Judah Punishes Paris In 9, Adamek Victorious!
By Sig Guillermo
Aviator Sports Complex, Brooklyn, New York- In his most impressive recent win to date, former WBC welterweight/WBA Super World welterweight/IBF welterweight champion, Zab “Super” Judah (42W-7L-29KO’s) meticulously dominated hot young prospect, Vernon “Iceman” Paris (26W-1L-15KO’s-3NC) by spectacular 9th round stoppage in a scheduled twelve round IBF light welterweight eliminator.
The 16-year boxing veteran would return triumphantly since losing via 5th round knockout to former unified WBA (Super)/IBF Light Welterweight titlist, Amir “King” Khan (26W-2L-18KO’s) last July. Against the highly praised young novice, Judah revealed his superior tactics in outclassing his inexperienced adversary from the opening bell. Judah’s focus remained unfazed as he dictated the pace with his jab and lead rights. As the rounds progressed, Judah’s crafty inside game took over the remainder of the match. In the 9th round, Judah would land nearly fifteen unanswered shots; forcing referee Steve Willis to halt the contest at 2:27. Judah, 34, would go on to astonish the boxing world once again. Up next for Judah is a likely showdown against the winner of the May 19th rematch between Khan and Peterson.
In the co-feature, former WBC Light Heavyweight/IBF/The Ring Cruiserweight Champion, Tomasz “Goral” Adamek (45W-2L-28KO’s) would go on to defeat Dominican journeyman, Nagy “Dominican Dynamite” Aguilera (17W-6L-12KO’s) by ten round unanimous decision. Although Aguilera ,25, had lost 3 out of his last 4 fights, he arrived in much better shape than in his most recent bouts. What would then seem like a blowout on paper, became a struggle for the Polish pugilist. Adamek, 35, would go on to weather the storm of Aguilera’s early onslaught with his more technically sound abilities to go on and earn the verdict. Two judge’s scorecards would read 100-90, while the other had it 99-91. Adamek was returning from a courageous 10th round TKO defeat last October to reigning WBC Heavyweight Champion, Vitali “Dr. Ironfist” Klitschko (44W-2L-40KO’s).
On the undercard, former WBO heavyweight champion, Sergei “White Wolf” Liakhovich (25W-5L-16KO’s) suffered a 9th round TKO in a one-sided beating by Philadelphian knockout talent, Bryant “By-By” Jennings (13W-0-6KO’s). Liakhovich, 35, who had seen better days, would never let up. His countering efforts would ultimately be thwarted by Jenning’s relentless assaults and blistering flurries. Jennings, 27, would violently batter the 14-year veteran throughout the majority of the bout, leaving Sergei with a swollen left eye and broken nose. Jenning’s attempt to solidify himself as the next legitimate threat at heavyweight proved to be a real success.
