  Russell Jr. Makes Statement, Stopping Gonzalez In 4  
Gary Russell Jr. (now 26-1, 15 KO's) won the WBC Featherweight Title by stopping previous title holder Jhonny Gonzalez in just 4 rounds. A lot of questions concerning Russell's career after his loss to Lomachenko and getting a title shot so soon, and against such a dangerous fighter, but all of those were put to rest. Russell looked back in form, used his speed and along came his power, dropping Gonzalez with a right-left combination in round 3. Gonzalez would not fully recuperate and would hit the canvas twice more in the 4th, prompting referee Tony Weeks to call a halt to the bout just :37 seconds into the round. Gonzalez drops to 57-9 with 48 KO's.
                                                                                                                         
  Charlo Gets By Martirosyan In Close Fight  
Jermell Charlo (now 26-0, 11 KO's) won a unanimous decision over Vanes Martirosyan in a close affair where both had their moments. Charlo made the fight close by not sticking to what he does best, and started fighting Martirosyan's fight. Charlo would swing wildly, become off-balance and appeared looking for a knockout, which is not his usual style. That allowed Martirosyan land some effect punches throughout. The fight was a close one, but Charlo did appear to change the tempo more in his favor during the 2nd half of the fight. Final scores were 97-93 and 96-94 twice. Martirosyan drops to 35-2-1 with 21 KO's.
                                                                                                                         
  Brook Annihilates Dan In 4,
Scoring 4 Knockdowns Along The Way
 
Kell Brook (now 34-0, 23 KO's) made his long-awaited return to the ring and retained the IBF Welterweight Title by stopping Jo Jo Dan in just 4 rounds. The fight was a bit of a mismatch from the start, as it would just be Dan's awkwardness that could pose any threat. It did not. A left uppercut sent Dan down for the first time in round 2. Dan up on shaky legs would taste the canvas again following a right to the chin. Dan would hold on to survive the round, as well as in the 3rd. In the 4th, a combination put Dan down for a third time. Just as the bell sounded to end the round, a huge left connected on the side of Dan's head to send him down a fourth time. Dan did make it to his feet, but his corner wisely stopped the fight between rounds. Dan drops to 34-3 with 18 KO's. After the fight, Brook made a point to call out Amir Khan, a fight that would be huge in England.

Jo Jo Dan Believes Brook Is Taking Him Lightly
 
By Daniel Cloutier
MONTRÉAL —— The Montrealer Romanian Jo Jo dan will try to capture his first world title Saturday evening in Sheffield, England. Dan (34-2-0) will challenge the IBF welterweight champion of the world, the British Kell Brook (33-0-0), “I know I will have to get a good strategic fight, said Dan Friday. I will have to use my mobility and my speed to score points and force Brook to make mistakes. I will need to fight with intelligence and intensity. Brook has the reputation to be a dangerous puncher. However, apparently, he does not like to face a fighter who put a constant pressure on him. I really believe in my chances to capture my first world title. I am a southpaw who has the weapons to cause him problems in many situations. And the fact that Brook is talking constantly of his future big fights, pushed me to believe he is not afraid of me. If he thinks it’s just a formality, he will will have a huge surprise when the fight will start.” Click Here For Full Report

This Friday night at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, CA, Golden Boy Promotions held one of their events.

Gomez came out strong, not wasting any time. Kamegai got in some good body shots early on, but Gomez was tough and accurate. Kamegai came out more aggressively in the second, but Alfonso was still on fire. Both men took some punishment in the third, as Yoshihiro seemed to find more of the range to land on Gomez, but Alfonso was maintaining his attack.
