This past Friday night April the 29th, on Premier Boxing Champions on Spike, undefeated rising star Jonathan Guzman (21-0, 21 KO’s) defeated Daniel Rosas (17-3-1, 11 KO’s) in the IBF Super Bantamweight eliminator by 8th round TKO.  After 8 rounds of grueling action, the fight was stopped in the corner between the 8th and 9th rounds.  Anthony Dirrell (29-1-1, 23 KO’s) and Andre Dirrell (25-2, 16 KO’s) were both victorious as well.  Anthony over Caleb Truax (25-2-2, 16 KO’s) by 1st round TKO, and Andre over Blake Caparello (22-2-1, 6 KO’s) by unanimous decision victory.

Anthony Dirrell made quick work of tough opponent Caleb Truax.  Dirrell looked like he was coming out slow to feel his opponent out in the first round.  He jabbed here and there and just watched Truax in the first minute of the round.  In the second minute of the round, Dirrell would land a vicious straight right hand that shook Truax.  With no legs under him, Truax would eat another right, followed by a left hook, and finished off with a looping overhand right that put him down for the first time.  True would get up, but he was already done.  Dirrell would be on the attack immediately, landing a straight right and left hook combination that put Truax down again.  The referee would waive the fight off, as Truax was on dream street.  Anthony Dirrell gets his career back ob track with a 1st round TKO victory, and caps it off with a beautiful backflip.

In the main event of the evening, Andre Dirrell defeated Blake Caparello via unanimous decision.  After telling the media that he has basically thrown out the southpaw stance from his arsenal, Dirrell came out fighting lefty.  In the second round, after starting off conventional, he would switch southpaw again, and get knocked down by a Caparello left hand.  From the third round on, Blake Caparello pretty much spent the rest of the fight on the ropes or trapped in the corner.  With not enough power to make Dirrell respect him, Caparello was getting beat up.  towards the end of the fight, Dirrell was putting together 5, 6, and 7 punch combinations that just overwhelmed the Australian fighter.  Dirrell goes on to win on all 3 scorecards by a score of 98-91.
