Moscow, Russia

Results: Denis Lebedev UD-12 James Toney, Alexander Bakhtin UD-10 Luis Melendez, Ismayl Sillakh TKO-4 Ali Ismailov.

Analysis: Lebedev completely trounced Toney in this one, a totally one-sided shutout where Toney didn't even have a mild argument for winning any of the rounds. The win isn't much for Lebedev; neither was his lame win over Roy Jones Jr earlier this year. Lebedev needs to start fighting guys his own age again. Beating up old, washed-up Americans might excite him and his small-time team, but it does nothing for his standing in the sport. The other two fights weren't much closer.

Bangkok, Thailand

Results: Suriyan Sor Rungvisai UD-12 Nobuo Nashiro.

Analysis: Sor Rungvisai (20-4-1, 7 KO) legitimizes himself further at 115 pounds, defending his WBC title with a win over Nashiro (15-4-1, 9 KO). Nashiro, 30, is just 2-3-1 in his last six, but the losses are this one, Tomas Rojas, and Hugo Cazares, and the draw was against Cazares, too. These are all still top fighters in the division. Sor Rungvisai could wind up rematching Rojas in his next fight, or relatively soon, if Rojas wins tonight in Mexico.

Indio, California

Results: Sergio Mora TKO-7 Jose Flores.

Analysis: Mora (23-2-2, 7 KO) is still plugging away. It's hard to figure what, exactly, he envisions for his future. He's 30, he's basically forfeited his chances of being a star fighter with his negative style (and that "Contender" business was a long time ago now), and he doesn't appear to want to be a gatekeeper. Maybe he'll just rock Solo Boxeo Tecate main events like this one forever.

Other Results: Manny Siaca UD-10 George Rivera, Jose A. Gonzalez UD-10 Fernando Trejo, Leonard Bundu UD-12 Daniele Petrucci.
