Kamegai-Silva Draw, Jorge Linares Decisions Velazquez

Memorial Auditorium, Sacramento, California - Japanese welterweight contender Yoshihiro Kamegai (21-0-1, 18KOs) and Jorge Silva (19-2-1, 15KOs) fought to a ten round majority draw. The scores were 95-95, 96-94 for Kamegai and 95-95.

Kamegai has decent combinations and shows some ability, but he has a terrible defenese and there several moments where he left himself wide open and Silva blasted him with hard shots. And there as a brief moment during the action where Kamegai was badly hurt from a combination that caught him flush. He nearly went down and held on until the bell. Kamegai controlled most of the action, but Silva was more than willing to stand his ground and trade punches. Often Silva would land the more telling blows of the round and that may have left a lasting impression with the judges.

In a tougher fight than some had expected, former champion Jorge Linares (32-3, 20KOs) secured a unanimous decision win over Hector Velazquez (52-18-3, 35KOs). The scores were 100-89, 98-91 and 97-91. Linares gets a victory after suffering back to back TKO defeats.

Valezquez made it a fight. The experienced veteran would often stay close to Linares, pin him against the ropes and let his hands go. Linares' face was swollen and bruised by end of the contest, and there was a cut above his right eye. During a few rounds in the fight, Velazquez easily took Linares' best shots flush and continued to press forward to land a few of his own. Linares would often move, let his hands go, and then move away to prevent Valezquez from countering.

Man, seeing the fight ringside must be different from what we saw. Doug Fischer said he had it 6-4 but was fine with a draw

Linares still does that look away ****. Anyhow, the guy has ability but he wont be a champion anymore. He doesnt have enough punching power and he doesnt box smart enough in the end. He puts himself in the corner…

Good too see Jorge get the win but another cut is worrying.Shame about Kamegai though very good offensive fighter but if he does get too the next level that hands down style will cost him
