Tony Luis mugs previously unbeaten Karl Dargan on ESPN, picks up huge win on US soil!

By Ace Freeman (30-Jan-2015)

Tony Luis W UD10 Karl Dargan

Cornwall, Ontario’s Tony ‘Lightning’ Luis (19-2, 7 KOs) just picked up a major win on American soil when he upset previously undefeated and heavily favoured Karl ‘Dynamite’ Dargan (17-1, 9 KOs) in the main event of ESPN’s “Friday Night Fights live from Foxwoods Resort in Mashantucket, Connecticut. Luis was all over Dargan like white on rice from the opening to closing bell. Luis used constant pressure and a wide array of punches to pepper and keep his taller opponent largely stymied. Luis dropped Dargan early in the bout but the referee blew the call. Luis went right back to work and kept his foot on the gas the entire way, keeping the American on the defensive with little room to breathe. The Canadian visitor picked it up in the late rounds and poured it on down the stretch scoring a legitimate knockdown in the final stanza to put it out of reach. After ten rounds were in the bokks the scores were read as 97-92 (x2) and 99-90, giving Luis the emphatic decision victory. With the win the Ontario product picked up the WBC Continental Americas Lightweight Championship in a bout he dedicated to the unborn child he and his wife are expecting next month. A great story all the way around. Congrats Tony!

“I have much respect for Karl Dargan,” said Tony Luis this week. “He is slick and quick. In short he is good. To be the best you have to beat the best. I am coming to fight and to win. We both have our work cut out for us. I will be prepared for anything. I know I am the ‘B’ side fighter and he has had the investment and protection I have not had in my career and it will slant in his favor. I have to fight harder and do more. I have been here before. The pressure is on him to stay undefeated. I have been there in his shoes. I will see Karl Dargan in the ring on Friday, Jan. 30 and may the best man win. To the victor go the spoils.”

All action welterweight Brandon Rios scored a brutal third round beatdown over his long-time nemesis Mike Alvarado in their highly anticipated rubbermatch at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, CO on Saturday night. Rios came out furiously from the opening bell, ripping Alvarado with uppercuts and right hands and scoring a knockdown in Round 3 before the bout was stopped between rounds after Alvarado was unable to tell the ring doctor how many fingers he was holding. For his part, Alvarado looked slow and overwhelmed in the bout, and was unable to keep Rios away from him as he managed to do  in their 2013 rematch.

Canada’s Claggett drops decision to Russia’s Ponomarev as boos rain down at 1stBank Center in Colorado!

Canadian welterweight champion Steve ‘The Dragon’ Claggett joins the long list of canuck fighters who travelled south of the border and deserved a better fate when he found himself on the wrong end of a decision victory against undefeated Russian Konstantin Ponomarev Saturday night in Denver, Colorado. It was an exciting fight in which Claggett was the aggressor throughout and appeared to land the harder, more effective punches the whole way but had his opponent largely pitty-pattying with lighter shots in higher volume. The Canadian started well behind his jab but the Russian fighter responded in kind using his lead well. Claggett’s best work came from counter right hands that had Ponomarev’s nose bloody several rounds in. The fighters traded rounds in the middle but Claggett came on strong in the end breaking his man down. With 20 seconds remaining in the eighth Claggett caught Ponomarev with a big right hand that had him hurt and retreating into the ropes. Claggett pounded away until the bell rang to the delight of the local Denver crowd. Afterwards, Ponomarev was announced the winner by scores of 77-75 (x2) and 78-74… the latter card curiously featuring two even rounds. The decision was met with a chorus of boos and Claggett left the ring with his hand in the air receiving his just due from the fans at ringside.
