HOLLYWOOD, FL, December 6 – Junior middleweight contenders Sechew Powell and Terrance Cauthen promised a war in their IBF title elimination bout on Wednesday night at the Seminole Hard Rock Live Arena, and both fighters delivered on their promise.

“I give Terrance Cauthen a lot of credit for being a man of his word and standing and fighting with me,” said Powell. “But I was not about to be denied of my title shot, and no one was going to stop me last night.”
With the victory, the 28-year old Powell improved to 22-1 with 13 KOs, and he now has his sights set on his 2008 shot at IBF junior middleweight champion Cory Spinks.
“Winning this fight over Terrance Cauthen was a great Christmas gift, and I’m going to celebrate 2008 by taking home my first world title,” said Powell. “Cory Spinks is a great fighter and I respect him a lot, but this is my time and all that respect will go out the window when the bell rings. I can’t wait to fight him.”
