Ain’t that a Thrill: Gavril batters Falowo on ShoBox!

By Ace Freeman (30-Aug-2014)

Ronald Gavril TKO 7 Thomas Falowo

The Money Team’s unbeaten Ronald ‘The Thrill’ Gavril (10-0, 8 KOs) won a thrilling seventh round technical stoppage over a gallant Thomas Falowo at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas moments ago on Showtime. Gavril started fast with a strong jab and dropped Falowo in round three with a big right hand. The Rhode Island charge beat the count and showed a lot of heart to fight back hard in the ensuing rounds but Gavrils jab and mechanics were the difference. In Round 7 a series of power shots from Gavril had Falowo on unsteady legs and the Romanian pounded away until the bout was stopped. It was the opening bout on ShoBox’s night of Mayweather Promotions rising stars and Gavril did not disappoint.

Trout climbs off canvas to rally back and defeat Dawson

By Ace Freeman (22-Aug-2014)

Austin Trout W UD10 Daniel Dawson

It was in doubt early for former world champion Austin ‘No doubt’ Trout (27-2,14 KOs) when he was down twice in the third round against former two-time world title challenger Daniel Dawson (40-2-1, 26 KOs) in the main event on ESPN Friday Night Fights… but Trout rallied and came back to win by convincing decision to halt his two fight losing skid. Trout took control early but the two knockdowns in the third came via great right hand counters from the underdog Dawson. Trout was in trouble but showed resolve to hang in there. In the fourth he took charge again with his jab and never looked back. He dropped Dawson in the eighth and was on the verge of a stoppage but the Australian hung in and lasted the distance where Trout took the bout 97-90 on all three cards. The action went down at the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, California.
