After two somewhat even rounds, Ricardo Williams Jr. (15-2, 8 KOs) brutally knocked out Harrison Cuello (18-9-2, 14 KOs) in third round of a welterweight contest Saturday at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio. Williams dropped Cuello three times in the third round, twice with crushing left hands to the jaw with the final knockdown at the 1:50 mark. Huge win for the former 2000 Olympic Silver medalist. This is his fifth consecutive win since his return in June 2008 after a three year layoff.
Rashad Holloway (10-1, 5 KOs) won a unanimous decision over Doel Carrasquillo (12-11-1, 10 KOs) in a junior middleweight six-rounder. It was an outstanding battle which was won on the inside by the fast, short punches of Holloway. Carrasquillo was a step slower but he was very game. The competitive battle kept the crowd of 4137 on their feet cheering throughout. The scores were 78-74, 78-74 and 77-75.
James Countryman (14-1, 8 KOs) won a unanimous decision over K. J. Noons (8-2, 5 KOs) in a six round middleweight bout. It was a terrific toe-to-toe six round war in which Countryman won most of the exchanges but Noons never gave up. The scores were 59-55, 58-56 and 58-56.
Heavyweights David Long (6-1-1, 3 KOs) and Kelsey Arnold (1-1-2, 1 KO) fought to a draw in an entertaining four rounder. The scores were 40-36, 37-39 and 38-38.
Featherweight Jesse Carridine (3-0, 2 KOs) knocked out Ramon Santos at 2:11 of the second round. Santos – who was making his pro debut – was down twice in the second round.
Junior welterweight Terrance Crawford (7-0, 4 KOs) knocked out Lucas Rodas (3-5, 1 KO) at 1:52 of the first round. Rodas was down twice.
This was the second installment of the coast-to-coast “HOMETOWN HEROES TO WORLD CHAMPIONS” series in Cincinnati. Saturday’s event was titled “3 THE HARD WAY” and was promoted by Max Brunis of TMAX Events and Chet Koerner of TKO BOXING Promotions.
