Alberto Melian Drills Countryman Julian Aristule in Two Rounds

This past Saturday, March 17, the "Argentinean Lomachenko," two-time Olympian Alberto "Impacto" Melian, fought for and won his first professional title in only his second professional fight.
 
Fighting at the Club Social y Deportivo Comercio in his hometown of Villa Dolores, Cordoba, Argentina, Melian (2-0, 2 KOs) captured the Argentine Super Bantamweight Championship with an eighth-round TKO over countryman Julian Aristule (32-9, 16 KOs).
 
Fighting on a show entitled "Night of the Olympians," televised live on TyC Sports and VTV Uruguay and presented by Sampson Boxing in partnership with Tello Box and JEB Boxing, Melian was down for the first time in his young career in the first round, but came back to floor Aristule in the fifth, sixth and seventh rounds before his corner threw the towel at 0:15 of the eighth.

The victory was a history-making first for the respected Argentina (FAB), as no fighter had ever taken one of their titles in just his second fight as a professional.
 
"Alberto was sensational in going eight rounds for the first time," said his promoter, Sampson Lewkowicz. "After a flash knockdown in the first, he took over and showed excellent stamina while pounding his opponent the entire fight. He will be back on May 26 and I will have a big announcement coming soon."

IN OTHER NEWS: Light-heavyweight “Dazzling” Darrel Church (6-2-1) scored a sensational knockout on March 17 at the York Hall in Bethnal Green.

The 28-year-old from Chelmsford landed a powerful right hand on opponent Rikke Askew (2-3) on the undercard of Joe Joyce’s third professional fight.

The Essex puncher stalked the South Londoner around the ring before landing the perfect punch to end the scheduled four-round light-heavyweight contest inside the opener.

The accurate straight right hit the target perfectly to send the Woolwich-born boxer crashing to the canvas. It was the third and final knockdown, as Church managed to hurt Askew with the lead backhand shortly before, quickly following up with a barrage of shots to deck the Londoner, who bravely rose to his feet before getting floored again.

Post-fight Church commented on the performance, “My first stoppage I’ve had in my career. To have a stoppage on a show like this, it couldn’t have gone any better!

“I put him down, he got back up again, I put him down again, and on the third time I caught him cold.

“I’ve been working on loads of things in the gym with Scott Massey; I’m punching harder, faster, stronger, and now I’ll be moving on to bigger and better things.”
