Karmazin, Espino victorious!

By Francisco Salazar & Rocco Morales at ringside

WBO #6/WBC #10 middleweight Roman Karmazin (38-3-1, 24 KOs) scored a seventh round TKO over former world title challenger Antwun Echols (31-10-4, 27 KOs) on Saturday night at the Playboy Mansion in Beverly Hills, California. Echols dropped Karmazin in round five, but the Russian came back strong in rounds six and seven, finally getting a stoppage with an accumulation of punches. Referee Wayne Hedgepeth waved it off at 1:52
WBC #6 middleweight Miguel Espino (20-2-1, 9 KOs) of “Contender: Season One” fame scored a sixth round TKO over former world champion Alejandro Garcia (26-5-1, 23 KOs). Espino dropped Garcia in rounds four and five. After a competitive round six, Garcia failed to come out for the next round citing a hand injury.
Heavyweight Andre Fedosov (19-1, 15 KOs) needed just 70 seconds to demolish Francisco Taz Mireles (5-3, 0 KOs). Two body shots ended it.
In an upset, super middleweight Joe Mills (6-3-1, 1KO) won a four-rounder over Benjamin Diaz (9-2-1, 6KOs). 40-36 on all cards.
Featherweight Alejandro Lopez (11-0, 3 KO’s) won an eight round unanimous decision over Yorgly Herrera (21-8, 15 KO’s). Lopez was the busier and more accurate fighter. Lopez staggered Herrera with a left hook to the temple, but Herrera held on. Herrera pressed the action, but Lopez was content to outbox his opponent. All three judges scored the bout 79-73.
Super Lightweight Prentice Brewer (11-0-1, 6 KO’s) won a hard-fought four round unanimous decision over Lowell Brownfield (11-5-1, 4 KO’s). The southpaw Brownfield had his moments early, but the more-skilled Brewer controlled most of the action. Although all three judges scored the bout 40-36, they did not reflect the competitiveness of the bout.
Super Middleweight Poppies Martinez (3-0, 1 KO) won a four round unanimous decision over tough, wild-swinging Jovanni Rubio (6-10, 4 KO’s). Rubio had his moments, but Martinez controlled the action. Scores were 40-36, 40-36, and 39-37 for Martinez.
In a battle of unbeaten Super Middleweights, Joe Schilling (1-0-1, 1 KO) and Tyrell Hendrick (2-0-1, 1 KO) fought to a technical draw after the second round. Hendrick scored two knockdowns over Schilling in the first round, but was deducted a point after the first knockdown for hitting Schilling as he was down. Schilling, who has fought in mixed martial arts, was deducted a point for using his elbows in the second round. The bout was halted because of a cut above the right eye of Hendrick due to an accidental headbutt.
