BB Kings, New York City - Boyd Melson (12-1-1) vs Gundrick King (18-10) - Boyd Melson passed, what should of been, a tough test against veteran journeyman Gundrick King.  King was having trouble catching Melson who seemed to have one of his best performances.  Melson continuously outboxed King throughout the 8 rounds using his speed and accuracy.  Melson's dominance was given proper credit by the judges.  After the final bell, the judge's scorecards read 80-72 across the board for, your winner via Unanimous Decision, Boyd Melson.

Craig McEwan (22-3-1) vs Dashon Johnson (14-13) - 6 Rounds Super Middleweight - Craig McEwan was left with a big decision - will he continue with his career.  Johnson just simply overwhelmed the once highly touted McEwan even knocking him down early in the fight.  McEwan simply could not find his stride as Johnson upped the pressure and landed some big shots throughout the fight.  After 6 rounds, the judge's scorecards read 57-57 & 58-55 x2 for you winner, via Majority Decision, Dashon Jordan.  Jordan rises to (15-13) while McEwan falls to (22-4-1).

Antoine Douglas (10-0) vs Colby Courter (4-0) - 6 Rounds Middleweight - Antoine Douglas proved why he is one of the young prospects on the East Coast by easily defeating previously undefeated Colby Courter.  Couter was game but the highly touted Douglas just seemed to be on another level scoring the more vicious punches.  Douglas left a huge welt under Courter's left eye forcing the referee to stop the action at the 1:12 mark of round 3.  Douglas moves to (11-0) while Courter drops to (4-1)

Junior Younan (1-0)  vs Travis McClaren (1-2) - 4 Rounds Super Middleweight - The blue chip prospect Junior "Sugar Boy" Younan made extremely short work of McClaren.  Very early in the round he landed a vicious right that caused McClaren's knee's to buckle which he followed with a combination causing the referee to end the fight.  Your winner via TKO, at the 0:23 mark, in the 1st round, Junior Younan who moves to (2-0).  Travis McClaren drops to (1-3).

Nueky Santelises (5-1) vs Joseliz Cepeda (5-3) - 4 Rounds Jr. Lightweight - Santelises started off strong using his height to keep Cepeda at bay. The success was short lived.  Cepeda started to get inside of the taller Santelises.  By round 3, Cepeda was landing huge flush shots at will.  This continued into the 4th and final round, but Santelises showed a tremendous chin, will, and heart.  After the final bell, the judge's scorecards read 38-38, 39-37 & 40-36 in favor of your winner via Majority Decision, Joseliz Cepeda grew to (6-3) while Santelises (5-2).

Jerry Odom (5-0) vs Eric Moon (1-3) - 4 Rounds Super Middleweight - Jerry Odom needed no time at all to dismiss his opponent Moon.  Jerry Odom used a big right hand to drop Moon 3 times en route to a 1st round TKO victory.

Daniel Gonzalez (4-0) vs Kamal Muhammad (0-2) - 4 Rounds - Daniel Gonzalez was able to make it look easy when he stepped in the ring with Kamar Muhammad.  Muhammad was game but Gonzalez was able to outwork him.  Gonzalez was much more aggressive and was landing the much harder shots.  Finally in the 3rd round the doctor saw enough, calling a halt to the action at the 2:40 mark of round 3.  Daniel Gonzalez, your victor by TKO, moves to (5-0) while Kamal Muhammad falls to (0-3).

Francy Ntetu (10-0) vs Julio Garcia (6-4) - 4 Round Super Middleweight - Canadian prospect Francy Ntetu went to work early in dominating the first round and even dropped Garcia.  Garcia beat the count but the punishment continued.  During the course of the next two rounds Garcia landed low blow after low blow.  After the 3rd low blow the referee took a point away but it wasn't until the 5th that the referee ended the fight.  Your winner via DQ at the 2:34 mark of Round 3, Francy Ntetu who moves up to (11-0) while Garcia dropped to (6-5).

I never saw anything particularly special about McEwan. Nothing against the guy, but I don't believe he ever had what it takes to beat a top tier opponent.
