NEWARK, New Jersey – Bruce “Shu Shu” Carrington’s precision, speed and power carried him to another easy victory Friday night.

The undefeated featherweight prospect from Brooklyn clearly out-pointed Chile’s Jose Argel in their six-rounder on the Shakur Stevenson-Robson Conceicao undercard at Prudential Center. The 25-year-old Carrington (5-0, 3 KOs) scored a shutout on the cards of judges Ron McNair (60-54), Robin Taylor (60-54) and Paul Wallace (60-54).

Argel often came forward and ate punches from the faster, more skillful Carrington. He proved to be durable, however, and still has been stopped just once in 14 professional fights (9-5, 3 KOs).

Argel, who began his career 8-0, has lost four of his past five fights.

Argel aggressively came after Carrington in the fourth, fifth and sixth rounds, yet often paid for it when Carrington crisply countered him with head and body shots.

Carrington continued his assault on Argel’s head and body throughout a one-sided third round.

Dali warned Argel for hitting Carrington when he called for a break with just under 1:20 to go in the second round. Carrington blasted Argel with a right uppercut and then a left to the body toward the end of the second round.

Carrington cracked Argel with a counter left hook with about 30 seconds on the clock in the opening round.

Prior to Carrington’s knockout, Pablo Valdez’s unusual boxing career continued in successful fashion.

The 39-year-old junior middleweight dropped Noe Alejandro Lopez three times, once in the third round and twice in the fourth round, en route to a knockout win. Referee Shada Murdaugh stopped their scheduled six-rounder at 2:45 of the fourth round, as soon as Lopez went down for the third time.

New York’s Valdez improved to 7-0 and produced his sixth knockout. Mexico’s Lopez (11-6-1, 4 KOs) lost by knockout or technical knockout for the third time in his past four fights.

Valdez didn’t turn pro until July 2018, when he was 35, because he spent eight years in prison, from 2010-18.

The first of an aggressive Valdez’s two fourth-round knockdowns came at almost exactly its midway point. Lopez complained that Valdez’s right hand hit him behind his head, but Murdaugh counted it as the second knockdown of their fight.

Lopez attempted to survive, but Valdez’s hard left to his body sent Lopez to one knee again. Murdaugh halted the action after the third knockdown of their fight.

Valdez’s right hand to the side of Lopez’s head sent him to the canvas with 1:04 to go in the third round. Lopez composed himself, stayed on one knee and beat Murdaugh’s count.

Valdez tried to finish him off, but Lopez survived until the end of the third round.

Valdez snuck a right hand around Lopez’s guard about 15 seconds into the second round. In the first round, Valdez had difficulty getting past Lopez’s jab as he pressed forward.

In the bout before Valdez’s victory, Jahi Tucker exhibited offensive and defensive prowess against a tough, durable Jose Luis Sanchez on his way to staying undefeated.

Tucker landed the cleaner punches regularly and slipped a lot of the aggressive Sanchez’s shots on his way to winning an eight-round unanimous decision. McNair (80-72) and Taylor (80-72) scored their fight a shutout, while Wallace (79-73) scored seven of eight rounds for Tucker, a 19-year-old welterweight prospect from Deer Park, New York.

Tucker (9-0, 5 KOs) went eight rounds for the first time in nine professional fights. He had won three of his previous four bouts by knockout or technical knockout, but Sanchez has been stopped inside the distance only once in 15 pro bouts.

In his previous appearance, Albuquerque’s Sanchez (11-3-1, 4 KOs) went the six-round distance with top prospect Xander Zayas (14-0, 10 KOs) in a junior middleweight match last September 10 at Casino Del Sol in Tucson, Arizona.

Tucker tried to close the show in the final round Friday night, but he couldn’t hurt the resilient Sanchez enough to finish him. Tucker touched Sanchez with a left to the body and followed with a left hook up top 1:10 into the eighth and final round, yet that was as close as he came to buzzing Sanchez.

Tucker nailed Sanchez with two right hands with just under 1:40 on the clock in the seventh round.

Tucker caught Sanchez with three straight right hands just after the midway mark of the sixth round. Tucker later landed a combination and slipped Sanchez’s counter shots just before the sixth round ended.

After a competitive fourth round, Tucker waved Sanchez into a neutral corner just before the halfway point of the fifth round and unloaded several right hands on him that made Sanchez step away from him.

Sanchez and Tucker traded hard shots in the center of the ring right after the hallway point of the third round. Tucker slipped a lot of Sanchez’s punches and pot-shotted him with right hands during the second round.

Tucker rocked Sanchez with a right hand in the final minute of the opening round and then knocked him off balance with a left hook several seconds later.

Before Tucker’s convincing victory, Denver’s Misael Lopez edged Puerto Rico’s Orlando Gonzalez in an entertaining, highly competitive eight-round battle between junior lightweights.

Lopez (14-1, 5 KOs, 1 NC) and Gonzalez (18-2, 11 KOs) fought at a furious pace throughout their bout and each fighter had his moments. When the final bell sounded, McNair (78-74), Taylor (79-73) and Wallace (77-75) all agreed that Lopez did enough to pull out a victory.

Gonzalez has lost two of his past three fights to Lopez and 2016 Olympic gold medalist Robeisy Ramirez (10-1, 6 KOs). Lopez, a native of Mexico, has won three straight fights since Jordan White (then 10-1) stopped him in the sixth round of their March 2021 bout.

Earlier Friday night, Floyd Diaz overcame some tense moments to remain unbeaten.

Juan Hernandez Martinez hurt Diaz twice, in the second and fifth rounds, but the 19-year-old Diaz recovered in each instance. The Bronx native dropped Martinez with a right hand in the third round and hurt him again with a right uppercut in the sixth round on his way to winning their six-round featherweight fight by unanimous decision.

McNair (58-55), Taylor (58-55) and Wallace (59-54) all scored their fight for Diaz (7-0, 2 KOs). Mexico’s Hernandez slipped to 2-2-1.

In the first fight Friday night, Chicago’s Antoine Cobb settled for another four-round draw with Las Vegas’ Jaylan Phillips.

Cobb (1-0-2, 1 KO) got off to a strong start, but he grew tired during the third and fourth rounds and allowed Phillips to get back into their competitive contest. Cobb won all four rounds on Taylor’s scorecard (40-36), but Wallace scored it 39-37 for Phillips and McNair had the action even, 38-38.

Cobb and Phillips previously fought to a four-round majority draw on the Stevenson-Oscar Valdez undercard April 30 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Two judges scored that fight even (38-38, 38-38) and one judge credited Cobb for a 39-37.
