IBF junior welterweight titleholder Juan Urango (22-1-1, 17 KOs) successfully defended his title with an exciting knockdown-filled eleventh round stoppage over former two-time champion Randall Bailey (39-7, 35 KOs) on Friday night at the Seminole Hard Rock Live Arena in Hollywood, Florida. The entire bout was hotly contested between the huge-punching Bailey and the relentless Urango. Bailey dropped Urango hard with a huge right hand in round six and the clearly hurt “Iron Twin” barely beat the count. The iron-willed Urango, however, came back with a strong body attack and brutally floored Bailey twice in round nine. Bailey managed to get out of the round, but Urango floored him again in the tenth. Bailey’s corner finally stopped the fight in the eleventh. Time was 1:51.
In a clash for the vacant IBF light heavyweight title, unbeaten #1 rated Tavoris Cloud (20-0, 18 KOs) punished #2 rated former champ Clinton Woods (42-5-1, 24 KOs) for twelve rounds to claim the belt. The 27-year-old Cloud simply had too much power and too much energy for the more experienced 37-year-old Woods. Cloud rocked Woods in rounds eight and ten, dominating down the stretch. Scores were 116-112 on all cards.
