No doubt that my fists are a lot of faster than the Alvarez’s fists. I will certainly be able to dominate the majority of the rounds with my technique and speed.” Click Here For Full Report

  Team Gunn Goes 2-0 In Indiana  
Undefeated middleweight Bobby Gunn Jr. and debuting cruiserweight Henry Stewart, both of Hackensack, NJ, scored victories last Saturday at the Tyndall Armory in Indianapolis, IN.

Coming off more than a year layoff, Gunn Jr. met hardcore veteran Guy Packer. Gunn Jr., who was regularly in the gym during the layoff, was the sharper fighter. Packer, a 20 year pro that fought the likes of Cornelius Bundrage, Michael Oliveira, Dominique Dalton, J’Leon Love, Vernon Paris & Joe Greene among others, looked to use his experience against his 19-year-old foe. Gunn Jr. boxed well however, the bout was halted on multiple occasions due to issues with the ring and canvas. In the fourth and final round with Gunn Jr. hoping to close the show, there was yet another issue with the ring and the bout was sent to the scorecards early.

  Berto Stops Ortiz In 4  
Andre Berto (now 31-4, 24 KO's) survived a 2nd round knockdown to drop Victor Ortiz twice and stop him in the 4th. Ortiz won their first fight, Berto now the second. Will there be a third? Ortiz began with a more technical style this time around, cautiously waiting and countering, catching Berto with a sharp left in the 2nd that put him on the seat of his pants. Ortiz maintained control, but a perfect right uppercut in the 4th sent Ortiz down and staggering upon arrival to his feet. Berto jumped on him and quickly sent him down again. Ortiz barely made the count, but as referee Jack Reiss asked Ortiz if he wanted to continue, multiple times, Ortiz just stared blankly back with no reply. Ortiz drops to 31-6-2 with 24 KO's.

Flyweight Roman Gonzalez (44-0, 38 KO’s) was stretched to the limit by McWilliams Arroyo (16-2, 14 KO’s) in this battle for Chocolatito’s WBC World flyweight title. This was an all action fight that was way more competitive than many expected it to be. Arroyo may not be as naturally talented as Gonzalez but what he lacked in skill he made up for with heart and courage. This was not an easy fight for Gonzalez who saw his KO streak of 10 come to an end. With that said let’s make no mistake about it. Gonzalez was dominant and the unanimous decision scores of 119-108 and 130-108 speak to that. The nonstop fight was a great warm up act for the Main Event to follow.
                                                                                                                         

  K2 Promotions Off TV Undercard From Los Angeles  
By William Trillo
Super Featherweight Pedro Duran (14-0, 11 KO’s) literally beat Pedro Lopez (6-2-1,2 KO’s) into submission. After dropping Lopez twice in the previous rounds Duran claimed victory as Lopez did not answer the bell for round 5.

Lightweight Ryan Martin (14-0, 9 KO’s) came out to the late Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy” and then he proceeded to do just that on Rosbel Montoya (16-8-1, 13 KO’s) over the course of the bout. Martin dropped Montoya once in round two with a great left hook followed by a flash one-two . A left to the body did more damage a round later and that too sent Montoya down. In the end it was two straight right hands that finished the bout as the referee saw enough and waved it off at the 1:51 mark of round 5. Make no mistake about it, Ryan Martin is the goods. You can take that to the bank.

Light Flyweight Kenia Enriquez (16-1, 8 KO’s) dropped Amaris Quintana (9-3-2, 1 KO) in round one, that was a sign of what was soon to follow. Just 16 seconds into round 5 Enriquez landed a series of blows on Quintana that dropped her like a sack of potatoes. The ref brought the fight to an immediate halt.

Super Flyweight Seniesa Estrada (6-0, 1 KO) opened the show with a unanimous decision victory over Selene Lopez (3-5-3, 1 KO). Final scores read 6-54 across the board.

  Chris Algieri Tries For Barclays
Upset Again vs. Errol Spence Jr.
 
Star Boxing president and founder Joe DeGuardia has shown a unique ability of identifying young, skilled fighters and then guiding them to championship contention...and beyond.

Chris Algieri (21-2, 8 KOs), who returns to the scene of his greatest triumph when he headlines Saturday's nationally-televised Premier Boxing Champions card at Brooklyn's Barclays Center against undefeated Olympian Errol Spence, Jr. (19-0, 16 KOs), is a case in point. The Pride of Huntington vaulted from crowd-pleaser on his home turf at The Paramount to champion of the world with an upset victory of Ruslan Provodnikov for the super lightweight world title on June 14, 2014. The monumental triumph earned him a mega-fight against the legendary Manny Pacquiao later that year.
