Fight: Chris Hazimihalis (2-0, 2 KOs) vs. Ramon Ellis  (0-5, O KOs) 

Division: Super Lightweight

Result: Hazimihalis wins by TKO

Detail: Hazimihalis knocked Ellis down early in the first round, but Ellis got back up. Sensing an opportunity to end it, Hazimihalis charged Ellis and pineed him in the corner then pins him, drilling him virtually uncontested with blow after blow. The ref called it at 1:28. 


Fight: Champion Mike Jones (21-0, 17 KOs) vs. Hector Munoz (18-3-1, 11 KOs)

Division: NABA Welterweight Championship

Result: Jones wins the title by TKO.

Detail: Jones promised fireworks and he delivered. Though he definitely came out on top in the first two rounds, Munoz more than held his own, landing several solid shots. While Jones's corner encouraged him to use his jab, it was a powerful 5th round upper cut that changed the fight. It snapped Munoz's head back and he was never the same. Indeed, after several more punishing, unanswered blows, the ref called it.  


Fight: Matt Korobov (11-0, 8 KOs vs. Josh Snyder (8-5-1, 3 KOs)

Division: Middleweight

Result: Korobov by unanimous decision.

Detail: Snyder looked good for much of the fight, especially in round 5. But round 6 was all Korobov, frustrating Snyder's corner, who repeatedly implored their fighter to "take it to the playground"; i.e., throw more punches. It didn't happen. The judges scored it: 79-73, 78-74, and 78-74.


Fight: James Winchester (10-4, 3 KOs) vs. Glen Tapia (6-0, 4 KOs)

Division: Super welterweight

Result: Tapia wins by unanimous decision.

Detail: Tapia looked good from Jump Street, scoring a knockdown with a strong body shot. Though Winchester beat the count, he never regained his footing against Tapia. All three judges scored it 40-35 in Tapia's favor.
