One half of the co-feature on the boxing card at Painters Mill last night was canceled. Baltimore welterweight Vincent Pettway wishes the second bout had been erased, too.
Pettway, 25 and a one-time contender, was stopped by unranked Stephan Johnson of Brooklyn, N.Y., at 2:14 of the sixth round before 1,700 at Painters Mill Theater and, more importantly, a national television audience.
With the loss, Pettway's record fell to 30-4.
The other featured fight, pitting former world champions Calvin Grove and Julian Solis, was canceled when Solis failed a neurological examination by the Maryland State Athletic Commission.
