Amanda Serrano defeats Ela Nunez in early "Fight of the Year" Candidate!

PhilBoxing.com




In an absolute slugfest, IBF Female World Super Featherweight Champion Amanda Serrano and Ela Nunez went toe to toe for every second of all eight rounds to take the early lead for "Fight of The Year" in front of a very animated, sold out crowd from Cicero Stadium in Cicero, Ill., Friday Night. The entire event, which was promoted by S.M. Promotions and sponsored by Boxing360.com, was broadcast LIVE, for free, on Boxing360.com to a worldwide audience who responded with its approval with countless social media comments through Twitter, Facebook, text-messaging, live chat-room comments and emails, which now has the boxing world buzzing with excitement!

Serrano started the fight in total control, landing multi-punch combinations to batter Nunez around the ring for the first round. But Nunez rebounded strongly in the second round by landing her own bombs.

Both fighters landed hard shots throughout, drawing a standing ovation from the crowd after each round. The action was intense and the heart that both fighters displayed was second to none. This was the fourth time these two warriors have met and each time fans have been treated with Robinson-LaMotta- and Gatti-Ward-like performances.

In the end, with both fighters donning swollen faces, two of the three judges scored the fight 78-74 while the third had it 77-75 all in favor of Amanda Serrano who improved to 14-0-1. Ella Nunez drops to 12-12-2.

Everyone I spoke to after the fight said they wanted to see Serrano-Nunez V!



In the co-main event, undefeated heavyweight prospects Joey Dawejko and Juan Carlos Robles battled to a six-round draw. Both fighters had their moments. Robles landed several body shots that stunned Dawejko, but the young Polish-American fighter, who is fighting out of Philadelphia, used a snappy, fast and powerful jab to set up solid shots to both the body and head of Robles, despite injuring his right hand during the first round.

When the final bell sounded, all three judges scored the fight 57-57. Dawejko remains undefeated at 5-0-1. Robles is 12-4-1.

Off a fantastic KO win over Guy Robb recently showcased on the Showtime network, hot young undefeated Lightweight prospect, Joel Diaz Jr. needed just 30 seconds to dispose of tough Ryan Pederson. A solid two-punch combination sent Pederson down and out. Diaz improves to 8-0 and is definitely a fighter to watch. Pederson, who is known for being a tough kid out of Missouri, left with a broken nose and a 2-8 record.

Ninos Abraham may have gotten a hometown decision when two judges scored 39-37 and the third saw it as 40-36, which resulted in giving the young super middleweight a four-round unanimous decision victory over Alonso Perdomo. Abraham dominated the first round; however Perdomo seemed to be the much busier fighter, working the body and head of Abraham for the rest of the fight. But at the conclusion, the official judge's scorecards enabled Abraham to leave the ring with a 6-0-1 record. Perdomo drops to 1-4. A rematch would be interesting.

Heavyweight Ricardo Chavez made his pro debut in front of a hometown crowd a memorable one, stopping Khuzaymah Al-Nubu'at at 1:08 of the very first round.

In the evening's opening contest, Michael Gavronski stopped Chris Grays at 0:56 of the fourth round of their scheduled six-round light-heavyweight bout, to improve to 6-0-1. Grays drops to 10-27.

This was a GREAT show that had the crowd begging for another one soon at Cicero Stadium (right outside of Chicago) from S.M. Promotions and Boxing360.

The entire "International Rumble In Cicero" card was broadcast LIVE to a worldwide audience on Boxing360.com, LDLTV and Ustream. Billy C from the Talkin Boxing With Billy C TV & Radio Programs called the action with former world champion David Diaz.
