Boxing In China: Barrera Mounts Comeback Win, McCline Wins WBC Eliminator

Sichuan Gymnasium in Chengdu, China was the site of a Don King boxing card last night headlined by the triumphant return of Mexican legend Marco Antonio Barrera, 64-6 (43), who came back from a one year hiatus from the ring to stop lightweight Sammy Ventura, 25-20 (20), in the fourth round with body shots.

There were heavyweights on the bill, with Jameel McCline, 39-9-3 (23), rekindling his world title hopes with a twelve round unanimous decision against Mike Mollo, 19-3 (12), to win a WBC title eliminator.

Veteran Polish heavy Andrew Golota, 41-7-1 (33), suffered another setback as the 40 year old was pounded to the canvas in the first frame by Ray Austin, 26-4-4 (17), and appeared to suffer an arm injury in the process, declining to come out for the second round of action.

Juan Palacios, 25-2 (20), went to the trenches with committed opponent Teruo Misawa, 18-5-4 (7), and emerged with a stoppage victory in the eighth round to tajke home the Interim WBC Minimumweight crown.

Wang Ya Nan, 9-0 (3), posted a ten round decision over Akondaye Fountain, 7-2-1 (4), for the WBC Female and WIBA Middleweight title.

Light welter prospect Devon Alexander, 16-0 (9), kept on track with a fourth round stoppage of Sun Haeng Lee, 9-4-1 (4).
