In a eight-round super middleweight bout Demond "DBestAtIt" Nicholson lost by split decision to Steve Rolls in Verona, NY.
In the last few seconds of the first-round Rolls landed a left hook to the head of Nicholson to drop him to the canvas! Nicholson looked to bounce back in the later rounds, and even put Rolls on rubbery legs at times.
After being hit with some hard shots from Nicholson, Rolls started to grab and make Nicholson smother his puches. Nicholson wasn't able to land the shots he needed to convince the judges that he was taking charge of the contest. The judges score the bout 77-75 for Nicholson and 77-74 twice for Rolls.
Nicholson falls to (17-2-1, 16 KO's) while Steve Rolls remains perfect at (16-0, 9 KO's).
