David Stevens Julian Gonzalez and Atif Oberlton Clean House!
In an action-packed super middleweight battle, David “Dynamite” Stevens (12-0, 9 KOs) scored a sensational knockout over Sean “Silky” Hemphill (14-1, 8 KOs). This was not the typical boxer versus puncher fight as both men showed off good boxing skills. Hemphill boxed well and landed body shots as Stevens came forward with power shots in a nip-and-tuck battle. It was a close fight as fans stood cheering watching both men fight in a test of wills. Dynamite lived up to the name by dropping Hemphill twice and stopping him in the final round with two seconds remaining.
ATIF OBERLTON PUT A BOXING CLINIC OVER ARTEM BRUSOV
In a light heavyweight battle between two prospects, Atif Oberlton (8-0, 6 KOs) put on a boxing clinic against Artem Brusov (12-1, 11 KOs). After a slow start, Oberlton used the most effective punch in boxing to perfection, the jab. His jab and straight left hand were money throughout the fight. Moreover, his footwork and ability to maintain control of the match evidenced tremendous discipline. Oberlton’s counterpunches stopped the aggression of Brusov who was trying to make it a dogfight. When the final bell sounded, one judge had it 79-73, and two had it 78-74 for Oberlton. 3Kings Boxing agrees with the first scorecard.
JULIAN GONZALEZ REMAINS UNDEFEATED AFTER A BIG STOPPAGE VICTORY
On a fight card that featured all undefeated fighters, junior lightweight prospect Julian Gonzalez (9-0-1, 9 KOs) kicked things off with a stoppage over Rosalindo Morales (9-1, 2 KOs). Gonzalez came out and went right-hand crazy against the southpaw opponent. He scored an early knockdown and continued to pour on a buffet of right hands that had Morales on wobbly legs. Finally, in the fourth round, the referee was forced to finally stop the fight after Gonzalez landed a barrage of unanswered punches. The young man nicknamed “Gift” showed off those skills to the enjoyment of the home crowd.
