Fast rising super welterweight prospect Justin DeLoach (15-1, 8 KOs) dominated Junior Castillo rolling to an eight round decision by scores of 79-71, 78-72 and 78-72 in the main event of Premier Boxing Champions on NBCSN.
Drilling Castillo to the canvas in the third and sixth DeLoach put the junior middleweight division on notice that he is looking to become a world champion in the not-to-distant future.
“I’m very happy with my performance, did exactly what I wanted to. I’m ready for any of the big names in the junior middleweight division. Even my friend Erickson Lubin, I’d love to fight him,”
“I’m going to stay humble, stay focused, and keep working towards a world championship.”
Unbeaten super lightweight Ryan “Cowboy” Karl (12-0, 8KOs) continued to impress with a one-sided eight round decision over Luis Solis (14-7-4, 12 KOs).
Dropping Solid in round, Karl went past the fifth stanza for the first time in his career enroute to victory by scores of 80-71, 79-72 and 78-73.
In the televised opener, Darwin Price (12-0, 11 Kos) stayed undefeated with a spirited eight round decision against the also previously undefeated Semajay Thomas, (8-1, 4 KOs) in a super lightweight scrap by scores of 80-71 (twice) and 79-72.
Dropping Thomas in the first round, Price set the tone, playing matador to Thomas’ bull. Following the advice of his renowned trainer Ronnie Shields Price stayed on the outside, racking up points throughout the fight with a piston like jab setting up his combinations towards the wide points decision.
The event was promoted by Leija Battah Promotions and TGB Promotions from the Scottish Rite Auditorium in San Antonio, Texas.
