Young prospects look fierce against opposition; Ruiz wins decision


By: Mike Sloan ringside in Las Vegas: Mikael Zewski picked apart John Ryan Grimaldo and eventually knocked him out in their welterweight encounter inside at the MGM Grand today. Zewski used a nice jab and slick counters to gain the upper hand and when he cracked Grimaldo early in the third with a staggering right hand, he closed the show. A flurry of punches forced the Fort Collins, CO fighter to his knees where he was counted out by referee Joe Cortez officially at :59 of the frame. Zewski, from Trois-Rivieres, Canada, remains unbeaten; his record stands at 15-0 with 11 KOs. Grimaldo dipped to 8-2 with 5 KOs.

Oxnard’s Andrew Ruiz (2-0, 1 KO) won a unanimous decision over local fighter Taylor Larson (0-3-1) in a welterweight bout. Ruiz was dominant from the start and coasted to a fairly easy four round victory; he won by scores of 39-36 (twice) and 40-35.


In the opening bout of the afternoon, young middleweight prospect Jesse Hart clobbered opponent Manuel Eastman in just 33 seconds to make his pro debut a successful one. Hart, a Philadelphian and the son of former fighter Eugene “Cyclone” Hart, swarmed his foe from the opening bell and tore into Eastman until Joe Cortez stopped it. Eastman, from Albuquerque, fell to 0-2.
