In the main event of the evening from the Quiet Cannon Country Club in Montebello, California top contender Serhii Bohachuk, (20-1, 20 KO’s), gave a boxing lesson to Raphael Igbokwe, (16-3, 7 KO’s), stopping him in the 6th round on a technical knockout.

In a fight that should have been stopped two rounds prior Bohachuk put on a masterful performance throwing punches from all sides using various angles to confuse his opponent. Bohachuk is beautifully awkward and a difficult fighter to catch cleanly.

Igbokwe put in a gallant performance showing that he is tough as nails but his skill level was nowhere near that of Bohachuk. Good things ahead for Bohachuk and we look forward to seeing him in the future.

Hot prospect and son of renowned referee, Ray Corona, Adrian Corona (8-0, 2 KO’s) out of Rialto, CA demolished formerly unbeaten Oxnard’s Daniel Robles (7-1-1, 5 KOs) knocking him out at 2:25 of the first round.

Corona dropped Robles early in the right with a solid right hand. Later in the round a barrage of heavy handed lefts and rights saw Robles crumble in the corner.

Corona appears to have a bright future and all of his fans who nearly brought down the house after his win can’t wait to see him fight again.

Ali Akhmedov (17-1, 13 KO’s) continued his winning ways with a technical knockout over David Zegarra (34-6, 21 KO’s). Ali overpowered the shorter, smaller Zegarra with solid combinations catching Zegarra frequently.

At the end of the third round a dejected Zegarra slumped on his stool and said he had had enough. Referee Jack Rees called the bout and the win for Akhmedov.

In this hotly contested bout two big light heavyweights pounded their way to a split draw. Rafael Simonyan (9-1-1, 8 KO’s) and Adrian Taylor (11-1-1, 4 KO’s) traded punches throughout the fight. No defensive techniques displayed just pure punching power which each fighter exacted on the other.

In the end one judge had it 79-73 for Taylor while another had it 79-74 for Simonyan. The last judge had it accurately 76-76 which ended the bout in a split draw.

In what may have been the most exciting fight of the night two ladies squared off landing solid right and left combinations to both body and head. The fight was non-stop action from beginning to end.

Yorba Linda’s Chelsey Anderson (4-0, 1 KO) demonstrated tremendous punching power dropping Austrian born, Elvina White, (5-1, 2 KO’s), with an uppercut in the first and an overhand right in the second.

However, Elvina White never quit and landed some sharp punches in the final round which shook Anderson. It was too little too late and judges had it all for Anderson 39-35.

In the opening bout of the evening, unbeaten lightweight local boy out of Maywood, CA, Eric Mondragon (4-0-1, 2 KO’s) brushed off pandemic ring rust to dominate his opponent, Braulio Avila, (3-11, 1 KO) in this four round match up.

Mondragon scored a unanimous decision by a score of 40-36 on all judges’ scorecards.
