Fabian Maidana Wins By Tko On Mayweather-Maidana II Undercard


By Derek Gionta from Las Vegas:

 

The Floyd Mayweather-Marcos Maidana rematch for the WBC and WBA Super Welterweight titles from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada on Showtime Pay-Per-View opened up with 8 undercard bouts.

 

Cruiserweight Andrew Tabiti (8-0, 8 KOs), of Las Vegas, kept his knockout streak alive as he stopped Caleb Grummet (4-4-1, 3 KOs), of Lake Odessa, MI in the sixth and final round of the last untelevised bout.

Tabiti out boxed Grummet from the opening bell up through the end, while Grummet did his best to smother, hold and frustrate his more athletic opponent.

 

Tabiti was very sharp in the early goings, putting together nice combinations to the head and body and landing single jabs to the head and body of the stockier built Grummet. Tabiti looked a bit frustrated in the later rounds, going for the knockout in the final round. Referee Vic Drakulich stepped in and called it off at the 2:01 mark.

 

The younger brother of Marcos Maidana, Fabian (3-0, 2 KOs), scored a one-sided TKO victory over Springfield, Illinois native Jared Teer (2-3) in the opening round in front of just a few die-hard fans in the evening’s second bout.

 

Maidana, nicknamed TNT, and just 22 years old, started quickly as he pressured his southpaw opponent. He began digging shots to the body from the get go, softening up his target. The pressure and body work opened up a right hand to the head of Teer, knocking him down for the first time. Teer made it to his feet, but soon found the canvas once again compliments of a Maidana swarm of power punches. Referee Jay Nady stopped the fight seconds after Teer made it to his feet on unsteady legs. Time of the stoppage was 2:07.
