Webster looked impressive in the four round affair.
New Jersey Native Rolls in Victory over William Chouloute
Boxing fans at the Hamilton Manor in New Jersey were given a glimpse at one of the top prospects in the super middleweight division on Saturday night, with unbeaten New Jersey native Derrick Webster (6-0, 4 KOs) taking on William Chouloute (1-2, 1 KO) of Chicago. Webster used a powerful right jab and some quick footwork over this bout’s four rounds of competition, eventually taking a flush 40-35 tally from each of the ringside judges to score a unanimous decision win.
Webster, a southpaw who fights out of Glassboro, came out firing a quick right-handed jab from the onset of the opening bell, holding down the center of the ring by staying on his bicycle. Chouloute tried to find some openings and loaded up on a right hand of his own, but the fast feet of Webster kept him out of his reach. The Chicago resident did catch some pretty heavy blows from his opposition, but he was able to keep his overall composure fairly well.
That same type of pace continued into the second and third round, but Webster did begin to power up on the jab, which caused some damage. He remained very elusive to the advances of his opponent as well, keeping himself out of harm’s way while countering with some well plotted combinations.
In the fourth and final round of this bout, the action started at a frantic pace. Among some great exchanges, the punches were coming in huge numbers, but it was Webster who was getting the best of the confrontation. Once he hurt Chouloute, he began to absolutely unload on him and did not slow his pace at all until his opposition hit the canvas. Proving he is a resilient fighter, Chouloute did return to his feet, but he was unable to mount too much of a comeback. The overall pace of the action slowed after that hectic beginning, and the two competitors eventually left the result in the hands of the judges.
When the score cards were pulled, it was then that the clean slate in favor of Webster was revealed.
