Ramos beats Beltran, De Leon Stops Prescott
Lightweight Casey Ramos (23-1, 6 KOs) edged out a unanimous decision over Miguel Beltran Jr. (31-6, 21 KOs) at the Marriott Convention Center in Burbank Ca. Ramos was rocked by a left hook towards the end of round two but stayed on his feet and pressed the action in the following round. Beltran stood his ground in the fourth and landed effectively when he walked Ramos back. The back-and-forth action continued throughout the ten round battle with Ramos coming out on top with scores of 97-93 and 96-94 twice.
“It feels good to be back in the winner’s circle” said Ramos “We have to go back to the gym, I didn’t perform like I wanted to perform, I could’ve done a lot better. I could’ve kept up the tempo but I’m coming off my first loss. No excuses, my opponent came to fight”
In the co-feature, unbeaten Erick De Leon (16-0, 10 KOs) stopped Daulis Prescott (31-6, 24 KOs) in the third round of a scheduled eight. De Leon was on the hunt from the opening bell, landing quick combinations that had Prescott in reverse for as long as it lasted. After a vicious body attack, Prescott chose to take a knee to avoid further punishment. After making it to his feet, referee Jack Reiss noticed Prescott in considerable pain and called it off at the ringside physicians request. A torn Bicep muscle may have been the cause.
