"Fire" Burns Brightly in Times Square
by Bernie McCoy
April 1, 2010
 

     
   
   
   
   

(APR 1)  Keisher "Fire" McLeod-Wells used her superior reach, faster hands and quicker ring movement to win a unanimous four round decision over Laura Gomez on Lou DiBella's six bout program in the intimate setting of B B Kings Blues Club in Times Square in New York City  on Wednesday, March 31.

McLeod-Wells came to the ring at 112 pounds, three pounds lighter than her, unbeaten southpaw, opponent from Mexico.

All three judges concurred on a 40-36 verdict for the Brooklyn fighter who kept Gomez on the end of her left jab for much of the fight. The shorter Gomez, who gave up several inches to her 5' 8" opponent, tried, to her credit, to be the aggressor throughout the bout, but was unable to keep pace with the quicker MeLeod-Wells or manage to trap the winner on the ropes or in a corner, when Gomez did manage to close the distance. Gomez was warned twice during the bout for holding and hitting.

The second round was the Mexican fighter's best and most effectively aggressive round and a more sympathetic judging pool might had given Gomez the nod for that round. However, as the round was coming to a close, Gomez, inexplicably, mistook the ten-second signal for the bell and turned wearily to her corner, possibly indicating some fatigue setting in. In a show of sportsmanship, McLeod-Wells did not throw any punches at Gomez who, back turned, was essentially defenseless.

Gomez's aggressiveness waned slightly in the third round and noticeably in the final stanza, while MeLeod-Wells, clearly in top condition, closed the bout much stronger, particularly in the last round which was her strongest of the fight. The winner moved her record to 3-1, while Gomez drops to an identical record after three decision wins in Mexico.
