This past Friday night wasn't a big one in the Heavyweight division but was a notable one with several unbeaten prospects in action and one really notable upset.
The first result we received was from Canada where Canadian based Colombian Oscar Rivas (14-0, 9) returned from 7 months of inactivity and defeated Daniel Cota (17-5-1, 10) in 5 rounds. Rivas, who has fought just twice since the start of 2013 has been plagued by injuries though we're really hoping to see more of him and hope that his injuries aren't going to prevent him from being able to reach his potential.
One unbeaten fighter who didn't have everything his own way was Gerald Washington (14-0, 10) who narrowly over-came the tricky and tough Nagy Aguilera (19-9, 13). Aguilera might not be a world beater but he is a potential banana skin and Washington was fortunate not to slip to his first defeat here, very tough bout for the unbeaten American.
Another unbeaten American to continue their winning ways was the promising Michael Hunter (6-0, 4) who scored a 4th round stoppage against Harvey Jolly (14-22-1, 7). On the same card as Hunter's win everyone was given a shock as the hard hitting Danny Kelly (6-1-1, 5) was shocked by Avery Gibson (4-4-2, 1). Gibson has now scored 2 notable upsets having added Kelly's scalp to that of Ytalo Perea.
