Rasheed takes SCL belt

DENVER, Co. (KKCO/KJCT) Masai Rasheed of Rival Boxing Gym of GRand Junction won the 144-pound Sparta Combat League title on Saturday at the Pepsi Center.

Rasheed defeated Milton Roque in a unanimous decision.

"It kind of felt like one of those déjà vu moments," said Rasheed. "It felt like I've been there already because I've replayed me winning so many times in my head.

It was Rasheed's first appearance on a professional card.

"Next is to go down the list of Colorado's best," said Rasheed. "We already got a couple ones lining up. We're going to skip the cherry picking part because normally fighters build their records up. We're going to skip that part and go straight for the best."
