Prescott wins bite fight!

By Jason Kotar at ringside

Undefeated WBO #7 lightweight contender Breidis Prescott (21-0, 18 KOs) won by DQ after being bit on the shoulder in round ten by Humberto Toledo (34-6-2, 20 KOs) on Friday night at the University Center Arena on the Nova Southeastern Campus in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Prescott was credited with a knockdown in round seven and appeared on his way to an easy decision until Toledo gnawed on his left shoulder at 1:58 of the tenth. Prescott is best known for knocking out highly touted Amir Kahn in 54 seconds last year.
Heavyweight Ramon Garbey (19-4, 13 KOs), a former prospect returning from a two-year layoff, scored four-round unanimous decision over journeyman Mike Shepard (11-9-1, 6 KOs). Garbey dropped Shepard in rounds three and twice in four. Scores were 40-33 on all cards.
2004 Olympic gold medalist Yuriorkis “El Ciclon” Gamboa (14-0, 12 KOs) needed just 35 seconds to annihilate Walter Estrada (35-9, 24 KOs) in an featherweight fight. A right hand put southpaw Estrada on the deck for the count.
In a junior middleweight bout, two-time world amateur champion Erislandy Lara (4-0, 3 KOs) needed just 69 seconds to destroy previously unbeaten Keith Gross (3-1, 1 KO). Gross was down twice.
In an entertaining affair, welterweight Ed Parades improved to 21-2, 13 KOs by outworking a game Josh Onyongo, who fell to 14-17-1, 11 KOs, via unanimous decision. Parades, landing the cleaner blows throughout the fight, had Onyongo hurt in round three and knocked him down with a straight right hand in round six. The judges scores were 59-54, 58-55 and 58-55.
Heavyweight Erick Leander improved to 6-0, 5 KOs with a TKO victory over Bobby O’Bannon 3-2, 3 KOs. Leander overwhelmed O’Bannon from the opening bell, knocking him down twice in round one, forcing the referee to stop the fight at 59 seconds of round one.
