While Morello's Team and ... [cached]

While Morello's Team and supporters were excited and confident, Anthony McGaughey and his trainer Scott Mincey pretty much kept to themselves and stayed calm and quiet all day long...

In fact, after Saturday night many in the house wondered if McGaughey even knows what pain is.
But McGaughey never even flinched. McGaughey took everything Morello offered and still averaged over 16 kicks per round compared to Morello's
Still, McGaughey was quick and smooth throughout the entire fight, never letting Morello's aggressive game plan take him out of his.
Neither fighter seemed to ever be hurt in the battle (Easy for us to say from outside the ring.. .) but both left everything they had in the ring at the end of 5. when the scores were announced McGaughey had won the unanimous decision 48-47, 49-46 and 48-47 in a bout that appeared to many watching to not be as close as the scores.
Anthony McGaughey of Norman, Oklahoma, USA (27-1-1/16, 157, 5'11", 27) defeated Mike Morello of Santa Barbara, California, USA (8-6-1/2, 157, 5-10", 32 ) by unanimous decision 48-47, 49-46 and 48-47.
Tomorrow night either Anthony McGaughey of Norman, Oklahoma, USA or Mike Morello of Santa Barbara, California, USA will become one of only 6 IKF Amateur World Champions.
So the question is, will Saturday's bout between Anthony McGaughey and Mike Morello top any of these past IKF Amateur World Title bouts?
Anthony McGaughey and the IKF were first introduced at the 2000 IKF National Amateur Tournament in Council Bluff's, Iowa, USA. In his opening round bout he stopped Frank Glover of Lake Zurich, Illinois by TKO at 1:59 of round 3. In the final he faced the highly experienced Marc Mayfield of St Louis Missouri who had an impressive record of 17-5-1. McGaughey stopped Mayfield by TKO at 1:22 of the 3rd round to win the 2000 IKF FCR Light Middleweight National Title.
Davenport Iowa, USA, McGaughey successfully defended his Title when he defeatedNeil Halmstad of Wrenshall, Minnesota, USA by unanimous decision 30-27 on all 3 judges cards.
At the 2002 IKF North American Amateur Tournament in Simpsonville, South Carolina, USA, McGaughey defeated last minute replacement fighter Shaun Gay of Valdosta, Georgia, USA by TKO at 1:02 of the second round.
The win gave McGaughey his 4th IKF National Tournament Title. He may have won 5 if not for the late move of last years IKF Tournament from Cedar Rapids, Iowa to Orlando Florida. He had planned to attend in Iowa but the change of venue did not allow their team time to fund-raise to make the trip. McGaughey's only loss came when he took a fight he had to step up in weight for.
McGaughey had planned to turn professional last year but just never made the move. With an amateur record of 26 wins, 1 loss and 1 draw and 16 wins by KO/TKO, it's clear he will have experience on his opponent.
However Mike Morello (Right & Below Left) of Santa Barbara, California, USA is not planning to rely on his past to get him the IKF World Title. Morello says he is "Hungry" for this win and he may be more hungry than McGaughey. No offense intended towards McGaughey but look at what he has accomplished. Will McGaughey have any problems getting motivated for yet " Another" title?
Without McGaughey there the division was open and anyone could win and no one would have any bye rounds.
However, McGaughey deserved the shot here since he was still amateur and his resume confirms it.
Adding to that meeting with McGaughey the year before Hudson met up with Kevin Engle in the final who beat him by unanimous decision 29-28, 30-27 & 30-27.

Anthony McGaughey of Norman, ... [cached]

Anthony McGaughey of Norman, Oklahoma, USA. In 2000 Anthony made his IKF debut at the National Tournament. There he started a relationship with the IKF where he won a total of 6 IKF light Middleweight Titles which included 4 IKF National Tournament titles, 1 North American Title and finally, the winning of the IKF Amateur World Title earlier this year. His wins included;

There are some similarities between Stephen and Anthony McGaughey.
So what is the difference between Stephen and Anthony?
But when Anthony didn't have a fight, Matt stepped in and fought an exhibition bout with him, which was the first time a Junior bout of any type happened at the National Tournament.

6th loss was to Anthony ... [cached]

6th loss was to Anthony McGaughey who is also a multi IKF Champion. I lost by decision. I have been told that I fight like a pro and not busy enough at times fighting in the amateurs so that may have been a down fall for me.

Would you like to have a rematch with McGaughey in the pros without the you think the outcome would be different? MM: " Hell ya! I'd like to do it again! He's a good clean fighter but he didn't whoop me! I kick myself in the ass every time I think about it! :( I just should have been (rrrrrrrrrr) busier that fight! He had won the IKF NAC Tournament 4 years in row and I think his only loss was to Kevin Engel. (At a weightclass above McGaughey's normal fight weight) My decision to turn pro was based on the last couple fights we've done. They went well and were against some good opponents that fight as good as some pros do and we had no big time troubles. So hey, what the heck! Bring it on! YES! I'd like to have a rematch with Anthony in the pro's and if it happens, it will be different without headgear and Anthony will see why they call me the Mad Dog!"
