Undercard Results from the Forum

By David Robinett and Miguel Maravilla at ringside

Welterweight contender Marcelino Lopez (34-2-1, 19 KOs) fought back a spirited challenge from faded but game Breidis Prescott (30-12, 22 KOs), to score a knockout just before the bell at 2:59 of round five in a scheduled eight-round bout. Despite normally fighting a weight class lower than Prescott, Lopez traded with the bigger man from the start. The two put on an entertaining show, trading punches off and on early before Lopez started to pull away in round five. A short right hook by Lopez clipped Prescott late in the fifth and sent him to the canvas. Prescott beat the count in decent shape but went toe to toe with Lopez as the latter tried to close the show. A much bigger right hook caught Prescott flush right before the bell and dropped him on all fours, where he was counted out.

Filipino lightweight Romero Duno (16-1, 14 KOs) made quick work of Yardely Armenta (21-10, 12 KOs) in scoring a first round knockout. Duno was aggressive from the start attacking Armenta as a right hand did it dropping Armenta as referee Jerry Cantu reached a ten count at 1:07 of the first.

Undercard Results from Latvia

By Marco Bratusch at ringside

2016 Olympic bronze medal Filipi Hrgovic (3-0, 3 KOs) stopped British Tom Little (10-5, 3 KOs) in round four of their scheduled eight round heavyweight contest. The Croatian put on a strong start in round one, following Little through the ring an landing a straight right flush just before the bell, which made Little wobble and as he looked for the stool. Little tried to fire back in round two in order to earn some respect from Hrgovic landing something big but he does not seem to have the necessary stamina to keep his hands go continuously. The Birt showed his cheeky temperament in round three yelling at Hrgovic’s face to provoke him but the former Olympian stick to his plan, using his jab and fighting at a decent pace. In round four, Little did land a good right punch but then suffered the Hrgovic comeback, which after a flurry of punches forced referee Daniel Van de Wiele to stop his foe. Little was cut on his left eyebrow and had some trouble for a few seconds after the stoppage as he struggles to regain his balance. Continue reading “Undercard Results from Latvia”

Hearn: Parker never hit with Joshua’s ferocity and speed

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

Eddie Hearn, promoter of IBF, WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, has warned WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker that getting hit by Joshua is no laughing matter. Parker is on the record saying he will smile when Joshua lands his best shots.

”Apparently [Parker is] going to laugh when Anthony Joshua hits him on the chin. I hope he doesn’t. If he does, I think we’ve got something to worry about, because when Anthony Joshua hits you on the chin, I don’t think laughing is one thing you’ll be doing. But interesting comment,” Hearn told Sky Sports. “They say he’s got a granite chin, but he’s never been hit with the ferocity and speed of Anthony Joshua. It’s going to be a huge event on March 31 and one we cannot wait for.”

70,000 tickets already been sold according to Hearn.
