Friday, October 8th

South Philly Arena, Philadelphia, Pa. (Telefutura) 

Welterweights  – Danny “Swift” Garcia faced his most experienced opponent to date in a fight that was supposed to give him some rounds, but that wasn’t the case as he knocked out “Unmighty” Mike Arnaoutis at 1:05 of the fourth round.

  • Garcia knocked Arnaoutis down twice, the first coming at the end of the third round from a left hook, and again in the fourth from a combination. 
  • Arnaoutis has lost four in a row and five of his last six.  His record fell to 22-7-2. 
  • Garcia, who improved to 19-0, 13 KO’s, is just 22 years young and has a bright future in the boxing game.

Flyweights  – Ring Magazine Flyweight Champion of the World Pongsaklek Wonjongkam remained champion with a hard fought twelve round unanimous decision over Suriyan Por Chokchai by the scores of 115-114, 114-113, and 115-112.

  • Wonjongkam relied on his experience to outwork Chokchai, who wasn’t expected to put up much of a challenge.  Wonjongkam is unbeaten in thirteen straight fights and improved to 77-3-1.
  • Por Chokchai has nothing to be ashamed of.  He just opened up a lot of eyes in the flyweight division based on his performance.  His record is now 14-5-1.
  • Wonjongkam is lucky to have come away with a win here.  If it wasn’t for an idiotic wbc rule that takes a point away from the fighter that doesn’t get cut from an accidental clash of heads, the fight would have ended in a draw, as he was cut that way in the eighth round.  I believe a rematch should be ordered immediately.

Jr Bantamweights  – Ring Magazine #2 Jr. Bantamweight Hugo “El Increible” Cazares dropped Alberto Rossel twice en route to stopping him at :31 of the ninth round.

  • Cazares was in command the entire bout and he scored a knockdown in the fourth round and again in the ninth.  He is one of the top boxers in the game and is unbeaten over his last seven bouts.  Overall he improved his record to 33-6-2, 24 KO’s. 
  • Rossel was clearly outclassed in this one, despite coming into the fight having won six in a row.  His record dropped to 24-8.
  • I said leading into this fight that the matchup that needs to be made in the division is Cazares against fellow Mexican contender Tomas Rojas, and I still believe that to be true.
