Radivoje "Hot Rod" Kaladjzic made a successful ShoBox debut last night, stopping Travis Peterkin in the fifth round of their light heavyweight main event.
Kalajdzic (22-1, 15 KO) was coming off of a controversial loss to prospect Marcus Browne, but his performance earned him another look on TV, and he made it count. He dropped Peterkin two times in the fifth round before it was stopped.
Ivan Baranchyk improved to 12-0 (10 KO) with a 10-round decision win over previously unbeaten Wang Zhimin (7-1, 3 KO) of China, now living in New Jersey, on scores of 99-91, 100-90, and 100-90. Ivan Golub also remained unbeaten, moving his record to 13-0 (11 KO) with a third round stoppage of James Stevenson (23-3, 16 KO).
Local favorite Trey Lippe Morrison, the son of the late Tommy Morrison, also made his ShoBox debuting, stopping Ed Latimore (13-1, 7 KO) at 2:19 of the opening round. A big local favorite in Oklahoma, Morrison remains unproven, but worth keeping an eye on. He's now 12-0 (12 KO).
