Sechew Powell Makes his mark in 2006
As the 2006 boxing year begins to settle in, their has already been much to talk about. Personal triumphs with O'Neil Bell unifying the titles in the cruiserweight division, Manny Paquiao knocking out Eric Morales, and now Sechew Powell steps in the ring and up to plate as he places an x on the light middleweight division. With Winky Wright permanently fighting at 160, Powell can very well stake his claim in the division. At the age of 26, The Brooklyn native has been fighting pro for three years, and with his unblemished record of 18-0-11ko's, Powell is a force to be reckoned. The 5ft10in southpaw had a very busy fight season in 2005, staying in the eye of the public and fighting four times last year, with his most notable an exciting win over Cornelius Bundrage. Both fighters knocked each other down simultaneously in the opening round, both recovered and was up quickly but Powell took advantage of the opportunity and knocked Bundrage out in the same round.
In his four outings of 2005, Sechew Powell only went the distance with two, Patrick Thompson which went eight rounds and ten exciting rounds against Archak TerMeliksetian. Sechew Powell has the right attitude and approach to the craft and what he needs to do is continue his approach. I believe Sechew Powell has the goods to go all the way to the top, and if he continues his upward march, give or take a few stumbling blocks that may fall, he can very well find himself in a championship position by years end. That's just my opinion but watch for yourself as he faces Robert Frazier on Feb. 3, 2006 at the Northern Quest Casino in Airway Heights, WA on ShoBox The Next Generation at 11pm.
