ESPN Friday Night Fights results: Thomas Williams Jr beats Cornelius White in one-round war, Rico Ramos wins

Al Bello

Thomas Williams Jr and Cornelius White wasted no time, and provided more action in less than a round than most 12-round fights you're ever going to see. In the co-feature, Rico Ramos won again with a solid performance.

Thomas Williams Jr was taking a step up in class tonight, but early on in the first round against Cornelius White, it didn't look that way. Williams floored the solid veteran early in the fight and seemed to have things well in hand when he hurt White once more and had his opponent backing up into a corner.

But as he backed up, White landed a big shot that put Williams down on the canvas, and had the unbeaten prospect looking unsteady when he got to his feet. Williams quickly recovered, though, and smashed White once again, putting him down a second time. Momentarily, it looked like White may not make it up, flopping around like a fish on land, but to his feet he rose.

He wouldn't last much longer, as White poured on the pressure with about 25 seconds remaining in the round, knowing he had the stoppage win within his sights. And it came, just prior to what would have been the bell, improving Williams' record to 16-0 (11 KO), and dropping White to 21-3 (16 KO).

In the televised co-feature, Rico Ramos improved to 23-3 (12 KO) with a wide unanimous decision win over Jonathan Arrellano (14-3-2, 3 KO). Ramos put Arrellano down twice on left hooks, but too often allowed the fight to just creep by, a nod to his more familiar style of standing around and doing nothing. Scores were 98-88, 98-89, and 98-89.
