WBO #1 Espinoza stops Nunez

Hard-punching WBO #1 rated bantamweight Ricardo “Hindu” Espinoza (23-2, 20 KOs) of Tijuana, Mexico scored a sudden tenth round TKO over former two-time world title challenger Ricardo “El Matematico” Nunez (29-9, 23 KOs) on Friday night at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. Espinoza looked headed to a unanimous decision when he rocked Nunez in the tenth round and got a referee’s stoppage with a barrage of shots that left Nunez helpless along the ropes.

It was a much tougher “stay busy” fight than customary for a #1 contender with a title challenge on the horizon. The two seasoned pros exchanged with authority over and over, with Panama’s Nunez winning his share of the trades. Continue reading “WBO #1 Espinoza stops Nunez”

Photos: Darryl Cobb Jr.

Cruiserweight Brian Howard (14-2, 11 K0s) relocated to Philadelphia last year to re-energize his boxing career. He did just that late Saturday night, electrifying the crowd with a stunning first-round knockout of the usually durable Garrett Wilson (18-16-1, 9 K0s) at Parx Casino’s Xcite Center in Bensalem, Pennsylvania.

Howard dropped Wilson with a thunderous right hand early in the first round as the two cruiserweights came out slugging. Wilson beat the referee’s count, and though wobbly, seemed as if he would make it to the bell before Howard put him down again 2 minutes, 31 seconds into the first. This time the referee immediately called a stop. Continue reading “Howard rocks Wilson in cruiserweight showdown”

In the main event at the 2300 Arena in South Philly, PA state junior middleweight champ Tyrone Brunson, 28-7-2, 25 KOs, stopped Jamaal Davis, 18-13-1, 7 KOs, in round nine to retain his state title belt Friday night.

Brunson set a tone for the bout in the opening round. Near a neutral corner, Tyrone landed a hard right that slightly wobbled Davis. He survived the attack, but that punch foreshadowed how the rest of the fight would unfold. Continue reading “Brunson halts Davis in nine”
