Standout fights

Travis Dickinson TKO6 Matty Clarkson

First off, go watch this fight. Second off, if you thought the Froch-Groves stoppage was bad, wait until you see this one. If it weren't for the stoppage, this would easily be my fight of the year so far. Six total knockdowns through five completed rounds, four for one guy and two for the other usually means it's a pretty good fight.

Clarkson's cheek starting swelling in the second round, and by the end he looked like a baseball player with an enormous wad of gum and tobacco in his mouth. I really wish we got to see how this fight would have played out, because it was incredible while it lasted. Momentum shifted so much that you never knew who would score the next knockdown. Hopefully we'll get to see a rematch of this one once the MaxiNutrition Tournament ends. For now, Dickinson improves to 17-1, 7 KO and Clarkson falls to 12-2-2, 3 KO.

Gavin Rees SD12 Gary Buckland

Their first fight was one of the best fights of the year so far. This one may not have been quite as good, but this time they got the decision right. Through eight rounds this one was dead even. It was Buckland's constant pressure against Rees's boxing skills and flashier combinations.

But in the ninth, Rees, who announced his retire prior to the fight, turned it on. These were going to be the last four rounds of his career, and he was going to go out on a high note. And that he did. Rees dominated the last four rounds, stunning Buckland multiple times. Somehow, there was still drama during the decision, as one judge managed to see the fight for Buckland. But luckily the other two got it right, and the very likable Rees got his very last victory. The former 140 lb. WBA champ retires with a record of 38-4-1, 18 KO, while Buckland drops to 28-4, 9 KO.

Edwin Solis TKO6 Yuri Trogiyanov

Former world champion kickboxer Trogiyanov made his debut against late notice opponent Solis, and it didn't go quite as was planned. Solis came in with a record of 5-2-3, but it is a very misleading one. In his last fight, he was robbed in a draw against undefeated prospect Gabino Saenz. He also owns a draw with a good fighter in Gabriel Tolmajyan, and a draw with another undefeated prospect.

His two losses were close decisions to undefeated prospects. So the choice of opponent, as well as the fight being scheduled for six rather than four rounds, show that expectations were quite high for Trogiyanov. But Solis was just too good. After a solid opening minute for Yuri, Solis battered him around the ring for the remainder of the round. Not much changed throughout the rest of the fight. To Trogiyanov's credit, he hung tough the whole way, and even managed to hurt Solis a few times, but other than those few brief moments, it never looked like he had a chance to win. Solis won almost every exchange, and had Trogiyanov staggered on multiple occasions.

Finally, about a minute into the final round, Solis landed a flush three punch combo that had Trogiyanov staggering face first towards the ropes. Referee Jerry Cantu jumped in, and to Trogiyanov's credit once again, he protested the stoppage immediately, but it was the right call. Solis picks up a solid win and improves to 6-2-3, 4 KO, while Trogiyanov falls to 0-1.
