Hammerstein Ballroom, New York - In a light heavyweight matchup, Khainell Wheeler handed Frederic Julan his first pro loss via six-round unanimous decision.

Scores were 59-55, 59-55, 58-56 for Wheeler, now 6-1 with 5 KOs. Julan falls to 12-1 with 10 KOs.

The lanky Wheeler looked sharp in the opening round as he used his height and reach advantage well while keeping Julan at bay with solid 1-2s. At close range, Julan did his best work, and he was able to force Wheeler into the pocket more often in the second and third stanzas.

Wheeler regained control in the fourth as Julan showed little sense of urgency in his attack, and this pattern continued until Julan went on the offensive late in the fifth. Julan pressed the action on a tired Wheeler in the final round, but it was too little too late for the Frenchman.

Former NFL linebacker Mike Balogun scored the biggest win of his career, stopping the son of Tommy Morrison, Trey Lippe-Morrison in a single round.

Balogun rattled Lippe-Morrison briefly in the opening minute, and just before two minutes were gone, a straight left put him on the deck. Balogun went for the kill, and as Morrison tried to fight back, he got drilled several more times, with one shot snapping his head back in a fashion similar to the end of his  father’s loss to Ray Mercer. Lippe-Morrison stayed upright, but his legs were gone, and as he staggered, referee Eddie Claudio had seen enough, stopping the bout at the 2:41 mark of round one.

The 38-year-old Balogun moves to 18-0 with 13 KOs. Lippe-Morrison falls to 18-1 with 17 KOs.

In the Trillerverz 4 opener at Hammerstein Ballroom, Jersey City’s Joe Jones halted Junior Wright in the second round of a scheduled six.

Both fought at a measured pace for much of the first round, but at the 10-second buzzer, Jones dropped Wright with a picture perfect right hand. Wright rose but the bell stopped Jones from following up. As soon as the second began, though, Jones got back at it and after hurting Wright with a left hook, another right produced a second knockdown. This time, referee David Fields didn’t even count, waving the bout off 13 seconds into round two.

Jones moves to 13-4 with 10 KOs. Wright falls to 18-4-1 with 15 KOs.
