Lopez, Alvarado, Lara triumph

World ranked super flyweight Melvin “Melo” Lopez (14-0, 9 KOs) of Nicaragua made his bantamweight debut a successful one. Lopez unanimously decisoned Yonathan Padilla (18-4, 8 KOs) of Mexico over 10 rounds to win the WBC youth bantamweight title on Saturday night at the Gimnasio Nicarao in Managua, Nicaragua. It looked like it would be an early night when Lopez dropped Padilla in round 1. Padilla appeared seriously hurt but survived the round. Lopez had Padilla down again in round 2 where Padilla again beat the count. The rest of the fight was one-sided for Lopez as Padilla was very hesitant from there on out having tasted Lopez power. The official scorecards read 100-88 across the board. Continue reading “Lopez, Alvarado, Lara triumph”

Hart, Jennings win Philly ring wars

North Philly super middleweight Jesse Hart, 24-1, 20 KOs, scored a seventh round TKO over Demond Nicholson of Laurel, MD, 18-3-1, 17 KOs, on Saturday night at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, PA. Nicholson hurt Hart with a right in the first, but Hart dominated most of the action on this night. Hart dropped Nicholson twice in round three and then finished the fight in round seven of the scheduled 10-rounder. In the seventh, Hart wobbled Nicholson, and Demon squatted down, touching both gloves on the mat. Referee Shawn Clark did not call it a knockdown. Nicholson got up and when the fight resumed, Hart swarmed him, drove him across the ring, and put him down again. Nicholson refused to get up and Clark waved the fight to an end at 2:26 of the seventh. The win earned Hart the vacant NABF super middleweight title.

North Philly’s Bryant Jennings, 23-2, 13 KOs, defeated Tacony’s Joey Dawejko, 19-5-4, 11 KOs, by 10-round unanimous decision to win the vacant PA State heavyweight title. The first half of the all-Philly fight was fairly close. However, Jennings pulled away in the second half to nail down the victory. Both fighters landed many good shots, but Jennings was the clear winner. All three judges scored the bout 98-92 for Bryant. My tally was a point closer, 97-93.

Abraham beats Nielsen by split decision

Former middleweight and super middleweight world champion Arthur Abraham (47-6, 30 KOs) scored a twelve round split decision over Patrick Nielsen (29-3, 14 KOs) on Saturday night at the Baden-Arena in Offenburg, Germany. Operating behind his famous double guard, the 38-year-old Abraham stalked Nielsen and landed the harder shots. Nielsen had the higher workrate. Abraham was credited with a knockdown in round ten after Nielsen went to the canvas following some rough-housing in a corner. Scores were 114-113 for Nielsen, 116-111, 116-111 for Abraham.

WBSS super middleweight semi-final substitute Nieky Holzken (14-1, 11 KOs), who took Callum Smith twelve rounds in February as a late sub, returned with a third round TKO over journeyman Bernard Donfack (23-19-4, 11 KOs). Holzken dropped Donfack in round three and Donfack’s corner soon after threw in the towel.

Unbeaten light heavyweight prospect Leon Bunn (9-0, 6 KOs) added the name of Tomas Adamek to his resume, although this was Czech journeyman Tomas Adamek (26-16-2, 9 KOs), not the former two-division world champion. Bunn won by eight round unanimous decision, no scores announced.
