Paul Jerry subdues Baxter

 20110202sp2

Redemption for one local athlete is sweet. Last Saturday, deep in the heart of Southeast Washington, D.C., in front of a raucous crowd of unsurely spectators at Paul’s Gym, King George High School grad Paul Cornelius Jerry out-punched a heavier John Baxter. Jerry, who weighed in at 122 pounds, was matched at the last minute against the 132-pound Baxter.
After sustaining a knock down in the round one in front of a partisan xxxx crowd, Jerry put together a series of combinations.
“I told him not to worry; find the body and the chin will follow,” Jerry’s father and trainer, Anthony Murrill, said. “Although the guy knocked him down with a punch that grazed his chin, Paul brushed it off in the next round. He went to work, battering his opponent on the punch stats, 10-3. I told Paul to put your chin on chest, and work his abdomen—and then bring the hook up.”

 

 


Beleaguered and confused by the faster, more athletic Jerry, Baxter responded with an occasional punch, while Jerry outmaneuvered him until the sound of the final bell.
Earlier in the month, Jerry lost two USA Boxing Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Virginia Regional Championship in Oxon Hill, Md., sanctioned fights; one by a narrow decision and the other by a cut over the eye. The losses prevented him from competing at a regional boxing tournament.
Jerry’s recent win has given him redemption and credibility in the world of amateur boxing.
“I told him before the fight, this may not be regionals, but it’s just as important, we’re in the hood, so we must represent,” Murrill said.
While his quest for the Golden Gloves could potentially start on Feb. 26 at the boxing tournament at Sugar Ray Leonard in Palmer Park, Md., Jerry has been invited to fight in New Jersey on April 28, while his father’s training services have been requested by other boxing camps that witnessed Paul’s latest win. In light of his 9-4 record, and his recent success, Jerry has been granted a bye during the first phase of the Golden Gloves tournament.
Meanwhile, before his next match, Jerry will continue to attend the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and train with famed boxer Fernando Guerrero at the Main Street Gym, in Salisbury, Md. Guerrero is undefeated at 20-0, featuring 16 knockouts.
