SAN DIEGO, November 28, 2015 – Premier Boxing gave its stable of fighters including several local Texans a series of TKO wins in Dallas Saturday.
In the main event, Jermall Charlo (23-0, 18 KOs) had no trouble at all with Haitian born Wilky Campfort (21-2-0, 12 KOs). Charlo put his very good jab to work, setting Campfort down twice in the second round and again in the third before ending things for good in the fourth round. Campfort couldn’t find any openings and threw few punches. Charlo keeps the IBF super welterweight title he won in September.

Olympian Errol “The Truth” Spence scored his sixth straight knockout win and had his best performance to date in front of his hometown Dallas fans, stopping Alejandro Barrera at 1:46 of the fifth round.
Spence showed a great deal of patience, forcing Barrera down to a knee with a beautiful body shot. Barrera beat the count. Spence got down to business and unleashed a variety of shots to the head and body until referee Laurence Cole stopped it. It was the first time Barrera had ever been stopped.
“This is my home town, these are my people so I wanted to put on a great show,” said Spence. Spence is extremely accurate with his punches and has good power. Now he needs to pay a bit more attention to his defensive skills as he looks forward to facing more serious opposition. He named Kell Brook and Shawn Porter as two of the names in the top ten he’d like to face.

Erickson “The Hammer” Lubin opened the televised portion of the card with a lightning quick kncokout of Alexis Camacho at 42 seconds of the second round. Lubin delivered a straight right to drop Camacho the first time, then a right hook right on the money to finish things off. Lubin was originally going to fight in for the U.S. in the Olympic Games in Rio this summer, but decided to turn pro instead. He made a good decision.The talented 20 year old from Orlando, Florida is now 13-0 with 10 KOs.

Redheaded young Houston welterweight “Cowboy” Ryan Karl (11-0, 8 KOs) put on the most entertaining bout of the afternoon, scoring a fifth round TKO over Ken Alvarez of Puerto Rico (7-3-2, 3 KOs). The obvious “Canelo” ginger jokes aside, Karl is worth keeping an eye on.
Veteran super lightweight John Molina Jr. (24-6-0, 23 KOs) of California launched his comeback effort with a sharp TKO win over Jorge Romero of Mexico (24-10-0. 21 KOs), at 47 seconds of the third round. Molina has suffered three rough losses in a row, the last to Adrien Broner in March. At age 32, Molina still feels he’s got plenty to offer.
