In a super welterweight world title unification clash, WBC champion Jermell Charlo (34-1, 18 KOs) took the WBA and IBF belts of Jeison “Banana” Rosario (20-2-1, 13 KOs) by eighth round KO on Saturday night at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut. Charlo was credited with an early knockdown in round one, although it appeared Rosario’s foot slipped out of the ring. After that, Rosario proceeded to fight pretty well until the end of round six when he was knocked down again. This time he was hurt. A Charlo jab to the belly finished Rosario in round eight. Time was :21.

Charlo said afterward, “I definitely proved that I’m more than just a puncher, but I also showed again that I’m a big puncher. I’d give myself an A tonight. I stuck to my game plan and listened to my coach. Everything we did in camp, I used it in this fight. I pushed myself the whole way through training camp. It’s been a journey for me. I’m bringing the straps home to my family like they told me to. Continue reading “Charlo KOs Rosario, unifies WBC/WBA/IBF belts”

WBA super bantamweight champion Brandon Figueroa (21-0-1, 16 KOs) scored a savage tenth round TKO over game Damien Vasquez (15-2-1, 8 KOs) on Saturday night at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut. Things looked bad for Vasquez going in. He was a 50:1 underdog and ring announcer Jimmy Lennon Jr. accidentally introduced him as “Aaron Alameda” before the fight. But Vazquez came for war and gave Figueroa all he could handle for early on. By the midway point, the pressure and body attack of Figueroa wore out Vazquez and it turned into a massacre. The bout was finally stopped in round ten. Time was 1:18.

Figueroa said, “I felt good tonight. He was a lot tougher than I expected. I was punishing him to the body and head. I had to switch to lefty because of how he was coming in with his head. I didn’t want to risk a head butt so I boxed him differently. Continue reading “Figueroa retains WBA belt in war with Vazquez”
