Farhood: Kayode graduated

Lateef “Power” Kayode and Chris “The Hitman” Avalos each recorded impressive 10-round unanimous decision victories while Art “Lionheart” Hovhannisyan pulled off an equally impressive knockout upset against previously unbeaten Archie Ray Marquez on an exciting night of fights on ShoBox: The New Generation on SHOWTIME®.

Kayode dominates Godfrey

By Francisco Salazar at ringside

Unbeaten cruiserweight contender Lateef Kayode was taken the distance for the second time in a row, winning a one-sided 10 round unanimous decision over Matt Godfrey. Kayode (17-0, 14 KO’s) dropped Godfrey once in the first, fifth, and ninth rounds. Although Kayode landed the more-telling blows in the fight, the punches at times were not as effective, especially when he would smother himself.
