Lucas Matthysse, Jesus Soto Karass, and Jermell Charlo were winners this past Saturday night on Showtime.
This past Saturday night on Showtime, Lucas Matthysse knocked out Mike Dallas Jr in the first round, improving his record to 33-2 (31 KO) and further establishing himself as one of the elite in the 140-pound division.
Also on the card, Jesus Soto Karass (27-8-3, 17 KO) scored a bit of an upset over Selcuk Aydin (23-2, 17 KO), winning a majority decision over 10 rounds. The veteran Soto Karass likely booked himself future decent fights with this win, while it's a huge setback for Aydin, who has now lost two in a row.
Junior middleweight prospect Jermell Charlo improved to 20-0 (10 KO) with an eighth round stoppage of Harry Joe Yorgey (25-2-1, 12 KO). While a solid win for where Charlo is at, Yorgey has really been a part-time fighter at best since he was destroyed by Alfredo Angulo in 2009, fighting just three times since then, all against very marginal opposition.
