Gray-Pitts Doesn’t get the Knockdown but wins by UD.
[Friday, February 19, 2016 – Providence, Rhode Island] Unbeaten and STAYS UNBEATEN is junior middleweight Khiary Gray-Pitts of Worcester, Massachusetts who successfully won the Universal Boxing Federation (UBF) International Junior Middleweight Title that went the distance after 10 rounds against Eduardo Flores of Ecuador. For the majority of the bout Gray-Pitts continued working the body head combinations while Flores kept going for the overhand right with little head movement from Flores. Flores at times hitting Gray-Pitts behind the head but at no time was a point deducted. In round 4 Flores claims he was hit below the belt. Gray toying with Flores from time to time. Gray-Pitts can’t seem to knock him down and I can’t remember the last time he went past 4 rounds in a fight.
Gray originally was scheduled to face Cameron Rivera for the vacant World Boxing Council (WBC) Youth Title but due to a fractured his wrist this bout was cancelled.
Gray increased his record to 12-0-0, 9 Kos and Flores decreases to 23-20-3, 15 Kos.
