Rios vs. Antillon Undercard Results

By Gabriel Montoya at ringside

It was cavalcade of future talent for the Top Rank stable right from the start of Saturday’s Rios vs. Antillon fight card in Carson, CA.

Up first was a kid not signed to Top Rank but who is being looked at for the future, Australia’s Paul Fleming, 10-0 (7), who needed just 52 seconds of the first round to take out Juan Jose Beltran, 24-23-2 (15), with two left hands. Fleming returns to Australia to fight in the next two weeks but we should see more of him stateside soon enough.
Up next was middleweight Matt Korobov, 16-0 (9), who needed every round of the six-round bout to eke out a unanimous decisions over Lester Gonzalez, 12-4-2 (6). The fight seemed much closer than the 78-74 scores across the board.
Featherweight Gabino Saenz, 4-0 (4), took out Quinice Wesby, 1-2, at 1:41 of the fourth round and looks to be a prospect with a bright future.
Lightweight prospect Jose “El Gato” Roman improved to 11-0 (9), taking out Randy Arrellin, 8-6 (4), in 2:07 of the first round following a couple of brutal knockdowns.
There was a big crowd for light heavyweight Mike Lee, 5-0 (4), who entered to the Notre Dame fight song amid cheers from a large contingent wearing “Mike Lee” shirts. His opponent, Michael Birthmark, 2-6 (1), suffered an early knockdown off a big right hand by Lee and then was pounded out to the head and body at 2:54 of round three.
