Cestus Management's super middleweight destroyer Don "Da'Bomb" George made the leap from boxing prospect to being on the verge of becoming a world-class contender with a four round savage annihilation of Canadian Jason Naugler; handing this tough and very experienced fighter his first loss byway of stoppage.
Coming into the contest, Naugler previously had twenty-nine fights and has gone the distance in very creditable performances against Chad Dawson, Jean Paul Mendy,Anthony Thompson, Jesse Brinkley, Samuel Miller and Nicholas Poulard. The fight was the main event of a card promoted by Leon Margules and Dominic Pesoli at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago , Illinois.
George (18-0-1 w/16kos) showed impressive boxing skills and a snappy jab as he constantly peppered the experienced Naugler face and body. Naugler, attempting to overcome speed, power, and youth with experience, came out fast at the openinig bell and to everybody's surprise tried to box by jabing and moving and throwing fast combinations.
Nauglers attempt to box George was to no avail, as George was out jabbing and countering all of Naugler's punches with fast and powerful combination's to both the head and body.
Naugler tasted the canvas in the second round with a pulverizing short fast right hand to the head that stiffened Naugler and then turned his legs to jelly where he fell heavily to the canvas face first. To his credit Naugler got up and barely made it through the round being saved by the bell, the crowd in attendance roared as they could feel that their hometown boy was well on his way to a fantastic finish.
The third round saw George show a lot of maturity by sticking to his game plan by countering Naugler, using a very hard left jab and fast crisp shots that where stopping Naugler in his tracks and sistematically breaking him down and busting him up.
In the fourth round, George upped his aggression and continued to punish Naugler; ripping power shots to the body and head. Naugler was brave but outgunned as George was merciless in his attack. The end came in brutal fashion as George landed hellacious shots and was savagely battering the Canadian which caused referee Gino Rodriguez to call a halt to the massacre.
Cestus Mangement CEO Gina Iacovou, said, "I am very happy as this is really a great win for Donovan. Naugler is known to be a tough a durable guy. Just look at his record as he has gone the distance with current world champions and world rated contenders."
Cestus Advisor, Mike Michael, said, "What a win and what a performance by Donovan! This is the kind of statement that he (George) needed to make against such an experienced and durable fighter like Naugler" Michael added, 2010 is going to be a phenomenal year for Donovan.
