Chris Avalos, Finney, McCumby Win at Hawaiian Gardens

By Francisco Salazar

Super bantamweight Chris Avalos won by technical knockout in the fourth round when Jose Luis Araiza refused to continue during their scheduled 10 round bout at the C. Robert Lee Center in Hawaiian Gardens, CA.

Avalos was fighting for the first time since winning a 10 round unanimous decision over Yenifel Vicente on August 10th.

Avalos initiated a lot of the exchanges during the fight, while Araiza attempted to counter with wide counter left hooks or crosses to the head. Avalos was able to land more of the telling blows in the center of the ring.

During an exchange in the fourth round, Araiza was cut over his left eye by an accidental head butt. While the ringside physician allowed for the fight to continue, Araiza motioned to referee Dr. Lou Moret that he did not want to continue.

Under California rules, if the bout would have been stopped by the ringside physician, then the fight would have gone to the scorecards. Since Araiza did not want to continue, Moret waved the fight over at 1:42, declaring Avalos the winner.

Avalos, from Lancaster, CA, goes to 21-2, 16 KOs. Araiza, from Tecate, Baja California Norte, Mexico, falls to 32-8-1, 23 KOs.

Light heavyweight Trevor McCumby won a one-sided six round unanimous decision over Ricardo Campillo.

McCumby, who is trained by Robert Garcia, continuously landed hard hooks and crosses to the head of Campillo. Undaunted, Campillo attempted to trade with McCumby, but would get caught often, especially when he would drop his hands.

When Campillo did box, he was able to land at times, especially with right hands to the head of McCumby. However, McCumby was just a step quicker than Campillo.

The crowd got behind Campillo in the last two rounds, cheering him whenever he would land a punch. McCumby would roar back, even knocking Campillo's mouthpiece out of his mouth in the fifth and stunning Campillo at the end of the sixth round.

All three judges scored the bout in favor of McCumby, 60-54, 60-54, and 60-53.

McCumby, from Chicago, Il, goes to 10-0, 8 KOs. Campillo, from Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, Mexico, falls to 7-6-1, 5 KOs.

Junior welterweight Andrew Ruiz dropped David Castillo (3-6) three times en route to a first round stoppage victory in a scheduled four round bout. Although Castillo was game, Ruiz (5-0, 3 KOs) was too much for the shorter Castillo. The first knockdown was a double left hook to the head, while moments later, Castillo was dropped by a right-left combination to the head. Finally, Ruiz landed a right uppercut-left hook to the head. After the third knockdown, referee Dr. Lou Moret immediately stopped the bout at 2:52.

Unbeaten super welterweight Michael Finney stopped Jesus Vallejo in the first round of a scheduled six round bout. Finney (10-0, 8 KOs), who is trained by Robert Garcia, dropped Vallejo to one knee after landing a left hook to the stomach. Vallejo (5-9-1, 5 KOs) got up, but was laid out by another left hook to the body by Finney. As soon as Vallejo went down, referee Dr. Lou Moret immediately stopped the bout at 1:56.

Super featherweight Toka-Khan Clary stopped Pablo Cupul in the second round of a scheduled four round bout. The southpaw Clary (4-0 1NC, 3 KOs) dropped Cupul with a counter left hook to the canvas. While Cupul (2-11, 2 KOs) got up and fought back, Clary repeatedly landed hard right hooks or counter left hands. Clary had his ways in the second round, eventually hurting Cupul again with a vicious left hand. That prompted referee Jack Reiss to immediately step in and stop the bout at 2:15.

Lightweight Erick DeLeon (2-0, 1 KO) won a four round unanimous decision over Paul Velarde (3-3-3). All three judges scored the bout 40-36 in favor of DeLeon.
