Anthony and Andre Dirrell

RESULTS:

Jonathan Guzman vs. Daniel Rosas 

Jonathan Guzman stopped Daniel Rosas to improve to 21-0, 21 KOs.

Jonathan Guzman:

“I used a lot of concentration early and let him make errors early so I could see what he was planning to do. Once I saw the mistakes he was making I let my hands go.

“I wanted to let him throw some punches early. It helped me gain confidence and learn his tendencies.

“I saw him dropping that right hand, and I knew it would open up the opportunity for me to land my left. I’m glad I got the stoppage.”

Anthony Dirrell vs. Caleb Truax

Anthony Dirrell crushed Caleb Truax with a right hand in Round 1. After Truax beat the count, Dirrell finished the job with a stunning KO!

Anthony Dirrell:

“I showed tonight that I work on the gym, and it paid off. If I work like I did this time leading up to the fight, then I know nobody can beat me.

“What helped me tonight was landing my shots early. I was right on top of him with combinations and controlling my jab and that set the tone.

“I want a world title next, and I’ll fight anybody who has one. I want people to respect that I’m ready for a title and give me that shot.

“My work tonight inside the ring made a big statement for what my brother and I are doing outside of the ring. A lot of people were watching tonight, and now they know a little bit more about what’s going on with the Flint Water Crisis back home.”

Caleb Truax:

“Everything was great leading up to the fight. I don’t know what happened tonight.

“He just caught me early. I think it was an overhand right.

“I could have continued but the referee stopped the fight. I have never been down before, so I’m not used to this.

“I am very disappointed, but I will be back.”

Andre Dirrell vs. Blake Caparello

Andre Dirrell survives a second-round knockdown to defeat Blake Caparello by unanimous decision.

Anthony Young vs. Juan Rodriguez

Hometown fighter Anthony Young dominated action, scoring an early knockdown en route to a 59-54, 59-53 and 58-55 unanimous decision.

Rodriguez wasn’t without his moments, but speed discrepancy was on display.

Eddie Ramirez vs. Osumanu Akaba

Akaba was outclassed in Round 1, while Ramirez lived up to his impressive record by cutting off the ring efficiently.

In Round 2, Akaba took a knee, gesturing at his eye. The ref called a halt to the bout, giving Ramirez a TKO win at 2:33.

Titus Williams vs. DeWayne Wisdom

Williams dominant, but not all that close to a finish through two rounds. It became clear Wisdom could take Williams’ best shots in the middle rounds, and the 6-28-1 Super Featherweight started to clown.

Wisdom took a (phantom?) low blow in Round 5, taking nearly five minutes before resuming. It looked as though Wisdom may have been more hurt from a rib injury.

Wisdom took a knee twice in Round 6, beating the count both times. Williams earned a unanimous decision, but Wisdom proved to be a much tougher opponent than his record indicated.

Luther Smith vs. Solomon Maye

Smith, who fights out of the southpaw stance, was in considerably better shape than Maye. Maye was more interested in surviving than landing through two rounds, turtling up and absorbing left hands.

Maye was lethargic every second of the fight until the third round, when he inexplicably emerged as the aggressor. But it was too little, too late for Maye, as he was handed a split-decision loss.

Smith improves to 5-0, but probably should have finished an opponent of Maye’s level.

Brendan Barrett vs. Alando Pugh

Hafiz Montgomery vs. Darnell Pierce

Chris Thomas vs. Jessie Singletary

Thomas was all over Singletary, swarming his opponent with wide hooks while leaving himself open for counter shots.

Fortunately for him, Singletary wasn’t able to mount any offense in return, and a right hand from Thomas ended the fight with a minute to spare in Round 1.

Chordale Booker vs. Tolutumi Agunbiade

Agunbiade was a short notice opponent whose footwork is an absolute mess.

Booker, a southpaw who trains out of Brooklyn, earned a knockdown in Round 1, which is likely due to Agunbiade crossing his feet on every exchange.

Agunbiade tied up every now and then and landed a few decent shots, but otherwise it was all Booker. A huge left hand floored Agunbiade in Round 2, and he was unable to beat the count. Booker is off to a 2-0 start in his pro career.

Abraham Nova vs. Weusi Johnson

Nova spent the early part of the fight teeing off on Johnson. Johnson spit his mouth guard out against the ropes, but the ref didn’t pause action to give him a break.

Moments later, a right hand turned Johnson’s lights out for the Round 1 finish.
