Unbeaten WBA #11 welterweight Jesus “Mono” Ramos (17-0, 14 KOs) went the distance the second straight time, winning a ten round unanimous decision over Brian Mendoza (19-2, 13 KOs) in a super welterweight bout on Sunday night at The Armory in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Ramos stalked Mendoza, who had some success boxing from outside. Ramos turned up the heat in the middle rounds and dominated down the stretch. Scores were 98-92 3x.

“He started to break a lot more as the fight went on,” said Ramos afterward. “I was coming on really strong. I thought I might have been able to stop him in some of those later rounds, but he was motivated to go the distance. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get back in the ring once more this year and finish out strong.”

In an upset, Marcos “Madman” Hernandez (15-4-2, 3 KOs won a ten round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten WBA #11 middleweight Armando “El Toro” Resendiz (12-1, 8 KOs). A knockdown was credited to Hernandez after a pushdown in round two, but Hernandez outworked Resendiz after that. Scores were 97-92, 96-93, 96-93.

Unbeaten lightweight Starling “El Poli” Castillo (16-0, 12 KOs) took an entertaining ten round unanimous decision over former world title challenger Juan Carlos “Mini-Burgos” Burgos (34-6-2, 21 KOs). Good two-way action with Castillo winning 96-94, 97-93, 98-92.

Super middleweight Kyrone Davis (16-2-1, 6 KOs) won an eight round unanimous decision over Martez McGregor (8-5, 6 KOs). The bout swung on three points deducted from McGregor – two points in round six for intentionally throwing an elbow and another point in round seven for hitting on the break. Scores were 75-74, 75-74, 77-72 for Davis. McGregor would have won without the deductions.

Lightweight Justin Cardona (6-0, 3 KOs) punished durable Jomar Robles (2-2, 1 KO) for six rounds to take a unanimous decision. Scores were 60-54 3x.

Super welterweight Travon Marshall (3-0, 2 KOs) scored a second round TKO over 41-year-old Maycon Da Silva (0-3, 0 KOs). Marshall dropped Da Silva with a right uppercut in round two. Da Silva beat the count, but the bout was waved off. Time was 1:03.

Super bantamweight Michael Angeletti (4-0, 3 KOs) scored a third round KO over Alexis Salido (2-2, 1 KO). Angeletti dropped Salido with a body shot in round two. The end came in round three when another body shot put Salido down again. Time was 2:24.

  • McGregor might be a headcase. If he didn’t throw that dumb ass elbow, he would have won. It was still a pretty good fight though.

  • MN is very corrupt. The only place in the USA where the criminals get celebrated like heroes, and the police get 25 year sentences.

    Fox was robbed a few weeks ago here, and now, Martez McGregor. McGregor got robbed, big time, and everyone knows it. That verdict was butt fucking bullshit, and the ref should get arrested for this shit.

    The MN attorney general is one of the more vicious women beaters and corrupt criminals in the USA.

    MN is not a good state.

  • So Brian Kenny thought Castillo “really brought it” in the last round against Burgos. Total garbage announcing.

  • It’s nice to see two preliminary fights, with almost no hugging and holding at all. Both great fights!

  • Ramos appears a club fighter, a nobody, headlining in the great state of MN. All bark and no bite. He will eat shit when he fights a live body. Papa Ramos ain’t gonna let it happen, though, and will milk it for all it is worth.

    • Lol Regis goes wild when someone disagrees with him. What Regis doesn’t know is boxing. When Ramos fights anyone with a pulse, his lights are out. Inconvenient truth for a small, angry Napoleon denier like Regis.

  • Ramos showed a lot of promise in his earlier matches. In this one, he was slowfooted and ponderous. He needed to move his feet much faster to close the distance to the always moving Mendoza. He lunged a little too often in throwing his punches, which would leave him vulnerable to a better fighter than Mendoza. He looked slow with his punches as well.

    There is still time for him to up his game since he really is awfully young and still maturing. However, his footwork in cutting off the ring really needs to improve significantly. Naoya Inoue is a master at moving his feet in and out to land his punches. Ramos should probably watch tape of his matches to see how Inoue is always balanced and throws punches from that balanced position. At this point, Ramos is just not ready to step up against the top fighters.
