Dakota Stone Stops Christy Martin in Six Rounds

By Ernest Gabion

Staples Center, Los Angeles, California - In a special attraction, the return of Christy Martin was an entertaining one with both her and her opponent Dakota Stone going toe to toe in back and forth fashion.  Both ladies traded bombs throughout the fight with Martin being the vastly more experienced fighter and Stone being the naturally bigger one.

Martin dropped Stone in the 4th with a right hand only to have Stone come back strong.  Martin hurt her right hand in the 4th as well and it looked as if the fight would stop but she continued on only to have the fight stopped in the 6th when Martin doubled over in pain from a right she threw.  The ringside doctor advised referee David Mendoza that Martin could not continue meaning Stone wins by a technical stoppage.  Top Rank's Lee Samuels later advised that Martin indeed broke her right hand in the 4th.  Stone improves to 10-8-4 (1KO) while the hard luck Martin drops to  49-6-5 (32KOs)

Jessie Roman of nearby Santa Ana, CA absolutely crushed James Grant in the 2nd round with a solid left hook that laid Grant on his back forcing referee Raul Caiz Sr to stop the fight without a count 1:00 into the round.  Roman 20, the younger brother of fellow prospect Jose Roman now stands at 6-0 (4KOs) while Grant drops below .500 at 2-3-1 (1KO)

Oscar Andrade, a wild swinging welterweight out of Los Angeles, CA, made quick work of Japan's Kai Zama with three quick knockdowns forcing referee David Mendoza to stop the contest at 2:15 of the first round.  Andrade now moves to 6-0 (3KOs) and drops Zama to 5-4 (3KOs)

The opening bout saw Alejandro (Alex) Luna of Bellflower, CA improve his record to 6-0 but sees his knockout streak stop at 5. He grabbed a well earned decision over Cesar Garcia.  Both men traded shots openly with Luna seemingly landing the heavier shots but he was also open for a lot of Garcia's countering.  Scores of 40-36 three times improve Luna to 6-0 (5 KOs) while Garcia falls to 3-7 (1KO)
