Ryizeemmion “The Humble Beast” Ford got the job done, and made short work of Charles Clark Saturday night at Gionta Management’s Winter Mayhem pro boxing event at the Pittsburgh Shrine Center. “Ohio runs boxing and you know this,” exclaimed the fighter from Alliance, Ohio following his dominant performance that saw Clark’s corner throw in the towel just before the end of the first round.
Ford came out at the beginning of the round and immediately started working his jab, snapping it off the end of Clark’s face repeatedly, and then mixing it up by whipping at the body too. He controlled the distance, the tempo, and appeared to have a mental advantage in addition to being the more highly skilled fighter.
Clark attempted to get in the fight by firing a few shots with a minute to go in the first, but Ford weathered the attack with ease, and went back on offense. Ford had Clark up against the ropes, then backed him into the corner and unloaded a fury of crosses and hooks, upstairs and downstairs, and Clark’s corner had clearly seen enough.
Ford now has a record of 7-1 and we’re sure to see him in the ring again soon, saying he’s going to “sit back and talk to my team, see what the next move is.” And while Ford didn’t specifically call anyone out, he says “ain’t no safety on this block, so anybody can get it.”
Ford also took a moment to thank his supporters, “I appreciate all my fans coming out, thank you for all your support, I love y’all non-stop, until the next one, let’s go!” Ford is a MILLIONS athlete and you can support him on his quest for a belt by buying his merchandise.
