Paulie Ayala Productions 13th Annual Boxing at the Ballroom at the Renaissance Worthington Hotel:

In the main event super middleweight Samuel Clarkson of Cedar Hill, TX (6-0) easily knocked out Brandon Singleton of Grand Prairie, TX (4-6). The action was light in round one, but Singleton (165-pounds) caught Clarkson (164-pounds) with a left hand that nearly ended the fight in what would have been an huge upset. But in Clarkson took control after the bell rang for the second round, pushing Singleton around the ring and dropping him to end the fight at 2:58 of the second round with a hard right hand.

Atlay Miranda also took home Ayala’s $500 bonus for putting on the Fight of the Night.

In the co-main event, lightweight Maurice ‘Mighty Mo’ Hooker of Dallas (6-0-1) easily knocked out DeAnthony Bonner of Denton, TX (2-1). This fight almost didn’t happen as Hooker weighed-in a pound over and had to lighten his wallet to make the fight.

The Ladies fight of the night was a 137-pound battle that ended with a unanimous decision win, 39-37 on all three judges’ cards, for El Paso’s Jennifer Han (8-1-1) against Arkansas’ Kita Watkins (7-9).

Majority decision for Rayford Johnson (7-8) of Austin against Armin MrKvonovic 38-38, 39-37, 39-37. This fight was more heavyweight dance-off than boxing match as MrKvonovic (4-2-3) made fans dizzy by circling the ring for four rounds, taking a defensive approach and not throwing many blows. Johnson didn’t have the speed or desire to chase the Bosnian Prince so Johnson scored when he could, which proved to be just enough to win.

In a professional debut for both fighters super bantamweight Atlay Miranda of Dallas scored a unanimous decision against Guadalupe Perez of Garland, TX. With no defense and not much more wind Miranda and Perez fought hard for four rounds, both scoring well, but neither fighter could deliver the knockout blow. Ayala told the fighters at Thursday’s weigh-in that the winner of the fight of the night gets an extra $500. Miranda has to be a finalist.

In another professional debut for both fighters, cruiserweight Curtis Howell of Dallas knocked out Tyrone Jackson of Atlanta at 1:37 of the third round.
