Venezuelan puncher Ismael Barroso (22-3-2, 20 KOs) scored an upset 12-round unanimous decision against Canadian contender Yves Ulysse Jr. (18-2, 9 KOs) to capture the WBA Gold Super Lightweight Title in the main event of Thursday Night Fights on Dec. 5 at the Hangar at the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa, Calif. Barroso won with scores of 111-117, 113-115 and 113-115. The fights were streamed live on DAZN and on Facebook Watch via the Golden Boy Fight Night Page beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT. The series is also available on regional sports networks around the nation.

“I want to thank God for this win,” said Ismael Barroso.”I didn’t just win on my strength; I won by the will of God. My trainer told me to push hard and so I won the championship rounds. I want to thank my whole team and everyone who stood by me.”

D’Mitrius “Big Meech” Ballard (20-0-1, 13 KOs) of Temple Hills, Maryland and Yamaguichi Falcao (16-1-1, 7 KOs) of San Paulo, Brazil fought to a 10-round majority draw in a bout that was for the then and still vacant NABF Middleweight Title. One judge scored the bout 97-93 for Ballard, which was overruled by two scores of 95-95.

“I thought I came stronger in the later rounds,” said D’Mitrius Ballard. “I felt I won this fight. I controlled the pace, walked him down and finish strong. But this is boxing. What can you do?”

“I felt I did better,” said Yamaguchi Falcao. “I respect the judges’ decision. He is a very good fighter. I trained for several months, and this was not the result I expected. But now I want to train even harder for the next fight.”

Mihai Nistor (1-0, 1 KO) of Bucharest, Romania made his professional debut with a third-round knockout win against Christian Mariscal (13-5, 6 KOs) of Tijuana, Mexico in a scheduled six-rounder in the heavyweight division. The fight was stopped at 2:00 of the aforementioned round.

George Rincon (9-0, 6 KOs) of Dallas, Texas defeated Antonio Flores (8-2, 2 KOs) of Northglenn, Colorado via knockout in a scheduled four-round super lightweight fight. Rincon ended the clash at :34 of the fifth round.

“I’m always looking for the knockout,” said George Rincon.”He was a tough fighter with a good chin, so I had to make some adjustments. Then, I found the right shot that ended the fight.”

Jason Quigley (17-1, 13 KOs) of Donegal, Ireland bounced back from his first and only loss with a dominant stoppage victory against Abraham Cordero (13-5-2, 7 KOs) of Guadalajara, Mexico in a scheduled eight-round super middleweight clash. Quigley ended matters at 1:36 minutes of the third round.
