Unbeaten prospect Isaac Arias (11-0, 9 KOs) of Venezuela upset former world title challenger Dewayne Beamon (21-5-2, 15 KOs) of North Carolina by majority decisión to win the vacant WBC International silver super flyweight title. The event took place Saturday night at the Coliseo Elias Chegwin, in Barranquilla, Colombia.

Arias closed the fight strong to edge out the victory on the scorecards. The official judges’ scorecards were 96-94 twice for Arias and 95-95.

“I had a long week,” stated Stevenson afterward. “I killed myself to make weight. All I want to do is come in here and perform. I did everything I could to do that.

“I’m just a dominating individual. With me versus him, the ref, I did everything I could to try and beat {Conceicao} up as much as I could. He held me the whole night, but I did everything I could. I think he was doing a lot of holding whenever I was getting on the inside. As soon as I got on the inside, he grabbed me. Continue reading “Stevenson dominates Conceição, heads to 135”
