Nakash and Shmuel Win

Last night, Ran Nakash came away with a TKO in the 7th round against Richard Stewart at Scope Arena in Norfolk, Virginia. Nakash's body attack was the key to the fight. The bout ended when veteran referee Steve Smoger stepped in with 37 seconds left in the round. Nakash advanced his record to 23-0, garnering his 17th knockout. Stewart falls to 14-9-2 with 8 KOs.

On the same card, Elad Shmuel won his welterweight contest against Edward Anderson. Shmuel outpointed Anderson, sweeping the cards, 40-35. Anderson was knocked down in the second round of four. Shmuel is now 22-2 with 11 KOs. Anderson, who will turn 49 years old in a week, descends to 4-16 with 3 KOs.

Nakash is currently scheduled to fight next on April 29, 2010 at Nokia Hall in Tel Aviv, Israel. There has also been discussion about him battling former alphabet belt holder Bobby Gunn this summer.
