Karim Mayfield Powers Past Herrera To Win Decision
Turning Stone Resort & Casino, Verona, New York - Karim Mayfield (17-0-1, 10KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over Mauricio Herrera (18-2, 7KOs) in an NABF super lightweight eliminator. Mayfield also retains the NABO championship. Herrera suffers his second consecutive defeat. The scores were 96-94, 98-92 and 97-93.
Mayfield was trying to impose his power early. Herrera, with his face already swelling, started a gutsy comeback in the second. In the fourth, Mayfield sustained a cut under his right eye. Mayfield's faster, harder punches were blasting Herrera round after round, but the tough California boxer continued to come forward and throw punches. Herrera had very few answers and took plenty of punishment in the second half of the fight.
