To kick off the televised pay-per-view undercard of tonight’s Miguel Cotto-Antonio Margarito rematch, Philadelphia welterweight Mike Jones defeated Argentinean Sebastian Lujan by unanimous decision in an easy fight to score. Two judges had it for 119-109 for Jones, while one had it 118-110. SB Nation New York had it 119-109 for Jones.
The much taller man, Jones was able to control the fight by keeping distance and hitting on combinations. Despite connecting quite a bit, Jones couldn’t put down Lujan, who showed some toughness but not much else. Jones is an exciting prospect to keep an eye on, but it’s about time he takes a step up in competition, as he improved to 26-0, 19 KO. Lujan fell to 38-6-2, 24 KO.
Next up on the undercard is the rematch in the junior middleweight division between Pawel Wolak and Delvin Rodriguez. These two battled in what was a fight of the year candidate in July, which ended in a draw.
