Cowboys Dance Hall, San Antonio, Texas - In a bloody fight where both fighters suffered cuts above their left eyes, super featherweight contender Miguel Flores (19-0, 9KOs) goes the full ten round distance for the first time in his career to win a lopsided unanimous decision over Mario Briones (27-5-2, 20KOs). The scores were 98-92, 100-90, 100-90.
Flores dominated the action and punished Briones to the body and head, round after round. Briones' face was a mess. He was bloody, cut up, had bad swelling, but refused to give up under the fire of Flores' incoming combinations and gave the young prospect some much needed work and experience in the ring.
Welterweight prospect Bryan Perella (13-0, 12KOs) stopped Ramon Ayala (25-6) in two rounds. Perella toyed with him, landing at will and Ayala was unable to come out for the third round.
In the first Premier Boxing Champions televised bout of their Toe To Toe series on Fox Sports 1, light heavyweight prospect Ahmed Elbiali (14-0, 11KOs) had to work hard to gain an eight round unanimous decision over durable Andrew Hernandez (10-4-1, 2KOs).
The scores were 78-74, 77-75, 77-75.
Elbiali had a strong start in the first round, but it didn't take long for Hernandez to get going with his awkward style. The crowd stood up when Hernandez stunned Elbiali,r ocking his legs at the end of the third with a series of punches. Elbiali continued to come forward, head hunting with big punches flying from both hands. Hernandez was moving, working his jab and making the bigger puncher miss many of his shots. Hernandez slowed down the last three rounds, which allowed Elbiali to gain the edge with his non-stop power punches.
