Upsets abound on PBC: Peralta shocks Guerrero
Hernandez stuns ‘El Perro’ Angulo!

By Ace Freeman (27-Aug-2016)

Results from PBC on Spike TV from the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA!

It was a night of upsets Saturday on PBC at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. In the main event of the evening massive betting underdog David Emanuel Peralta (26-2-1, 14 KOs) did enough to edge heavily favoured former world champ Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (33-5-1, 18 KOs) over twelve rounds. It was a dog-fight most of the way through but the cagy challenger found another gear late, including rocking and dropping Guerrero in Round 9 though the referee neglected to rule it as such. It was closely contested but Peralta seemingly did enough down the stretch and late in the fight to earn his two scores of 116-112 and 115-113 while the third judge saw the bout 115-113 Guerrero, rendering the bout a improbable split decision win for Peralta.

On the undercard, unheralded Freddy Hernandez (34-8, 22 KOs) used his height, reach and boxing ability to largely stymie the normally aggressive Alfredo ‘El Perro’ Angulo (24-6, 20 KOs) over ten rounds. The action was fierce in the early going but Hernandez settled into a rhythm and boxed well and Angulo never really managed to find another gear later in the bout. After ten rounds scores were read as 98-92 and 97-93 (x2) giving Hernandez the clear cut unanimous decision win.

I have a new trainer for the first time – a new team – and I am looking forward to showing fans a new fighter. A victory will stamp my name as a true world champion contender.

On a special Sunday edition of Premier Boxing Champions on NBC, emerging welterweight star Errol ‘The Truth’ Spence Jr. (21-0, 18 KOs) continued to looked every bit the part as he dispatched the normally durable top rated contender Leonard ‘The Lion’ Bundu (33-2-2, 12 KOs) in six rounds at the Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk in New York. It was a tactical fight in the early going but Spence flipped a switch and figured Bundu out after four rounds. In Round six a telling uppercut felled Bundu and while he beat the count a violent right hook put him down and nearly out cold giving Spence an emphatic knockout victory. Bundu went the distance with top welterweight Keith Thurman in 2014 making this an especially impressive win for Spence.

Antonio Margarito out-points Canelo’s brother Ramon!

By Ace Freeman (13-Aug-2016)

Antonio Margarito W SD10 Ramon Alvarez

Former welterweight world champion Antonio Margarito (40-8, 27 KOs) returned to action Saturday night in Baja California, Mexico, where he scored a convincing ten round split decision victory over Ramon Alvarez (23-5-2, 15 KOs), the brother of Mexican star Saul ‘Canelo’. Margarito looked a little rusty in the early going but down the stretch he took the fight to Alvarez with his patented pressure style. He scored a knockdown in Round 8 when he caught Alvarez with a sneaky right hand. Alvarez rebounded well and made a nice last stand in Round 10 but it was too little, too late. Margarito was ahead on two cards by 97-92 cards to pick up the win. The third card was 95-94 for Alvarez, which seemed like a stretch.
