Hotel & Casino Conrad, Punta del Este, Uruguay–
Acelino Freitas (39-2, 33 KOs) proved that a world class fighter, eight years and three weight classes beyond his best, is still better than a prime, over-hyped club fighter as he tore right through fellow Brazilian, Michael Oliveira (17-1, 12 KOs) en route to a TKO 9 win.
The former lightweight and super featherweight world champ, thick and stubby like a fireplug, took control from the opening round and never let go, landing just about every power shot flush on the face of Oliveira.
Freitas dropped “The Brazilian Rocky” in the third round and then twice in the ninth before the ref waved off the contest. The overmatched Oliveira, who aggressively pursued this bout with the retired boxer-turned political leader, had no defense, no effective offense, and no answer for anything presented to him.
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, The Joint, Las Vegas, Nevada–
Beibut Shumenov (13-1, 8 KOs) made the fourth defense of his WBA light heavyweight title with a unanimous twelve round decision over Enrique Ornelas (33-8, 21 KOs) by three scores of 120-108.
Shumenov did just enough to win each round while Ornelas did just enough to hang in there and lose–likely the idea behind Shumenov signing to meet Ornelas in the first place.
Herning Kongrescenter, Herning, Denmark–
