IBF #3 heavyweight Eddie Chambers (34-1, 18 KOs) won a ten round majority decision over former heavyweight champion Sam Peter (30-3, 23 KOs) on Friday nigbt at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. The quicker Chambers did a little more than the sluggish Peter, who came in at a career high of 265 pounds, but was reluctant to engage in sustained attacks against the big-punching ex-champ. Scores were 95-95, 96-94, 99-91. It was Peter’s first fight since losing his world title against Vitali Klitschko.
In his pro debut, Olympian welterweight Javier Molina outclassed 36-year-old Jaime Cabrera, who was also making his pro debut. Molina dropped Cabrera twice with body shots before the bout was waved off at 1:50.
Hot unbeaten lightweight John Molina (16-0, 12KOs) over came a strong start by journeyman Carlos Vinan (8-7-3, 1KOs) to score an impressive second round TKO. Referee David Mendoza waved it off at the 2:40 with Vinan taking heavy punishment.
Olympic super middleweight Shawn Estrada (3-0, 3 KOs) needed just 1:41 to blow out Ray Craig (5-5, 2KOs). Craig was down three times.
Unbeaten light heavyweight Ismayl Sillakh moved to 7-0, 6 KOs with a third round stoppage of Carlos Reyes (4-1, 2KOs).
