Frankie Gomez Dominates Lanard Lane: Bey, Diaz Win

by Rick Reeno

Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Las Vegas - In his toughest test to date, Frankie Gomez (15-0, 11KOs) used activity, movement and aggression to dominate Lanard Lane (13-3, 8KOs) over ten rounds. The scores were 98-92, 100-90 and 100-90. Lane was not active enough and barely threw any punches even when Gomez would just hang back to catch a breather. They fought at a catch-weight of 143-pounds.

Super bantamweight prospect Joseph Diaz (2-0, 1KO) stopped Jose Ruiz (2-3) in the second round of action. Ruiz, who was game and swung for the fences, was dropped twice in the second from shots to the body.

Mickey Bey (19-0, 10KOs) knocked out Robert Rodriguez (7-3, 3KOs) in the third round of a lightweight fight. Bey dominated the first two rounds and then drilled Rodriguez with a left hook on the button in the second. Rodriguez made it up but then he got hit with the exact same punch, crashed to the mat, and the fight was waved off.

Super middleweight Luis Arias (2-0, 1KO) stopped Joshua Robertson (3-1, 1KO) in the second round of a one-sided beating. Arias punished Robertson until referee Jay Nady had seen enough.

Super middleweight prospect Badou Jack (12-0, 9KOs) destroyed Jonel Tapia (8-4-1, 5KOs) in the first round. Tapia was hurt by a bodyshot early in the first round and it didn't take long before he went down from another hook to the body. Tapia made it up but a series of punches put him down for the full count.

Gomez has become a boring amateur. Some of those lame rushes in and out were a joke. He is stuck between styles. Does not have the "IT" factor of a potential champ or star. At 140 or 147, he'll be…

Lane got the black beat off of him. Gomez won every round.

Gomez won that fight with his strength and size. Still needs work but could have a good future with the right handling. Also he needs to stay on the right track. Stay out of trouble and continue to learn and…

[QUOTE=hougigo;12987242]Wish this was televised... Gomez gone lose[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=hougigo;12987299]If not lose then he'll definitely have trouble. I don't think Lane is a fighter he can walk through. I could be **** wrong, but Gomez will definitely have a fight on his…

[QUOTE=HeroBando;12987270]You think so? Lane is good and very tough. Great fight with Elegele. I've seen Gomez look not so great a while back, and if that happens Lane has a good chance. But supposedly Gomez has buckled down in training.[/QUOTE]…
