It was a clean sweep of the scorecards for undefeated cruiserweight Denton Daley (9-0 5KO) who posted three identical 100-90 markers over veteran Richard Hall (30-12 28KO) at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Toronto. The annual show presented by Bullion Boxing as a fund raiser for “Right to Play” charity to help underprivileged children in Africa. Daley captures the vacant NABF title with decisive victory. It was the first time past six rounds for Daley who remained in control throughout. For the 41 year-old Hall, it marked the fourth loss in a row. Daley is expected to return June 1st at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga.
Ghislain Maduma (13-0 9KO) remained perfect as the lightweight scored a stoppage win over Josafat Perez (13-5-1 8KO) at :29 of the 10th and final round. A left hook to the body ended things for the Montreal fighter Maduma over Perez who was spent and had nothing left. Maduma captures the vacant WBC Continental Americas title with the victory.
Cruiserweight Chukwunoso Okafor (3-1-1 1KO) suffered his first career defeat losing a 39-37, 39-37, 39-38 decision to the hands of Benito Quiroz (8-2 7KO).
