Former WBA super bantamweight champion Clarence “Bones” Adams (44-6-4, 20 KOs) turned the clock back last night at the Palms Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, looking as good as he did when he defeated Nestor Garza for the WBA title nine years ago. Staging a comeback, the 35-year-old former champion, who’s fought but four times in the last three years, scored an eighth round TKO of former world title challenger Alex “Ali” Baba (26-16-1, 19 KOs).

The semi-main event of the Sterling Productions card saw Francisco Rios Gil (17-9, 12 KOs) dominate Angel “Baby Boy” Flores (9-4 3 KOs). Rios dropped Flores in the first round, rocked him in the second and unleashed an unanswered barrage of punches in the third, causing referee Robert Byrd to stop the bout at 1:07.

Sharif “The Lion” Bogere (10-0 6 KOs), of Las Vegas, carried into the ring in a lion’s cage by four bearers, continued his winning ways with a dominating performance over Broderick Antoine (5-8-1 4 KOs), winning a unanimous decision. Scores were 60-53, 60-53, 60-52.

In other results:

Rashad Holloway (10-1-1, 5 KOs) and Harrison Cuello (18-10-3, 5 KOs) fought to a draw in six rounds.

Andre Hemphill (8-12-2, 3 KOs) won by TKO over Thomas Rittenbaugh. Rittenbaugh broke his hand in the first round and finally had to quit at the end of the third.

Rennell Griffin (4-1-1, 1 KO) won a unanimous decision over Terrence Jett (4-14-2, 2 KOs).
