WBA #1 Dorticos KOs Bryan in two

Two-time cruiserweight world champion and current WBA #1 rated cruiserweight Yuniel “Dr. KO” Dorticos (25-2, 23 KOs) scored a second round KO over Jesse Bryan (20-6-2, 16 KOs) on Saturday night at the Manual Artime Community Center Theater in Miami, Florida. The heavy-handed Dorticos dropped Bryan twice in round one, and once again in round two, after which the bout was stopped. Time was :35. It was the first time Doticos had fought in Miami since 2014. Dorticos was born in Cuba but has been a long-time resident of Miami. Dorticos has held both the IBF and WBA cruiserweight world titles.

Also on the card, WBO #4, WBA #5, IBF #10, WBC #15 super bantamweight Mike “Magic” Plania (26-1, 13 KOs) scored a first round TKO over former world title challenger Ricardo “El Matematico” Nunez (29-13, 23 KOs). Plania didn’t take long to warm up as a barrage of punches prompted the referee to halt the action at 2:41 of round 1. Plania scored a huge upset of then highly world ranked Joshua Greer in 2020.

Unbeaten WBA #13 cruiserweight Serik Musadilov (11-0, 9 KOs) remained unbeaten with a workmanlike eight round unanimous decision over veteran Shawn Miller (18-7-1, 7 KOs). All three judges had it in favor of Musadilov 80-72.

Luis Lebron (18-2-1, 10 KOs) of Puerto Rico upset unbeaten super featherweight prospect and local favorite Frank Diaz (9-1, 8 KOs) of Miami by way of Cuba by way of 7th round TKO. Lebron dropped Diaz in round 2 and again in round 7. Diaz battered Diaz with a number of punches to the head following the 7th round knockdown where the referee correctly waved the bout off at 1:53. Lebron won the WBA Fedecentro super featherweight title.

“It was another exciting night and year of fights for the fans. I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season,” said William Ramirez (WRAM Boxing).
