Hooper upsets Salamov / Dames shocks Pacquiao’s cousin at Suncorp Stadium

Pacquiao v Horn 02/07/2017

In the opening contest in Brisbane, Brent Dames shocked headliner Manny Pacquiao’s cousin Jonel Dapidran on points at super lightweight.

Dames edged the battle 58-56 (twice) and 59-55 on the scorecards as Dapidran tasted defeat for only the second time in ten fights.

At bantamweight, undefeated Brock Jarvis improved to 10-0 by dropping Caem Rasmanudin three times in the first round before taking him out.

In another upset, Damien Hooper decisioned former IBO champion Umar Salamov, ending the Russian’s 19-fight winning streak since turning pro.

Hooper scraped through 96-94 with all three officials to record a career-best triumph and take his C.V. to 13-1.

Middleweight prospect David Toussaint can now boast an 11-0 record after inflicting a second career loss on ‘Sugar’ Shane Mosley Jr.

The southpaw had seemingly done enough through the eight rounds to take a unanimous verdict, although the cards were split when revealed at the end.

Mosley got it 77-75 with one judge who was overuled by two others giving it to Toussaint 77-76.

Mick Conlan took out the elusive Jarrett ‘Juarez’ Owen in three rounds to continue his run of knockout victories.

Although Owen never touched the canvas, Conlan was gradually breaking him down and was catching the Aussie with wicked shots to the body.

The referee stepped in to save Owen leaving the Irishman free to enjoy the main event and look forward to his next proposed date of September 22.
