Diego Magdaleno Decisions Perez, Retains NABF Belt

By Rick Reeno

Texas Station Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada - Diego Magdaleno (20-0, 7KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over Alejandro Perez (15-3-1, 10KOs) to retain the NABF super featherweight title. The scores were 98-90, 99-90 and 98-91.
 
In the first minute of the fight, the hometown crowd was shocked when Magdaleno was dropped from an overhand right. Magdaleno recovered well and made every possible attempt to win the round by using effective aggression. In the second round, referee Robert Byrd took a point away from Perez for repeated low blows, and the point deduction evened things up from a scorecard perspective. In the fourth, a bad cut opened up above the right eye of Perez.

During the fifth round, Magdaleno stunned Perez with a combination. He followed-up for a brief moment as Perez recovered quickly and later landed  a good right hand. Through six, Magdaleno was winning the fight by throwing more and landing more. Perez was doing his best to stay in line with the workrate. The pace of the fight slowed down by the ninth, with Magdaleno still showcasing the superior workrate.

Perez was briefly stunned in the tenth. Magdaleno immediately jumped on him, but Perez fought him off by exchanging hard punches on the inside. Magdaleno backed off for a moment. In the final minute of the fight, Magdaleno was baited back in for a inside war of punches until the final bell.

In a close super featherweight contest, Georgiy Kevlishvili (8-3, 3KOs) lost an eight round split decision to still undefeated Casey Ramos (14-0, 4KOs). The scores were 77-75 for ramos, 77-75 for Kevlishvili and 78-74 for Ramos.

Super bantamweight prospect Jesse Magdaleno (5-0, 3KOs) won a six round unanimous decision over previously undefeated Esteban Rodriguez (3-1, 1KOs). Rodriguez went down in the fifth, but Magdaleno would later lose a point for a low blow. Magdaleno scored another knockdown in the sixth. The scores were 59-51, 59-3 and 59-52.

Junior welterweight Anthony Lenk (12-1, 6KOs) had some tough moments but he outboxed the very game Fernando Rodriguez (6-4, 3KOs) for a six round majority decision. One judge had it 57-57 for the draw, and the other two had it 58-56 and 59-55 for Lenk.

Welterweight prospect Juan Herlandez (3-0, 3KOs) destroyed Guilermo Delgadillo (1-2-1, 0KOs) in the first round. Delgadillo went down the three times before referee Robert Byrd waved it off.

Top Rank's heavyweight prospect Andy Ruiz (11-0, 7KOs) beat down Vili Bloomfield (9-7-1, 4KOs) for a fourth round stoppage. Ruiz was all over Bloomfield from the opening bell and punished him with power shots to the head and body. The fight was stopped at 2:04 of the fourth.
