WBO junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (25-0, 12 KOs) retained his title via controversial third TKO against former unified lightweight champion Nate Campbell (33-6-1, 25 KOs) on Saturday night at the Agua Caliente Casino, Rancho Mirage, California. In round three, the larger Bradley began asserting himself when an accidental head butt seemingly cut Campbell over his left eye. Between rounds three and four, Campbell said he couldn’t see and referee David Mendoza waved the fight off awarding it to Bradley. Campbell argued to no avail that the result should have been a no decision.

In a clash for the WBC super lightweight title, unbeaten Devon Alexander (19-0, 12 KOs) claimed the vacant belt by making former champion Junior Witter (37-3-2, 22 KOs) quit after round eight. Alexander was in command throughout, staggering Witter several times before Witter suddenly called it quits after being warned by referee Lou Moret for holding between rounds eight and nine. At the time of the stoppage Alexander was ahead 80-72, 79-73, 79-73. Witter later claimed an elbow injury. The WBC had threatened to not sanction the bout due to the selection of officials by the California Athletic Commission, but later relented.
In a major upset, unheralded Heavyweight Demetrius King stopped Bowie Tupou in the second round of a scheduled eight round fight. As both fighters traded hard shots in the first round, King (15-17, 13 KO’s) dropped Tupou with a right hand to the head at the end of the round. Tupou was on shaky legs to start the second round and was dropped by an accumulation of punches by King. Tupou (18-1, 14 KO’s) tried to fight back, but was on unsteady legs against the ropes, prompting referee Ray Corona to step in and stop the bout at 52 seconds.
Female Bantamweight Kaleisha West (11-1, 2 KO’s) won a hard-fought six round unanimous decision over Rolanda Andrews (8-8-1, 4 KO’s). Both fighters had their moments at the beginning of the fight, but West began to dominate the action as the bout progressed. All three judges scored the bout in favor of West, with scores of 59-55, 59-55, and 58-56.
Lightweight John Jackson (15-1, 13 KOs) scored two knockdowns over Carlos Hernandez in his 10 round bout, but settled for a unanimous decision victory. Jackson scored a knockdown each in the seventh and final round over the aggressive Hernandez (14-8-1, 5 KOs). All three judges scored the bout 97-91, 97-91, and 97-92.
Featherweight Abraham Lopez needed just 16 seconds to stop Edward Utorov in a scheduled six round bout. Lopez (8-0, 7 KOs) landed a right to the head, followed by a left hook to the body. Referee Ray Corona waved the fight over after Utorov (7-11, 3 KOs) lay sprawl on the canvas.
Super Bantamweight Jonathan Arellano (2-0, 1 KO) stopped Fernando Moreno (pro debut) in the second round of a scheduled four round fight. Arellano dropped Moreno once in the first and twice in the second before referee Ray Corona stopped the action at 2:49.
