Vergil Ortiz Jr towers over Samuel Vargas on his way to the stop


Vergil Ortiz Jr had no unexpected issues with Samuel Vargas tonight on DAZN in the Golden Boy return main event on DAZN, stopping Vargas after seven largely one-sided rounds.

Ortiz (16-0, 16 KOs) dismissed Vargas (31-6-2, 14 KOs) after seven rounds, as shown, making him a 16v16 on his professional outings, and looking for a big fight then.

Vargas, 22, called for a fight with WBO welterweight title list Terence “Bud” Crawford, and throws Danny Garcia and Keith Thurman to good extent.,

“I didn’t really notice it because I’m focused on the fight. It didn’t make a huge difference, ”Ortiz said. “If it was eight rounds it would have been worse. I was, like, a solid B +. He was my best opponent to date. I would like to fight someone like Danny Garcia or Keith Thurman. “

Shane Mosley Jr. UD-8 Jeremy Ramos

The scores were 79-73, 80-72, 80-72. As always, Ramos (11-9, 4 KO0 didn’t roll; he’s a regular at Golden Boy, and he gave Shane Jr (16-3, 9 KO) a pretty decent fight, but the athletic ability to Jr was too much.

Mosley, 29, will have to be helped by name for a title shot, to be honest, but in some fight series you can see the natural ability. It’s just really inconsistent. He’s had his hits on “The Contender” and the like, but he’s never really paid his name. You can say this about Ronald Hearns or Hector Camacho Jr or even titlist Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Boxing will help you with a name attached. But that’s what it is. Shane has natural abilities but he is very suspicious.

Seniesa Estrada TKO-1 Miranda Adkins

Let’s be clear here: Adkins, a 42 year old man from Kansas, had nothing to do in the ring with Estrada. Estrada (19-0, 8 KOs) is a legitimate fighter, an amateur background, a solid competition as a pro. She can fight, for real. Adkins (5-1, 5 KOs) can’t. No disrespect. She’s a middle aged woman who has never fought someone who won a professional fight.

And that fight ended when Estrada walked through the ring, threw a volley of punches, and hit Miranda half-cold. seven seconds. Estrada didn’t put on a show while celebrating, she was kind and gracious in the victory. I don’t “hate” neither her nor Miranda Adkins, who took this fight bravely when Jacky Calvo retired due to injury. But it shouldn’t have been sanctioned. Period.

“I give him so much credit and a lot of respect,” Estrada said. “She stepped up and took the fight. My original opponent had a knee injury and she accepted the fight. I had more experience than she – amateur and pro. Once I released my punches, I couldn’t stop. It’s a struggle. I knew it was going to be a knockout, but I didn’t know how long it would take. God bless Adkins. I pray she’s okay.

Hopefully we’ll see Seniesa – once again, a legitimately good fighter – get a title shot soon. She said she would do it at 105, 108 or 112. She is ready and willing and can fight. She deserves better.

Hector Valdez UD-8 Josue Morales

Valdez (13-0, 8 KOs) with a solid win here. The 25-year-old junior featherweight prospect wins virtual shutout, scores 79-73, 80-72, 80-72, over Morales, who is a tough veteran, is focused on defense and never gives a fight easily .

Morales (11-12-1, 4 KOs) is a very, very good outlook checker at some level, and he did that job again tonight. But Valdez has proven himself in this game, doing a solid job and clearly taking the laps. I think you could argue Morales in one of the early rounds, but the majority was all Valdez. It’s not the kind of performance that stands out and won’t show up on the BoxRec page either, but Morales is not an incompetent and Valdez did well. Golden Boy has just returned to Hector, which looks like a good choice in a currently turbulent weight class.

Evan Sanchez UD-6 Issouf Kinda

It was a legitimately valuable fight for Sanchez, a 22-year-old welterweight prospect, as Kinda, 32, was quite snappy and gave him decent looks throughout the six rounds, even though Kinda hadn’t fought. since 2017.

Kinda (18-5, 7 KOs) isn’t a star, but he’s been with decent fighters (usually losing out), and he clinched clear rights in this fight over southpaw Sanchez (8-0, 6 KOs) ), and that’s something Sanchez will need to watch out for in the future. If Kinda can land the “left handed killer,” better fighters certainly will. Young man with things to work on, but a good outlook. He did a good body job here in particular, and landed a controversial fourth round knockdown, which was really a blow to the back of the head, but not intentional or his fault.

The scores were 58-55, 59-54 and 60-53 for Sanchez.

“I had a little rust because I hadn’t fought, but we’re back,” Sanchez said after the fight. “I really wanted (the stop). Being the first fight (back for Golden Boy), I really wanted to stop it, but it didn’t come. It was a lot of experience. He has a lot of fights and he fought big names like Jose Ramirez so it was a good experience.
