In one of the evening’s co-features, Jesus Soto Karass won a majority decision over Selcuk Aydin in a 10-round super welterweight fight. Soto Karass simply outworked Aydin from the opening bell, continually pushing forward and controlling most of the rounds. The scores were 97-93 twice and 95-95. Soto Karass’ record improved to 27 wins, eight losses and three draws with 17 knockouts.
In the SHOWTIME® telecast’s opening bout, highly regarded 154-pound prospect Jermell Charlo took a step up in competition and knocked out rugged Harry Joe Yorgey in the eighth round of a 10-round super welterweight fight. Charlo, the undefeated student of respected trainer Ronnie Shields, looked impressive with poise, speed and power. The young 22-year-old prospect improved to 20 wins with 10 knockouts and is a man to watch at super welterweight.
