Carl Frampton came out of the blocks in round on of his ten round comeback against Horacio Garcia looking like a man possessed, with no ring rust evident as he countered spitefully and used that momentum to spring attacks at his opponent. However, Carl tired as the rounds went on and Garcia showed the heart and chin of an elite level fighter, having periods of the fight where Frampton looked in trouble.
A slip by Frampton was ruled a knockdown which made the finish even more tense, and the two men left everything in the ring in round ten. It was a much tougher test for Frampton, 24-1 (14), than most had anticipated, and scores of 98-93, 97-93, 96-93, flattered the home fighter a little. Hellraiser Boxing had Carl winning by two points, and Garcia, 33-4-1 (24), should leave Northern Ireland with his head held high. A hard comeback fight, but Frampton is an ambitious man and will no doubt look even higher up the Featherweight food chain next year.
Jamie Conlan's bravery should be admired after he ran into the 8st 3lb wrecking ball that is Jerwin Ancajas, 29-1-1 (19). Conlan, 19-1 (11) was under the cosh from round one of this fight for Ancajas' IBF world super flyweight title, going down repeatedly when hit to the body. Eventually a battered and bruised Conlan was waved unfit to continue by referee Steve Gray in round six. Already seven and eight points down on the judges' cards, it was an act of mercy which will save Conlan for another run at the world belts. Ancajas is a frightening puncher for a super flyweight, and it would be wonderful to see him back in the UK for a unification with WBA champion Kal Yafai.
The all South African fight for Zolani Tete's WBO world bantamweight title looked like a mismatch on paper, Siboniso Gonya had only had twelve fights, and had never left Africa to compete professionally. Nobody could have predicted what unfolded. The bell for the start of round one was still ringing in the ears as Gonya walked towards Tete, who let loose a right hook through the guard of Gonya and onto his chin. Siboniso, now 11-2 (5), was out cold on the canvas, as Tete, 26-3 (21), celebrated a record quick win at world level. Tete and Frank Warren want Belfast's Ryan Burnett next year, easier said than done though one suspects.
Earlier on the bill, three time Olympian Paddy Barnes, 5-0 (1), outgunned Eliecer Quezada, 21-7-3 (8) for the vacant WBO Inter-Continental flyweight title. Barnes looked impressive, showcasing fast reflexes and hands, and a hitherto unseen punching power. Quezada was halted in the sixth. Also displaying a newfound viscousness was Jonjo Carroll, 15-0 (2), who took the vacant IBF Inter-Continental super featherweight belt with a third round stoppage of Humberto de Santiago, 15-5-1 (11). Jonjo had Humberto against the ropes, and when the Mexican began reeling under Carroll's shots, referee Phil Edwards correctly called an end.
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
Julian Williams, 24-1-1 (15), continued his comeback from his knockout loss to Jermall Charlo in December last year, beating veteran Ishe Smith, 29-9 (12), via a unanimous decision- 97-93, 98-92, 99-91. 39 year old Smith is a seasoned pro and gave a good account of himself, but Williams held out and will be looking back up the super welterweight division once again next year.
Ontario, California, USA
Unbeaten welterweight prospect Giovanni Santillan, 23-0 (13), retained his WBO NABO welterweight title in California on Friday night. Dodzi Kemeh, 19-2 (17), can punch but southpaw Santillan landed crunching left uppercuts throughout. At the end of the fourth round a dazed Kemeh walked to a neutral corner instead of his own, prompting an examination by the doctor and subsequently his being ruled unfit to continue.
The welterweight division is talent rich, and Santillan will be looking to get fights next year which push him towards the mega money.
