Upset: Lupo shocks Witter

In his first fight since August 2009, former WBC super lightweight champion Junior Witter (37-4-2, 22 KOs) shockingly lost a ten round majority decision against Victor Lupo (19-1-2, 9 KOs) in a welterweight bout on Saturday night at the Hershey Centre, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. Witter frustrated Lupo with his constant clinching, but ran out of gas late in the fight. Scores were 97-92, 96-94, 95-95. Witter was deducted a point for holding in round nine and spent a lot of time on the canvas totally gassed. With the win, Lupo claims the vacant WBC Silver International title.

Lightweight Logan McGuinness (14-0-1, 7 KOs) scored a fourth round KO over Hector Julio Avila (47-6, 42 KOs) to retain his NABA title. McGuinness dropped the 38-year-old Avila in round two and finished him with a hook to the body at 2:46 of the fourth.

Unbeaten welterweight Samuel Vargas (7-0-2, 1 KO) and Tebor Brosch (6-3-5, 2 KOs) fought to a ten round draw in a bout for the vacant NABA Canada title. Scores were 96-94, 95-95, 95-95.
