Hagerstown, MD super middleweight “The Sexy Albanian” Genc Pllana won a six-round majority decision over Jason Bell of District Heights, MD during the main event of the Cynation Sports card at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, MD.
Although he looked wild at times, Pllana was able to land more of the cleaner blows in the contest. Pllana kept his left-hand low but was able to bring it up in time to land quick jabs and hooks. In the second round, Pllana was able to keep Bell at bay with sweeping lefts and rights. Pllana also showed confidence in the round by adding some shuffling footwork during the round.
Bell would make a comeback in the middle rounds as he would pressure Pllana and get him against the ropes to land shots but Pllana seemed to have an answer with his jab. Pllana closed the show in the sixth round with a great combination of hand speed and accuracy. Judge John Gradowski saw a draw at 57-57 but judges Vic DeWysocki and Steve Rados saw the bout 59-55 for Pllana, who is now 2-0, one KO. Bell loses for the first time and he is now 3-1, one KO.
