The 43 year old southpaw Amir “Hardcore” Mansour, 22-1-1 (16), out of Pennsville, NJ, and trained out of Philadelphia seemed to pull out the win over the much taller 33 year old former football player Gerald “El Gallo Negro” Washington, 16-0-1 (11), of Vallejo, CA, over ten rounds. Washington used his longer reach and occasional right hand to keep the southpaw Mansour at bay over the first four rounds. In the fifth round fatigue started to set in for Washington as Mansour finally was able to get inside and do some body work slowing down the retreating Washington.

That was the way it was for the remainder of the fight with Mansour taking it to Washington whose left was now by his side and holding on as Mansour would get inside and land some overhand lefts. In the ninth round Mansour landed a double left hook to the body of the fading Washington.

Moses Robinson has been the long time trainer of Mansour with Danny Davis doing the cut work and James Gibbs assistant trainer. Mansour had a cut on his left ear that was no factor. NV judge Adalaide Byrd somehow came up with a 97-93 for Washington to the boo’s of the crowd. Steve Morrow had it 96-94 Mansour as did DHB. Pat Russell scored it 95-95 for a draw. The fans were not happy with this feeling Mansour pulled it out after the fourth round. “I thought I won the fight,” said Washington. Mansour on the other hand felt it would not have been a fight if he didn’t make it one. “I am a fan’s fighter and that’s what I did tonight chasing him around the ring,” said Mansour. Mansour had “judges be fair” on the back of his trunks. He must have known ahead of time he needed a knockout to win. He blamed it on Washington being an Al Haymon fighter.

For Washington it was only his second 10 rounder having gone eight rounds three times including his last fight back in March. He is one of several tall prospects trying to get to the top seemingly with as little opposition as possible who ran into a roadblock tonight in Mansour.

This main event was part of Fox 1’s Tuesday Night Fights and being held at Little Creek Casino Resort in the state of Washington.
