Bazinyan, Butler, Ulysse victorious

Unbeaten WBA #5, WBC #12 super middleweight Erik Bazinyan 28-0, 21 KOs) scored a workmanlike ten round unanimous decision over Marcelo Esteban Coceres (30-4-1, 16 KOs) in a bout for the NABF and NABA 168lb titles on Thursday night at the Montreal Casino in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. This fight was a bellwether for Bazinyan, as Coceres dropped Edgar Berlanga in his previous fight. Bazinyan got the decision, but didn’t particularly impress. Scores were 98-92, 100-90, 100-90.

Former world title challenger Steven Butler (30-3-1, 25 KOs) hammered out a hard fought ten round unanimous decision over Brandon Brewer (25-2-2, 11 KOs) in a bout for the vacant NABF middleweight title. Brewer took a lot of punishment but managed to last the full ten. Scores were 100-90, 100-89, 99-90.

Super lightweight Yves Ulysse Jr (21-2, 12 KOs) scored a third round KO over Reuquen Cona Facundo Arce (14-7-2, 7 KOs). Ulysse dropped Arce to a knee and he stayed down for the full ten. Time was 1:59.

  • Crazy Jardon strikes again! Both of his last two wins are against 13-0 fighters.
    And I wonder if, when his suspension is over, they’d put Berlanga in with Bazinyan.
