By Daniel Cloutier

MONTRÉAL - Christian Mbilli, a French fighter who is living in Montréal, Canada, kept his WBC super middleweight (168 pounds) Continental Americas championship Saturday night in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, with a win by unanimous decision in 10 rounds against the American Ronald Ellis, from Lynn, Massachusetts. Mbilli, who was aggressive from the beginning to the end, won by decisive scores: 100-90, 100-90 and 99-91.

“I achieved what I needed to achieve,” said Mbilli after the bout. “I really believe that I can fight now the best super middleweights in the world. My goal is to dispute eventually a world title fight.”

With this win, Mbilli stayed undefeated and improved his pro record to 19-0-0.

Just before the bout Mbilli-Ellis, Angel Perez, a fighter from Harrisburg, won by TKO after only 58 seconds of action against the French Maxime Gill (4-4-2).

Perez attacked furiously after the first bell, and the referee, who saw Gill in serious trouble, stopped the bout before the end of the first minute of action.

In the first fight of the evening, the lightweight (135 pounds) Montana Perez, from Harrisburg, scored the first win (1-0-0) in his pro boxing career, with a win over the Mexican Apolinar Lopez (4-5-0) by unanimous decision in four rounds.

Right after this fight, the Angel Perez’s brother, Antonio Perez, won by TKO in the second round over Jessie Addison (2-3-1), from Saginaw, Wisconsin.

The French Salim Larbi (22-11-3) and the Portorican Nicolas Hernandez (20-4-3), two super welterweights (154 pounds) finished their eight rounds bout with a draw.

Finally, in a female bout, the bantamweight (122 pounds) Lateesha Moth, from Harrisburg, won by unanimous decision in four rounds against Amber Swift.
