This past weekend, California fight fans were treated to an explosive night of boxing at The Woodland Community Center in Woodland. The five-fight card was presented by Golden Boy Promotions, Don Chargin Productions and Paco Presents. If you missed the live action or the TeleFutura “Sólo Boxeo Tecate” broadcast, below is a summary of the results:
|Vicente Escobedo||Lonnie Smith||KO||1|
|Manuel Avila||David Reyes||Unanimous decision||6|
|Dimitry Chudinov||Paul Mendez||Majority draw||6|
|Jonathan Chicas||Ephraim Martinez||Majority decision||4|
|Harry Gopaul||Payton Boyea||KO||2|
Obviously, the big name on the card was former US Olympian Vicente Escobedo. Escobedo took care of his overmatched opponent with ease, scoring a big 1st round KO. The other two notable fighters on the card were undefeated prospects Manuel Avila and Dimitriy Chudinov. Avila scored a clear UD win, but Chudinov escaped with just a Majority Draw against his opponent.
