McNeeley wins 6-round decision
By Stephen Tobey
FOXBORO — Medfield's heavyweight Peter McNeeley remained undefeated with a six-round unanimous decision over Dwayne Hall of Buffalo, NY, Saturday night at Foxboro Park.
McNeeley (22-0, 17 knockouts) had the 215-pound Hall down in the second round but Hall was able to get up and hold on for the rest of the fight.
"It was a great learning experience," said McNeeley, who was recovering from the flu, which had forced him to step out of an October date in Boston. "My defense looked good and when he did land, I was told I took the punches better."
Hall, who entered the ring at 7-3, is a journeyman fighter whose record includes a loss to Jorge Luis Gonzalez, who posted a 10th round TKO over Renaldo Snipes on Saturday night in Las Vegas. Hall also has an upcoming fight scheduled against heavyweight contender Bert Cooper.
This weekend, McNeeley will leave for Minneapolis for a fight next week and on Nov. 23 he will fight in Sarasota, FL. His next local appearance is likely to be at the Whitman Armory in January or February.
Saturday night's bout was the headliner on a card that preceded a closed circuit showing of the Evander Holyfield-Riddick Bowe world heavyweight championship fight.
