Mikey Garcia, Gonzalez, Zewski Shine in New York City

By Mike Coppinger

NEW YORK, WaMu Theater, Madison Square Garden - In the final undercard bout of the evening, local lightweight Mike Brooks defeated Eduardo Ramirez over four shutout rounds. Brooks of Long Island, N.Y. improves to 6-0 with 1 KO. Ramirez falls to 6-10-1 with 3 KOs.

NABF featherweight champion Mikey Garcia (27-0, 23 KOs) stopped Juan Carlos Martinez (19-13-1, 7 KOs) in the fourth round. Martinez went down in the third, and twice more in the fourth. The ref waved it off after the third knockdown.

Flyweight Jonathan Gonzalez (6-0, 5 KOs) of Caguas, P.R. went the distance for the first time in his career, outpointing Jose Rivera (3-4-2, 0 KOs) over six uneventful rounds. Scores were 60-53 twice and 59-54 for Gonzalez.

Welterweight Tommy Rainone (16-4, 4 KOs) of Long Island, N.Y. defeated Brad Jackson (13-7-1, 7 KOs) of Denver, Colo. over six dreadful rounds. The bout was so boring, in fact, that the crowd erupted in sarcastic applause when the sixth and final round was announced. Scores were 60-54, 58 55 and 58-56 for the local fighter.

New York-ticket seller Sean Monaghan improved to 10-0, 7 KOs with an exciting fifth round stoppage of Anthony Pietrantonio (7-8, 5 KOs). The bout was a give-and-take affair as Monaghan's strong contingent cheered on the light heavyweight brawler from Long Beach, N.Y. The end came at 2:51 when Eddie Claudio stopped the bout as the bloodied Pietrantonio was taking far too much punishment. 

Undefeated Canadian welterweight Mikael Zewski improved his unbeaten mark to 11-0 with 7 KOs with a first round TKO of journeyman Keuntray Henson (4-4, 1 KO). Zewski dropped his foe with a single right hand, which Henson rose from at the count of nine. Upon beating the count, Zewski dropped his foe again, as the referee waved the contest off at 1:27 of round one.

In the opener to the untelevised portion of the Nonito Donaire-Omar Narvaez HBO card from the Theater at Madison Square Garden, Cletus Sedin (4-0, 2 KOs) defeated Jose Segura Torres (2-3-2, 1 KO) via second round TKO in a welterweight contest. The 25-year-old Brooklyn, N.Y. native dominated the opening round, before ending matters with a vicious left hook in the second. Torres beat the count, but the referee waved off the contest at 2:52.
