Martirosyan KOs Hernandez: Cote, Gaudet Win Bouts

By Chris LaBate 

Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada - Junior middleweight Vanes Martirosyan (29-0, 18KOs) returned to the ring to stop Bladimir Hernandez (18-5, 16KOs) in the second round of the contest. Vanes dropped him for the full count. Because Hernandez was overweight at Friday's weigh-in, the fight took place at the middleweight limit.

Junior welterweight prospect Pier Olivier Cote (15-0, 10KOs) crushed Michael Lozada (37-8-1, 30KOs) in one round. He put Lozada down three times in the first before the fight was waved off due to the three knockdown rule.

Super featherweight Benoit Gaudet (24-2, 10KOs) won a six round technical decision over Adrian Verdugo (14-4-1, 11KOs). The scores were 58-56, 59-55 and 59-55. A clash of heads opened up a bad cut on Gaudet, which led to an early ending.

Unbeaten featherweight prospect Viorel Simion (13-0, 5KOs) had the toughest fight of his career but he managed to win a close eight round split decision over Pedro Navarrete (25-11, 14KOs). The scores were 75-73, 76-72 for Simion and 75-74 for Navarrette. The fight had fireworks, with Simion going down twice in the second, and then Navarrete going down in the sixth - but Simion lost a point in the same round for a rabbit punch. 

Bantamweight contender Sebastien Gauthier (20-2, 13KO) knocked out Jovanny Soto-Ramirez (29-14-1, 23KOs) in the second round.

[QUOTE=AddiX;10259684]Very true, but Kessler had no snap on his shots like he use to. His punches use to be picture perfect, he just hasn't looked anything like his old self in his last 2 fights. Kessler isn't small himself either.[/QUOTE]…
