Pham defeats Webster

By Kurt Wolfheimer at ringside

Gabriel “GPham” Pham (12-2, 5 KOs) won a cross roads battle of New Jersey super middleweights as he dropped Derrick “Take it to the Bank” Webster (28-3, 14 KOs) twice on his way to a solid eight round unanimous decision victory at Bally’s Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey before a near sellout crowd on Saturday night.

Pham of Pleasantville, New Jersey dropped the heavily favored Webster in the opening round with a straight left. The shot seemed to give Pham more confidence, while Webster settled for a few jabs and boxing from distance. The bout really changed late in the third round as a wide Pham left hand on the button put Webster down to the canvas for the second time. This time Webster rose to his feet, but he was badly hurt. The bell sounded before any more damage could be done. From that point on, Webster could only mount a few flurries and Pham would counter with a few heavy shots to end the rallies by the Glassboro native. All three judges scored it solidly in favor of Gabriel Pham by scores of 77-73 and 78-72 x 2 for the well-deserved eight round unanimous decision victory. Continue reading “Pham defeats Webster”
