Chilemba Cruises to Victory over Saunders

Light heavyweight Isaac Chilemba controlled the action Saturday night at the Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut during his fight with journeyman Rayco Saunders. Chilemba won every round of the bout earning a unanimous decision victory thanks to three scores of 80-72.

Chilemba was originally scheduled to face two-time champion Zsolt Erdei on HBO, but Erdei backed out due to a cracked rib. That left Chilemba without an opponent until about a week out from fight night. With the win, Chilemba, who weighed 177 pounds, improves to 20-1-1 with 9 KOs. Saunders, who was 175, tumbles to 22-17-2 with 9 KOs.

In a just world, Chilemba's wide win over Saunders coupled with the misfortune of Erdei's injury would land Isaac another date on HBO in the near future against a top light heavyweight. That's exactly what he desires.
