Nakash Wins by Decision

Widely divergent scores propelled Ran Nakash to his 25th consecutive win in 25 professional fights. Nakash (25-0, 18 KOs) defeated Victor Barragan (11-6, 3 KOs) by unanimous decision with scores of 99-91, 97-93, and 96-94. Both exchanged thudding body punches throughout the contest. Nakash broke Barragan's nose in the middle of the fight and Barragan never really recovered. This win, taking place at The Arena in Philadelphia, could lead to the much anticipated match up with Bobby Gunn.

On the same card, Israeli lightweight Oz Goldenburg rose to 2-0 with a majority decision victory over Marcos Garcia (0-3). The judges' scores were 39-37 (twice), and 38-38. Though Garcia threw more punches, Goldenburg's did more damage.

  1. I was at the fight. Nakash looked great as always. He was in shape and was hardly breathing hard at the end, while Barragan bled from his nose.

    Good, hard fought 10 rounds for Nakash.

    Bring on Bobby Gunn!!!!
