Wilson Upsets Braulio Santos: Charlo, Arnett Win

By Ernest Gabion

At the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida - Golden Boy Propmotions brought you some of their young prospects who we might see on the bigger stages in the near future.

The main event pitted one time exciting prospect Derrick Wilson who decided to go back to his original trainer Darryl Willis against Puerto Rican prospect Braulio Santos who when we last saw him dispatched Kevin Hoskins in one scintillating round.

The action was brisk from the opening bell as both wanted to establish their selves as the superior fighter. It was an exciting, sometimes foul filled affair that saw both fighters having their moments, Santos early on with a body attach that saw Wilson hurt and Wilson coming on in the mid rounds with faster hands and the more telling shots.  Santos' vaunted power dissipated over the stretch of the fight giving Wilson the confidence he need to let his hands go taking rounds in the process. After a series of what looked like low blows thrown by Santos, Wilson gets warned for his own low blow in the 6th.

There was a questionable knock down in the 9th by Wilson where it looked like more slip than punch.  However, that would not have affected the outcome of the fight had it been ruled correctly as Wilson would pull the upset winning a unanimous decision by scores of 96-93 twice and 95-94.

Wilson improves to 10-4-2 (3KOs) and now with some stability in his corner maybe can get back into the prospect picture again.

Santos drops to 10-1 (9KOs) and now must take a longer path if he is to establish himself as a prospect to be reckoned with.

Making your professional debut against the more touted prospect in Justin De Loach might not be the best way to enter professional boxing but when your nickname is Loose Screws what do you expect from Jonathan Olivera? The wild swinging Olivera was simply no match for De Loach as a body shot ends the action at 1:40.  De Loach improves to 3-0 (2KOs) while Olivera is unsuccessful in his professional debut

Up next junior middleweight prospect, Jermall Charlo, the less experienced brother between he and junior middleweight contender Jermell Charlo, showed exactly why quite a few people in boxing believe he has as much upside as his brother.  It took a short two rounds for Charlo to dispatch of veteran Luis Hernandez overwhelming him with series of power punches culminating in a right hand forcing referee Stan Burgos to stop the action. Charlo improves his spotless record to 14-0 (10KOs) while Hernandez drops to 22-6 (15KOs).

Opening the Fox Sports broadcast, Daquan Arnett made this tougher than one would expect from a touted prospect from the Al Haymon stable as he had his hands full with Miguel Zuniga.  From the opening bell Zuniga, who had only fought one time since 2007, kept the pressure up, landing constant right hands on Arnett.  The tide was seemingly turning towards Zuniga's way but that would come screeching to a halt as Arnett landed a stunning left hook flooring Zuniga and forcing his corner to stop the fight in the 5th.  Arnett improves to 11-0 (7KOs) while Zuniga drops to 13-2 (8KOs).

Sometimes your favorite fighters are not the most decorated ones with big records but something makes you pull for them. That's Derrick Wilson for me. He is slick, fast, and with excellent skills but has suffered from being brought in…

ИATAS - I had to go to Boxrec to see......guess I'll have to wait till it is uploaded to sosoboxingdotcom if they upload it to see it. They upload a lot of small boxing cards.
