In a walk-out 10 round heavyweight bout at the Galen Center in Los Angeles, Eric “Drummer Boy” Molina (21-2, 15KO) and DaVarryl “A Touch Of Sleep” Williamson (27-8, 23KO) lived up to Williamson’s nickname by putting the crowd to sleep for 3.5 rounds before Molina finally came to life in the fourth round landing some perfectly placed shots on the 45-year-old one time world title challenger. There was good two-way action in the fifth round but the referee was very quick to stop the bout at 2:39 of the fifth round after Molina landed a hard right hand. The stoppage seemed very premature, although Molina appeared on his way to victory over Williamson who had not fought since June 2012 and fought just twice in the past 4.5 years. Molina, a one time loser to Chris Arreola by first round knockout, wins his third bout in a row.
U.S. Olympian, Abel Ramos (9-0-2, 5 KOs) was lucky to keep his unbeaten record intact following a battering he took from once-defeated Levan Ghvacichava (11-1-1, 8 KO) from the Republic of Georgia. Ramos was a bloody mess and Ghvaamichava controlled the action for the majority of the bout yet seemed to get the short end of the stick as the result was a majority decision draw with scores of 57-57, 57-57 and 55-59. Incredibly, the one dissenting judge actually had it four rounds to two in favor of Ramos.
