Commey stops Beltran, Saul Rodriguez stopped on undercard
IBF lightweight world champion Richard Commey (29-2, 26 KOs) scored an eighth round TKO over former WBO lightweight world champion Ray Beltran (36-9-1, 22 KOs) on Friday night before 2,795 at Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, California. Commey made his first world title defense dropping Beltran twice in the first round, then two more times with the last one in the eight round being the final one at 0:54. Despite winning, Commey got sloppy at points and was prone to get hit. A fun, action orientated fight.
Top Rank junior middleweight contender Carlos Adames (18-0, 14 KOs) retained the NABF and NABO super welterweight titles with a ten-round unanimous decision over Patrick Day (17-3-1, 6 KOs) by scores of 97-93, 97-93, and 98-91 on Friday night at Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, California.
Day started strong, but the inability to keep Adames off him made him work twice as hard compared to the power punching Adames. A very close fight.
In a major upset, Miguel Angel Gonzalez (25-4, 22 KOs) knocked out Saul Rodriguez (23-1-1, 17 KOs) at 1:23 of round three. Rodriguez was dropped in the first round and stopped in the third.
Lightweight Raymond Muratalla (8-0, 6 KOs) of Fontana, California stopped Agustine Mauras (6-6-3, 3 KOs) in one round.
A lightweight bout between Elvis Rodriguez (2-0, 2 KOs) and Joaquin Chavez (9-18-3, 2 KOs) ended prematurely when an accidental headbutt split open a ghastly cut on Chavez’s forehead and the fight was stopped at 2:28, the end result, a technical draw.
