up in the subsequent rounds as Meier countered Taggart’s body blows with a hard uppercut which made Taggart take a back step.


Taggart - whose mother Lenie Diez-Taggart is from Sumirap, Tangub City, Misamis Occidental, Southern Philippines – was more careful in his subsequent salvos and caused a cut on the left eyelid of Meier. Furious exchange of blows continued much to the delight of the fans.

"A hard fight that's for sure, it’s a crowd favorite I should say, In 3rd round he caught me with body shot two times but his punches don't affect me. There's an opening but like I said this is (Meier) is a tough kid" said Taggart,Jr who was interviewed by this writer after the bout.

There were no knockdowns and the 22 year old native of Hinckley City boosts his record to 5W-2L-2D, 2KO’s. The St. Paul City based Charles Meier drops to 4W-2-1D, 2KO’s.

"Charles (Meier) is tough opponent and good fighter but I think Tim (Jr.) was stronger of the two. At least one or two times I think he wobbled him but Charles is tough, a tough fighter" said Minnesota boxing judge Tim Taggart Sr.,

The winning boxer’s father was interviewed by this writer for Cebu radio station dyRF Radio Fuerza, Sunstar Superbalita and SportsManila.net at ringside.

"It was a good clean fight and it was a close fight for Tim (Taggart) against Charles (Meier)" said intl. referee Mark Nelson, son of veteran boxing judge Denny Nelson.

In the main event Osseo based Caleb "Golden" Truax (11-0-1, 10KO) remained unbeaten and beat Minneapolis City’s Phil "The Drill" Williams (11-4-1, 10KO) by majority decision (97-94, 96-94, 95-95).This was their second meeting. They fought to draw last April 23, 2010 in St. Paul Armory, Minnesota. The boxers took a while to warm up but it was Truax’s body shots that spelled the difference.


The fight card billed as "Saturday Fight Nights" was promoted by the Midwest Sports Council of Justin Seurer and Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe last Feburary 26.

For the other supporting bouts, undefeated African-American Ismail "Sharp Shooter" Muwendo (8-0, 6KO) beat Seattle, Washington based Rob Diezel (5-3, 2KO) by unanimous decision.

Jamal James (4-0, 4KO) stopped Justin Danforth (6-18, 1KO) in the second round. Referee Celestino Ruiz stopped the contest as Danforth was unable to get up after a right straight landed on his head at 2:40 of the 2nd.

Tony Lee won over Alexander Tousignant (TKO3 2:21), Serhiy Karpenko of Big Bear, California knocked down Zak Jensen three times with overhand lefts and left-right combos (TKO1 1:31).

P.S. This writer would like to thanks my fellow scribe Jesse Kelley of minnesotaboxing.com , Donald Graves and Shena Seurer.
