Ukrainian super welterweight Serhii “El Flaco” Bohachuk stopped Raphael “Trouble” Igbokwe in last night’s “Hollywood Fight Nights” main event at Quiet Cannon Event Center in Montebello, California.
“Hollywood Fight Nights,” presented by Roy Jones Jr. (RJJ) Boxing and 360 Promotions in association with World Cup Boxing Series, streamed live on UFC FIGHT PASS®,
Bohachuk (20-1, 20 KOs), fighting out of Los Angeles, dominated Houston’s Igbokwe (16-3, 7 KOs), the former Texas State middleweight and ABF USA super middleweight champion, battering the southpaw with a succession of right hands. The battering by the World Boxing Council’s No. 13 rated super welterweight Bohachuk, a former WBC Continental Americas 168-pound division titlist, until Igbokwe’s corner ended the fight after six rounds.
In the co-featured event, Kazakhstan super middleweight Ali Akhmedov (17-1, 12 KOs) was the hunter against his Peruvian opponent, David “La Pantera” Zegarra (34-6, 21 KOs), former WBA FEDALATIN middleweight and South American super middleweight champion. Akhmedov, now fighting out of Henderson, Nevada, hurt Zegarra with an uppercut in the third and final round. Zegarra was unable to continue after three rounds and Akhmedov won by way of a knockout (under California rules).
Armenian cruiserweight Rafayel “Bam Bam” Simonyan (9-1-1, 8 KOs) and Adrian “Monta-Ru” Taylor (11-1-1, 4 KOs), of Dallas, fought to an 8-round split draw. Scoring rounds was difficult for judges who had the fight 76-76, 77-75 in favor of Simonyan, and 79-73 favoring Taylor.
In a battle of undefeated California super featherweights, the boxer turned puncher as Adrian Corona (8-0, 2 KOs) floored Daniel “Big Dawg” Robles (7-1, 5 KOs) early in the fight and finished him off later in round one, landing a barrage of punches that put Robles to sleep with 15-seconds left in the opening round.
California lightweight Chelsey “Mae” Anderson (4-0, 1 KO) remained undefeated, registering a flash knockdown of Austrian Elvina “Warrior” White (5-1, 2 KOs) in the opening round, followed in the second in which Anderson pounded White, sending her game opponent to the canvas en route to a win by way of 4-round unanimous decision
