Bency edges Campos in Managua

WRAM Boxing (William Ramirez) and Nica Boxing (Pablo Osuna) put on their second show in less than a month Friday afternoon at the Gimnasio Nicarao in Managua, Nicaragua. It was a very early start to the very full fight card, which gave the locals some very well received entertainment while protests are going on in many parts of the country. The show was actually pushed back one week but Ramirez was determined to have the event still happen and that it did.

The main event saw former WBA regional titlist Winston Campos (30-5-5, 18 KOs) and David Bency (13-9-1, 4 KOs) battle it out in a crossroads fight between the two countrymen. The referee had little work to do in this one was the evenly matched fight saw very few clinches. The two fought at close quarters the entire 8 rounds. Campos had Bency briefly in trouble in round 7 rocking him with a very hard combination. Bency was wobbled but weathered the storm. Campos was the harder puncher without a doubt but the judges favored the lighter punching but more active Bency. No scores were read but Bency was declared the split decision winner.

Abel Sanchez stirs the pot

At the recent Golovkin-Alvarez Facebook press event, both GGG and Canelo were pretty tame in their comments on their upcoming rematch despite the hard feelings between the two.
