Results from Saturday afternoon are here, and results from Friday are here.

Atlantic City, New Jersey

Sergio Martinez scored the likely knockout of the year, decimating Paul Williams in the second round.  Our full report, including undercard wins by Fernando Guerrero, Zsolt Erdei and Tony Thompsonis at this link.

Thackerville, Oklahoma

Raul Martinez SD12 Rodrigo Guerrero - In another very solid fight, Martinez was able to outlast Guerrero, earning the right to face Juan Alberto "Topo" Rosas for his title.  This one wasn't too dissimilar to Stieglitz-Ornelas - in the early rounds, Martinez was mostly able to outbox Guerrero, but Guerrero just never stopped coming forward.  By the middle rounds, Martinez was getting quite marked up, and Guerrero was forcing him to stand and trade.  Finally, Martinez retook control in the last few rounds, as he started to hurt Guerrero.  

Matt Korobov UD8 Derrick Findley - Korobov, an amateur world champ many times over, has been thought of as one of the blue ship prospects in the middleweight division, but he continued to look a bit lethargic and unimpressive against Findley.  Scores were 78-74 all the way around.

Monterrey, Mexico

Alberto Garza SD12 Justin Savi - Garza wins a "silver" title, further clouding the WBC's already convoluted featherweight title picture.  This was reportedly a hard fought bout where Garza looked much worse for wear at the end of the fight, though I have yet to see anything indicating this may have been an outright robebry.  

Jhonny Gonzalez KO2 Santos Marimon - A left hook by Gonzalez early in the second round knocked Marimon out cold.  Gonzalez is staying active, fighting for the fifth time this year, and he also is somewhere in the WBC's featherweight title frame.  A fight between Garza and Gonzalez might be coming up in the future.  

Edgar Sosa UD12 Masafumi Okubo - Sosa won a wide 12-round decision in his fineal tune-up fight at flyweight. Next up, he'll reportedly be facing Pongsaklek Wonjongkam for the flyweight championship.

Uncasville, Connecticut

Paul Spadafora RTD5 Alain Hernandez - Spadafora was reportedly at junior welterweight for the first time in years for this one.  He stays unbeaten at 45-0-1, but it doesn't really bring him any closer to being a contender again.  He's now 7-0 since getting out of prison, but pretty much all of those fights have come against gatekeepers.

Matt Remillard UD8 Oscar Cuero - "Sharpshooter" outboxed Cuero to a wide decision, creeping closer to title contention.  There had been discussions of a fight between Remillard and Celestino Caballero, but Remillard and his team turned it down.

Also winning fights elsewhere: Elvir Muriqi, Ali Chebah, Will Rosinsky, Steve Upshur Chambers, Giovanni Caro, Oscar Blanquet, Martin Rogan, Patrick Hyland, Logan McGuinness, George Arias, Tomas Kovacs, Pawel Kolodziej and Michael Oliveira.
