Highlights from the explosive December 13th SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING event headlined by welterweights Amir Khan and Devon Alexander, while also featuring Keith Thurman, Abner Mares and Jermall Charlo.
Miguel Cruz battled David Grayton in a scheduled 10-round 147-pound bout on November 21, 2017, at The Coliseum in St. Petersburg, Florida. This fight was broadcast live on FS1 as part of the Premier Boxing Champions series. Cruz came out in round one as the aggressor, establishing his dominance early. In round three, Cruz stunned Grayton in the final 30 seconds of the round and both fighters fell to the canvas as Grayton tried to hold onto Cruz. After the first few rounds, however, Grayton began to find his rhythm and became more of a challenge for Cruz which caused Cruz to be more cautious and hold some of his punches. In round eight, an accidental headbutt caused a cut under Cruz's right eye. The fight was paused momentarily early in the ninth round so a doctor could examine the cut. The ringside doctor allowed the fight to continue. Both fighters let their hands go in the final few rounds and the fight ended up going the distance. In the end, the judges awarded Miguel Cruz a unanimous decision victory. His record improves to 17-0, 11KOs. Visit PremierBoxingChampions.com for info.

In the biggest test of his fledgling career, rising heavyweight Gerald Washington took a step up to face rugged veteran Amir Mansour in a PBC on FS1 main event from Shelton, Wash. Washington controlled the fight in the early rounds by making the best use out of his notable size advantage, using his jab and maintaining the fight from the outside. But Mansour stayed aggressive and in the middle rounds began to work his way inside, making the fight uncomfortable for the former USC defensive end. Washington rallied for a strong finish, and the fight ended with both fighters feeling as though they'd done enough to get the win. Neither left satisfied, as the fight was scored a Majority Draw.

In his first fight in 10 months, former 2-division world champion Devon Alexander made his PBC debut on ESPN, taking on tough veteran Aron Martinez. Martinez entered the fight having gone the distance and taking a close decision loss to Robert Guerrero in early June.
From go, Martinez made the fight tough on Alexander by getting inside and forcing Alexander to fight where he looked uncomfortable. Alexander did a good job of still controlling the fight from the inside in the early rounds, but Martinez's relentless attack ultimately wore him down.
Bit by bit, Martinez piled up the points in the second half of the fight and ultimately came away with a Unanimous Decision victory, marking the biggest win of his career. In turn, Martinez's 2015 résumé now sets him up for the next step up the 147-pound ladder.
