Yusaf Mack Decisions Otis Griffin, Ray Beltran Wins

By Miguel Rivera

At the Warner Center Marriott in Woodland Hills, California, Yusaf Mack (29-3-2, 17KOs)won a twelve round split decision over Otis Griffin (23-7-2, 9KOs) in an IBF light heavyweight eliminator. The scores were 119-108 and 116-111 for Mack, and 114-113 for Griffin. Mack worked much harder in the contest. He caught Griffin with a lot of good punches. Griffin was never in trouble until the final round, when he was dropped from a winding hook.

The fight was not a pretty one to watch. The score of 114-113 for Griffin was a mystery to those at ringside. Mack has now earned the right to challenge IBF champion Tavoris Cloud.

In the co-feature, lightweight Ray Beltran (24-4-, 16KOs) stopped Carlos Viran (10-9-4, 2KOs) in the seventh round to capture the vacant USBA title. Beltran is trained by veteran Freddie Roach.

Heavyweight Andrey Fedosov (22-2, 18KOs) came back with a win. Fedosov lost a split decision to Lance Whitaker last June. He returned with a first round knockout of Byron Polley (24-10).

Mack was winning the Johnson fight until he got brave in the 6th and final round thniking he was going to stop Johnson... Had he just boxed, he would have been fine...
