Adler was outclassed. Adler was outboxed. Adler was out in the fifth round. Nikki Adler (16-1, 9 KOs) fell victim to the rising star of two-time Olympic Gold Medalist Claressa Shields (4-0, 2 KOs) on Friday night at the MGM Grand Detroit in Detroit, Michigan.

Free-swinging Japanese windmill, WBO#8 Ryo Akaho (31-2-2, 20 KOs), 117.5, retained his national belt as he kept throwing roundhouse blows, carelessly hit the deck but finally caught up with determined and durable #1 challenger Yuta Saito (10-8-3, 7 KOs), 117.75, to halt him at 1:13 of the ninth round on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan.

Having failed to win the WBC 115-pound title from Yota Sato (L12) here in 2012 and to acquire the vacant WBO bantam belt in the bout with Phuengluan Sor Singyu (KO by 2) in Thailand in 2015, Akaho went on the comeback trail and seized the vacant Japanese 118-pound belt by scoring a very unanimous decision over ex-WBC youth titlist Yushi Tanaka this March.

Beltran and Vasquez wasted no time as they exchanged in the opening round. In round two Beltran landed a solid left hook followed by some thudding punches as Vasquez stood and traded. Continuing to exchange in round three Vasquez did not take one step back as Beltran landed the left hook solidly. The fourth round saw Beltran back Vasquez to the ropes continuing to land big punches connecting with the left hook as the Costa Rican urged him to throw. In round five Vasquez fought well of the ropes as Beltran kept the pressure.

Halfway through in the sixth Beltran stayed on top of Vasquez continuing to pressure. The second half of the fight Beltran stalked with Vasquez circling the ring. Beltran suffered a cut in the ninth on his right eye from a clash of heads.

Shields wins WBC and IBF female 168lb world titles

By Brad Snyder at ringside

In a clash for the WBC and IBF female super middleweight world titles, two-time Olympic gold medalist Claressa Shields (4-0, 2 KOs) dominated reigning WBC champ Nikki Adler (16-1, 9 KOs) of Germany on Friday night at the MGM Grand in Detroit.

Photos; Stephanie Trapp/SHOWTIME

Shields seemingly couldn’t miss and pretty much landed at will. Referee Michael Griffin made a mercy stoppage in round five. Time was 1:34. Adler had pretty much stopped throwing punches and was taking damage from round one.

Featherweight Jesse Angel Hernandez improved to 9-1, 7 KOs, as he brutally beat down previously unbeaten and world-ranked super bantamweight Vladmir Tikhonov (16-1 9 KOs) over five rounds. Referee Ansel Steward stops the contest at the 2:25 mark of the fifth round, as Tikhonov was trapped in his corner and was unable to throw punches back. Tikhonov who was making his United States debut could not answer the power produced Hernandez.

Herrera edges Soto-Karass; Shabranskyy stops Unthank-May

By David Robinett at ringside
Photos: Tom Hogan – Tom Hogan Photography/Golden Boy Promotions

In an old school ESPN slugfest between two reliably exciting veterans of the ring, Mauricio Herrera (24-7, 7 KOs) banked enough rounds early to withstand the late rally of Jesus Soto Karass (28-12-4, 18 KOs) to earn a ten-round majority decision by scores of 95-95, 96-94, 96-94 in the main event at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California.

Both fighters worked behind the jab early, with Herrera the more active of the two. It was apparent early on that Herrera’s game plan was to box the bigger Soto Karass, and he generally did a good job early of avoiding prolonged exchanges. However Soto Karass kept coming forward, drawing Herrera into more frequent exchanges as the bout progressed. Surprisingly Herrera held his own trading punches with Soto Karass but utilized more boxing in rounds five and six, circling Soto Karass and relying on his left jab to keep Soto Karass at a safe distance. There were a handful of good exchanges in each of the middle rounds, but not enough for Soto Karass to change the momentum of the fight, with Herrera switching back to boxer-puncher whenever things started to tighten up. However by round eight the distance evaporated and the remainder of the fight was fought in close quarters with neither fighter taking a step back. Although Herrera countered effectively, the last three rounds clearly favored the heavier handed Soto Karass, who opened a bad cut over Herrera’s right eye in round nine and was beginning to overpower Herrera until he ran out of time at the final bell.
