Spadafora Dominates Dirty Toledo, Minto Wins By TKO

By Bill Emes

Mountaineer Casino Racetrack and Resort, Chester, West Virginia - Junior welterweight contender Paul Spadafora (46-0-1, 19KOs) won an easy eight round unanimous decision over Ecuadorian veteran Humerto Toledo (41-8, 25KOs). It was Spadafora's first fight since November 2010. The scores were 80-72, 79-73 and 80-72.

Toledo was outboxed from the very start. Spadafora did a lot of work to the body and broke Toledo down slowly. The fighter from Ecuador was tired and very frustrated and even threw a kick at Spadafora in the fifth round and received a warning. Later in the contest he threatened to kick Spadafora again. Toledo's mouthpiece went flying out of his mouth at least twice in the contest.

Spadafora is looking to stay busy and wants to return to the ring very soon.

Heavyweight Brian Minto (37-5, 24KOs) survived a huge first round shot that saw him get staggered and hold on until the bell. He was eventually able to break down Mike Sheppard (20-14-1, 9KOs) with several well placed bodyshots to score several knockdowns and secure a TKO win with a huge right hand to the head of Sheppard at 2:22 of the fourth. Minto wins the NABA United States title.

Dante Moore (8-0-2, 4KOs) came from behind to win a six round unanimous decision over Mustafah Johnson (8-14-1, 2KOs). The scores were 60-54, 59-55, 58-56.

Welterweight Billy Hutchinson (4-1-2, 2KOs) won a four round unanimous decision over Clifford Gregory (1-10-4). Hutchinson, who suffered a bad cut over his eye in the first round, won by scores of 40-36, 39-37 and 40-36.

Heavyweight prospect Daniel Martz (6-0, 5KOs) stopped Justin Novaria (1-9, 1KOs) in the first round. Martz knocked him down three times, with the third coming from a bodyshot. The fight was stopped at 2:15.

Brian Minto is a club fighter someone a contender can beat on for an easy win. Minto has to have a 8-5 day job. Boxing is a sideline for the Barney Rubble of boxing.

They should call Minto "the freshmaker". Get it?
