Lawton boxer George Tahdooahnippah suffered his first career loss Friday night as Delvin Rodriguez won by TKO in the sixth round in Uncasville, Conn., on ESPN2 Friday Night Fights.
Tahdooahnippah, known as "Comanche Boy," is now 31-1-1. Referee Eddie Cotton stopped the fight at 2:41 in the sixth round, just four rounds after it appeared Tahdooahnippah would be unable to fight after a series of blows left him reeling at the end of the second round.
His corner, however, made sure the fight continued from there.
This was Tahdooanippah's first fight outside of Oklahoma.
Rodriguez is now 27-6-3.
