Philadelphian super middle warlord Gee Culmer claimed his fourteenth victory after an epic battle with the Indianapolis hard man Mustafah Johnson at The Legendary Blue Horizon in Philadelphia on Friday night.
However, the James Shuler Memorial Gym fighter didnʼt have everything all his own way this time. Johnson took the fight to Culmer round after round, but by the end of the battle royale, Gee emerged the popular victor, albeit by a very close decision, with one judge - Rose Vargus - scoring it a 57-57 draw whilst Richard Hopkins and Al Dorsey both saw it as a 58-56
Geeʼs co-trainer, former IBF Light Middleweight World Champion Robert Hines, said of the fight, "Gee was lucky to get the decision, we will get him back in the gym, work him harder, get him right, maybe move him up a class."
On hand to cheer on Gee to victory were a large contingent of his fellow James Shuler Memorial Gym fighters including current IBF Cruiserweight World Champion ʽUSSʼ Steve Cunningham, middleweights Jamaal Davis and Willie ʽThe Gladiatorʼ Gibbs, English featherweight Marianne ʽGunnerʼ Marston, heavyweights ʽFastʼ Eddie Chambers and Chazz ʽThe Gentlemanʼ Witherspoon.
