Giovanni Mioletti Keeps Record Intact With Another Stoppage Win

By Francisco Salazar

Junior lightweight Giovanni Mioletti remained unbeaten Saturday night, breaking down Headley Scott before the fight was stopped in round seven at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington.

Mioletti (14-0, 5 knockouts) has now stopped three of his last four opponents.

It was all Mioletti from the opening bell, as the 24-year-old from Chicago landed the more-effective punches. Any offense Scott attempted to mount would be halted by a series of combinations Mioletti would land.


Scott looked discouraged as the bout progressed into the later rounds, especially in round six when a punch by Mioletti opened a cut over his right eye.

The end of the fight came a round later. Mioletti battered Scott throughout the round, prompting Scott's corner to throw in the towel at 2:27 to save their fighter from taking too much punishment.

Mioletti has so far passed the eye-test and looks like a decent prospect at 130 pounds.

Scott, who resides in Jonesboro, Georgia, suffers his first defeat as a pro, falling to 11-1 1 NC, 10 KOs.

In the co-feature, junior welterweight Marcos Cardenas scored a fourth round knockout win over Jorge Linares (4-3, 3 KOs) of nearby Edmonds.

Cardenas of Salem, Oregon, improves to 7-7-1, 3 KOs.

Featherweight Juan Gomez, 19-year-old from Yakima, Washington, notched a split-decision win over Carlos Hernandez, who was making his pro debut.

One judge scored the bout 40-36 in favor of Hernandez, while the other two judges scored the bout 39-37 for Gomez, who improves to 3-0, 2 KOs.

The fight card was promoted by longtime area promoter Brian Halquist.
