Undefeated suoer welterweight Antonio Tarver Jr. (11-0, 7 KOs) scored an impressive KO over previously unbeaten Drew “Tomahawk” Dwelly (11-1-2, 11 KOs) on Saturday night in front of a sellout crowd at Calta’s Fitness & Boxing in Tampa, Florida. Southpaw Tarver connected with a series of straight left that dropped Dwelly to a knee. He quickly rose only to immediately collapse for the full count. Tarver claimed the NABF title.

  • No way! They managed to sell out Caltas Fitness and Boxing? Were there enough folding chairs?…I didn’t know Antonio Tarver even had a son that was boxing and that’s a good thing. He’s trying to make his own name (although it’s the same) and not riding on his father’s. All titles are watered down now, but back in the day, the NABF belt was very legit. It was a big stepping stone to a world title. I will now keep en eye on Tarver Jr.

    • Don’t remember the NABF belts ever being too important. Big reason for all the copycat belts of today.

  • Okay, I just looked Tarver Jr up. He’s 34, not exactly a hot young prospect. That doesn’t neccesarily eliminate him from future success in the sport, but he’s been a pro for 8 years, only has 11 fights, and hasn’t fought anyone approaching contender status. I still wish him luck, but I wouldn’t get too exited about him.
