Arreola destroys Abell in 1st round TKO
Former heavyweight title challenger Chris Arreola, 29 years old, made short work when scored a first round TKO destroying lefty Joey Abell, 29 years old, on ESPN Friday Night fights.
Arreola badly hurt Abell right a huge right hand that had Abell staggering and out on his feet. Referee Tony Crebs then jumped and halted the mismatch at 2:18 of the firstround.
It’s a good thing for Arreola that the fight was stopped quickly because he’s been plagued by hand problems in the past year.
This was an important win for Arreola, as he was stopped by Vitali Klitschko in 10 rounds in 2009 for WBC title and beaten by Tomasz Adamek with a majority decision, in two of his last four fights, so to stay in the top 15 and stay within striking range of another title shot.
Arreola has won two consecutive fights after losing to Tomasz Adamek last April.
“The Nightmare” Arreola improved his mark to 30-2-0 (26) while Bell dropped to 27-5-0-1 NC (26).
Josesito Lopez Stops Dallas Jr
In the co-feature, WBC #8 and IBF #10 ranked Josesito Lopez, from Riverside, California, scored a TKO victory in the seventh round over Mike Dallas Jr, from Bakersfield, California, winning the vacant NABF superlightweight title. The fight was waved off by the referee Raul Caiz Jr. at 1:47.
Lopez overcame vertical cut from an unintentional headbutt and steadily roughed up and broke down Dallas, sending him to the deck.
Lopez mauled Dallas Jr in the fifth round. Then continued and kept punching and forced Dallas to retreat.
The sixth round saw Dallas Jr try to resume control but Lopez kept attacking the body. At the end of the round Lopez fired several blows and Dallas slipped to the floor.
Two crushing left hooks hurt Dallas Jr in the seventh. Lopez, 26 years old, hurt Dallas Jr, 24 years old, with a left hook and followed with a quick flurry.
The first left hook stood up Dallas Jr and the second hook had the Bakersfield fighter reeling, and while he stumbled into the corner referee Raul Caiz Jr. stopped the fight. Dallas Jr then stumbled into the ropes and complained about the stoppage but he was falling down.
Lopez raised his mark to 29-3-0 (17) while Dallas Jr fell to 17-1-1 (7).
Shawn Estrada remains unbeaten
2008 U.S. Olympian Shawn Estrada, 11-0-0 (10) of East Los Angeles, California, scored three knockdowns and stopped willing Jon Schmidt, 10-2-0 (6) of Minneapolis, Minnesota, at 1:48 of the first round of a scheduled six-round super middleweight fight.
Estrada had too much firepower and too much skill for Schmidt who was floored early with right hands and left hooks. Schmidt was floored three times and the referee Raul Caiz Jr stopped the bout.
