Video: Bermane Stiverne, Don King Discuss Rossy Bout

By Ryan Burton

LAS VEGAS - Former champion Mickey Bey was ringside on Saturday night at the The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas.

Bey watched undefeated super welterweight prospect Jarrett Hurd handed Frank Galarza the first loss of his career with a sixth round TKO in the main event of ShoBox.

Galarza (17-1-2, 11 KOs), who was fighting for his fourth time on ShoBox and favored against the relatively unknown Hurd, became the 136th fighter to suffer his first loss on the prospect developmental series.

Hurd (17-0, 11 KOs) was the sharper, more accurate fighter from the opening bell against the largely stationary Galarza. Hurd floored Galarza with a huge right uppercut -his favorite weapon- with less than 30 seconds left in the fourth, knocking "The Brooklyn Rocky" down for the first time in his career. Galarza made it to the bell, but was clearly hurt and never recovered.

Hurd, of Accokeek, Md., blasted Galarza with another big uppercut in the sixth, forcing a clearly finished Galarza to turn his body away in defeat. Referee Russell Mora had seen enough and stepped in to stop the bout at :59.
 
In the ShoBox co-feature, blue-chip prospect Sergiy Derevyanchenko defeated Jessie Nicklow with an impressive diet of body shots and uppercuts in a dominating, third round TKO.
 
Derevyanchenko (7-0, 5 KOs) attacked Nicklow from the outset, landing an astonishing 72 percent of power punches and 56 percent of his total shots. The durable Nicklow, who took the fight on short notice, could do nothing against the former Ukrainian amateur standout. In the third, Derevyanchenko backed Nicklow (25-8-3, 8 KOs) against the ropes and unleashed a series of punishing shots against a defenseless opponent, forcing referee Jay Nady to step in and halt the contest at 2:18 of the third.

In a non-televised bout, former WBC Heavyweight World Champion Bermane Stiverne (25-2-1, 21 KOs) defeated Derric Rossy (30-11, 14 KOs) via unanimous decision (95-94, 96-93, 96-93) in his first fight since losing the title to Deontay Wilder last January.

So is King down with Haymon now? Seems like the only two King guys I know of these days (Steiverne & Imam) are PBC guys basically right now. Keeps them active if nothing else I guess.
