PBC On Fox Results: Morrell-Allen
Premiere Boxing Champions returned to Fox on Saturday with Jamal James set to face Thomas Dulorme in a scheduled 12 rounder for the WBA’s interim welterweight title. First, however, the 2-0 David Morrell took on 22-0-1 Lennox Allen in a scheduled 12 rounder in the super middleweight division. The bout was a big step up for Morrell, a Cuban immigrant with a seemingly bright future.
Allen certainly came to fight against the much younger Morrell, but the rising fighter was able to keep his distance and land cleanly against the 35 year old vet. Maintaining control of the ring by moving in and out of the box, Morrell was able to land at will too effectively for Allen to have a large amount of success, though the Brooklynite – by way of Guyana, was able to have his moments due to his employment of pressure tactics.
The fight went the distance and the judges scored it wide for Morrell by scores of 118-110, 119-109 and 120-108 respectively.
FS1 Results: Milenicki, Santamaria Victorious
Recent high school graduate Vito Milenicki Jr impressed on the Fox Sports 1 PBC card in Los Angeles when the 5-0 fighter stopped the 3-1 Chris Rollins in violent fashion. After dropping his man in the second, Milenicki moved in once Rollins got back to his feet and immediately landed effectively. The referee wisely stopped the fight.
Afterwards, the 22-1 Mykal Fox faced the 10-1-1 Lucas Santamaria in a scheduled 10 round welterweight affair. Santamaria dropped his man in the first, but Fox was able to get up and survive the round. The fight ended up being an exciting battle, with each man giving it his all. Indeed, the action was sometimes quite furious.
The fight ultimately went to Santamaria by scores of 96-93, 97-92 and 99-90.
