IBF#14, WBC#12,WBO#5 middleweight Daniel Geale (25-11-3, 14 KOs) made
short work of Canadas Ian MacKillop (25-11-3, 14 KOs) when he stopped
in the import in round one at The Cube, Campbelltown, NSW, Australia on
Wednesday. Geale jumped on MacKillop at the bell and scored with
accurate combinations that dropped his opponent and referee Gary Dean
counted him out at 1.58. MacKillop holds a knockout win over world rated
middleweight Shannan Taylor who went the distance against IBF 160
champion arthur Abraham and Anthony Mundine. Geale is scheduled to meet
Mundine on May 27.
In the main supporting bout, world class jr welterweight Lenny
Zappavigna (18-0, 13 KOs) scored the biggest win of his career when he
easily outpointed former IBF 130 pound champion Gairy St Claire (41-9-2,
18 KOs) over twelve to retain the IBF Pan Pacific jr welterweight title.
Zappavigna connected with power head and body shots consistently that
had the clever St Claire on the backmove. St Claire was hurt from a hard
right hand to the head in round six and in round seven both boxers
exchanged accurate combinations. In round ten St Claire boxed
aggressively but he could not match the power and work rate of
Zappa.Judges scores at the conclusion 120-107, 119-109 and 120-108.
Former IBO 130 pound world champion Billy Dib (22-1, 11 KOs) captured
the IBF Pan Pacific Youth and WBC interim Youth title when he was
awarded eight round technical decision over Davey Browne (15-1-1,4 KOs).
Dib controlled rounds one and two but Browne came back in rounds three
and four to score well. Browne suffered a cut over the eye in round
seven and in round eight Doctor Alex Lewis ruled it too severe to
continue. Scores were split. 69-65 and 68-65 for Dib. 67-66 for Browne.
