ESPN Boxing Results: Jessie Magdaleno vs Yenifel Vicente Full Card Outcome
Jessie Magdaleno vs Yenifel Vicente
Jessie Magdaleno (28-1, 19 KOs) made it three wins in a row as he won an ugly contest against Yenifel Vicente (36-5-2, 28 KOs) at the MGM Grand Conference Center, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Vicente just couldn’t seem to do anything right on the night, consistently getting called for punches that strayed below the belt line. To make matters worse, Vicente found himself on the deck on two separate occasions.
After another series of low blows in the final round, the referee stepped in to disqualify Vicente and end the night early.
Adam Lopez vs Luis Coria
It was all action, all the time in the opener of tonight’s Top Rank card headlined by Jessie Magdaleno and Yenifel Vicente.
Featherweight contender Adam Lopez (14-2, 6 KOs) moved back into the winners circle with a victory over Luis Coria (12-3, 7 KOs). But it wasn’t easy for him to do so. Coria came into the contest swinging from the opening bell. It didn’t take Lopez long to realize that he had a dog fight on his hands and met fire with fire. He quickly adapted and pushed his man back. Much of the contest played out in a phone booth with both men having their moments.
Gabriel Muratalla vs Fernando Robles
Gabriel Muratalla (3-0, 3 KOs) came into his contest Fernando Robles (2-3) as an undefeated fighter and made sure he left like one as well. Muratalla came out fast, setting the pace and forcing his man to think fast.
Robles ostensibly couldn’t think fast enough as a right hand to head sent him down the deck. He stumbled to his feet but the referee in charge called an end to the contest.
Eric Mondragon vs Mike Sanchez
Four rounds just wasn’t good enough to pick a winner between Eric Mondragon (3-0-1, 2 KOs) and Mike Sanchez (6-0-1, 2 KOs).
Things started off great for Sanchez as he dropped his man during the opening round. Everything seemed to be going his way until he was caught cold with a left hand from Mondragon which sent him to the canvas as well. The remaining three rounds played out too close for comfort. When the final bell rang, it was clear that there just wasn’t enough time. The judges scoring the contest gave Mondragon the bout 39-37 but was quickly overruled by the following two judges that scored it 38-38.
Jessie Magdaleno vs Yenifel Vicente: Fight Preview
By: Hans Themistode
This past Tuesday night on June 9th, 2020, WBO Featherweight titlist Shakur Stevenson seemingly stopped time.
With boxing fans deprived of any live shows for three months prior to that, the world was Stevenson’s oyster as the sport returned. And boy, he did not disappoint, stopping Felix Caraballo in the 6th round. Now, only two days later, former Super Bantamweight belt holder Jessie Magdaleno steps into the spotlight.
It’s been an up and down four years for the former champion. In 2016, he saw his name and status jump up considerably with a win over Nonito Donaire that netted him the WBO Super Bantamweight title. His high stock didn’t last long though as a right hand from Isaac Dogboe forced him to drop the belt. Now, two years removed from that upset loss, and Magdaleno has seen a slight uptick in his stock once again. Winning back to back contests against Rico Ramos and Rafael Rivera. His fight against Yenifel Vicente could be a stepping stone on his way to another world title. But the fringe contender could use a big win of his own.
Vicente has never been in the mix in terms of title contention, but he has won 11 of his past 12 fights with all those wins coming via knockout.
The main event of tonight’s card has all of the ingredients to make for an explosive matchup. But the undercard isn’t lacking as well. Eric Mondragon and Mike Sanchez will both walk into the ring with unbeaten records, but only one will leave with that same distinction. Also on the card, Adam Lopez and Luis Coria will battle it out for the vacant NABF Featherweight title.
The event kicks off at 7 P.M. ET on ESPN from the MGM Grand Conference Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
