Payano Gets Off The Deck To Knock Maraon Out

South Mountain Arena, South Orange, New Jersey - In a battle of undefeated bantamweight contenders, Juan Carlos Payano (14-0, 8KOs) surived a bad cut and an early knockdown to knock Jundy Maraon (15-1-1, 12KOs) out. A clash of heads in the first round opened up a cut above the right eye of Payano. At the end of the third, Payano got caught and went down from a good shot. In the seventh, Payano landed a huge bomb that sent Maraon down for the full count.

Yenifel Vicente (25-1-2, 17KOs) stopped Jorge Diaz (17-2, 10KOs) in the fourth round to win the vacant WBC FECARBOX super bantamweight title. It was action for three rounds, with both landing good punches. In the fourth, Vicente drilled Diaz with a right hand the put him on his back. Diaz barely made it up, and then Vicente finished him against the ropes with a series of shots.

Junior middleweight prospect Anthony Gangemi (4-0, 3KOs) went the distance for the first time in his career with a four round majority decision over Anthony Prescott (1-2, 1KO). The scores were 38-38, 40-36 and 39-37 for Gangemi.

Good, entertaining show. Did anyone else notice Nonito Donaire Sr. in Maraon's corner? If Maraon's boxing technique is any indication of his trainer's abilities, he may need to consider looking for a new one--very wild, and no jab to speak…

It's the Central American title. "FECARBOX" stands for "Federacion Centroamericana de Boxeo Profesional" which is a regional organization aligned with the WBC.
