Jose Ramirez stops Maurice Hooker in six, now holds two world titles

Jose Ramirez (25-0, 17 KOs) now holds two world titles after his sixth-round TKO of undefeated Maurice Hooker (26-1-3, 17 KOs) by devastating sixth-round TKO on Saturday night at College Park Center in Arlington, Texas, Hooker’s hometown. Ramirez knocked down Hooker in round one. Ramirez controlled the majority of the bout besides a solid round four from Hooker. Ramirez land a solid left hook on Hooker in round six that opened up a flurry of unanswered punches that saw the referee waive the bout off. The time was 1:48.

IBF super featherweight Tevin Farmer (30-4-1, 6 KOs) picked up a 12-round decision over world-ranked, but largely unknown Guillaume Frenois (46-2-1, 12 KOs). The bout was vintage Famer, not getting hit much, but also not entertaining the crowd that might be drawn to blood and guts.

The scores were 119-108, 116-111 and 116-111 for Farmer.

Super bantamweight contender Traimaine Williams (19-0, 6 KOs) defeated Yenifel Vicente (35-4-2, 27 KOs) to win the vacant NABO and USBA title. The scores were 97-91, 97-91 and 96-92.

Heavyweight Joey Dawejko (20-7-4, 11 KOs) got a hard-fought decision win over Modesto, Ca’s Rodney Hernandez (13-8-2, 4 KOs). The bout was very even and open to interpretation. The judges saw it 96-94, 96-94 and 98-92 for Dawejko.

Middleweight “White Chocolate” Nikita Ababiy (6-0, 5 KOs) outworked Yunier Calzada (6-6-1, 1 KO) to win every round en route to a six-round decision.

Super lightweight Arthur Biyarslanov (4-0, 4 KOs) stopped Solo Staley (1-4) at 1:18 of round three.

Middleweight Daruis Bagley (1-0) defeated Carlos Dixon 1-14-1, (1 KO) 39-37 on all three judges scorecards.
