Zepeda Beats Arboleda With Second-Round KO – ‘I Am The Best’

William Zepeda emerged victorious over Jaime Arboleda with a second-round knockout.

In the second round of the fight, Zepeda landed a series of body shots that caused Arboleda to fall to the canvas three times.

The bout was then stopped at the 2:16 mark, as Zepeda had too much firepower.

The victory keeps Zepeda unbeaten, which puts him in line for the biggest fights at 135 lbs.

Meanwhile, Arboleda’s record stands at 19 wins and three losses.

“We prepared for a complicated fight, he was hungry to make a point.

“We had planned to go to the body the first couple of rounds and end it at the top, but we were able to finish the job early with just getting him at the body.

“I will prove to the world that I am the best at 135. I want to fight the best world champions out there. I signed up for boxing not ballet,” Zepeda

Lawson Wins

Frederick Lawson won a ten-round unanimous decision over Estevan Villalobos: 96-94, 96-94, and 97-93. Although Villalobos almost won in the last round, Lawson held on to emerge victorious.

Stevens Survives Scare

David Stevens, with a record of 13 wins and nine knockouts, beat Marco Periban in a unanimous decision: 78-73, 78-73, and 77-74.
