El Paso County Coliseum, El Paso, Texas - In a very physical rough fight with plenty of fouls to go around, Alejandro Lopez (24-2, 7KOs) won a very unpopular twelve round unanimous decision over Takalani Ndlovu (33-8, 18KOs) in an IBF super bantamweight final eliminator. The scores were 116-111 (twice) and 117-112.
An accidental clash of heads opened up cuts on both boxers in the fourth. Lopez was hurt in the sixth and lost a point for holding. Lopez had a very good eleventh and Ndlovu's left eye was swollen by the end.
Middleweight Abie Han (18-0, 12 KOs) stopped Arsenio Terrazas (9-3, 8 KOs) in the first.
Super bantamweight Claudia Gutierrez (2-2) dropped Jennifer Han (8-2-1, 1 KO) and won a four round split decision.
Junior middleweight prospect Glen Tapia (16-0, 9KOs) won an eight round unanimous decision over Dashon Johnson (13-8-3, 4KOs). The scores were 79-73 (twice) & 78-74.
Welterweight contender Brad Solomon (19-0, 7KOs) was dropped twice in the first round and the fight appeared to be on the verge of being stopped, but he survived, regrouped and fought a war with hard-puncher Yoryi Estrella (10-9-2, 7KOs) to win an eight round majority decision. The scores were 77-73 twice and 75-75.
Middleweight prospect Matt Korobov (18-0, 10KOs) won an eight round unanimous decision over Milton Nunez (24-5-1, 22KOs). All three judges scored it 80-72.
