Sechew Powell (born June 6, 1979) is an American professional boxer and world title challenger.
Nicknamed "Iron Horse", Powell was an amateur standout and was the 2000 National Golden Gloves Light Middleweight Champion and 2001 United States Amateur Light middleweight champion.
Powell turned pro in 2002 and was undefeated in his first 20 fights before losing to Kassim Ouma in 2006. In 2007 he won a close decision over Ishe Smith and had a KO win over Terrance Cauthen.
After racking up a 15-0 record, in May 2005 Powell met the also unbeaten Cornelius Bundrage. Seconds coming into the fight, Bundrage and Powell threw simultaneous right hands to each other's chin, resulting in an extremely rare double knockdown. In shock of the event the referee did not score any knockdowns and Powell immediately sent down Bundrage for the second time with a straight left, who fell two times while trying to stand up and the bout was stopped.
On June 11, 2008 Powell fought Deandre Latimore at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York City. Powell entered the fight ranked #1 by the IBF in the junior middleweight division. Both men hurt each other repeatedly throughout the fight, but it was Latimore who came up big in the seventh round when he hurt Powell with a right hook. An uppercut rocked Powell along the ropes and his head was repeatedly snapped back as he absorbed punch after punch. With less than a minute left in the round, the referee stepped in and called it off, much to the dismay of Powell. At the time of the stoppage, all three judges had the fight even, 57-57. Powell tested positive for marijuana in his post-fight drug test and was suspended for 60 days by the New York State Athletic Commission.
