Quick n' Dirty: Saturday winners


Arthur Abraham beat the hell out of Edison Miranda in the fourth round, knocking him down three times before the referee stepped in. Abraham-Pavlik now has to be considered a no-doubter among boxing's most desired fights.

Raul Marquez upset Giovanni Lorenzo via unanimous decision, 114-113 across the board. Lorenzo had a point deducted for a blatant headbutt in the 10th, or it would've been a draw. Which would've been a joke. Marquez took Lorenzo to school.


Andre Berto overwhelmed Miki Rodriguez in seven rounds, knocking him down twice. Laurence Cole stopped it shortly after the second knockdown of the round. Berto is the new WBC welterweight titleholder. The fact that this was a title fight speaks highly of the WBC to be sure.

Chris Arreola beat Chazz Witherspoon via third round DQ. Apparently a member of Witherspoon's corner entered the ring. I missed the fight, someone give me the scoop.


Amir Khan stopped Michael Gomez in the fifth round to improve to 18-0 with 14 knockouts.

Mikkel Kessler beat Dmitri Sartison via 12th round knockout. Kessler is 40-1 now, with his 30th knockout. Sartison is 22-1. Kessler is now the WBA super middleweight something or other. It's one of the worst belts in boxing.

We'll have much more tomorrow on tonight's big fights. How about that Arthur Abraham, though? Jeez.
