Pettway KO'd in 6th round

November 14, 1990

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.

In other bouts, Baltimore junior welterweight Eddie Van Kirk stopped Mike English in the eighth, middleweight Kenny Wrack boosted his record to 7-0 by outpointing Turral Harris, welterweight Ponny Matador won a spirited four-round bout with Glenn Randolph and Rockville middleweight Les Johnson KO'd Lynn Robertson in the third round.
