Lavarn “Baby Bowe” Harvell Does It Again!


Saturday night,  on the undercard of the Majewski v. Fitzpatrick fight at Bally’s Atlantic City, Lavarn Harvell stole the show, again! Advancing his record to 12-0 with 7 Kos. Although, it wasn’t the one punch devastation that we saw just a few weeks ago at the Robert Treat Hotel in Newark, NJ. This fight ended two minutes and twenty-seven seconds into the first round via TKO.


Harvell had his opponent, Mojeed Okedara, down twice before the fight was called to a halt when he went down for a third time. I asked Harvell after the fight if he was surprised when Okedara got up. He simply said “No.” and explained that “I usually can tell if they are gonna get up or not, based on the punch I land, I knew he wasn’t down for the count.” What did surprise him was the power that his opponent maintained after going down. “He had his legs back right away. I felt everything he hit me with.”


One might wonder, with the quality of opponent that Harvell has been facing (Okedara’s record is now 3-4) has he taken hard shots before? “I have taken hard shots before. I feel good about the quality of my opponents thus far, records don’t always tell the whole story.” Honestly, I think that “Baby Bowe” will do just fine no matter the record of his next opponent or who he will face in Atlantic City in August.


One thing can be said. As long as he continues to focus, and listen to his corner as attentively as he did last night, he can hurt anyone with his power. I had a predicted a 3rd round KO going into last night’s fights. I can’t say I am mad I was wrong, Harvell is one to watch.
