Gennady Golovkin vs. Daniel Jacobs - LIVE Results From MSG

By Thomas Gerbasi

Madison Square Garden, New York City - In his first bout since a December 2015 loss to Billy Joe Saunders, 32-year-old middleweight contender Andy Lee returned to the ring and the win column with an eight-round unanimous decision win over Alabama's KeAndrae Leatherwood.

Scores were 80-72, 78-74 and 79-73 for Limerick's Lee.

Coming into the bout with a five-fight winning streak, Leatherwood had confidence on his side, and his quick counters only gave him more confidence against the hittable Lee. The Irishman did start heating up in the fourth with some hard straight lefts, and while he was not fighting like the Andy Lee of old, he was busier than his opponent.

Unfortunately, as the bout progressed, it settled into the pace of a sparring session, with Lee content to stay a step ahead while Leatherwood stayed in the pocket but only pushed back when pushed.

With the win, Lee improves to 35-3-1 with 24 KOs; Leatherwood falls to 19-4-1.

In a sloppy heavyweight bout, Tijuana's Matt McKinney handed Scotland's Jay Carrigan-McFarlane his first pro defeat via majority decision.

Scores were 39-37 twice and 38-38 for McKinney, now 4-2-2 with 1 KO; Carrigan-McFarlane falls to 2-1 with 2 KOs.

There were no knockdowns, and while the action was competitive it wasn?t because it was high-level or compelling. But at least they tried.

In the welterweight opener, Ukrainian prospect Serhii Bohachuk kept his perfect record intact with a third-round TKO of Miami's Yasmani Pedroso.

The Abel Sanchez-trained Bohachuk was in control from the start, with his pressure keeping Pedroso from mounting any offense. Two knockdowns in the third round ended the bout, with referee Ron Lipton waving the fight off at the 2:28 mark.

Bohachuk moves to 3-0 (3 KOs) with the win. Pedroso falls to 1-2 with 1 KO.
