Milch is 9-0

Light middleweight Tony Milch won his ninth straight fight to open his career. The 34 year old defeated Kevin McCauley on points at the Camden Centre in London, England on December 4.

Milch weighed 156 pounds for the fight while McCauley was a pound and half heavier. McCauley is a 36 year old who has participated in over hundred more fights than Milch, but his 11-110-7 record puts him somewhere behind the late great Bob Foster on the all time pound for pound list. McCauley last won 67 fights ago. Despite all of those losses, he has only been stopped ten times.

Milch went six rounds for the second time in his career. Referee Lee Cook scored the bout 58-56, deducting a point from Milch in the fourth for rabbit punching.
