Jamel Herring wins decision to stay undefeated in FS1 main event
Lightweight Jamel Herring stayed undefeated with a dominant decision win Tuesday in Pennsylvania. The 2012 Olympian picked apart Luis Eduardo Flores over 10 rounds and earned a unanimous decision with scores of 99-89 and 100-88 (twice) in their FS1 and FOX Deportes PBC main event.
The fifth round was Herring’s strongest, as he managed to floor Flores twice. A body shot and then a right hook from Herring made Flores take a seat.
The durable Colombian got back to his feet and fought out the rest of the contest, but was unable to catch up with the American. The win improved Herring’s pro record to 15-0.
The loss was Flores’ second in his last four outings and dropped his career mark to 21-3 overall.
Earlier on the card, undefeated 2008 Olympian Raynell Williams won a unanimous decision over Gabriel Tolmajyan in another lightweight bout.
Williams controlled most of the fight but was wobbled by punches in the final stanza. He survived, however, and earned scores of 78-74, 79-73, 79-73 for the win.
