Magdaleno, Valdez, Solomon, Saenz Win at The Forum

By Rick Reeno & Francisco Salazar

The Forum, Los Angeles, California - In a lightweight contest, Diego Magdaleno (26-1, 10KOs) won a dominating eight round unanimous decision over Oscar Bravo (21-4, 9KOs). The scores were 80-71, 80-71, 79-72. Bravo was down in the fourth from a series of head and body shots, but Magdaleno was unable to finish him off.

Mexican Olympian Oscar Valdez (11-0, 10KOs) continues his rise by pounding on Noel Echevarria (11-3, 6KOs) for six one-sided rounds. Echevarria's corner wisely decided not to et him out for the seventh round.

Welterweight Zach Wohlman (8-1-1 1KOs) won a four round unanimous decision over Eddie Cordova (4-8-1, 1KO). The scores were 40-36, 39-37, 39-37.

Welterweight Brad Solomon won an eight round unanimous over Armen Ovsepyan. Solomon (22-0, 8 KOs) was the more technical fighter, landing at will with the right hand. Solomon spent the second half of the fight waiting for Ovsepyan (14-4, 11 KOs) to initiate, which drew loud boos from the crowd because of the lack of action. All three judges scored the bout in favor of Solomon, 79-73, 79-73, and 78-74.

Super bantamweight Raul Hirales stopped Ernesto Guerrero in the third round of a scheduled eight round bout. Hirales (22-2-1, 11 KOs) dropped Guerrero with combination within the first 20 seconds of the opening round. Hirales controlled the bout and ended matters in the third round with a right hand that dropped Guerrero to the canvas. Referee Thomas Taylor waved the fight over at 2:31.

Pedro Duran (6-0, 4KOs) drilled Domonic Coca (8-8, 2KOs) in the first round with a single hard hook to the body. Coca went down for the full count.

Featherweight prospect Yuri Trogiianov (0-1) made his pro debut and took some serious punishment from the tougher and stronger Edwin Solis (6-2-3, 4KOs). After five rounds of damage, the referee had seen enough and stepped in to wave off the fight when Solis stunned Trogiianov in the sixth and final round.

A battle of super lightweights saw undefeated prospect Manuel Lopez (5-1, 4KOs) take his first loss as a pro when he struggled against Cameron Krael (5-5-2, 0KO) over four rounds. The scores were 38-38, and two cards of 39-37 for Krael.

Wish Top-Rank would roll the dice and match Magdaleno up with better opposition. Time to step it up again.
