Cruiserweight Jesse West, of Fruit Heights, Utah, is now 3-0 after scoring a four round decision over Mesquite, Nev.’s Elmer Rivera Saturday night in Ogden, Utah, at the Summit Hotel. Before a standing-room only crowd, West, a former Golden Gloves heavyweight champ, held off a constantly charging Rivera by finding enough opportunities to outbox his opponent and score solid punches. The decision was unanimous.
In a battle of Salt Lake City lightweights, Francisco Jelel Lopez scored a four-round unanimous decision over Lee Tibbitts. The bout was competitive, but the harder-punching Lopez had a consistent edge.
