Albert Bell upsets Andy Vences, Mayer continues to win
Super featherweight Albert Bell (15-0, 5 KOs) now holds the WBC Continental Americas super featherweight title after getting a ten-round decision over previously unbeaten Andy Vences (22-1-1, 12 KOs) of the San Jose, California native. Bell started fast, counter-punching with the faster hands of the two. The six-feet tall Bell appeared awkward and his three-inch reach seemed to offset Vences’ style in the early going. Vences pushed forward as Bell began to tire in the later rounds with Vences landing many good overhand rights late, but Bell built an early lead and protected, despite limping to the finish line.
The judges had it all 97-93 for Albert Bell.
2016 Olympian Mikaela Mayer (11-0, 4 KOs) won a tough and hard-fought bout over Lizbeth Crespo (13-5, 3 KOs) in a ten-round super featherweight bout. The judges saw the bout 98-92, 99-91, and 100-90. Mayer is close to a world title shot at the 130 lbs women’s division.
England’s Isaac Lowe (18-0-3, 6 KOs) picked up a decision over Duarn Vue (14-2-2, 4 KOs) with the scores of 97-93, 98-92, and 99-91.
Italian heavyweight and 2016 Olympian Guido Vianello (4-0, 4 KOs) picked up a second-round stoppage of Keenan Hickman (6-4-1, 2 KOs) at 2:22 of the aforementioned round.
