Shobox Results: Pedraza, Taylor Win Big; Cepeda KO'd

By Jake Donovan

Jose Pedraza dominated every round en route to a stoppage of Tevin Farmer in eighth and final round of their Shobox main event Friday evening at the Ameristar Casino in St. Charles, Missouri.

The bout was never competitive, on paper or in reality. Pedraza had Farmer in major trouble in round three, but regrouped and continued to put rounds in the bank. 

Farmer jammed his hand and elbow in the final round, landing a left uppercut but going down to his knees in severe pain. The referee ruled it a headbutt, but luckily Pedraza's ensuing flurry was dominant enough to stop the fight and avoid any controversy.

The official time was 0:47 of round eight.

Pedraza advances to 11-0 (7KO); Farmer falls to 7-4-1 (1KO)

In the televised co-feature, Lamar Russ violently snatched the "0" from Jonathan Cepeda in the opening round of a matchup of unbeaten super middleweights. 

The bout was fought on even terms for about a minute until Russ dug in and went to work. Cepeda was hurt early and never fully recovered. A vicious knockdown had the Dominican prospect stutter-stepping around the ring, prompting the referee to stop the contest at 1:45 of round one.

Russ improves to 11-0 (7KO); Cepeda suffers his first loss as he falls to 12-1 (11KO). 

The continued comeback of former middleweight king Jermain Taylor was captured via highlights as he knocked out Raul Munoz in two rounds. 

A perfect one-two combination sent Munoz (22-16-1, 16KO) sailing under the ring ropes and flat on his back as the bout was stopped at 1:05 of round two. 

Taylor has now won three straight since returning to the ring late last year. All three comeback fights have come on the Shobox circuit as he advances to 31-4-1 (19KO).

Taylor should retire before he gets seriously hurt. Once he steps up in and fight the top fighters he'll get knocked out.

Why would they say Cepeda lost instead of Russ won???????? Cepeda was a joke. No balance, stiff as a board, lumbering, slow, pathetic really. Loved seeing his arrogant entrance get properly rewarded with a 1 round KO loss. He had…

Was not that impressed with anyone on this card. The PR kid has been hyped way too much IMO. First time he faces a strong counter puncher, he is going to struggle. He is there to be hit.
