From Turning Stone Resort & Casino in fair Verona, New York, junior middleweight Serhiy "The Razor" Dzinziruk and Jonathan "Mantequilla" Gonzalez trudged their way through 12 rounds to a split draw in a bout that saw neither fighter raise their stock much.
It's not clear what exactly fans expected from the bout, as neither man is all that well-known in the U.S., but even low expectations might not have been met by the muddy and frustrating action.
As is often the case between two solid amateurs polished by experience, round 1 was slow and likely could have gone either way, but the 2nd, 3rd and 4th rounds were tilting in Dzinziruk's direction slowly, one jab to the body and strafing southpaw right hook at a time. It wasn't remotely a brisk pace, but it worked for Serhiy, and Gonzalez skipping to his lou wasn't doing much to punctuate his weight advantage.
