Saturday Boxing Results: Del Valle Impresses on ShoBox, Trout Wins Big in Mexico

San Luis Potosi, Mexico

  • Austin Trout UD-12 David Lopez: Scores were wide for Trout at 119-109, 118-109 and 117-110, which makes for a really quality win for "No Doubt" over a guy who hadn't lost since 2005. Trout (23-0, 13 KO) has to be considered a real player at 154 now with this win, which is the best of his career. Lopez falls to 40-13 (23 KO) in what might have been about the only chance he's going to get, given his lack of chances before and the fact he's 33. Fightnews has a photo gallery.

Phoenix, Arizona

Liverpool, England

  • David Price TKO-2 Tom Dallas: If there was any doubt, there's not now. Price (11-0, 9 KO) is simply a class apart from Dallas (15-1, 10 KO) in the UK heavyweight prospect field. This was a British and Commonwealth eliminator, but Price will still face John McDermott next. McDermott was his originally scheduled opponent here, and hats off to Dallas for taking a hard fight on very short notice.
  • Chris Edwards SD-12 Paul Edwards: Chris (16-14-3, 4 KO) is now the British flyweight champ for a third time following a tight win over Paul (8-1, 2 KO). It's really not much of a field in the UK at 112, but hey. Scores were 115-113 twice for Chris, and 115-114 for Paul.
  • Derry Mathews KO-1 George Watson, Karl Place PTS-6 Michael Grant

New York, New York

  • Luis Orlando Del Valle UD-10 Dat Nguyen: Dominant win for Del Valle (12-0, 10 KO), who took home 99-91 scores across the board against the game but overwhelmed Nguyen (17-2, 6 KO). After the fight, promoter Lou DiBella said Del Valle would move down to 122, while Del Valle noted that Nguyen hits harder than his KO rate indicates.
  • Jonathan Gonzalez UD-10 Richard Gutierrez: Scores were 99-91, 98-92 and 98-92 to give Gonzalez (14-0, 13 KO) the first non-stoppage win of his young career. Gatekeeper Gutierrez drops to 26-7-1 (16 KO).

Cebu City, Philippines

  • Rey Bautista TD-7 Heriberto Ruiz: Fairly controversial outcome, as Bautista (31-2, 23 KO) won a technical decision on scores of 69-65, 68-65 and 68-65 when a doctor determined he had too many bad cuts to continue. Some at the fight booed, apparently, and many felt Ruiz (46-11-2, 28 KO) had won.
  • Edrin Dapudong TKO-4 Benja Loemoli: Second straight win for Dapudong (22-3, 13 KO) following his mild upset loss to Wilbert Uicab last year.
  • Jason Pagara KO-4 Juan Carlos Gallegos: Pagara, 18, improves to 27-1 (16 KO).

Buenos Aires, Argentina

  • Omar Narvaez UD-12 William Urina: Oh look. Narvaez wins again. He's now 35-0-2 (19 KO).

Hamburg, Germany

  • Alexander Alexeev TKO-2 Damian Norris
