Melligen Dominates Zepeda
Welterweight Mark Melligen (16-1, 12 KO's) stopped 32 year old veteran Ernesto Zepeda (39-13-4, 34 KO's) last night in four brutal, one-sided rounds. The 23 year old southpaw landed his straight lefts at will to the head of Zepeda. Zepeda was game and pressed forward, but with little head movement. Zepeda absorbed too many punishing, sharp punches. In round 4, Zepeda suffered a cut under his left eye. After landing many clean punches, Melligen finally dropped Zepeda with a left, prompting referee Joe Cortez to stop the bout. Get boxing gloves by Everlast and Ringside.
