Low Blows and headbutts took center stage in this foulfest bout between Jesse Rodriguez (16-0, 11 KOs) and Israel Gonzalez (28-4-1, 11 KOs). This one could have been fought inside a phonebooth as most of the action took place in close quarters. That probably explains the headbutt that opened up a cut over the eye of Gonzalez. Both fighters were guilty of multiple low blows but only Rodriguez was penalized for going South of The Equator. As far as the legal action in the ring, it was Rodriguez who was in control. The Southpaw is very accurate with his punches and is pretty nimble with his footwork as well. Bam as they call him will be a very tough test for any of the other Super Flyweight Champions. Final scores read 118-109, 117-110 in favor of Rodriguez while another had it even at 114-114. With the majority decision Bam retained his undefeated record as well as the WBC World Super Flyweight belt.

Ali Akhmedov (19-1, 14 KOs) pitched a shutout against Gabriel Rosado (26-16-1, 15 KOs) in this somewhat tedious 168 pound showdown. Akhmedov knew going in that Rosado was a seasoned veteran who knew how to go the distance. Rosado is a survivor but tonight that did not equate to anything close to exciting. One only need to look at the scores of 100-90 across the board to understand this was far from a memorable boxing match. Akhmedov retained the IBF North American Super Middleweight & WBC Silver Super Middleweight titles for his efforts.

The battle between Southpaw Austin Williams (12-0, 9 KOs) and Orthodox Kieron Conway (18-3-1, 4 KOs) was a chess match for a good portion of the fight. And lets be honest, no one ever said watching a chess match was exciting. But halfway through round nine Williams launches a quirky uppercut that landed flush on Conways beak. That punched dropped Conway and most likely broke his nose. The blood flow was nonstop for the remainder of the fight. The fight went the distance and after ten rounds judges scored it 96-93 and 97-92 twice, all in favor of Williams who took home the vacant WBA International Middleweight title.
