Patrick Day Drops, Decisions Virgilijus Stapulionis

By Francisco Salazar

Mohegan Sun, CT. - If junior middleweight Patrick Day was brought in as an opponent for Virgilijus Stapulionis to look good against Saturday night, he must have not seen that memo.

Day dropped Stapulionis once in route to a 10 round unanimous decision at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut.

With the win, Day improves to 13-2-1, with 6 KOs. Stapulionis falls to 27-4-1, 19 KOs.

The bout headlined the first in a series of fight cards presented by Main Events at the Mohegan Sun.

Stapulionis, who is originally from Lithuania and now lives and trains in Oxnard, Calif., entered the bout unbeaten in six bouts. Day was coming off a six round decision over Courtney Pennington on April 23.

All three judges scored the bout in favor of Stapulionis, 97-92, 98-91, and 99-90. 

Heavyweight Cassius Chaney (8-0, 5 KOs) won by knockout after the second round when Carlos Sandoval did not answer the bell for round three. Referee Michael Ortega stopped the bout on the recommendation of the ringside physician. Sandoval falls to 9-12-1, 6 KOs.

Junior middleweight Madiyar Ashkeyev (7-0, 3 KOs), who is trained by Robert Garcia in Oxnard, Calif., won a six round unanimous decision over Marcus Beckford (3-4-3, 1 KO). All three judges scored the bout 59-55 in favor of Ashkeyev. 

Middleweight Vaughn Alexander, the older brother of two-division world titleholder Devon Alexander, outboxed Antonio Fernandez (7-30-2, 4 KOs) over six one-sided rounds to win a decision. All three judges scored the bout 60-54 in favor of Alexander, who improves to 7-0, 5 KOs.

Junior middleweight Enriko Gogokhia (3-0, 1 KO), who is managed by Egis Klimas, won a six round split decision over Roberto Yong. One judge scored the bout 59-55 in favor of Yong (5-11-2, 4 KOs), while the other two judges scored the bout 60-54 and 59-55 for Gogokhia.

Featherweight Josh Crespo (7-4-3, 3 KOs) from nearby New Haven scored a first round knockout over Jesus Gonzalez (4-13, 3 KOs). Time of the knockout was 1:47.
