    Shuffield knocks off Wilson unanimously

    SOUTHAVEN — Cody Shuffield was hit like nobody had ever hit him before Saturday night. He was bloodied and even appeared dazed a couple of times. He was exhausted and pushed to the limit but, in the end, he is still the PrizeFight Middleweight Champion.

    Shuffield, a Water Valley native and former member of the WVHS football team, took his lumps in his title bout with Abe Wilson at the Landers Center, but he did more than enough to retain the belt and remain undefeated in his professional MMA career.

    Thanks to a unanimous decision that was scored 30-27 on all three of the judge’s cards and to his ability to control the action in all three rounds, Shuffield was able to walk out of the caged ring with his fifth win in as many attempts. (May 21, 2012, Page 6)
