Jose Uzcategui Decisions Maderna in One-Sided Contest

Oracle Arena, Oakland - In a non-title fight, Jose Uzcategui (28-2, 23 KOs) won a one-sided ten round unanimous decision over Ezequiel Maderna (26-5, 16 KOs). The contest took place at 172-pounds. The scores were 98-92, 100-90, 100-90.

The ring return was initially set down as the first defense for Uzcategui, who picked up the IBF interim-title when he stopped Olympian Andre Dirrell in the eight round back in March.

He was going to fight then world champion James DeGale in a mandatory fight. DeGale withdrew and the sanctioning body made Uzcategui the full champion. Then, Uzcategui was set to face mandatory challenger Caleb Plant. That fight also fell out, when Plant withdrew with an injury.

Maderna, who came in as a late replacement, won three of his last five. He was knocked out in four rounds by current IBF light heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev in June of 2016. And he lost a ten round split decision to journeyman Martin Rios in February of 2017. He's won his last two bouts by decision.

There wasn't a lot of action and the local fans booed often.

The heavy hands of Uzcategui were apparent in the very first round. He was pushing Maderna back and throwing some big combinations. After controlling the second round, Uzcategui began to do damage in the third round with big punches to the head and body.

In the fourth, Maderna landed a hard left hook - and Uzcategui took it and continued to come forward with big shots. More of the same in the sixth, with Uzcategui taking his shots and coming forward with more combinations.

Uzcategui began to steps things up in the sixth, applying more pressure and throwing hard punches. More of the same in the seventh, with Maderan shaking his right hand at one point - as if it was injured.

More of the same in the seventh and eight, with Uzcategui controlling most of the action with Maderna just not doing that much. At the start of the ninth, Uzcategui came out firing with Maderna barely doing much of anything to pose a threat. And the tenth and final round was a mirror image of the ninth.

Agree with Bradley, Bolivita hasn't hit the body as much in this fight as he usually does
