Anthony Dirrell returned to his hometown of Flint, Michigan, and picked up a win in the PBC on FS1 main event, scoring a technical decision victory over Denis Douglin in the super middleweight fight.

The fight was halted in the sixth round after a cut was opened on Dirrell’s head, caused by a clash of heads. Scores were 48-47, 48-47, and 49-46, all for Dirrell, who improves to 31-1-1 (24 KO) with the win.

Douglin is now 20-6 (13 KO) with his second straight loss.

Welterweight prospect Jamontay Clark, fighting in the junior middleweight division against Domonique Dolton, picked up a questionable majority decision win in an eight-round fight. Scores were 76-76, 77-75, and 78-74, the latter two for Clark, who improves to 13-0 (7 KO).

Clark, 23, is very tall for his weight at 6’2”, and has obvious skills and promise, but Dolton (19-2-1, 10 KO) dictated much of the fight, from where I sit watching the TV, and simply looked like the better, more polished fighter.

The 27-year-old Dolton falls to 19-2-1 (10 KO) with the defeat.

In an entertaining opening fight for the telecast, junior welterweight prospect Ryan “Cowboy” Karl improved to 15-1 (9 KO) with an eight-round decision victory over Kareem Martin (9-2-1, 3 KO). Karl and Martin both got hurt in the fight, but both stayed upright throughout, even with a hard charge from Karl in the eighth and final round.

Scores were 77-75, 78-74, and 78-74, all for Karl, whose handlers are said to want to get him in with a “top 15” fighter at 140 next.
