WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto (24-0, 19 KOs) barely got by former WBA champ Luis Collazo (29-4, 14 KOs) on Saturday night at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. Collazo got off to an excellent start against Berto as both fighters met at close quarters. After Berto was deducted a point for holding in round four, Berto started boxing from the outside in round five and had a few good rounds. Collazo got a second wind in rounds nine and ten, but Berto closed the fight strong to pull it out. Scores were 116-111, 114-113, 114-113.
———-
Heavyweight Tor Hamer (3-0, 3 KOs) pummeled Darion Moss (0-3), knocking Moss through the ropes to end it at 1:53 of round two.
———-
Unbeaten super middleweight Edwin Rodriguez (9-0, 6 KOs) scored a third round TKO over Brad Austin (8-6, 5 KOs). Austin was down once in each once in each round before the bout was waved off at the 1:09 mark.
———-
U.S. Olympian welterweight Sadam Ali needed just 1:42 to destroy Ricky Thompson (1-5) in his highly anticipated pro debut. A right hook dropped Thompson, who beat the count but couldn’t continue due to a suspected broken eardrum.
———-
Junior welter Wes Ferguson (20-3-1, 6 KOs) stopped a game and determined Derrick Moon (13-26-1, 3 KOs) at 2:31 of round six.
———-
Unbeaten super middleweight Jonathan Nelson (8-0, 4 KOs) won a clear but competitive six-round unanimous decision over Richmond Dalphone (0-5-2). Scores were 60-54, 59-55, 59-55.
