Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City, NJ- (HBO) Adrien Broner (25-0, 21 KOs) TKO 8 Antonio DeMarco (28-3, 21 KOs) (WBC 135 lb. title) Broner illustrates his talents against tough now ex-champ. Simply the best at 135 and quite possibly 140 lbs. as well!
Jonathan Banks (28-1-1, 18 KOs) TKO 2 Seth Mitchell (25-0-1, 19 KOs). Three knockdowns prompt referee Eddie Cotton to halt matters! Banks shocks many!
Sports Arena, Los Angeles, CA- (Wealth TV) Brian Viloria (32-3, 19 KOs) TKO 10 Hernan Marquez (34-3, 25 KOs) (WBO 112 lb. title) The return of boxing to the great L.A. Sports Arena was a disappointment to the Mexican fans. Still, Marquez had his moments, even with his being dropped by 2000 US Olympian Viloria in an opening round that came to a close with Hernan on “queer street.” Mexican mauler was decked again in rounds five and ten.
MEXICAN BEATEN BY NICARAGUA’S UNBEATEN ROMAN!
Roman Gonzalez (34-0, 28 KOs) UD 12 Juan Estrada (22-2, 18 KOs) (WBA 108 lb. title) match featured lots of “toe to toe” warring between rivals Mexico and Nicaragua. Good fight, but Nicaragua set the tone as I can’t remember the two-top featured Mexican fighters losing on a Los Angeles, CA card.
FROCH SOLIDIFIES BEING #2 AT SUPER MIDDLE!
Nottingham, England- (Fight Now TV) Carl Froch (30-2, 22 KOs) KO 3 Yusaf Mack (31-5-2, 17 KOs) (IBF 168 lb. title) Second best at 168, Froch, as good as he is cannot carry Andre Ward’s gym bag. Until Ward goes to 175, Froch is #2!
Tony Bellew (19-1, 12 KOs) vs. Roberto Bolonti (30-2, 19 KOs). Bolonti down in first and third round. Bellew was cut twice in the match. Scores were 120-106 twice and 119-109.

UIC Pavilion, Chicago, IL- Andrzej Fonfara (23-2, 13 KOs) TKO 7 Tommy Karpency (21-4-1, 14 KOs)
Magdeburg, Germany- Francesco Pianeta (28-0-1, 15 KOs) TKO 1 Nelson Dominguez (14-2-1, 7 KOs). As predicted, a walk in the park for victor!
IT AIN’T BRAGGING WHEN YOU’RE TELLING THE TRUTH!
And yet another unbeaten weekend for yours truly!
