Last night, Thompson Boxing Promotions presented the third edition of their popular 3.2.1. Boxing series of 2021. The 3-card event took place at the Omega Products International Event Center in Corona, CA. In the 8-round main event, super lightweight prospect, Michael “The West Texas Warrior” Dutchover (15-1, 10 KOs), who is co-promoted with Banner Promotions, won a hard-fought unanimous decision against a game, Ivan Leon Benitez (14-5-1, 6 KOs). Dutchover outworked Benitez in every round but had to fend off the constant attack he was facing throughout the entire fight. Dutchover showed he has the skillset to box and fight on the inside when things got rough. Benitez showed a lot of heart, but never was in control of the fight. Scorecards read 80-72 twice and 78-74
“This was my first fight in almost a year, and I felt I had some rust to shake off, but overall, I’m happy with my performance,” said Dutchover. “Benitez came to fight as I expected, and I did what I had to do to get the win. Now its time to get right back in the ring and finish of the rest of this year with some good wins. I have a big fight coming up in September back in my home state of Texas that I’m looking forward too. I’ll be ready to go.”
In the 6-round co-feature super welterweights, Richard “Cool Breeze” Brewart Jr. (10-0, 4 KOs) and Donte Stubbs (6-2, 2 KOs) gave the fans six hard fought rounds of action. Scores were 60-54 twice, and 58-56 for Brewart Jr
In the opening 6-round featherweight bout, Jose "Tito" Sanchez (7-0, 5 KOs) defeated Andrew Strode (6-1, 1 KO) by way of TKO at the 1:40 mark of round three.
