ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- It doesn't make any sense to pretend that this undercard is worth much, but talented welterweight kell Brook is on it, and Edison Miranda and Yordanis Despaigne are on it in tune-ups for a potential rematch of last year's excellent light heavyweight bout, so it's worth a tiny something. Keep coming back for chronological updates in the event that Brook, Miranda or Despaigne are your favorite fighters, or just because you're a completist.

Bowie Tupou took a unanimous decision from Donnell Holmes in a fight that had to have been meant to entertain the crowd with a couple high-knockout heavyweights, because it's not as if either of these men were future prospects. They succeeded only in part; the early part of the bout was like a sparring session, the second half a bit more competitive and entertaining. The two best things about the fight had nothing to do with the fight itself. Holmes calls himself "The Real Touch Of Sleep," no doubt finding Davarryl Williamson's claim to the nickname lacking in authenticity.  His trunks said "Mr. T" on the front, which matched his mohawk, and "Oprah Winfrey" on the back, which matched nothing. Tupou, for his part, kept spitting, on the ring apron, over the ring ropes, and even over Holmes' shoulder in clinches. It was gross. Show some manners in there when you're trying to beat a man senseless. Tupou was the aggressor early and Holmes was too inactive. Holmes decided to do some stuff in the 5th round, finally, and the fight was hard to score thereafter, except for the 7th when Tupou dropped Holmes with a right hand. Holmes tried to go for the KO in the 10th and connected on a lot of flush right hands as Tupou tried to run out the clock on his bicycle. No luck for Holmes. Final scores read 95-94, 96-93 and 95-94 for Tupou.
