Teon Kennedy and Chris Martin Go to Majority Draw: Friday Night Fights Results

Teon Kennedy and Chris Martin didn't distinguish themselves as true contenders in the 122-pound division tonight on Friday Night Fights, and couldn't offer enough evidence of separation for the judges to make a call on a winner, either. With scores of 95-95, 95-95, and 97-93 for Kennedy, the two went to a majority draw in Las Vegas. Bad Left Hook scored it 95-95.

Kennedy (17-1-2, 7 KO) landed more punches, but a great many of them were largely ineffective, and some gave new meaning to the idea of "touching an opponent up." But he came on strong late, and it could be effectively argued that Martin (23-1-3, 6 KO) essentially gave the fight away by not letting his hands go enough in the latter rounds.

In the night's opening bout, Cuban junior welterweight Yordenis Ugas improved to 11-0 (5 KO) with a snoozer decision win over Texas club fighter Esteban Almaraz (10-5, 4 KO). Ugas won on scores of 80-71, 79-72, and 79-72. Bad Left Hook scored it a shutout for Ugas, who was hyped as something more exciting than the typical Cuban fighter, but that didn't prove out. In fact, Ugas was exactly the typical Cuban fighter, and since he's inexpensive and they get to say "The Cuban" 50 times when he fights, expect to have Ugas forced on you for a while.

Friday Night Fights is off next week, and returns on January 27 with a main event pitting Ruslan Provodnikov (20-1, 13 KO) against David Torres (21-2-2, 13 KO).
