Gomez wins unanimous decision vs Arnett in an action packed fight

Unbeaten junior middleweight Eddie Gomez moved his record to 16-0 with 10 KO’s with a ten-round unanimous decision win against Daquan Arnett in the televised co-feature. In a fight between two evenly-matched, undefeated boxers, Gomez just wound up being the better fighter. The scorecards reflected that reality as the judges submitted wide scores of 98-91 and 97-92 (twice) for Gomez. A right hook to the head and a follow-up left hook to the body dropped Arnett in the seventh. Gomez tried mightily hard to finish off his opponent right after but Arnett weathered the follow-up barrages and even scored with some wide shots himself inside Gomez’s guard. Both men got into a dirty punch swapping contest in the eighth when the referee was slow to break a clinch but it was clear that the action from the round before had slowed both men. By the tenth and final round, the crowd was intermittently booing at the lack of action, although that was largely a result of the exhaustion of the fighters than it was a testament to their disinterest in engaging one another. The Florida-based Arnett is now 11-1 with seven wins via stoppage. “It was my first ten rounder,” Gomez said in the ring directly after the fight concluded. “Arnett was tough but I knew that going in there. I’m happy about the win.”
