Unbeaten cruiserweight prospect Mike “White Delight” Wilson (15-0, 9 KOs) added his fifteenth win to his unblemished record on Saturday Night at the Jackson County Expo in his hometown of Central Point, Oregon, taking an eight round unanimous decision over Columbus, Ohio’s Armando Ancona (8-5-2, 5 KOs).

Wilson pressed the fight from the start, taking it to Ancona, who looked to sit back and counter. Wilson dropped Ancona in the fourth round with a hard left-hook and went on to dominate the remainder of the fight with the more precise and busier attack. All three judges scored the fight 80-71, giving Wilson every round. 

“I felt great,” said Wilson after the fight. “I felt like I could have gone twelve rounds. Ancona was slick and a crafty fighter, but we took it to him. Now we just keep moving forward and figure out the next one.”

In an action packed welterweight semi-main event, Portland, Oregon’s Gabe “Ducky” Pineda (5-2-2, 1 KO) took a six round unanimous decision win over Marcelino Pineda (5-3, 5 KOs) of Sunnyside, Washington. Gabe Pineda out-worked the game Marcelino Pineda throughout the fight.

Vancouver, Washington’s Victor Morales, Jr. (2-0, 1 KO) scored the lone knockout of the night, stopping Felipe Medina (0-1) in the second round of a featherweight bout. Morales was too quick for Medina, forcing the stoppage mid-way through the second round.

Medford, Oregon’s Enrique Gallegos (6-5-1, 1 KO) was originally scheduled to face Josh Solis, but when a prefight urine test of Solis revealed a banned substance, he was not allowed to fight and some rearranging had to be done. Thankfully for the large contingent of Gallegos fans that had come out to see his first fight in seven years, Rafael Valencia (3-4-1, 2 KOs), who was originally scheduled to take on Brandon Maddox, stepped in to face Gallegos, while Maddox, who already owned a win over Valencia, stepped aside to allow Gallegos’ fight to go ahead. In the end the fans got a close, entertaining fight, with both Gallegos and Valencia having their moments. The official decision was a majority draw, with one judge seeing the fight for Gallegos and the other two scoring it even. The bout took place in the middleweight division.

Rafael Busuioe (4-1, 1 KO), of Sacramento, California, claimed a four round unanimous decision win over Jorge Cabrera (1-4, 1 KO) in a Jr. lightweight bout. Busuioe came out pressing in the first round, trading in close with his opponent before settling into a more methodical approach in the second. He went on to out-box Cabrera for the remainder of the bout. All three judges scored the bout for Busuioe with scores off 40-36.

In the opening bout of the night, Bend, Oregon’s Alberto Rivas (1-0) made a successful entrance into the paid ranks, taking a unanimous decision victory over local crowd favorite Randy Rogers (3-3, 2 KOs). Rivas, a southpaw, was the quicker and more effective fighter throughout, using good movement to find openings and counter when Rogers opened up.

The card was promoted by White Delight Promotions. The next show for the promotion will be January 28th at the Jackson County Expo.
