EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: LOU DIBELLA
By G. Leon

GL: Can you give us some thoughts on your the fantastic Shobox card you promoted on February 10? I think three young guys won who are now still part of the picture in a big way, but most importantly, the first fight was a great fight between Fernandez and Garza, who gave 110% effort, I think it was a spectacular fight. But then the main event between Ivan Baranchyk and Abel Ramos was a classic, litterallly. Punch-stat did the numbers and it was on par with Corrales-Castillo and Gatti-Ward, granted neither of them had star names, but they have bright futures and they were throwing down like it was world war 3. It was a fight that people are going to remember, it was a classic Shobox and I think we may see both guys fight each other down the line when it means more. I think Baranchyk is a force in the 140 lb division and I think he's like an Arturo Gatti kind of guy.

POST-FIGHT INTERVIEW: LAMONT PETERSON
By G. Leon

GL: Congrats on your victory over David Avanesyan. Can you give us some thoughts on your performance? I think I did pretty good considering I've been off for a while. It was great to be able to get some rounds in and be able to fight. GL: Was there anything about Avanesyan that surprised you? He was tougher than I thought I would he would be, I was expecting to have him broken down by the eighth or ninth round, but he showed that he was a champion for a reason.

2x Shakur Stevenson conqueror back in action April 14!

GL: Congrats on your recent victory over Camacho, can you give us some thoughts on your performance? Yeah, he was a little awkward so I felt like I had to be a little bit more patient and cautious, but once I started getting more comfortable and finding more openings I took advantage of them. I didn't take any big risks because I didn't want to get caught with anything stupid, but the night went pretty well.

BRONER WINS CLOSE FIGHT AGAINST RUGGED GRANADOS
By G. Leon

Adrien Broner SD10 Adrian Granados: It didn't take long for Adrian Granados to show that he belonged in the ring with a fighter the caliber of former four division champion Adrien Broner. Granados was the aggressor from the opening bell and thoroughly outworked Adrien Broner, 33-2 (24), in each and every round, however it was the quality of Broner's cleaner crisper punches that made this a very difficult fight to score. In round three an accidental clash of heads opened a cut on the nose of Granados. Broner, 18-5-2 (12) suffered a cut above his right eye in the ninth round. Boxingtalk scored it 95-95. Official scores were 97-93 Broner, 97-93 Granados, 96-94 Broner. Source: Showtime

PETERSON TAKES UD OVER AVANESYAN, IN LINE TO FIGHT THURMAN-GARCIA WINNER
By G. Leon

Lamont Peterson UD12 David Avanesyan: Former junior welterweight Lamont Peterson made it his business to take on a tough fight in his welterweight debut when chose to challenge WBA titlist David Avanesyan following a sixteen month layoff. He then made it his business to engage far more than necessary over the course of the first five rounds, each of which was a nip and tuck affair. Since Peterson, 35-3-1 (17), chose to fight as though he missed the full contact, the rugged Avanesyan was able to land body shots and uppercuts on a regular basis during the first four rounds. Peterson took control of the bout in round five and may have pitched a shutout from that point on. Avanesyan, 22-2-1 (11), was super game and deserves another shot aginst another top welterweight. Boxingtalk scored it 116-112.  Official scores were 116-112, 116-112. Source: Showtime

BROWNE DESTROYS WILLIAMS IN 6
By G. Leon

Marcus Browne KO6 Thomas Williams Jr: Undefeated light heavyweight contender Marcus Browne easily handled Thomas Williams in the opening bout of tonight's Showtime Championship Boxing telecast, Browne dropped Williams with a perfectly placed jab in round two then inexplicably hit Williams with a chopping left hand while he was down. After nearly using the full minutes he was afforded to recover, Williams was again quickly hurt and looked to be on shaky legs headed into his corner at the end of the frame. Browne, 19-0 (14), dropped Williams with a counter right hook in the fourth round, but to his credit Williams regained himself and landed some solid blows before the round ended. Williams was extremely sloppy in round five and was fortunate he wasn't knocked out the way he was wildy looping his punches. Browne dropped Williams with another right hook seconds into the sixth round, this time Williams, 20-3 (14), took the full ten count. Official time of stoppage was :46. Source: Showtime

ROY JONES JR EASILY HANDLES BOBBY GUNN
By Scott Shaffer

RJ has now fought in 29 straight years!

Roy Jones TKO7 Bobby Gunn… Even at age 48, Roy Jones still has the skills to beat the crap out of the likes of Bobby Gunn. In Wilmington, Delaware, Jones landed punches at will against Bobby Gunn, who dubiously claims to be the bare knuckles champion of the world. The incredibly game and likable Gunn was a bloody, staggering mess after seven rounds, leading the referee to the stop the fight as the eighth was about to begin. The 43 year-old Gunn is now 21-7-1 on the traditional boxing circuit, and has not won a bout since 2009. The 48 year-old Jones continues to do what he loves, and as long as it against safe opposition like Gunn, Boxingtalk doesn’t mind. A 1988 Olympian, Jones is now 65-9 in his incredible career which has seen him have a pro fight every year from 1989-2017, the second longest current steak in boxing (Yori Boy Campas has had at least one pro fight from 1987-2016).The primary significance of this old-timers' bout is to delay Jones' Hall of Fame induction by another year. source: forbes
