Mike Jones / Jerson Ravelo Results
By Danny Serratelli at ringside, DoghouseBoxing (Aug 10, 2009)
Welterweight contender Mike Jones, 18-0, 15 KO's won a unanimous 10-round decision over a game opponent in Lennin Arroyo, 20-10-1,4 KO's to defend his NABA title on Saturday night at Bally’s Atlantic City.

Jones hurt Arroyo several times in the fight, but Arroyo showed a good chin and heart in going the 10 round distance with Jones who gave a very solid performance.

Scores were 99-91, 99-91, 98-92. Jones has a lot of potential and upside and it will be interesting to see who he fights next.

The Brick City's Dominican Olympian super-middleweight contender Jerson Ravelo, 20-4, 12 KO's picked up his 20th win in the co feature. Ravelo took the fight on a few days notice and easily defeated Willis Lockett, 12-9, 5 KO's.

It is amazing that Lockett used to compete at cruiserweight and even heavyweight, so his record is deceiving. Ravelo was the much bigger man and used a solid jab and good movement to keep Lockett off balance all night.

After 8 rounds the scores were 80-72, 79-73, and 77-75. Ravelo was excited to be back in the ring and is eager to fight again as soon as possible.
