Las Vegas, Nevada

  • Lamont Peterson KO-12 Victor Cayo: Peterson cements his status as a junior welterweight contender, and pleases many who hate seeing fights left up to the judges. Most scoring had Peterson well ahead by the time of knockout late in the final round, and he was easily winning that round. I'd have had him a 118-110 winner had the fight lasted a few more seconds, but instead he took Cayo out in impressive fashion. But none of that is meant to shame Cayo, who simply needs some fine-tuning. He's already got heart, guts, and workrate, and though he's lost his two steps up by knockout, he lost them by knockout because he was there to fight. Peterson is now Amir Khan's mandatory for the IBF belt, and Khan is planning to fight once more at 140 pounds, but we'll see if that actually happens. [Full Recap]
  • Yordanis Despaigne DQ-5 Edison Miranda: Miranda looks pretty well finished as even a hopeful legit contender, as Despaigne was able to outbox him pretty easily, and hurt him a couple of times, too. But he's still able to make for good fights, and should be a Friday Night Fights staple from here on out. His reputation as a dirty fighter came into play here, as he was disqualified on low blows, but really I do think referee Vic Drakulich was a bit aggressive here. Miranda had two point deductions, but the first one was off of a pure flop by Despaigne. Drakulich was basically pointed into a corner here, but at the same time Miranda could have also stopped hitting Despaigne in the balls. So I can't really get too hot at Drakulich, either. [Full Recap]
  • Sergey Kovalev KO-2 Douglas Otieno: Kovalev (16-0, 14 KO) is a Russian light heavyweight who now lives in North Carolina. He's got a couple decent wins for a prospect, and is ready to step up another level. Hopefully we'll see him on TV sometime.
  • Badou Jack TKO-2 Timothy Hall Jr: Jack (7-0, 6 KO) is a Swedish super middleweight prospect and one to watch. He's an aggressive offensive fighter and though he's fought light so far, moving his base of operations to the United States should get him going a little more. I think DiBella has a nice prospect here, and Jack also has very cool, stylish trunks.
  • Rances Barthelemy UD-8 Gerardo Robles: Cuban super featherweight Barthelemy (13-0, 10 KO) still hasn't stepped up in competition, but he keeps winning. He's also become a regular at the Cosmopolitan.

Las Vegas, Nevada

  • Beibut Shumenov TKO-9 Danny Santiago: Easy win for Shumenov, who retains his WBA light heavyweight belt. It was a lousy matchup that the WBA should be ashamed of, but they aren't. I haven't asked or anything, I just know they aren't. They ranked him 15th to begin with, for whatever reason.
  • Ravshan Hudaynazarov UD-10 Hector Munoz: Hudaynazarov is now 15-0 (12), and a decent welterweight prospect.
  • Gayrat Ahmedov UD-8 Billy Bailey: Ahmedov (17-0-1, 11 KO) is a standard tagalong on Shumenov cards, sort of like Beibut's version of Alexander Ustinov or Johnathon Banks.
  • Lonnie Smith RTD-3 Eduardo Arcos: Smith improves to 14-2-2 (10 KO), and the 24-year-old super featherweight might be worth keeping in mind. He had an exciting win over David Rodela in April on Solo Boxeo Tecate. He might not turn into a world stage player, but he's fun and could become a TV regular.

Homebush, Australia

  • Billy Dib UD-12 Jorge Lacierva: This win gives Dib (32-1, 19 KO) the vacant IBF featherweight title, which is nice and all, but, well, y'know. He says he wants to unify with Chris John.
  • Zac Awad SD-12 Junior Talipeau, Paul Fleming TKO-2 Quinton Donohue

Tuxtla Gutierrez, Mexico

  • Ana Maria Torres UD-10 Jackie Nava: Last time the scores were 95-95 across the board, this time 96-94 for Torres on all three cards. I haven't seen the fight yet, but reports are that this was another great fight between the two, with a wild crowd.

Jakarta, Indonesia

  • Pornsawan Porpramook MD-12 Muhammad Rachman: Porpramook (23-3-1, 16 KO) is now the WBA titlist at 105 pounds, beating Rachman (64-11-5, 33 KO) on scores of 115-114, 115-113, and 114-114. Rachman is planning to protest the decision.

Denver, Colorado

  • Mike Alvarado UD-10 Gabriel Martinez: Hometown win for Alvarado, who dominated the ten rounds and put Martinez down three times. Alvarado (31-0, 22 KO) is angling for a big fight, while Top Rank is angling to make him an attraction in Denver and turn that into a new boxing city. The draw was pretty good, and wasn't even papered.
  • Robert Marroquin UD-8 Jose Angel Beranza: Marroquin (20-1, 14 KO) won on wide scores but didn't win quite as easily as it might seem. He's a solid young fighter but still needs improvements if he's going to become a contender.
  • Terence Crawford TKO-2 Derrick Campos: Campos keeps on a-losin' in his role as professional opponent. Crawford is now 14-0 (11 KO).

San Jose, Costa Rica

  • Brian Magee UD-12 Jaime Barboza: Magee (35-4-1, 24 KO) picks up the interim WBA belt at 168 pounds. Just in case you've forgotten, Andre Ward holds the WBA "super" title (which was made "super" before anyone ever unified it with another belt, and it's still the only belt Ward holds), while Dimitri Sartison has recently held the regular belt, but apparently he doesn't hold that anymore. God.
  • Richard Abril UD-11 Julio Camano, Luis Ortiz TKO-3 Henry Saenz, Bryan Vazquez UD-11 Alan Herrera

Mazaltan, Mexico

  • Leo Santa Cruz TKO-11 Everth Briceno: Top prospect Santa Cruz improves to 17-0-1 (9 KO) and has become one of my favorite young fighters.

Uncasville, Connecticut

  • Mariusz Wach KO-4 Kevin McBride: This fight shouldn't have happened. McBride was grossly out of shape at 296 pounds on the scales and left on a stretcher, taken to the hospital after a massive right hand turned his lights out in the fourth round. You can see the video here, or take a look at photos here.
  • Elvin Ayala UD-10 Derrick Findley, Jose Antonio Rivera UD-8 Paul Mpendo
