Runowski defeats Vargas in Toronto

Welterweight Przemyslaw Runowski (20-2, 5 KOs) scored a bloody ten round unanimous decision over local favorite Samuel Vargas (31-8-2, 14 KOs) on Sunday night at the Rebel Entertainment Complex, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It was a tough, gritty fight with Vargas mostly pressing the action. A cut outside Runowski’s right eye bled steadily for most of the fight. Runowski dropped Vargas with a left hook in round six, but Vargas came back and hurt Runowski with a body shot later in the round. Blood gushed from a cut over Vargas right eye in round nine. Scores were 97-92, 98-91, 98-91 for Runowski, which seemed too wide. Vargas insisted afterward that he won the fight and said he’s done with boxing and not coming back.

Unbeaten light heavyweight Pierre Hubert Dibombe (21-0-1, 11 KOs) stopped Sladan Janjanin (31-10, 24 KOs) in round five. Dibombe dropped Janjanin in round five and got the referee’s stoppage with his follow-up barrage. Time was 2:47.

Unbeaten featherweight Bryan Acosta (16-0, 5 KOs) outpointed Lamberto Macias (16-5-1, 12 KOs) over eight rounds. Scores were 80-72, 79-73, 79-73.
