Sam Houston Coliseum

'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
10-Round Decision.

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.'
