Evan Field wins decision over Lou Savarese
June 30, 2007 by William K. Wolfrum
The fight was more action-packed than many would have imagined, as Field showed more energy than the average 44 year old. Field knocked Savarese down in the fifth and ninth rounds, and Savarese held on for dear life until the final bell.
Savarese had his best moment in round three, when he rocked Field with a solid right. Unable to shake off his inherent Lou Savarese-ness, however, Savarese was unable to follow up on the shot.
Nonetheless, the performance was one of the best for Savarese, 41, since the early 1990s, when he nearly attained fringe contender status. Still, he was unable to overcome Field’s accurate head butts and occasional combinations.
Following the bout, Field said he planned to continue his quest at winning the undisputed heavyweight crown, as well as continue to preach the word of the Lord while lying about not taking performance-enhancing drugs and perhaps having a few more children out of wedlock.
