WBA #7 cruiser Denton Daley still undefeated

By Dave Spencer at ringside

Cruiserweight Denton Daley (12-0 8KO) remained undefeated and went twelve rounds for the first time, sweeping them all with 120-108 (x3) decision win over Andres Taylor (21-6-2 8KO). The #7 ranked cruiserweight (WBA) successfully made the second defence of his NABA title and was dominant over all twelve rounds. Daley complained of a bad right hand after the fight, “I didn’t have a right hand, it definitely was a factor.” When asked after the contest what the 31-year-old wants next, Daley told the crowd of 5,198 “I want a world title.”

Samuel Vargas (16-1-1 8KO) fought a hard-fought clench filled contest, battling back from his only career defeat and won a 79-73, 78-74, 77-75 unanimous decision over Lyes Chaibi (11-6-1 1KO) of France. Vargas had a hard time finding distance for much of the contest as he crowded Chaibi who spent most of the evening on the ropes. It was a frustrating evening for the light-middleweight who was finally able to let his hands go and mount a solid body attack over the course of the final three rounds.

Aurey Cox was successful in his pro-debut scoring two knockdowns on his way to a 40-34, 40-34, 39-35 win over John Patsidiotis (1-1) in light-middleweight action.

Middleweight Ryan Young (3-0 3KO) wasted no time in disposing of Mark Cleary (0-1) in an all-Ontario match-up of middleweights. Young after going to the body early before scoring with a right upstairs that flattened Cleary. Young had no difficulty in adding two more to secure the victory with the official time coming at 2:17.

Sandy Tsagouris (11-2 5KO) returned from a three-year absence and didn’t miss a beat as she stopped Yolanda Segura (16-7 10KO) at 1:16 of the 3rd round. Tsagouris scored with a strong right to end the 2nd and upped the pace in the third where she pinned her Mexican opponent on the ropes and offered up a barrage that forced referee Mark Simmons to step in and stop the contest.

Lightweight Mike McWilliams (2-0) got the action underway at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga with a 40-36, 39-37, 38-38 majority decision win over provincial rival James Bishop (0-2).
