Tevin Farmer picked up his 12th consecutive victory and beat another previously unbeaten fighter. Farmer defeated Angel Luna in eight one-sided rounds in a junior lightweight fight on Saturday.
From the opening bell, Farmer used Luna’s aggressiveness against him, tagging him at will with hooks, straight left hands to the head, and thudding shots to the body – Luna didn’t seem to learn either – as he continued to rush at Farmer expecting him to change his style, it didn’t work.
Farmer was simply too smart; too fast, and too slick for the Dominican fighter. Farmer won by unanimous decision with two scores of 80-72 (a shutout) and 79-72. Farmer improved to 19-4-1 while Luna dropped to 10-1-1.
Junior Featherweights Danny Aquino and Ryan Kielczweski went at each other for eight hard-fought rounds, which ended in a split decision for Aquino.
In the opening rounds, Kielczweski played it safe, fighting from the outside and landing clean counter punches to the head of a frustrated Aquino. As the fight progressed, Kielczweski began to tire from the relentless pressure and Aquino capitalized with left hooks to the body.
Although Kielczweski made a short comeback in the middle rounds, the body shots began to take a toll, and Aquino had ‘The Polish Prince’ on the run for the remainder of the fight. Aquino escaped with a split decision victory, handing Kielczweski his first defeat as a professional, dropping to 22-1. Aquino improved to 17-2.
“Gravedigger” Pablo Munguia had nothing to lose, and it showed in his drive to defeat Tony Harrison, but Harrison put the nail in the coffin with a short right hand in the main event.
Harrison, who at 6’1, six inches taller than Munguia, worked from the outside as the shorter Munguia tried to walk him down on the inside. Harrison stepped back and countered Munguia with a short right hand. Although it was not particularly a hard punch, Munguia, who came into the fight in poor physical condition, walked right into it.
After taking a beating at the end of the second round, Munguia was consulted by the ringside doctor, but the fight was allowed to continue – it didn’t last for long – as Harrison came out swinging. Referee Arthur Mercante Jr. was forced to step in and stop the fight just 13 seconds after the ring of the bell.
Harrison stayed undefeated and improved to 21-0 while Munguia dropped to 20-7. It was Harrison’s 18th knockout in 21 fights and his 10th consecutive.
Overall, the card was decent. However, the main event was far from a marquee event. Hopefully the next Friday Night Fights event, which commences in two weeks, will have a better entree for the fans.
