In an IBF junior welterweight eliminator, two-time former world champion Randell Bailey (39-6, 34 KOs) scored a spectacular fourth round knockout over Frankie Figueroa (20-3, 13 KOs) on a free card presented live by Prize Fight Boxing and DiBella Entertainment outdoors in Handy Park on the famous Beale Street in downtown Memphis, Tennessee. Bailey almost immediately knocked down Figueroa with a right hand in round one, but Figueroa evened things up by knocking down Bailey in round two. It was Bailey, however, who ended it with a monsterous right hand in round four that left Figueroa on the deck for several minutes. Time was 1:46. Bailey is now in line to challenge IBF world champion Juan Urango.
Heavyweight Cedric “The Boz” Boswell (29-1, 23 KOs), newly signed by DiBella Entertainment, stopped Harold Sconiers (15-20, 10 KOs) in the opening round. Boswell recently knocked out undefeated Roman Greenberg and now looks to take his career to the next level with DBE.
Highly touted heavyweight Tor Hamer (5-0, 4 KOs) went the distance for the first time, winning a four round unanimous nod over Kelsey Arnold (1-2-2). Arnold survived a vicious early assault go go the full route. Scores were 40-36 on all cards.
Undefeated Jr., lightweight Mark Davis (12-0, 4 KOs) continued his winning streak with an eight round unanimous nod over Steve Gonzalez (7-2-1, 4 KOs). Scores were 80-72, 80-72, 78-74.
2008 Olympic team alternate Shawn Porter (7-0, 6 KOs) blew out Eloy Suarez (10-5, 5 KOs) in round one of a middleweight bout. Three left hooks ended it at 2:59.
