Darley Perez Defeats Mamadjonov, Chris Avalos Wins
Morongo Casino Resort & Spa, Cabazon, California - In a battle of undefeated lightweights, Darley Perez (26-0, 19KOs) won a ten round split decision over Bahodir Mamadjonov (11-1, 7KOs). The scores were 96-93 for Perez, 95-94 for Mamadjonov, and 95-94 for Perez.
Perez started well in the first but he was rocked in the second round by a big left hand from Bahodir and mostly hung on to survive. Bahodir did well in the next few rounds, but Perez was in full controlof the sixth when he rocked Bahodir with a hard combination. In the eight round, a big right uppercut put Bahodir down. Bahodir survived but couldn't do much to change the outcome of the fight in the final two rounds as Perez piled on the points.
Chris Avalos (20-2, 15KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over the previously undefeated Yenifel Vicente (23-1-2, 15KOs) in a super bantamweight bout. All three judges saw it 97-92 for Avalos.
