Middleweight contender, “Comanche Boy” George Tahdooahnippah (31-1-2) main event title bout with Thomas Brown (15-4-2) ended in an 8 round split draw Friday, October 4th at the Comanche Nation Casino in Lawton, OK. In a scheduled ten round bout, action was rough, with head clashes throughout the fight, which prompted the ring side physician to call a halt to the fight in the 8th round. The judges’ scores for the bout were 77-75 Tahdooahnippah, 77-75 Brown, and 76-76 draw.
The bout therefore was declared a split draw, and left the IBA Continental America’s Middleweight Title unclaimed. Tahdooahnippah said afterward, “It was close, but I thought I did enough to secure the win. I pressured and stalked all night, and had Brown hurt multiple times in the fight. Not once in the fight was I ever in any trouble. I am very disappointed in the decision. I’ll see what my next move is from here with my team,” he continued. “I most definitely have to get back into the ring as soon as possible because I have unfinished business.”
