John Molina KO4 Dannie Williams... On ESPN2s Friday Night Fights, John Molina knocked out Dannie Williams in a lightweight bout that took place in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Williams was fighting with his back to the ropes when Molina landed a right to the temple. Williams lost his equilibrium and went down with his arms flailing. He barely beat the count but looked dazed, so the stoppage was appropriate. The win represents a strong rebound for Molina, now 25-2, whose last fight was a first-round WBC title fight loss to Antonio DeMarco.  Williams is now 22-3 but has lost his last two big fights and didn't show much of a chin.  source: espn2

Ronny Rios W10 Rico Ramos... In a featherweight bout in Indio, California, Ronny Rios (20-0, 9 KOs) of Santa Ana, Calif., got a quality win, via a unanimous ten-round decision, over ex-WBA 122 pound titlist Rico Ramos (21-2, 11 KOs) of Los Angeles. Rios, who turns 23 on Jan. 22nd, won by scores of 100-90, 97-93 and 96-94. ShoBox analyst Steve Farhood said, “in the second half of the main event there was almost a role reversal,” he said.  “Rios, who had been the aggressor, began fighting tentatively.  On my card that shift resulted in a close fight.  I agree that Rios won, but he certainly could have been more impressive. source: showtime press release

Daquan Arnett W8 Brandon Quarles ... On the same show, Daquan Arnett (10-0, 6 KOs), of Orlando, Fla., won an eight-round decision over hard-trying Brandon Quarles (10-1-1, 2 KOs) of Alexandria, Va. Arnett, 20, a Junior Olympic national champion, got the nod over Quarles by the scores of 78-73, 77-74 and 76-75.  “Arnett is clearly a gifted young fighter, but his issue seems to be his focus and having a good game plan and sticking to it,” said Farhood. By Arnett’s own admission, his victory over Quarles was anything but an artistic success.  “It wasn’t pretty, plain and simple,” Arnett said.  “He wanted to make it as ugly as he could because he knew I had a better boxing style. He managed to take me out of my game plan, but I proved that I could adapt. source: showtime press release

Randy Caballero KO4 Luis Maldonado... In a non-televised fight in Indio, California, bantamweight Randy “El Matador” Caballero (18-0, 10 KOs) of Coachella, Calif., registered a fourth-round knockout over Luis Maldonado (38-10-1, 29 KOs) of Mexico. A few years back, Maldonado lasted until the eight round in losses to Vic Darchinyan and Nonito Donaire. source: showtime press release

Rances Barthelemy W12 Arash Usmanee... Three judges in Miami, Florida did what Rances Barthelemy could not-- beat Arash Usmanee. Judges Valerie Dorsett, Rick Bays and Rich Green gave the Florida-based Barthelemy a hometown win in a super featherweight bout with scoring that was simply unfair to the Canadian-based Usmanee. There is no objective justification for these three judges' scores.  Punchstat credited Usmanee (20-1) with outlanding Barthelemy 282 punches to 238, and ESPN's Teddy Atlas thought Usmanee deserved a 117-111 verdict. "It's either incompetence or corruption! That is disgraceful!" screamed Atlas after the verdict was read, and Boxingtalk agrees. Barthelemy (18-0) clearly won the first two rounds, but Usmanee adjusted well, and threw about 260 punches more than Barthelemy did over the twelve rounds. It was an exciting competitive fight that ended with little suspense as to who the winner should be. That changed when the verdict was read, 116-112 (twice) and 115-113 for the undeserving Barthelemy. The only consolation is that Usmanee, whose father was killed in wartorn Afghanistan when he was just six, has been through worse. The last major fight of 2012, Tomasz Adamek's unjust win over Steve Cunningham, was also a judging debacle, showing just how unfair the sport has become in many states.

Jonathan Gonzalez W10 Derek Ennis... In the ESPN2 telecast opener, 2008 Puerto Rican Olympian Jonathan Gonzalez won a majority decision over Philadelphia's Derek Ennis in a junior middle weight bout. Official scores were 98-92 and 97-93, both for Gonzalez and 95-95.  Gonzalez, coming off a draw against former world titlist, Sergey Dzinziruk, improves to 16-0-1, while Ennis slips to 23-4-1. source: espn2
