THURMAN GETS CLOSE DECISION OVER PORTER
By Scott Shaffer

Keith Thurman W12 Shawn Porter: In Brooklyn, New York, a thrilling welterweight war was narrowly won by Keith Thurman.  The WBA welterweight title remained with Thurman by unanimous decision. All three judges scored the fight 115 to 113, or seven rounds to five for Thurman. Boxingtalk agreed with that score although a draw would have been an equally reasonable result. Both men gave a great account of themselves and Porter was actually credited with landing one punch more than Thurman did, 236 - 235. There isn't a boxing fan on the planet who would object to a rematch.

 JOSHUA STEAMROLLS BREZEALE IN SEVEN

Anthony Joshua TKO7 Dominic Brezeale... In London, 2012 Olympic gold medalist Anthony Joshua made the first defense of his IBF heavyweight championship a successful one by stopping Dominic Brezeale of the United States.  After six one-sided rounds, Joshua decked Brezeale  twice in the seventh to win the battle of former Olympians. The best that can be said about Brezeale is that he outperformed Charles Martin, the man who Joshua took the IBF title from a couple of months ago. Brezeale showed plenty of heart and absorbed a lot of punishment but landed precious few significant shots of his own. Joshua shook Brezeale with a body shot in the second round, causing the American to stagger into a corner. Rather than move in for the kill, Joshua continue to work patiently and effectively behind his jab. In the seventh, a clearly spent Brezeale was rescued by referee Howard Foster when he was dropped hard for the second time in the round.source: showtime boradcast
