PRICE DEFEATS STARKS ON NBCSN

Javontae Starks (13-2, 7 KOs) of Minneapolis was stopped in round seven last Saturday night at the Cowboys Dancehall in San Antonio, Texas by Darwin Price (11-0, 6 Ko’s). Starks had dropped down to super lightweight and had a good first and second round as he and Price traded jabs and punches on equal terms. Price dropped Starks in round three with a right hand that followed two lead jabs. Starks gathered himself in the fourth around and fought back in rounds five and six. However, Price was landing the double jab, right hand combination continuously and the combo hurt Starks again in the seventh before a number of unanswered shots along the ropes brought on the stoppage at 1:52 of the seventh round. The fight was televised on the NBC Sports Network.
