Willie Nelson UD-10 John Jackson

This was a very good fight. I had it 96-94 for Nelson, who had more experience and I would say the better conditioning, but Julian's boy John can fight a little and I think there's a lot to work with there for the future. Scores were 96-94, 96-94, and 98-92 for Nelson, who gets another solid win to move forward. Both of these guys could be around a while. Nelson 19-1-1 (11), Jackson 13-1 (12).

Michael Medina UD-8 James Winchester

26-year-old Medina was way too much for North Carolina clubbie "Shotgun" Winchester in this one, flooring him on uppercuts in the second and eighth rounds and dominating the fight with no problems whatsoever. Winchester was never in this thing. Scores were 80-70 across the board. You can say this: Winchester is tougher than a two dollar steak. Medina 26-3-2 (19), Winchester 15-4 (5).

Wale Omotoso UD-8 Daniel Sostre

Omotoso, 27, still didn't look great here, sort of cruising his way to victory when this is the sort of guy -- no offense to Sostre, who knows his way around the ring -- he should be smashing if he's going to turn into a real contender. He fights with a strange arrogance, and he's been matched so lightly by Top Rank that you have to be raising eyebrows about his potential at this point. I liked what I'd seen of him during his days fighting in Australia, but right now I've gone pretty low on his ceiling. Scores were 79-73, 79-73, and 80-72. Omotoso 23-0 (19), Sostre 11-7-1 (4).
