Stan Martyniouk (13-1, 2 KOs) led a dominant evening for local pro boxing prospects by posting a unanimous eight-round decision over David Rodela (16-9-3, 7 KOs) of Oxnard in their lightweight main event Saturday at the Red Lion Woodlake Hotel in Sacramento, California. There were no knockdowns, but the three judges favored Martyniouk by comfortable scores.

In other bouts, in front of an announced crowd of 1,300, super-bantamweight Roman Morales (16-0, 8 KOs) of Monterey knocked out Lorenzo Trejo (33-27-1, 20 KOs) of Mexico two minutes into the first round and heavyweight Yohan Banks (7-8-3, 3 KOs) of Redwood City won by a TKO at 1:59 of the first round over Bomani Parker (14-8-1, 8 KOs) of Richmond.

Morales’ fight was billed as the eight-round co-feature.

Other area fighters prevailing were junior lightweight Guy Robb (12-1, 4 KOs), who won by a technical knockout 40 seconds into the third round over Roberto Ventura (3-4, 1 KO) of Mexico; light heavyweight Mike Guy (6-1-1, 4 KOs), who defeated Jose Alvarez (3-2, 0 KOs) of Fresno by unanimous decision in six rounds; and lightweight Will Walters (1-3) who earned his first win at the expense of fellow local Andre Kim (4-4, 1 KO) via a unanimous four-round decision.

A scheduled pro women’s boxing bout was scrapped because of an injury to one of the participants.

Promoter Nasser Niavaroni, whose card also included amateur boxing to open the show, said he was encouraged by the turnout and planned to hold more shows at the Woodlake, formerly the Radisson Hotel.
