Hard hitting prize fighting returned as Barry Michael Sports presented “History in the Making” on from the Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. BMS events are premier boxing and shows, promoted across throughout Australia as a proving ground for tomorrow’s future stars and established veterans looking to mix it up. This huge card featured several up and coming fighters from the region.
In the main event, for the WBO Oriental Super Middleweight Title, fan favorite Zac Dunn (16-0) defeated Ricardo Marcello Ramallo (16-6-1) via TKO in the seventh round. Dunn had been one step ahead of the gritty Ramallo all night, but it took Dunn several rounds to break down the durable Ramallo in the ring. Dunn used a quick jab that set up all of his combos to really rack up points against Ramallo who never wavered until the end. In the seventh, Dunn continued to pump out his left jab and find his mark with combos to the head and body of Ramallo. Ramallo fired back but his punches didn’t have the power that they did in the early rounds as Dunn was able to walk through most of Ramallo’s offense. Dunn connected with several overhand right hands and dropped Ramallo with a short right hand. Ramallo rose to his feet and Dunn began throwing lefts and rights to the body and face of Ramallo with no resistance from Ramallo and the ref finally saw enough and stepped in to stop the fight. With the win, Dunn stays undefeated and continues his upward trajectory as one of Australia’s rising prospects.
In the co-main event, for the vacant Australia Victoria State Bantamweight Championship, Andrew Moloney (2-0) defeated Jonathan Ligas (8-7-1) via KO in the first round. Both fighters were scrapping from the onset and landing serious combos. Moloney was working the body of Ligas as he was scoring with left hooks to the midsection. Ligas fired back with 1-2 combos. Moloney did a nice job of ducking and blocking several shots and finished the fight off with a counter liver shot. It was the same punch he was scoring with to the body earlier in the round, but this one found its mark and shut down Ligas. Ligas had a delayed reaction to the punch, but once he went down it was clear his night was finished. Moloney can already call himself a champion after only 2 pro fights and its clear he is ready to push the pace of his career as a pro after enjoying a decorated record as an amateur.
Ben Capps (10-2-2) and Fred Tukes (12-1-2) fought to a split draw after six rounds. It was a solid performace by both men as they each won on one judge’s scorecard and the third judge had it a draw. Tukes seemed to confuse Capps with his southpaw stance. Tukes scored with body shots and lead left hands that made Capps take a step back. Tukes was also very hard to hit and managed to land punches without getting hit himself. It was an odd decision as Tukes seemed to dominate in spots while Capps seemed to be one step behind on the exchanges.
