Former light heavyweight world champion Glen Johnson (49-12-2, 33 KOs) avenged a controversial 2003 draw against Daniel Judah (23-4-3, 10 KOs) with a dominating ten round unanimous decision on Friday night at the Seminole Hard Rock LIVE Arena in Hollywood, Florida. Risking his lofty WBC #2, WBA #3, IBF #5, WBO #3 ratings, Johnson dropped Judah with a big right hand at the end of round one, and punished Judah the rest of the way, winning clearly 99-89, 99-90, 99-90.

In a great action fight, local welterweight Antwone Smith (15-1-1, 8 KOs) upset previously unbeaten Norberto Gonzalez (16-1, 12 KOs), 78-74 on all cards. While on the attack in round two, the highly regarded Gonzalez was dropped by a right hand counter from Smith. Gonzalez was cut over the left eye by another right in round three and Smith outworked him down the stretch.

Junior welterweight Jesus Pabon (14-1, 8 KOs) won a six round unanimous decision over Lenin Arroyo (20-9-1, 4 KOs). The southpaw Pabon was credited with two knockdowns while Arroyo had two points deducted for low blows. Scores were 60-51, 59-51 and 57-53.

Unbeaten jr welterweight prospect Danny O’Connor (4-0, 1 KO) looked good in pounding out a four round majority decision over Jamar Saunders (2-2-1, 1 KO). Scores were 40-36, 40-36, and a bizarre 38-38.

In a wild swinging middleweight fight , Eli Augustama (3-0, 2 KOs) won a majority decision over a tough William Deet (2-8, 1 KO). Although there were no knockdowns, the action was steady until the final bell. The scorecards read 39-37, 39-37 and 38-38.

Heavyweight Henry Fuentes (8-0, 5 KOs) remained perfect with a TKO over Samuel Brown (5-5-2). The Cuban southpaw Fuentes scored two knockdowns in the fight, forcing the referee to stop the action at 2:03 of the third round.

Russian Heavyweight Magomed Abdusalamov (3-0, 3 KOs) impressed with a first round knockout of an outmatched Maurice Winslow (3-8-1, 3 KOs). The referee called a halt to the fight at 1:13 of the first round.

Russian Welterweight Khabib Alakhuerdiev (9-0, 4 KOs) scored a TKO over Richard Pitt (5-10, 1 KO), knocking him down three times in the first round. The official time was 2:19.
