ShoBox results: Adam Lopez stays undefeated, O'Shaquie Foster gets back on track

New, comments

Adam Lopez and O'Shaquie Foster scored wins tonight on ShoBox, with two other fights ending in draws.

Rosie Cohe/SHOWTIME

Super Bantamweights: Adam Lopez UD-10 Mario Munoz

A solid performance for Lopez (15-0, 7 KO), who keeps moving forward at 122 pounds. The San Antonio prospect won on scores of 97-93, 98-92, and 98-92. BLH had it 97-93 for Lopez. Munoz mostly had trouble with the sharp counter punching of Lopez, whose trainer says they want to see him in a big fight -- a world title fight -- by the end of this year. Not sure he's quite ready for that, or will be this year, but he's definitely a legitimate prospect.

Super Middleweights: Ronald Ellis D-8 Jerry Odom

This one was a majority draw, with Ellis getting one card 78-74, and the other two even at 76-76. It was a fair decision, though the 6-2 Ellis card is hard to see. But that was judge Donald Givens, who is, frankly, not very good at judging. BLH had it 77-75 for Odom (13-2-1, 12 KO). Ellis is now 12-0-1 (10 KO).

Lightweights: O'Shaquie Foster TKO-7 Lavisas Williams

Foster (10-1, 7 KO) made a disappointing ShoBox debut last November, losing to Samuel Teah. Tonight, he showed more of the promise that was ... promised. Foster, a 22-year-old prospect from Houston, did damage early, and dropped Williams (8-1-1, 3 KO) four times in the fight. This was exactly the performance Foster needed.

Super Middleweights: Christopher Brooker D-8 John Magda

This was highway robbery. Brooker (7-1-1, 5 KO) pretty clearly won this fight, but judges' scores came back 77-74 for Magda, 78-74 for Brooker, and 76-76, resulting in a split draw. Magda (11-0-1, 7 KO) won three rounds at best in this fight. BLH gave him two, for a 78-74 Brooker score. The judge who scored the fight 76-76, Donald Givens, was suspended by New Jersey years ago after the scoring of the Paul Williams-Erislandy Lara fight. The judge who scored it for Magda, James Kinney, was somehow even worse. Brooker got jobbed here. His style isn't pretty, but he outlanded Magda nearly 2-to-1, outworked him, and won at least five very clear rounds.
