Woods beats Gonzalez again!

IBF light heavyweight champion Clinton Woods (41-3-1) retained his title at the Sheffield Arena tonight with an exciting and hard fought points victory over #2 ranked Mexican Julio Gonzalez (41-4). In the fourth defense of his title Woods boxed well on the inside and landed the superior volume and quantity of punches. He won by unanimous scores of 117-111, 115-113 and 116-112. There were no knockdowns in the fight but both fought with great heart and determination to provide the 6,000 crowd with an exciting contest over the distance. Gonzalez seemed fatigued in the eleventh round and Woods pushed the pace to try and force the finish but the brave Mexican showed heart and held on. Both fighters finished with cuts over their right eyes in an absorbing contest. This was a rematch of their 2005 bout which Woods also won on the scorecards with a unanimous decision and was Woods' first fight in over a year since defeating Glen Johnson in their third fight. With Johnson now ranked #1 by the IBF a fourth bout is likely in early 2008.
