Orlando Gonzalez Beats Ramiro Cesena; Mimoune & Valsaint Win

In a classic Mexico versus Puerto Rico rivalry, junior lightweight Orlando Gonzalez (21-2, 12KO) earned a tough victory over Ramiro Cesena (16-2-1, 13KO)

This was a shootout from the first ring of the bell as these two fighters went back and forth, trading heavy blows and showing excellent chins throughout the entire fight.

Gonzalez would shift levels at times by switching from fighting on the inside to boxing at mid-range while landing eye-catching counter shots. He started to fight with a rhythm by landing the straight left hand before stepping to the side to land more shoeshine-type punches.

Cesena went to work on the body with vicious hooks both upstairs and downstairs, forcing the Puerto Rican against the ropes. In round nine, the Mexican focused on the body and pummeled Gonzalez from corner to corner.

Fans cheered in appreciation as both men stood and traded more hard shots until the final bell. Two judges scored it 96-94, with one seeing it 97-93 in favor of Gonzalez. 3kingsboxing.com scored it a draw. Despite the ridiculous last scorecard, this fight screams for a rematch, as the fans were the real winners tonight.


With Hall Of Fame Inductee Roy Jones Jr in his corner, junior lightweight Mohamed “The Problem” Mimoune (23-5, 4KO) proved to be a big problem for prospect Steven Galeano (12-1, 9KO).

Coming off a two-fight losing streak, Mimoune came out determined and focused as he used sharp counterpunches to take control of the fight early. The Problem is not known as a power puncher, but he landed a brutal counter-right hook that dropped Galeano, who kept his head on the centerline in round five.

Narrowly surviving the round, Galeano never recovered from that first knockdown. He would taste the canvas three more times in round six before the referee had seen enough and waved off the fight. The young prospect needs to go back to the drawing board and learn to move his head off the centerline.

Mimoune picks up a solid win and will be looking to keep the momentum going


Super middleweight prospect and 2020 Olympain Darrelle “Blast” Valsaint (9-0, 7KO) showed promise with a stoppage over veteran Daniel Aduku (15-4-1, 11KO).

Valsaint put it together in this fight as he shifted gears against Aduku. The young talent tried to work behind the jab but had trouble locating his opponent’s chin, as the veteran applied upper body movement to get inside the jab to land a few decent shots.

Realizing the crafty veteran was hard to hit upstairs, Blast went to the body and found success as a crushing hook to the kidney dropped Aduku in the second round. The Olympian turned up body attack with those vicious hooks that dropped his opponent in rounds three and four.

Despite getting up after a third knockdown, Aduku’s poor body language forced the referee to stop the fight. This was a very good showing, as the young man needs an outing like this to continue creating some buzz.
