Vianello, Shabranskyy Win Vegas Walkout Bouts

By David Robinett at ringside

In the first of three walkout bouts in Las Vegas, Italian heavyweight Guido Vianello (5-0, 5 KOs) had an easy time with Cassius Anderson (7-2, 3 KOs), earning a stoppage when Anderson did not come out for the fourth and final round. Vianello scored a flash knockdown right after the opening bell, and was never threatened by Anderson, steadily beating him down until his corner had seen enough after three rounds.

Near midnight in a virtually empty T-Mobile Arena, former light heavyweight title challenger Vyacheslav Shabranskyy (21-2, 17 KOs) closed out the card with an eighth round disqualification victory over ex-WBA interim champion Felix Valera (18-3, 15 KOs). Shabranksyy was en route to an easy unanimous decision victory but Valera repeatedly fouled him with low blows, losing points in round five and round seven, before referee Robert Byrd disqualified him at 2:01 of the eighth and final round rather than take a third point.

A scheduled bout between welterweights Abram Martinez (7-0, 5 KOs) and Kevin Johnson (7-1, 4 KOs) did not take place.
