The first feature bout of the night matched Youngstown, Ohio’s Jake “The Bull” Giuriceo against Peter Oluoch from Kenya.  Giuriceo started the opening rounds as the clearl aggressor, investing heavily to the body of Oluoch.  Rounds three and four were closer, as action started to heat up.  There were several clashes of heads as both fighters engaged.   Just before the bell rang marking the end of the 5th round, Giuriceo suffered a bad cut from an accidental head-butt.  The ringside doctor immediately called a halt to the bout after realizing the gash was to the bone, leaving a decision in the hands of the judges at ringside.  The judges scored the fight a controversial technical split decision victory for Peter Oluoch.

 

In the final undercard bout of the night Pittsburgh’s fan favorite Monty Meza-Clay (33-3) faced rugged veteran Emmanuel “The Butcher” Lucero (26-12-1) in a scheduled 8 rounder.  From the opening bell neither fighter wasted time getting to know each other as they both seemed more than willing to trade punches in the middle of the ring.  Lucero capitalized on a good body shot in the first round and continued to be the aggressor through most of the second round as well.  As the fight wore on, Meza-Clay appeared to come on stronger, forcing Lucero to walk through bombs to get inside.  They continued to fight in a phone booth through the middle rounds, ending the sixth in a very heated exchanged followed by taunting that forced the referee to separate them.  The smaller Meza-Clay peppered Lucero with some good inside combinations in the seventh and eighth rounds but seemed ineffective against Lucero’s chin.  At the end of 8 rounds, the judges scored the fight a unanimous decision victory for Monty Meza-Clay amidst a frenzied crowd.

 

In an earlier bout, Pittsburgh’s Morgan “Big Chief” Fitch imppoved to 8-0 with a 1st round knockout of Cameron Allen.
