Middleweight Matt Korobov of St. Petersburg, FL won a 10-round majority decision over “The Chosen One” Immanuwel Aleem of Richmond, VA.

However, Aleem fought back and turned the tide in the last three rounds as he caught the Russian native with strong punches of his own. One judge had a draw, 95-95 but the two other judges scored the contest, 96-95 and 97-93 for Korobov, who is now 29-2, 14 KO’s. Aleem falls to 18-2-1, 11 KO’s.
