Kishon Davis “dried” Burgos, Ward tinkered with Zhulan


New York, USA. As part of the Lopez-Martin boxing evening, the American lightweight prospect (up to 61.2 kg) Kishon Davis (7-0, 5 KOs) for the second time in his professional career failed to finish his opponent, who this time was the experienced Mexican ex-champion for the world titles Juan Carlos Burgos (35-7-3, 21 KOs).

However, Burgos has never lost ahead of schedule in his career, and Kishon “squeezed out” the maximum from the decision of the judges: three times 80-72 in his favor.

Light heavyweight Joe Ward (8-1, 4 KOs), a participant in the 2016 Olympic Games as part of the Ireland national team, outboxed Frenchman Frederic Zhulan (12-2, 10 KOs) in an 8-round confrontation with a score of 78-74, 79-73 and again 79- 73. It is worth noting that the judges’ assessments do not quite reflect what was happening in the ring – it was somewhat more competitive there.

Heavyweight prospect from Poland Damian Knyba (10-0, 6 KOs) did not meet with worthy resistance from Puerto Rican Emilio Salas (7-4-1, 3 KOs). Already in the course of the second round, it became obvious that this would not end well for Salas, who missed too many blows, and the corner of the Puerto Rican asked the referee to stop the meeting.

In the opening bout of the show, former US Olympic team member Delante, aka Tiger, Johnson (7-0, 5 KOs) stopped compatriot Mike O’Han Jr. (16-2, 9 KOs) in the 5th round after a one-sided the beating was stopped by the referee.
