Cuban cruiserweight Luis "El Leon" Garcia (15-0, 12 KOs) kept his perfect pro record intact with a first-round knockout of his outclassed Mexican opponent Felipe Romero (19-14-1, 13 KOs), fighting out of San Diego.
Shamalov's power punches rocked the much shorter 5'11" Arias in the first round, but Arias stayed off the ropes and boxed much better in the second.
Shamalov and Arias fought a furious pace, especially for heavyweights, in a legitimate six-round "Fight of the Year" candidate.
Arias, the leader of Team Wash Em' Up in the Bronx, won a six-round unanimous decision by scores of 60-54, 59-55, and 58-56.
Remillard pressed the action in the third, peppering Fassinou around the ring in his familiar punishing style, putting Fassinou in his "Sharp Shooter" sights for target practice in the fourth.
Fassinou failed to answer the bell for the fifth round. Maybe I'll have one more fight this year to get in some rounds, and then get ready for a big 2018.
