Canadian Bantamweight champion Andrew Singh Kooner overcame a cut near his left eye to take the nod over six rounds against Norman Allen Friday night at the Royal Oak Music Theatre in Royal Oak, Michigan. Kooner (10-2, 4KOs) was coming off a first round cut eye TKO loss in his last fight and had to be thinking "not again" when the blood started to flow early in the third round. He stayed steady and closed strongly, dropping Allen for counts in both the fifth and sixth rounds to win by scores of 59-53 and 58-54 (twice).
