"The Mack Truck" roles over another opponent on February 2tth at the First Annual Tommy Morrison 8-Man Tournament in the Grove Civic Center in Grove, Oklahoma. That makes three wins and no losses for Jimmy Roach who just made his pro boxing debut one month ago at the Tommy Morrison Memorial Fight Night. The match ended in just 19 seconds of the first round after his opponent Johnny Lockette of Forest City, Arkansas nearly takes a tumble through the bottom rope out onto the judges table. Jimmy looked lightning quick. Cody Coughran was in attendance and after the fight he said, "You could watch that fight ten times and never see the punch,".
The Middleweights put on a real show in first of two exhibition fights. South Omaha Boy (S.O.B.) was victorious after a hard fought battle with Terrence Hogan of Shawnee, Oklahoma. The win came by way of TKO in the third round.
Nick Jones of Okmulgee looked impressive as usually. Winning in the first match by way of Knockout in the second round. He caught a lose by decision after 3 rounds against Arkansas native Jamal Woods.
Brandon Spencer really pumped up the crowd with some killer dance moves. When asked what to call it he said, "Here comes the bear." After the tournament, Brandon gave a post fight interview saying, "I want to say thank you to everyone at American Boxing Association for giving me a fair chance to prove that I am a real fighter. Even tho I have an opponent record I am no opponent. I have a few goals that will be very hard too achieve but as stated in Phillipians 4-13 I can do all things thru Christ.
