Late Results From Ontario
Danny Roman (21-2-1, 7 KOs) pushed his winning streak to thirteen with a sweep of the scorecards against the previously unbeaten Marlon Olea (12-1, 11 KOs) Friday night in the "New Blood" main event from the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, California.
In the co-feature, Giovani Santillan (20-0, 11 KOs) improved on his unbeaten record by knocking out veteran Miguel Angel Mendoza (23-10, 22 KOs) in the fourth round of their scheduled 8-rounder. Mendoza's corner threw in the towel at the 1:26 mark.
Heavyweight Johnny Rice (5-2-1, 3 KOs) out of Los Angeles dropped Mexico's Mario Heredia (14-6, 12 KOs) three times on his way to a fifth round knockout victory. Rice connected in the second and fourth rounds with stiff right hands, which deposited the heavier Heredia on his back.
Los Angeles native Rudy Garcia (4-0, 1 KO) garnered another win in his young career. The bantamweight prospect posted a unanimous decision win over the still winless Joel Cano-Castro (0-4). Garcia dominated the fight, landing a steady jab and power punches seemingly at will. The scorecards tell the story: 40-35, 40-36 twice.
Junior lightweight Michael Dutchover (2-0, 2 KOs) kicked off "New Blood" with a devastating first round knockout of Sergio Campos (0-1). Dutchover bolted out of his corner with a fierce attack that put Campos, who was making his pro debut, on the defensive immediately. Dutchover unloaded power shots to the body and landed a left hook that dropped Campos for good at the :51 mark.
