Oganesyan (13-1, 11 KOs) bowed out by unanimous decision of the judges. He thus gave up his super-welterweight belt of the North American Boxing Federation (NABF) and suffered a first defeat among professionals.

Jardon (35-8, 25 K.-O.), veteran of 43 professional fights who recently fought in England and Russia, did not want to know anything about the role of extra, as soon as the hostilities started. His powerful hook knocked the Armenia native down in the first round.

“Crazy” Jardon lived up to his nickname by applying sustained pressure on his rival and multiplying the assaults while Oganesyan waited for his moment… which ultimately never came.

The Mexican proved his great resistance to blows and his exemplary physical form, keeping his vis-à-vis in a corner for the overwhelming majority of the fight.

Recall that in his last fight, Oganesyan had triumphed following the abandonment of the French Stephane Danyo, who had also not made the weight.

In short

In a hotly contested fight where the defense was not in the spotlight, Montrealer Hamza Khabbaz (4-0, 1 KO) beat Mexican Marco Chino Villa (3-7) by unanimous decision.

Quebecer Luis Santana (6-0, 2 K.-O.) took up the biggest challenge of his young professional career by inflicting a first defeat on Mexican Sergio Hernandez Cruz (8-1-1, 6 K. -O.) by unanimous decision.

Montrealer Avery Martin-Duval (7-0-1, 4 KOs) got his money’s worth against Mexican Luis Reyes Carmona (9-2-1, 2 KOs), but has everything likewise convinced each of the judges to award him victory.
