Bogere, Wilder, Gomez, Pearson, Thurman Win in The Lou

Scottrade Center, Saint Louis, Missouri - Lightweight contender Sharif Bogere (22-0, 14 KOs) stopped Sergio Rivera (25-9-2, 16 KOs) after three rounds of action. Bogere was too sharp, too fast and too active for Rivera, who never stopped trying - but he was taking enough punishment from the much faster Bogere to make him reconsider coming out for the fourth round and the fight was stopped.

Junior middleweight prospect Eddie Gomez (8-0, 6 KOs) won a six round unanimous over David Lopez (3-8-3). The scores were 59-55 and 60-54 twice.

Heavyweight contender Deontay Wilder (21-0, 21 KOs) continued his streak of stoppage wins, by taking out Marlon Hayes (23-11, 11 KOs) in four rounds. Wilder, a 6'7 Olympic bronze medal winner, overwhelmed an overmatched Hayes, who had no answers to Wilder's boxing ability and power.

Junior middleweight Keith Thurman (16-0, 15 KOs) stopped Chris Fernandez (19-15-1, 12 KOs) in the first round. Fernandez went down twice and refused to fight on after taking a hard shot to the liver.

Middleweight prospect Christopher Pearson (3-0, 2 KOs) stopped Jeremy Wood (1-5, 1 KO) in the first after two knockdowns.

Junior welterweight Tyrone “TNT” Chatman (9-1-1, 6 KOs) won a four round unanimous decision over Marlon Smith (2-1, 1 KO). The scores were 39-37, 40-36 and 40-36.

Cruiserweight prospect Jose Ponce (3-0, 3 KOs) battered Jonathan Brown (0-2) for a first round stoppage.

Eddie Gomez did not look that great, but then again the guy he fought covered up the whole until the last minute of the last round. That Sharif dude is decent, he was fast, accurate, and he put together some…
