Showtime Results: Danny Roman Tops Ricardo Espinoza In Tough Ten Rounder

By: Sean Crose Danny Roman put his 28-3-1 record on the line against the 25-3 Ricardo Espinoza in a scheduled 10 round super bantamweight affair Saturday at Carson's Dignity Health Sports Park. Espinoza had last been seen in the ring in August when he scored a UD win over Brandon Valdes. The popular Roman, on the other hand, had last been seen in September, when he bested Juan Carlos Payano via a UD win. Both men threw heavy leather in the first. Espinoza pressed forward in the second while Roman counterpunched effectively. Things remained close and fast paced in the third. The fourth showcased just what a close fight it was, as both men fought aggressively. Roman looked to be the smarter fighter, but Espinoza seemed to throw the harder punches. The fifth was a battle for controlling the range, as Espinoza attached and and Roman fought to keep his man off his game. Espinoza looked to want to pick his shots in the sixth. The seventh, like most of the fight, was fast paced and heated. Roman, however, managed to fit in a nice bit of sharp shooting. As aggressive and game as he was, Espinoza appeared by the eighth to be falling victim to Roman's counter punching. The ring doctor took a look at Espinoza before the ninth, but allowed him to fight on. By this point, however, it looked like Espinoza was taking a real beating, no matter how game he was (and he was incredibly game). The fight remained fast paced even in the tenth and final round, with Espinoza pushing forward and Roman counter punching crisply. By scores of 97-93, 98-92, and 98-92, Roman walked away with the win. The post Showtime Results: Danny Roman Tops Ricardo Espinoza In Tough Ten Rounder appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.

Brandon Figueroa Knocks Out Luis Nery In The Seventh

By: Sean Crose The 31-0 Luis Nery put more than his record on the line Saturday night as he faced the 21-0-1 Brandon Figueroa in a scheduled 12 rounder for WBC and WBA super bantamweight titles. The 26 year old Nery won his WBC strap in his previous fight, in which he had bested Aaron Alameda via unanimous decision. Figueroa had won his WBA title by stopping Damien Vazquez the previous September. Saturday's bout was held at Carson California's Dignity Health Sports Park and was the main event of a card broadcast live on Showtime. Both men fought aggressively in the opening round. Nery appeared to land well in the final minute of the chapter. Figueroa seemed to lunge forward with his shots a bit in the second. Each fighter slugged away in close during the third. Nery was able to put his punches together well. Both men fought very well in the fourth. Nery made it a point to fight more defensively in the fifth. Landing more effectively than his opponent in the sixth, Nery appeared to take the round. Figueroa landed well in the seventh. Then - suddenly - Nery went down. And was counted out.
