It’s was Good Night Goode when CASSIUS CHANEY Scored the UD Saturday Night @ Mohegan Sun.
The only boxer on the card from the northeast was 6’6, Cassius Chaney of New London, Connecticut. He stepped in the ring with his usual fro and some fancy trunks. His opponent, Juan “Good Night” Goode of Michigan was the smaller, stockier of the two. The bout went the distance with no knockdowns. Both fighters just didn’t have the punching power to knock either one out. Cassius controlled the bout with the jab and Goode came alive mostly during the last 10 seconds of each bout. Goode was trying to get on the inside since he was the shorter of the 2 fighters. Cassius probably had about 5-8 inches on Goode. During round 3 Cassius’ sole of his sneaker came off and with sum white tape it was all fixed. At times I could hear Boo Boo yelling commands ringside from his seat. After the 6 rounds all 3 judges scored the bout 59-55 in favor of Chaney. Cassius kept his perfect record and increased to 10-0-0, 5 Ko’s and Goode, 8-5-0, 6 kos.
