Miguel Berchelt vs. Jason Sosa - LIVE Results From Carson

CARSON - Welterweight prospect Gor Yeritsyan of Armenia won a hard-fought unanimous decision over gatekeeper Shoki Sakai.

Yeritsyan, who was fighting for the second time in the United States, was the more-effective fighter during the first half of the fight, outboxing and outlanding Sakai. Sensing he was down in the fight, Sakai, who is originally from Japan and now resides in Mexico City, closed the distance, finding some success on the inside with right hands to the head.

Despite the rally by Sakai, Yeritsyan accumulated enough points to win by decision. Scores were 77-75, 79-73, and 80-72 for Yeritsyan, who improves to 12-0, 10 KOs and is trained by Freddie Roach.

Sakai drops to 23-11-2, 13 KOs and is winless in his last five bouts.

In middleweight action, Daniel Lewis defeated Alexis Gaytan (6-5, 2 KOs) of Weslaco, Texas by unanimous decision. Lewis, who represented Australia at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, was the busier and more-effective fighter of the two. Scores were 80-72, 80-72, and 79-73 for Lewis, who improves to 5-0, 3 KOs. 

In a clash of unbeaten junior welterweights, Abram Martinez stopped Ruben Rodriguez (9-1, 3 KOs) at 25 seconds of the third round. Both fighters had their moments in the opening round, but Martinez (8-0, 6 KOs) scored a flash knockdown during the minute of the second round. Despite the knockdown, Rodriguez continued to fight on, but almost went down from a right hand early in round three. Referee Edward Collantes saw enough, choosing to save Rodriguez from further punishment and waving the fight off. 

In the opening bout of the Top Rank card, junior welterweight Elvis Rodriguez (5-0-1, 5 KOs) stopped Luis Norambuena at 45 seconds of the fourth round. The southpaw Rodriguez (4-5-1) used his height and strength to impose his will on Norambuena, who did well in spots, but was countered anytime he attempted to close the distance.

A right uppercut momentarily stunned Norambuena in round three, prompting Rodriguez to fight more aggressively. Early in round four, another right uppercut hurt Norambuena in a corner. Rodriguez followed up, throwing and landing a barrage of punches that forced referee Thomas Taylor to step in and stop the fight.
