Chann Thonson Shines on Sho-Box
In the main event Bakhodir Jalovov (11-0, 11 KOs) kept his perfect record in tact when he scored an eighth round KO over Jack Mulowayi (11-3-1, 7 KOs). There was a lot of heated exchanges throughout the fight, but it was mainly Jack stalking all night while Jalovov kept him at bay with his jab and straight right. He did hurt Mulowayi throughout the bout, but never truly stepped on the gas to finish him. Finally in the last round he landed a left uppercut, left hook combination that put him down and out.
The co main was a bit of a snoozer, George Arias (18-0, 7 KOs) picked up a split decision victory over previously unbeaten, Alante Green (10-1-1, 7 KOs). Nothing much to note on this one, Arias stayed on his bike the entire fight and while he picked up the victory, he failed to entertain and impress.
The opening contest was the most exciting of the night and in a battle of Lightweights, Chann Thonson (11-0, 8 KOs) outshined both Heavyweight bouts. He took the undefeated title off of Tyler Tomlin (13-1, 9 KOs). Chann started out the first couple of rounds boxing beautifully and from the outside, he kept his jab and looping right hand busy. The right hand wasn’t necessarily an overhand right, but he was landing it at ease over the jab and low guard of Tomlin. Going into the third and fourth rounds Chann began to stay in the pocket a bit more and switched up his attack with body shots, hooks and a fast and sneaky right uppercut. He did have Tomlin hurt badly at the end of the fourth round and to his credit, Tomlin showed a ton of heart and continued to try and unleash when he could. Finally in the fifth round after having his way with Tomlin, the ring doctor decided the gash over his eyebrow was too severe to continue and waved the bout off, awarding Thonson with a fifth round TKO victory.
