John Arellano W8 Xavier Wilson... On Thursday in San Antonio, Texas, lightweight John Arellano (10-1, 9 KOs) had to win the last two rounds on two of the scorecards to take a hard-fought, eight-round split decision against previously unbeaten Xavier Wilson (10-1-1, 1 KO) of Baltimore. Scores were 76-75 (twice) for the Texan, overruling 78-73 for Arellano. It marked the first win for Arellano in which he went the distance.
Kendo Castaneda W10 Eudy Bernardo... Local junior welterweight Kendo "Tremendo" Castaneda outboxed Eudy "AK47" Bernardo and cruised to a ten-round unanimous decision triumph on Thursday on the RJJ Boxing on UFC Fight Pass show at Cowboy Dance Hall in San Antonio, Texas. The 25-year-old Castaneda (16-0, 7 KOs) easily notched the win in a one-sided fight, evident by the judges' scoring (99-91, 98-92, 97-93), against his usually dangerous Dominican opponent. "I give my performance a solid eight," Castaneda said after the right. "I outboxed the guy and slapped him around all night. I really wanted the knockout, but Bernardo was mainly in a defensive mode all night. He did not live up to his 'AK47' nickname and let his hands go. I tip my hat to the guy, though. At the end of the day, he impressed me with his rugged toughness and engagement to survive the ten rounds. I'm ready to do what I do and get back to work and continue the good fight. And I'm glad to go ten rounds, so I have more rounds to study myself and sharpen up my craft."
San Antonio lightweight Joseph "Mongoose" Rodriguez (15-0-1, 2 KOs) kept his unbeaten pro record intact with a six-round split decision versus a game Darryl Hayes (6-13), of Houston. Rodriguez also needed to win the last two rounds on two judges' scorecards to earn his win.
San Antonio super bantamweight Henry "World Star" Arredondo (3-0, 1 KO) knockout out his Mexican opponent, Jahaziel Vazquez (2-10, 1 KO), in the second round.
Fighting on the non-streamed part of the card, San Antonio super welterweight Raymond Guajardo (1-0, 1 KO) turned in a winning pro debut, knocking out fellow Texan Leonardo Mendez (0-1), also making his pro debut, in the second round.
Houston welterweight Jerrico "Hands of Stone" Walton improved to 12-0 (7 KOs), pitching a shutout for a four-round unanimous decision (40-36 on all three cards), over Juan Rodriguez (8-14-1, 6 KOs), of Virginia. source for all results: rjj boxing
