Promoter Kris Lawrence (The Heavyweight Factory) presented an entertaining night of boxing Friday night at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. In the main event, unbeaten WBA #6 heavyweight and former Cuban amateur heavyweight standout Lenier Pero (11-0, 8 KOs) TKO’d hard-punching 6’10 Donnie Palmer (12-4-1, 10 KOs) of Massachusetts in round one of a scheduled for 10 round bout.

Also middleweight and highly decorarted amateur Yoenlis Hernandez (3-0, 3 KOs) of Cuba dominated in his first ten round bout. He stopped the much more experienced Alfredo Rodolfo Blanco (23-12, 11 Ko’s) of Argentina in round one.

  • Terrible card! Palmer was completelly out of shape! He was more interested in cashing his check to buy beer! The ring girls were the only interested thing of the whole fight card!

  • The WBA will put him in with Ivan Dychko or Johnathan Guidry or Cassius Chaney or Kubrat Pulev or Mahmoud Charr in a lame make believe “title fight”.

    • Maybe the WBA should be designated as an organization in recess:
      Permanent recess.

  • The level of Palmer in this fight was what you would expect from a rookie, someone who has been at the gym for a month or two.

    Looked at his record.

    There is nothing of substance in Palmer’s numbers. His biggest credit is a win over Saribekian, who didn´t win a fight during his last 13 years as a fighter. A name stands out in Palmers record, Joe Joyce. Needless to say, Palmer was out just after 30 seconds.

    I have not been impressed by Pero either earlier and this fight proved nothing.

    This was a bit like buying a used car that should have been banned from driving.
