Image result for wilder vs stiverne 2This past Saturday November 4th 2017, was not a pleasant night for WBC Heavyweight challenger Bermane Stiverne (25-3-1, 21 KO’s), as he was brutally knocked out in the first round by Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 Ko’s).  Earlier in the night, Sergey Lipinets (13-0, 10 KO’s) won the vacant IBF Junior Welterweight title, when he defeated Akihiro Kondo (29-7-1, 16 KO’s) via unanimous decision.  Also in the co-feature, Shawn Porter (28-2-1, 17 KO’s) and Adrian Granados (18-6-2, 12 KO’s) engaged in an all out war, with Porter ultimately getting the unanimous decision victory over Granados.  Porter bull rushed Granados early in the fight, and then Granados decided to bully the bully, by relentlessly coming forward.  It was too little too late however, as Porter got the win over a distraught Granados.

The main event was pure fireworks, although it was a very short show.  Wilder came out strong in the first round, flashing his lightning quick jab.  He was patient until he saw an opening in Stiverne’s guard, and them WHAM… straight right hand from Wilder that put Stiverne down on his back side.  Stiverne would get up however, but would go right back down from a left hook right cross nomination from Wilder.  Once again, Stiverne would get up, but with no legs underneath him and Wilder knew it.  He ran up on Stiverne, and hit him with a clubbing right, followed by a left uppercut, and another right that put Stiverne down for good.  The referee would call a halt to the fight with 1 second left in the first round.  After the fight, Wilder would directly call out Anthony Joshua, to unify all of their belts.  Here is a look at round 1 of the fight:

Image result for santa cruz vs avalosThis past Saturday night October 14th 2017, Premier Boxing Champions was on the air with a triple header.  Antonio DeMarco (33-6-1, 24 KO’s) pulled off a huge upset when he knocked out the previously undefeated Eddie Ramirez (17-1, 11 KO’s).  Abner Mares (31-2-1, 15 KO’s) also defeated Andres Gutierrez (35-2-1, 25 KO’s), when he pitched a shutout through 10 rounds before the fight was stopped in the 10th round.  The skill level difference was apparent from the opening bell.  Mares was the quicker and more skilled fighter, as he peppered Gutierrez with shot after shot in all 10 rounds.  In the 10th, Mares got rid of Gutierrez, after the doctor took a look at the cut over his eye that was just gushing blood.  Gutierrez was upset, but ultimately unable to continue.

The main event was more of the same, as Leo Santa Cruz (34-1-1, 19 KO’s) absolutely decimated Chris Avalos (27-6, 20 KO’s) in 8 rounds of non stop action.  Santa Cruz hurt Avalos bad in the 4th round, and it looked like Avalos was going to hit the canvas.  Avalon, who is known for having the hardest head and toughest chin in boxing, somehow stayed on his feet and made it out of the round.  Rounds 5-7 were more of the same, as Avalos just kept taking huge shots from Santa Cruz.  Leo would get the TKO victory in the 8th.  Avalon looked like a straight up bobble head in the 8th round, and after an accumulation of punishment, the referee decided to stop the fight, giving Santa Cruz the TKO victory.
