warner-center-warAn action-filled eight-bout card took place, Friday, March 4 at the Warner Center Marriott, in Woodland Hills , CA .

Yusuf Mack, of Philadelphia , PA won the USBA Light Heavyweight championship with a dull 12-round unanimous decision over Otis "Triple OG" Griffin .  Griffin limited his offense to staying outside, and making occasional rushes, while Mack landed the better head and body shots.  Each round was a copy of the one before it, until the 12th round, when Mack dropped Griffin with a left hook.  Strangely, one judge has Griffin up 114-113, while the other two scored a more appropriate 116-111, and 119-108.  Convicted Artist scored it 117-110 Mack.  With the win, Mack earns a crack at IBF champion Tavoris Cloud.

In the co-main event, Ray Beltran, of Los Mochis , Mexico , got back in the ring after over a year delay, to domnate and stop Carlos Vinan at the end of round 7.  Vinan showed heart, but did not have the firepower to thwart Beltran, who took turnes dominating from the orthodox and southpaw stances... each time landing his hard left hand on many occasions.

In an eight-round junior-featherweight special attraction, Javier 'El Girito" Gallo came back from a crushing KO loss in his last bout, to win a hard-fought split -decision over Tecate, MX's Jose Luis Araiza.  The bout was a close, exciting affair, with very little defense  in virtually every round.  In the end, 2 judges favored the aggression and forward pressure of Gallo, who took the fight, 78-74, and 77-75.  Araiza was jup on the third card, 77-75.  Convicted Artist scored it a 76-76 draw.

In welterweight action, Hugo "The Boss" Centeno, 6-0-6 KO's, got back into action after a layoff, with his sixth consectuve KO win in as many fights.  Bilings , MT 's Jesus Vallejo, 3-4, 3 KO's, was down from a hard left hook early, and never did fully regain his legs.  Centeno, of Oxnard , CA  showed patience in finishing off his opponent.

In heavyweight action, it was the " Battle of the Bears" Andrey Fedosov, of St. Petersburg , Russia , got back to winning ways, with a first round KO over Byron "Da Bear"  Polley.  Polley, of St. Joseph , MO was flattened early by a left hook but rose to remain competitive for the reaminder of the round.  That is until a big right had from "The Russian Bear" dropped him hard, and the bout was stopped.  Fedosov improves to 18-2-14KO's, while Polley falls to 24-11-1-11 KO's

Anatoliy, 'The Dragon Man" Dudchenko, of Skadovsk, Ukraine, scored a bizarre fourth-round stoppage win over Joe Broken Rope, 2-2, of Billings, MT.  Although Broken Rope was behind, and refused to engage much in the Cruiserweight matchup, he was not at all hurt, when the bout was mysteriously waved off by referee Ray Corona.  Dudchenko showed patience in stalking his man, as Broken Rope was content to box from the outside, barely making contact.  Dudchenko moves to 11-2-8 KO's.

Two bouts took place at the beginning of the night, sponsored by KO for girls.  This is a non-rpofit women's charity that works with at risk females.  In her professional debut, Yolanda Ezell scored a quick one punch KO over former U.S. Mational Golden Gloves Masters champion Laura Deanovic.  Deanovic was making her debut at the age of 44, but didn't even have the chance to get started.  Within seconds, ezell dropped  Deanivc hard with a lead right hook from her southpaw stance.  Although Deanovic, of San Francisco , rose, she was not allowed to continue.

Also, in her debut, Adrienne Alegria took a close four-round decision over San Diego 's Blanca Raymundo.  In an action packed bout, when many opunches were landed, but not mcuh damage was done... Raymundo appeared to fight on even terms with debuting Alergia.  However, only one judge scored it as such, with the other two siding weith Alegria, by 39-37 scores.  Raymundo drops to 0-3, and may be one of the best fighters with that record.

All fights were promoted by Art of Boxing and Bash Boxing.  Ring Announcer was Jim Fitzgerald.  Chris Strait , of Convicted Artist, and former IBF Junior Welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi provided commentary for a delayed telecast
