Zab leads veterans' victory march

Paris, previously undefeated, dropped to 26-1; 15.
On the same card former WBC light-heavyweight and IBF cruiserweight champion Tomasz Adamek contributed to a good night for the veterans when he beat Nagy Aguilera on points over ten rounds.
In his first fight since being stopped by Vitali Klitschko in a bout for the WBC heavyweight belt, Adamek improved his record to 45-2; 28. Aguilera’s dropped to 17-7; 12.
Bryant Jennings remained undefeated and improved to 13-0; 6 when he stopped former WBO heavyweight champion Sergei Liakhovich (25-5; 16) in the ninth round.
Another seasoned fighter, Enzo Maccarinelli, proved his durability when he beat Shane McPhilbin over twelve rounds in Wolverhampton, England.
The former WBO cruiserweight champion had to come back from knockdowns in the first and third rounds to improve his record to 35-5, with 27 knockouts.
Shane McPhilbin dropped to 8-3; 5 when the scores come in – 115-111, 115-110 and 116-111.
In Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, Nate Campbell, a 40-year-old former world champion, moved his record to 35-9-1; 26 when he stopped junior welterweight Victor Cayo (27-3; 19) in the ninth round.
In Sonora, Mexico, WBA flyweight champion Hernan Marquez improved his record to 33-2; 25 by beating a late replacement, Richie Mepranum (25-3-1; 5) on points over ten rounds in a non-title bout after Rodel Mayol had withdrawn. The scores were 95-93, 96-92 and 97-91.
However, in Atlantic City, heavyweight Tye Fields came up short against a less experienced man.
