BOXING: Dharry beats Mojica to extend winning streak
USA-based Guyanese Elton ‘Coolie Bully’ Dharry extended his winning streak, gaining a Unanimous Decision win over Oscar Mojica on Ronson Frank’s Uprising Promotions card at Club Amazura in Jamaica, Queens.
In an exceptional back-and-forth Bantamweight bout, Dharry used movement and attacked with volume when he found his openings, but Mojica stood strong in the pocket and was getting through with shots of his own throughout the contest.
The New York crowd was fully behind its native son, ready to erupt anytime Dharry started to mount his attack. Things did get interesting in the fifth round when Mojica unloaded a left hook that buckled Dharry, but he showed true grit to persevere from the shot and recovered by the latter part of the frame.
Over the second half of the fight, Dharry really started to turn up the volume and engaged a more focused attack on the body. One of his best moments came at the end of the seventh round when he had Mojica hurt in the corner, peppering him with a flurry as the bell rang to bring the frame to a close.
The following round, Dharry found himself at a disadvantage when he was deducted a point for low blows, but the infraction only seemed to ignite him the rest of the way.
Both fighters continued to give and take in a back-and-forth manner over the final two frames, concluding the 10th round with the same action they were bringing since the opening bell. In the end, Dharry impressed the ringside judges to a Unanimous Decision win, earning tallies of 98-91, 96-93 and 95-94.
With the win, Dharry extended his record to 23-5-1, and is now unbeaten in his last 20 fights. Mojica meanwhile, slipped to 11-5-0, suffering a fifth defeat in his last eight bouts. (Extract from WBN)
