Washington Decisions Eddie Chambers: Benavidez, Gausha Win

By Francisco Salazar

StubHub Center, Carson, California - Heavyweight prospect Gerald Washington (17-0-1, 11KOs) won an eight round unanimous decision over veteran Eddie Chambers (42-5, 23KOs). The action was lacking, with the much bigger Washington choosing to stay on the outside and box, while Chambers was too short, not active enough and not a big enough puncher to do any damage. The scores were 80-72 (2x) 79-73.

Light heavyweight prospect David Benavidez (14-0, 13KOs) demolished Phillip Jackson (16-3) in two rounds. Jackson was hurt several times in the first and then face-planted with a huge combination in the second round.

Unbeaten junior middleweight and 2012 U.S. Olympian Terrell Gausha stopped Orlando Lora after the seventh round. After a few rounds, Gausha (18-0, 9 KOs) began letting his hands go, scoring often on the slower Lora. Anytime Lora mounted any offense, Gausha easily countered him to the head, particularly with left hooks. Lora (31-7-2, 19 KOs) had to deal with Gausha's quicker hands and a cut over his left eye, which likely prompted his corner to tell referee Zac Young to stop the fight after the seventh round.

In a competitive back-and-forth slugfest, lightweights Adan Mares and Jesus Aguinaga (4-3-1) fought to a draw over six rounds. Mares (14-1-3, 3 KOs), who is the younger brother of Abner, seemed to tire as the bout progressed into the second half of the fight. Both fighters were cut over their eyes, with Mares looking the worse for wear. All three judges scored the bout 57-57.

Junior welterweight Luis Bello (7-4, 3 KOs) scored a first round knockout over Darryol Humphrey. The fight was stopped at 2:59 as Humphrey (2-5) was dropped for the second and final time.

Welterweight Anthony Flores (11-0, 7 KOs) won a six round unanimous decision over Carson Jones. Flores dropped Jones (12-5, 6 KOs) in the second round. All three judges scored the bout in favor of Flores, 60-53, 60-53, and 59-54.

In the opening bout, Manny Robles (10-0, 4 KOs) decisioned Rafael Reyes over six rounds. Reyes (7-7, 6 KOs) was deducted a point for a low blow during the bout. All three judges scored the bout in favor of Robles, 59-54, 59-54, and 60-53.

A little over a year ago Chambers said he 'would beat Anthony Joshua with one armed tied behind his back'... literally. :lol1:

Washington and Chambers are nothing but FLOPS! Hopefully neither of these guys will ever be allowed on TV ever again.
