Ashley Theophane Bounces Back, Decisions Yakubu Amidu

By Ryan Burton

Sam's Town Hotel & Gambling Hall, Las Vegas, NV - In the main event of the evening former title challenger Ashley Theophane (40-7-1) got back in the win column with an unanimous decision victory over rugged veteran Yakubu Amidu (19-9-2) in their welterweight tilt. The final scores were 96-94, 97-93 and 100-90.

Theophane started out strong, out boxing Amidu the first two rounds but Amidu came back with a good third round. Theophane went back to boxing to control the fourth. Sticking and moving continues to be the name of the game in the fifth.

Amidu would follow Theophane around in the sixth and had more success by throwing to the body but Theophane still did the better work. The seventh and eighth were more of the same. The skill level difference was evident from the first bell. Amidu had moments in the ninth but like almost all the other rounds, he couldn't put enough offense together.

Even though he was down big on the cards, Amidu didn't fight with a sense of urgency in the 10th and final round. Theophane put his foot on the gas to put another round in the bank and position himself for a bigger fight.

In an exciting fight that unfortunately wasn't televised, unbeaten welterweight Maurice Lee (7-1) was upset by a very game Cameron Krael (9-12-2). The final tallies were 58-56 and 59-55 twice.

Lee started off strong in the first round but Krael landed several hard body shots in the second round and started off the third round with big uppercuts that caught Lee flush. Both men landed power shots to end the round. Lee had a better fourth round but Krael still landed several shots to the body. Lee came out with a sense of urgency and dominated the first half of the round before Krael came back to stagger Lee.

To his credit Lee came back to hurt Krael before the round ended. Lee was the aggressor in the sixth as Krael chose to move and occasionally throw a right hand. He appeared to hurt his left hand an didn't use it in the round.
