For those who did not see the television broadcast or results of this past Friday’s NABF super welterweight title match, here are the results:
Grady Brewer, 153.7, Lawton, Oklahoma W TKO 4 (2:16) over Fernando Guerrero, 152.7, Saulsberry, Maryland. Guerrero our former MW champion gave up that title and came down in weight to fight as a super welter – and just seemed not strong enough at this lower weight to hold off veteran (40+ years old) Brewer. Guerrero started fairly strong but once Brewer, winner of season 2 of the TV series “The Contender”, found the target with his right hands, he sent Guerrero down twice in round 4 when ref Jon Schorle stopped the fight.
judges: Jesus Sandoval (former WBC and NABF SF champion under the name of Jesus Chavez) – 29-28 Guerrero; Perry Hillin – 29-28 Guerrero; David Dealejandro – 30-27 Guerrero.
The show started off with a wild action HW 6 rounder which saw Maurice Bayram and Homero Fonseca slug it out to a draw decision.
Karim Mayfield stopped veteran Stevie Forbes in the first televised fight (welterweights) at 1:03 of the 10th round when Forbes absorbed several hard punches to the head without firing back in return.
Javontae Sparks W SD 4 over Antonio Gamez…decision loudly booed by the spectators.
Cory Yett W KO 1 (0:23) Zach Briones in a 4r welterweight match between two young pros from Austin.
