Image result for abner mares vs jesus cuellarLast night on ShowTime Championship Boxing, Abner Mares (30-2-1, 15 KO’s) defeated Jesus Cuellar (28-2, 21 KO’s), and captured the WBA Featherweight title.  This was potentially Mares’ last opportunity to capture a title, and he delivered in exciting fashion.  The first round was all fire works, as both men came out swinging for the fences, trying to dispense of the other man early.  Cuellar got the best of Mares in the beginning of the fight, takin 3 of the first 4 rounds on my score card.  Mares found the adjustment to Cuellar’s attack however, in the form of the straight right hand.

Cuellar was trying to push the action after the 4th round, and every time he leaned in with the left hook, Mares would counter with the right.  Mares had to calm down and not get into a brawl with Cuellar, who by nature is a brawler, and that it exactly what he did.  Sharp counters from Mares slowed the pace a bit and gave the better boxer (Mares) the advantage.  Mares’ punches were quicker and more accurate from the middle of the fight on, and totally took the bullying mentality away from Cuellar.  In the 11th round, Mares was able to drop Cuellar to the Canvas, and if it was close on any scorecard, the knockdown put the fight out of reach for Cuellar.  Im not quite sure how it ended in a split decision, because Mares definitively won the fight.  Kermit Bayless scored the fight 115-112 for Cuellar (which was totally bogus), while Dave Moretti scored it 116-111 for Mares and Max Deluca scored it 117-110 for Mares.

Also Jermall Charlo (25-0, 19 KO’s) defeated Jullian Williams (22-1-1, 14 KO’s) by 5th round KO.  Charlo hit Williams with a vicious uppercut which put him down, and knocked him out with a hook later in the round to retain his IBF Junior Middleweight title.

Saturday night on Showtime Boxing Special Edition, the fireworks were on display.  The night went from a pretty even matchup, to a fight of the year candidate, and then to a completely one sided fight.

In the main event, Jullian Williams (22-0, 14 KO’s) defeated Marcello Matano (16-2, 5 KO’s) via TKO in the 7th round of a scheduled 12 rounder.  In the co-feature, Avtandil Khurtidze (32-2-2, 20 KO’s) defeated up and coming prospect Antoine Douglas (19-1-1, 13 KO’s) via TKO 10th round of a scheduled 10, and in the first fight Tony Harrison (23-1, 18 KO’s) defeated Fernando Guerrero (28-4, 20 KO’s) via TKO 6th round of a scheduled 10.

Jullian Williams was simply just too skilled a boxer for Marcello Matano to handle.  This was Matano’s first fight in the United States, and it showed.  Marano’s herky jerky style surprised Williams at first, and looked like it was going to be slightly difficult to handle, but his boxing skills were simply lacking.  Julian Williams would of course adjust, and he ended up winning every round in the fight.  Matano got nailed in the 7th round, and even though he didn’t go down, he was out of his feet.  With no legs under him, and no clue where he was at the moment, the referee would stop the fight.  Jillian Williams stays undefeated, and he is now the #1 contender for Jermell Charlo’s IBF Junior Welterweight Championship.

Tony Harrison started off on fire from the opening bell.  The speed difference between the two fighters was evident from the beginning.  Fernando Guerrero’s only chance was to make this one an ugly inside fight.  Guerrero failed to do that in the beginning of the fight, and even apologized to his corner for not fighting smarter.  In the middle rounds, he would do what he was told, and even win some of the rounds.  Harrison’s speed would again take over however, and he would knock Guerrero out in the 6th round.

Is Atvandil Khurtidze the new modern day Mike Tyson?  It sure did look like it when he defeated rising star, Antoine Douglas on Saturday night.  He even came out to the ring in the black shorts and black boots, just like Tyson, the fighter he grew up idolizing.  This fight absolutely stole the show, and has a definite chance to win fight of the year.  If there was ever a fighter that stuck to his game plan and would not abandon it no matter what, it was Khurtidze on Saturday night.  He dropped Douglas in the second round with over two minutes to go.  Douglas would somehow miraculously make it out of the round, and continue to fight on.  Douglas would get dropped twice more later on in the fight, and the last 2 rounds, he was on dream street.  In the 10th, Douglas would get nailed again, and the referee would have to stop the fight.  The fact that Douglas was able to fight through all the knockdowns, and still make it a competitive fight in the middle rounds, was a win in itself.  If you had the pleasure of watching this fight, you too were a winner on Saturday night.
