Rumble On The Rivers 3:
The Rumble On The Rivers 3 Event went down last night and the Triblive was there on scene to capture the action. Monty Meza Clay turned in another majority decision over a equally sized and experienced opponent, Sammy Vasquez improves to 4-0 and Bill Hutchinson fought Curtis Morton to a draw. Here are the run downs from the Trib:
On the undercard, Monessen welterweight Sammy Vasquez Jr. (4-0) used a sharp right jab and wicked left cross to score a unanimous four-round decision over Anthony Willis (1-1-1) of Battle Creek, Mich. Also, Lennox Allen of New York City scored a TKO of Chicago’s Michael Walker in a super middleweight bout.
Light heavyweight Jaque Lutz (5-0-1) survived a third-round knockdown by Steve Tyner (3-5-2) of Albany, N.Y., for a four-round draw. Super lightweights Billy Hutchinson of Sheraden and Curtis Morton of Myrtle Beach, S.C., fought to a four-round draw.
In a battle of West Virginia heavyweights, Clarksburg’s Dan Martz scored a TKO of Charleston’s Jon Hill at 2:37 of the third round. In an amateur heavyweight bout, A.J. Materna of Canton, Ohio, scored a first-round knockout of Monaca’s Josh Himes.
Check out the full recount of Monty's bout after the jump:
Where judge Phil Rogers scored it even at 76-76, the cards of judges Dana DiPaolo (78-74) and George Kachulis (77-75) favored Meza-Clay, who improved to 33-3.
It was the sixth consecutive loss for Lucero
(26-12-1), whose resumé includes a loss to Manny Pacquiao in 2003.
Lucero took control in the second round and had Meza-Clay on the ropes in the third, landing repeated right hooks. Meza-Clay started working the body in the fourth and appeared to gain momentum but couldn’t stop Lucero.
“I had him hurt, then he started slipping all my punches,” Meza-Clay said. “That’s what came to mind, that he’s a mirror image with his slipping and dipping, bobbing-and-weaving game.”
Meza-Clay was at his best in the fifth, landing a pair of left hooks to the head. In the seventh, Meza-Clay drew blood, using a right hook to open a gash near Lucero’s left temple.
