On a fight card dubbed “Unfinished Business,” Monyette Flowers came up big, winning by a TKO in the second round of the featured bout at the Omni New Daisy Theatre on Tuesday (April 10) night.
Flower’s opponent was Tyrone Dowdy, who went the distance against Flowers in a losing effort at the New Daisy on Feb. 28. Determined to bring his fans a higher-level of satisfaction, Flowers of Flowers Power boxing had vowed that he was “coming back to put somebody to sleep.”

As both boxers began with a frenzy, throwing punches at each other, it seemed like the fight would be ending in the first round.
Flowers had Dowdy against the ropes mid-first round. What looked to be a knockout was only a push by Flowers (which he apologized for).
After the first round, it was very much one sided.
Round 2: Flowers approached Dowdy as if he had “unfinished business,” greeting Dowdy with a barrage of punches. Sensing danger, the referee stepped in to stop the fight, making Flowers the winner by TKO.
Tuesday’s boxing card was a product of CDA Promotions in conjunction with Flowers Power Boxing. Flowers Power links Monyette Flowers with his three brothers – Emmanuel, Nicholas and Duran – in a budding effort to promote up and coming fighters, giving them chances they did not have. Brothers Emmanuel and Nicholas were be featured on the fight card. Brother Duran is a trainer.
Other winners of the night were:
Nicholas Flowers-Memphis, (KO, First Round)
Anthony Bailey-Memphis, (TKO, Second Round)
Emmanuel Flowers-Memphis, (KO, Second Round)
Triston Todd-Memphis, (TKO, Second Round)
