A “capsule” look at last Saturday’s boxing!

By David Martinez


WBO bantamweight champion Jorge Arce avenged a 2009 draw with former titlest Lorenzo Parra with a 5th round knockout win in their non-title fight in Mexicali, BC, Mexico.


WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko won a hard, but unanimous, decision over Dereck Chisora. The bout was held at the Olympiahalle in Munich, Germany.


Paul Williams rebounded from his less than stellar performance in July 2011 against Erislandy Lara to win a one-sided 12 round unanimous decision over Japan’s Nobuhiro Ishida in their junior middleweight bout.


Undefeated IBF light-heavyweight champion Tavoris Cloud reatined his title with a “controversial” 12 round split decision over former WBA champ Gabriel Campillo. The official scorecards were 116-110, 114-112 for Cloud and third card had it 115-111 for Campillo. My “unofficial” scorecard had Campillo winning the fight 114-112.
