SHUMENOV DOMINATES ORNELAS
Beibut Shumenov vs Enrique Ornelas
Disclosure: Ornelas is my wife’s cousin. From the opening bell Shumenov completely dominated the fight. Almost at will the WBA Light Heavyweight Champion was able to connect with body shots, combinations and
uppercuts. Most of the fight resembled a sparring session with Ornelas against the ropes his hands covering his face and Shumenov doing damage to the body and the head.

The judges scorecards were Burt Clemens 120-108 Dick Houck 120-108 and Robert Hoyle 120-108.
