The Shaw “Spank” Redemption

By William Trillo


It was redemption time for promoter Gary Shaw as IBF bantamweight Champ Joseph Agbeko (27-1,22 KO’s) was unceremoniously dethroned by # 1 challenger Yonnhy Perez (19-0,14 KO’s) in a 12 round battle at the Las Vegas Treasure Island resort . Judges scored the fight 117-110, 117-110, 116-111, all in favor of the new Champ Perez. This had to taste extra sweet for Shaw who saw his fighter Vic Darchinyan lose earlier in the year to the same Agbeko.

The icing on the cake for Shaw came in the semi- main event as lightweight Antonio DeMarco (22-1-1,10 KO’s) TKO’d Jose Alfaro (23-4, 20 KO’s) in the 10th round. DeMarco appeared to be hurt early but weathered the storm and came back and dropped Alfaro 3 times before referee Joe Cortez stopped the fight at the 2:07 mark. With the win Demarco takes the interim WBC lightweight title.
