'Big Cat Defeats Dallas Policeman'
How far had Cleveland Williams slipped.
Cleveland got clearly outboxed over the first '6-Rounds versus 'journeyman'
'South Dallas Policeman' Sonny Moore, who gave the 'Big Cat' a tough time.
Cleveland had to go 'balls out' to win the last 4-Rounds, to squeeze out a close
Cleveland got 'banged' around pretty good in the early rounds, and a 'lucky' right hook
broke Sonny Moore's nose, which changed the 'flow' of the fight.
The fans boo'd the 'Big Cat', and the 'questionable' Decision.
The 28 year-old Sonny Moore, brought in a record of 19-19-2 (10 KO's), and the 6' 2" 210 lb.
Dallas Heavyweight was considered nothing more than a 'super easy opponent' for the 'Big Cat'.
After this bout, the boxing pundits reported, 'The Big Cat has no more lives left, he's done.'
