ShoBox results, photos, and quotes: Redkach beats Luis in main event, Galarza stuns Thompson

In an entertaining ShoBox card from Memphis, Ivan Redkach beat Tony Luis by wide decision scores; Frank Galarza stopped John Thompson in two rounds; Antoine Douglas routed Marquis Davis; and Maurice Hooker and Abel Ramos went to an eight-round draw.


"I won the fight clearly. I learned a lot. Tony is a true warrior. He made the fight a dirty fight and I got sucked into that game.

"I will take this as a lesson learned into my next training camp and improve on it.''


"There's always room for improvement and I didn't fight the perfect fight, but I thought this was a much, much closer fight. I felt I was hurting him, and he was getting tired. I felt I'd knocked him down in the first, but the referee didn't call it even though his gloves hit the canvas. The ref was breaking us up too soon. He wouldn't let me work.

"This is very disappointing to say the least.''


"People are going to have to think twice about me now. What they saw tonight is who I am.

"Considering this was on a national stage, it has to be one of the very best wins in my career.''

"Our game plan was to feel him out in the first and then step it up. The key was to get to him first, to not let him get off.''


"I am happy to get the win, but I'm not happy that the fight didn't play out the way I thought it would. I expected more from myself; I expected to knock him out. I know I wasn't 100 percent because I had a touch of the flu, so maybe I overestimated what I could do. Still, I expected more.''
