BY: Shohreh Schaghaghi, Ringside, (Journeymen Boxing) – Tim Lawrence goes for broke and the knockout against Michael Lee during their 152lb open clash bout during week four of the 2015 New Jersey Golden Gloves. Lawrence (Middletown PAL) hung in there but lost a tight split-decision against the gritty Lee (Ringside).
The bout was a back and forth affair but it was Lawrence that showed tremendous heart and guts as he continued to pepper shots against Lee, who was constantly covering up during the second round.
With nothing to lose late in the round, Lawrence closed his eyes and wound up a wild looping right hand that stunned Lee, who was pushed back up against the ropes. Lee, though, was able to recover and make it out of the round.
He would then take over the final stanza and win on the scorecards against a tough opponent in Lawrence in what turned out to be the Journeymen Boxing’s “Fight of the Night” as well as the Photo of the Day!
