Carl Froch TKO8 Henry Porras... Ever since Carl Froch signed for a fight in California, Hennessy, his British promoters have been issuing a steady stream of bold press releases touting Froch as the next big thing at super middleweight. Froch held up his end of the bargain on Thursday, although, bogus WBC rating aside, Henry Porras wasn't quite the "world class operator" he was made out to be. Still, Froch performed well, convincing Porras' corner to throw in the towel during the eighth round. Froch, currently rated #27 by Boxingtalk, seems due for a promotion. He is now 15-0 with four straight wins over solid opposition.  source: Boxeo De Oro on HBO Latino

Arturo Morua W10  Jung Bum Kim... At the Avalon in Hollywood, California, Arturo Morua defeated Jung Bum Kim by scores of 97-93 (twice) and 98-92 in a junior welterweight bout. Morua, 22-6-1, may now be headed for a shot at Vivian Harris on the Arturo Gatti-Floyd Mayweather undercard.  Kim remains the OPBF champion as his title was not at stake. source: Boxeo De Oro on HBO Latino

Pavel Melkomian W10 Juan Carlos Gimenez... In Bischofshofen, Austria, cruiserweight Pavel Melkomian improved to 18-0 with a ten-round decision over ancient Juan Carlos Gimenez on Wednesday.  It was Melkomian's first bout in 18 months.  Hardcore fans may remember Giminez, age 44, as the loser of four super middleweight title bouts in the 1990s (to Joe Calzaghe, Nigel Benn, Chris Eubank and Mauro Galvano). Now 56-12-4, Gimenez turned pro way back in 1982.  source: Universum website
