ANOTHER TRIO OF DBE PROSPECTS DELIVERS

It was another clean sweep for a trio of DiBella Entertainment prospects as Abel Ramos, Jonathan Alonso and Brandon Williams all picked up impressive victories over the weekend. Fighting for the second time in just three weeks, Ramos (16-1-2, 11KO's), headlining in front of his hometown fans in Phoenix, AZ, put on a scintillating performance, scoring a devastating fifth-round TKO over the previously undefeated Dario Ferman (13-1, 10KO's). The 24-year-old Ramos, who was a sensational amateur, has scored back-to-back knockout victories since suffering the lone defeat of his professional career to red-hot and undefeated prospect Regis Prograis last December on ShoBox. Ramos plans to keep a very busy 2016 to establish himself as a force in the loaded 140lb. division.

 MAURICE WATKINS TRAINING HEAVYWEIGHT JUSTIN JONES

Press Release:  Given the size of his dreams, the pairing of the undefeated Houston heavyweight Justin "Jawbreaker" Jones (18-0-1, 11 KOs) and Texas boxing legend Maurice "Termite" Watkins is ideal. When you're an unknown fighter looking to break into boxing’s big time, who better to have as your trainer than a man known for working fistic miracles? "Termite has me doing things I have never done before," said Jones. "He's a work-ethic guy. He makes me throw a lot of punches and wants me busy all the time. He wants me to throw 250 punches, per round, on the bag. That's unheard of for a heavyweight. He makes me push myself you know? I really think I'm going to break a CompuBox record someday."bA well-respected trainer and former fighter, Watkins retired in 1990 with a record of 61-5-2, 41 KOs. He challenged for the WBC 140-pound title in 1980, losing a 15-round decision to Saoul Mamby. But he is probably known best for a different pair of achievements.

 RESULTS FROM SOUTH KOREA

LARA OUTBOXES MATIROSYAN FOR UD
By G. Leon

Erislandy Lara UD12 Vanes Matirosyan: As expected, round one was a tactical feeling out process. Matirosyan was able to find the mark with his right hand, the most meaningful scoring blows of the opening frame. Lara's counter punches were the difference in round two. Not only did he land the cleanest punches of the round, he acutally outworked the challenger. Round three saw Matirosyan come out determined to work the body as landed several thudding left hooks to Lara's midsection. Lara, who suffered a hematoma following a clash of heads, had his moments, but it was clearly a Matirosyan round. The fourth round was a snoozer. Matirosyan landed a couple of borderline low blows that went uncalled by referee Vic Drakulich. Lara had a solid fifth round. He kept Matirosyan off balance and made him reach with a few of his missed power shots. Lara's countering appeared to make Matirosyan reluctacnt to punch. That changed in round six when Matirosyan came out like a man on fire for the first thirty seconds of the round. Lara landed a couple of counter lefts that backed Matirosyan off. Matirosyan's right eye is badly swollen and his workrate has once again slowed. Lara landed a few more counter punches and the round could go either way. Matirosyan again started fast in round 7. He again threw more punches, but he was once again the receipient of more punches than he was able to land. Lara and Matirosyan can't help but give us difficult fights to score. Round 8 was Gatti-Ward compared to the first seven rounds. Both fighters opened up and punched in combination, Boxingtalk saw Lara land the cleaner punches but it was another difficult round to score. Lara was dominant in round nine. Matirosyan threw more punches, but Lara's left hand couldn't miss. The tenth round followed the pattern of the fight. Vanes started fast, Lara began to counter and then it became a nip and tuck affair in another tough round to score. Matirosyan came out fast again but lost a point when he landed a shot on Lara's belt that was ruled as at least his third low blow of the fight. If this was a 10-8 round for Lara it likely determined the outcome of the fight. Matirosyan took round twelve as Lara was content to cover up and cruise to his deserved victory. Boxingtalk scored it 115-112. Official scores were 115-112, 116-111 twice. With the win, Lara retains his WBA and IBO world titles. Source: Showtime.

By G. Leon

Jermall Charlo UD12 Austin Trout: After a tactical first round that could have gone either way, IBF junior middleweight champion Jermall Charlo controlled the majority of the action for the first half of the bout.

From round seven on Trout found his rhythm and appeared to figure Charlo out. He was effective at scoring and getting away from Charlo's counters. There were a couple of swing rounds and in a fight this close that is ultimately what determined the outcome. Official scores were 115-113, 116-112, 116-112. Boxingtalk scored it a draw. After the bout Charlo said that he will continue to campaign as a junior middleweight. Source: Showtime

With the win, Charlo improved to 28-0 (13), captured the vacant WBC super welterweight title and made history.
