On the same card Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin made a successful first defence his WBO Middleweight title with a seventh round TKO victory over Fernando Guerrero. Quillin knocked down Guerrero in round seven with a crunching right uppercut and followed up with a right hook to deck Guerrero again. The referee, then stepped in to stop the bout after1:30 of the seventh.


Daniel Jacobs 161. Brooklyn, NY, 25-1, (22 KOs), started fast against Keenan Collins, 161, Brooklyn, NY, 15-8-3 (10 KOs), with an attack to the body and head which had Collins covering up on the ropes as Jacobs battered him. Then things seemed to fall into a groove with a slower pace by both men, until Jacobs tore out of his corner at the start of the fourth round. A combination of punches had Collins down quickly. Up and shaky, Collins took a right followed by a left hook that again dropped him. He got to his feet only to be met by a determined Jacobs who smelled blood and chased him around the ring hammering him until referee Murdaugh saw enough and ended it at 2:06 of round four.


Luis Collazo, 146, Brooklyn, NY, 33-5 (17 KOs), Started a little slow but in the second round he stepped up his pace as he pressed the attack against Miguel Callist, 147, Jersey City, NJ, 27-9-1 (18 KOs), hurting him with combinations that stung to the head and hurt him in the body. Callist went down in the third when he fell into the ropes after absorbing a body punch just before the bell.


Callist was hurt on a few occasions in the fourth and when the ring doctor saw him taking too many punches in the fifth frame they signaled referee Browne to stop the fight at 1:33 of the round.



Eddie Gomez, 151, Bronx, NY, 14-0 (9 KOs), dropped Luis Hernandez, 149, San Juan, PR, 21-5 (14 KOs), in rounds one and three, and bloodied his nose in the fourth.  Hernandez was hurt by everything Gomez hit him with.  Even when they traded fairly evenly, it was Gomez who landed the cleaner punches that were more effective.  Hernandez managed to land a few telling blows but Gomez was never in trouble. 


Gomez dominated the fight to win the unanimous decision of the Judges by scores of 80-70 twice and 79-71.  Viruet refereed.


Boyd Melson, 161, Brooklyn, NY, 10-1-1, (3 KOs), outfought and out punched Edgar Perez, 161, Chicago, IL, 5-4 (3 KOs), decking him in the fifth frame with a straight left from Melson’s southpaw stance.  Up and in trouble, Perez survived an all out attempt at a knockout by “The Rainmaker” Melson.  The Judges all saw Melson as the winner, 60-53 twice and 59-54.   Murdaugh refereed.


Marcus Browne, 175, Staten Island, 3-0 (4 KOs), was all over Taneal Goyo, 174, Philadelphia, PA, 4-6-1, decking him with a right hook from his southpaw stance at end of first frame, then battering Goyco to the canvas in second round.  Goyco got up only to be hammered in his own corner prompting his team to call it off at 54 seconds of the round.  Brown refereed.


Zachary  Ochoa, 140, Brooklyn, NY, 4-0 (3 KOs),  dominated game but outclassed Calvin Smith, 135, Pritchard, AL, 2-3 (0 KOs), pumping his jab that made it hard for Smith to mount an attack.  All three Judges scored it for Ochoa, 40-36.  Viruet refereed.


Miguel Cartagena,115, Philadelphia, PA, 6-0 (4 KOs), threw too many straight punches that   Angel Carvajal, 117, Chicago, IL, could only attempt to get under, unsuccessfully.  The three Judges agreed 40-36 giving the decision to Cartagena.  Shada Murdaugh refereed.
