Luca Cinqueoncie Tested By Joseph Maigwisya; Sarah Bormann Decisions Bustillos
In the main event, light heavyweight boxer Luca “Rocky” Cinqueoncie (17-0, 12 KO’s) successfully bested Joseph Maigwisya (7-1, 4 KO’s) by way of sixth round stoppage. The first four rounds would see Maigwisya provide the pressure by constantly pushing forward behind a pesky jab. Throughout the bout, Maigwisya clowned, postured and danced at just about every opportunity.
This rapidly changed when Cinqueoncie dropped him in the fifth with a hard right hand. Luckily there was no great damage done when Rocky clobbered Maigwisya with another right when his knee was down. Regardless of the foul, Maigwisya would make it to the sixth only to have his corner bizarrely throw the towel in. Given how competitive he’d been throughout, and seemingly not very damaged, it seemed rather odd to stop the fight at that point. In any case, Luca “Rocky” Cinqueoncie emerged with his undefeated record intact.
SARAH BORMANN SURVIVES THE BODY ATTACK BY YADIRA BUSTILLOS
In this collision of minimumweight fighters, Sarah “Baby Face” Bormann (16-0, 7 KOs) took on Yadira Bustillos (7-1, 0 KO) to decide the fate of the Interim WBC minimumweight title. When all was said and done, Bormann walked away with a close but unanimous decision victory with the WBC belt. From the very outset of the duel, both women went right after one another in the center of the ring for the majority of the fight.
It was quickly evident that Bustillos was determined to wear Baby Face down with a mean body attack. She focused on the belly so much so that Bormann was forced to adopt a very tight closed guard. From that stance, Baby Face had success on offense by landing counterpunches on Bustillos. While Bustillos was generally the busier fighter, it was hard to overlook how much Bormann’s shots pushed her around. To her credit, Bustillos never appeared hurt or buzzed, but clearly the judges preferred the work of Bormann, who prevailed with the scores of 97-93, 96-94, and 97-94.
