Love, Jack, Bey, Pearson, Theaphane, Arias Get Wins
Little Creek Casino Resort, Shelton, Washington - Super middleweight contender J'Leon Love (16-0, 9KOs) debuted at his new weight and dominated veteran Lajuan Simon (23-5-2, 12KOs), who was coming off a two-year layoff. Love was outboxing Simon in every round, and then in the sixth he caught Simon with a serious of punches that sent Simon crashing to the mat. The referee quickly stopped the fight after Simon's head blasted the mat and he laid there motionless.
After a lackluster start in the first three rounds, super middleweight contender Badou Jack (16-0-1, 11KOs) came back in the sixth to drop Rogelio Medina (31-5, 25KOs) three times for a TKO. Jack was having some trouble with Medina's style, but then the Mexican fighter started fading by the fifth round and was blasted out in the sixth, with three knockdowns to force the referee's intervention to stop the fight.
In his first ring outing since the upset knockout loss to John Molina in July, Mickey Bey (19-1-1, 10KOs) returned with a devastating third round knockout of Carlos Cardenas (20-7).
Rising junior middleweight prospect Chris Pearson (13-0, 10 KOs) demolished Asacio Ferreira (14-1-1, 12 KOs) in the first round.
British welterweight Ashley Theophane (34-6-1, 10 KOs) returned after his September decision loss to Pablo Cesar Cano, and picked up an eight round split decision over Robert Osiobe (14-8-4, 6 KOs).
Super middleweight prospect Luis "Cuba" Arias (8-0, 4KOs) scored a second round TKO over Cameron Allen (5-14).
Yupp and even against a cob J'Leon Love looked very unimpressive. He looks very lethargic and mentally slow in the ring. Doesn't have that instinct or boxing acumen to sustain a successful career. He is going to be a bust.…Comment by mshap on 12-07-2013
