Monday Night Boxing results: Eddie Gomez stops Steve Upsher Chambers in four

Al Bello

Eddie Gomez improved to 15-0 (10 KO) with a fourth round stoppage win over Steve Upsher Chambers on FOX Sports 1.

Junior middleweight prospect Eddie Gomez remained unbeaten with a stoppage win over Steve Upsher Chambers tonight on FOX Sports 1, as Steve Smoger stopped a one-sided fight in the fourth round to push Gomez to 15-0 with his 10th win inside the distance.

It's arguable that the stoppage came a bit too soon, as Chambers (24-3-1, 6 KO) was actually having his best round of the fight, and there was at least some concern that maybe the 20-year-old Gomez was expending too much energy and could fade in the remaining rounds. But Gomez did land a few good shots to cause Smoger to step in, and as Bernard Hopkins said on the broadcast, it's not like Smoger has a reputation for stepping in early. He may have seen (or heard) something we couldn't.

Gomez is a good-looking prospect still, a Bronx native who is thus far all offense. He never looked like he feared or really respected what may come back from the light-hitting Chambers in this fight, but there are some technical flaws there: doesn't move his head a lot, isn't defensively-minded at all. We'll see how he progresses from here. At this stage, he's been able to mostly wreck up his opponents, who are not as physically gifted as he is. In time, that will have to change, because eventually he'll fight guys he can't dominate.

The final punch stats were wildly in favor of Gomez, who landed 158 of 304 punches (52%) compared to Chambers' paltry 47 of 192 (24%).
