Sakima Mullings Wins Wray and Nephew Contender 2017

Mullings won by way of a Knock Out in Round Six of the contest.

At yesterday’s weigh-in Mullings, who came in at 154 in his semi-final bout and looked a bit sluggish, weighed in two pounds less. Rose, who has a knockout option pending, weighed in at one pound more than on last, at 153 lbs.

Mullings defeated perennial semi-finalist Tsetsi Davis to book his place in this year’s final for a second time. Mullings also defeated Davis for the title in 2014, and at the weigh-in looked finely tuned and supremely confident for the landmark showdown.
