MIAMI, Okla. (Nov. 4, 2005) – In a highly-anticipated match up of former Golden Gloves champions, Oklahoma native Allan Green knocked out Jaidon Codrington shortly after the opening bell, on “ShoBox: The New Generation.”

The fight was waved off 18 seconds into the first round as Codrington, unconscious, fell through the ropes. Codrington remained out on the canvas for roughly three minutes before regaining consciousness. Codrington was taken to Integris Baptist Regional Health Center in Miami where initial reports indicated that he had suffered a fractured sixth vertebrae. Doctors have since retracted that diagnosis, according to promoter Lou Dibella, and Codrington was released after neurological tests and CAT scans of the vertebrae came back negative. A full recovery is expected.

In the night’s main event, Sechew Powell continued his progress as a light middleweight prospect, taking a unanimous decision, scored 100-90 and 97-93 twice, against hard-hitting Archak Ter-Meliksetian.

SHOWTIME televised the DiBella Entertainment doubleheader from the Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Okla., at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
