Welterweight prospect Brian Ceballo kept his undefeated record with a one-sided domination of Ramal Amanov tonight at Madison Square Garden, part of the GGG-Derevyanchenko undercard.
Ceballo (11-0, 6 KO) was clearly the superior fighter from the opening bell here, as the 25-year-old Puerto Rican from Brooklyn was too fast, too sharp, and too strong for Amanov (16-1, 5 KO), a 35-year-old fighter from Azerbaijan who came in unbeaten but without having every taken a real test in his six-year pro career.
Ceballo isn’t an A+ blue chipper or anything, but he has delivered the goods each time we’ve seen him, albeit against fairly limited opposition. This was his second fight on a Golovkin undercard at MSG, and he’s 5-0 overall on the year, with his best win coming in June over Bakhtiyar Eyubov.
It may not be long before we see Ceballo graduate to 10-round bouts. He’s just 11 fights in, but he’s doing very well at this level.
