Undefeated 2016 Lithuanian Olympian welterweight Eimantas Stanionis (11-0, 8 KOs) scored a ninth round TKO over Justin DeLoach (19-5, 10 KOs) on Wednesday night at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Stanionis broke down DeLoach and dropped him twice in round nine. The bout was waved off after Stanionis’ follow-up barrage. Time was 2:53.

Unbeaten super welterweight Chordale Booker (16-0, 7 KOs) won an eight round split decision over Sonny Duversonne (11-2-2, 8 KOs). Scores were 77-75 Duversonne, 77-75, 77-75 Booker.

Unbeaten super lightweight Kent Cruz (16-0-1, 10 KOs) was victorious when Erik Castillo (9-3, 3 KOs) didn’t come out with round three.

  • The Duversonne-Booker scores would be more accurate if they all favored Sonny, he won that fight and should get an immediate rematch…tho I doubt the Booker team will give him one.

  • Stanionis was impressive against DeLoach. I thought his work rate was low in the early rounds, but he was using his jab effectively and he was making his punches count. He’s a little short for the weight class and his reach is also relatively short. However, he was outjabbing the much taller DeLoach and when he stepped it up in the middle rounds, it was just a matter of time before he broke down his opponent and stopped him.

    I’ve seen Stanionis fight before, but I believe he has improved since those fights. He is now much more patient and that jab was a real weapon for him. He just needs to be a little more busy in the early rounds.

    DeLoach can be a really tough opponent if you give him room to move freely and allow him to build confidence. Stanionis never let him feel comfortable and pressed the action from the opening bell.

    I’d like to see Stanionis against a ranked opponent next. He may not be ready for Spence, Ugas or Porter, but someone like Lipinets or Clayton would be appropriate as the next step.

    • Agreed. I think Stanions would beat Lipinets right now. Clayton? That’s a ?. He’s someone to really watch.
