Bakersfield California: FS1 PBC Fight Night and on FOX Deportes took place on Saturday, September 21 at the Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield California.
In the main event, Alfredo Angulo (34-2-1, 23 KOs) won a hard-fought but close split decision over Peter Quillin (26-7, 21 KOs). The Judges scored the bout 96-94, 97-93 for Angulo and 96-94 for Quillin. The whole fight was back and forth bout with Quillin able to start early by establishing his jab and footwork to stay away from Angulo’s come-forward style. However, Angulo was not far behind as by the third round the fight turned into a phone booth fight with both fighters turning up the volume of punches and staying within close range. The tempo changed drastically in the 4th round when Angulo landed a heavy straight right hand that stunned Quillan. Angulo continued to apply pressure with bigger shots in the second half of the fight while Quillin used his jab and his own power shots to try to win the rounds. In the end it was “El Perro” who came out the victor.
In the evening’s co-main event, Chris Colbert (13-0, 5 KOs) knocked out Miguel Beltran (33-8, 22 KOs) at 2:57 in the first round of their scheduled 10-round contest in what could be a knockout of the year candidate. Colbert took control of the fight from the opening bell by displaying his speed and accuracy against the experienced Beltran, before setting up his opponent with a vicious jab followed by a huge right hand to end the contest.
Also on the card Thomas Dulorme (25-3-1, 16 KOs) scored a unanimous decision over Terrel Williams (18-1, 13 KOs) in a tough action-packed slugfest and pressed the action through all 10 rounds of the welterweight contest. Dulorme, who puts himself back in the win column with the victory tonight, took advantage of his ring experience to walk down the undefeated, but less experienced, Williams, who came out competitive from the start, used his jab in the early rounds to keep himself in the fight and fend off Dulorme’s power shots. Dulorme, who suffered a cut over the left eye from an accidental head butt in the 8th round, continued to press the action, wearing his opponent down and scored a knock down in the 10 round against Edwards to finish strong.
Opening the telecast on FS1 Jesus Ramos (11-0,10 KOs) as he scored an impressive knockout over Ricky Edwards (12-4, 3 KOs). The 18-year-old Casa Grande, Arizona prospect made it a short night when he landed an overhand left hook against Edwards in the 3rd round that sent Edwards to the canvas and unable to continue.
