MARGULES CONGRATULATES GEORGE, MOLINA AND QUINONES FOR TELEVISED
VICTORIES FRIDAY NIGHT
Leon Margules, President of Warriors Boxing, wishes to congratulate his fighters, IBF #10 super middleweight Don “Da Bomb” George (23-2-1, 20 KOs), IBF #6, WBC #8 junior middleweight “King” Carlos Molina (20-5-2, 6 KOs) and Cuban light heavyweight Vilier Quinonez (5-0, 3 KOs) for their impressive victories Friday night at Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Oklahoma, and live on ESPN Friday Night Fights.
Chicago native George scored a TKO 6 over opponent Dionisio Miranda after the one-sided bout was stopped between the sixth and seventh rounds. A powerful puncher, George stalked his Colombian opponent behind thudding one/two combinations. He started catching Miranda with regularity in the fourth. After a couple rounds of eating strong right hands, the normally durable Miranda had had enough.
George was originally scheduled to face Adonis Stevenson in an IBF eliminator bout, but Stevenson was forced to withdraw with a hand injury.
True to form, Molina dominated opponent Damian Frias over 10 shutout rounds. Frias had no idea what to do with the tricky Molina. Coming in behind fast combinations to the head and body, Molina used angles masterfully to befuddle Frias and win every round on all three judges’ scorecards.
On the undercard, Cuban power puncher Vilier Quinones dominated super durable opponent Eddie Tigs of Texas over four rounds. Quinones showed good schooling in mixing his shots to the head and body while seldom eating any return fire. Tigs is tough and took a beating many opponents wouldn’t or couldn’t withstand. The scores were 40-36 across the board.
“Donovan looked terrific tonight and Adonis Stevenson is probably lucky he got hurt. We’ll be going into that fight this Fall with great confidence based on how good he looked. Carlos was sensational. Frias can fight and he just had no clue what to do with Carlos. It was the kind of performance that an elite fighter would put in against a contender-level opponent. Vilier continues his development and showed great poise when faced with an opponent who doesn’t succumb to his power. I am very happy with all three outcomes and proud of my fighters.”
