Domonique Dolton Stops Ramon Barajas in Opening Round

By Francisco Salazar

Fringe junior middleweight contender Domonique Dolton stopped Ramon Barajas in the opening round Friday night at the Big Punch Arena in Tijuana, Mexico.

It was Dalton’s first fight since a fifth round knockout win over Salvador Tapia on Apr. 27, which also took place in Tijuana.

A barrage of punches stunned Barajas about midway through the round. Dolton followed Barajas closed the distance between the two fighters as Barajas backed up against the ropes.


Dolton threw a few combinations to the head, prompting the fight to be stopped, even though Barajas did not look visibly hurt. Time of the questionable stoppage was 1:59.

The 29-year-old Dolton, who resides in Detroit, improves to 21-2-1, 12 knockouts. Dolton’s two defeats as a pro have come against Justin DeLoach in 2016 and Jamontay Clark in September of 2017.

Barajas, a resident of Tepic, Nayarit, Mexico, falls to 12-17 2 NCs, 5 KOs.

Heavyweight Amir Alsaey, who was making his pro debut, stopped Jair Amaral (0-2) in the opening round.

Alsaey dropped Amaral twice, the final time from a barrage of punches to the head. After Amaral went down for the second time, the fight was stopped at 2:53.
