In the first three rounds, it was a mismatch as the 39-year-old Rudenko was on the defense doing much holding. In the fourth round, Referee Gary Ritter took away a point. In the fifth round, Anderson landed close to twenty punches while Referee Ritter stood by before finally calling a halt.

Heavyweight Efe Ajagba, 18-1 (13), #236.5, of Ughelli, NIG, Stafford, TX, won by DQ over southpaw Zhan Kossobutskiy, 19-1 (18), #234.4, of Kostanay, KAZ, at 0:33 of the fourth round of a 10.

In the first round, Ajagba seemed to control until the final seconds when Kossobutskiy landed several lefts from his southpaw stance to the chin of Ajagba, followed by a right.

In the second round’s final seconds, both hit the canvas. Upon rising, Ajagba had Kossobutskiy in trouble, having him against the ropes at the bell.

In the third round, Kossobutskiy landed a pair of low blows, and as the referee Chris Suarez, got between them, Ajagba was pushed to the canvas. A point was deducted.

When they continued, Kossobutskiy again landed a low punch, losing another point. Seconds later, it was Ajagba landing a low blow and receiving a warning. Another warning to Kossobutskiy in the final seconds was given. Ajagba went after him, landing a barrage of punches, driving Kossobutskiy to the ropes at the bell.

In the fourth round, while in a clinch, Kossobutskiy landed a low left on purpose, causing the referee to “finally” call a halt! What was he waiting for?

In the first four rounds, Carrington showed his boxing ability, landing some punches half a dozen at a time. In between rounds, Carrington looks half exhausted, but when the bell rings, he suddenly comes alive.

From the fifth through the seventh rounds, Carrington stayed one step ahead of Contreras, using an effective jab and going to the body on occasions. In the eighth and final round, Carrington landed a right to the head followed by a right uppercut to the chin against the durable Contreras from the opening bell to the final bell he dominated. The referee was Gary Ritter.

Scores were 79-73 twice and 80-72, as did KH.

In the first two rounds, Suarez, a member of the Filipino Army, dominated by countering the incoming Vasquez, ending the second round with an overhand left from southpaw.

In the third round, Vasquez came out throwing punches in bunches for the first minute until Suarez turned southpaw and took over from there to the end of the round.

In the fourth round, Suarez rocked Vasquez with a left on the chin at the end of the first minute. With a minute remaining, Suarez rocked Vasquez with a left on the chin, both from the southpaw stance. For some reason, he returns to orthodox, not doing as well.

In the fifth round, with less than a minute remaining losing the round, Vasquez landed an overhand right on the chin, rocking Suarez, but failed to follow up.

In the sixth round, Vasquez dominated, bringing blood from the nose of Suarez. In the seventh and eighth rounds, Vasquez continued doing well as Suarez seemed to be slowing down a bit, though he rallied in the final seconds of the seventh round.

In the ninth round, Suarez came back well first at southpaw and even at orthodox, stopping the offense of Vasquez the past three rounds. In the tenth and final round, knowing he needed a knockout, Vasquez was swinging wildly but being countered by Suarez for the most part.

Vasquez was the bigger man, but Suarez was the quicker of hand and foot. Referee Gerald Ritter did a fine job.

Scores were 98-92 twice and 97-93, as did KH.

In the first round, it was back and forth who was in control in a close round to judge. In the second round, Akale continued coming in with his head throwing overhand rights that Walsh would counter while against the ropes.

In the third round’s final minute, Akale landed an overhand right to the chin of Walsh, who countered with a left hook to the chin of Akale.

In the fourth round’s final minute, a left hook from Walsh on the chin of Akale buckled his knees, making him hold onto Walsh.

In the final seconds, it was Akale landing punches at the bell. In the fifth round, the taller Walsh, staying too upright, gets caught with overhand rights from Akale.

Halfway through the round, a lead right from Walsh on the chin knocked out the mouthpiece of Akale.

In the sixth and final round, the 23-year-old Walsh did well in the middle of the ring, but when allowing the 35-year-old Akale to push him to the ropes, the latter did well in a close fight to judge. The referee was Gerald Ritter.

Scores were 57-57 and 58-56 twice with 57-57 KH.

In the eighth and final round, Milton came out and knocked out the mouthpiece of Lewis with a right to the chin. In the final seconds, Lewis fell to the canvas without being punched, and the referee should have called a halt but failed to do so.
