Abell Knocks Out Mouthy Maurice Wheeler

Oops, musta let his hands down...

Joey Abell scored what must have been a most satisfying knockout of Maurice Wheeler in the second round of their heavyweight bout on Friday night in Philadelphia.

On Thursday night the weigh-in and press conference got nasty when Wheeler teased and mocked Abell, then presented him a gift box full of feminine hygiene products.  Abell refused to be drawn into Wheeler’s lowbrow antics, saying that he would answer in the ring.

And so it happened.  Abell started slow and there was little action in the first, but Abell got started and then finished matters with a violent knockout in the second.  “Minnesota Ice” had put Wheeler through the ropes, and that was his final word.

With tonight’s result Abell improves his record to 20-1 with 19 kayos, and Wheeler falls to 10-12 with 1 kayo.
