Bizarre Boxing Night: Doudou Ngumbu Injures Calf,  David Price Survives Bite Attack

By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Boxing Correspondent

Saturday night, March 30, 2019, was a bizarre night for boxing.

The game challenge of Doudou Ngumbu ended in failure when he retired during the fifth round at 2300 Arena with a calf injury, allowing Oleksandr Gvozdyk to retain his World Boxing Council World Light Heavyweight title by stoppage. Ngumbu was outboxed, but he was hanging in there with a good defense and some good punches thrown. Ngumbu was in too much pain to continue, so not much was proven by the Gvozdyk corner. Gvozdyk, 17-0 with 14 knockouts, Oxnard, California, beat the 38-9 Ngumbu of Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo, who at least showed up for 15 minutes of fame.

Result: Oleksandr Gvozdyk TKO 5 Doudou Ngumbu, Light Heavyweights (0:58)
Gvozdyk retains World Boxing Council World Light Heavyweight title
Referee: Eric Dali

At M & S Bank Echo Arena in Liverpool, 24-6 Liverpool heavyweight David Price won by fifth-round disqualification. After getting repeatedly hit behind the head, Price was wrestled to the floor and was bitten on the torso at the same time in a most Dracula move by 15-0 Birmingham opponent Kash Ali, who was immediately disqualified after his Mike Tyson impersonation. Ali bit Price four different times during the contest. Grow up already. Fight or don’t fight, but don’t cheat.


Result: David Price Win Disqualification 5 Kash Ali, Heavyweights (2:20)
Ali disqualified for biting. Ali lost a point for hitting behind the head.
