Kedem Wins on Points

Eilon Kedem defeated Pedro Antonio Salcedo by unanimous decision earlier tonight. One judge had Kedem sweeping all six rounds, another gave Kedem five rounds, and the final judge counted four for Kedem. The boxer from Herzelia, Israel improves to 11-3-4 with 7 KOs. Salcedo falls to 3-3 with 2 KOs.

Kedem is still slated to fight in three weeks on April 15 at Roseland Ballroom in New York. He's scheduled to take on Elton Dharry (2-5-1, 0 KOs). Dharry, who has never won outside of his native Guyana, is suppose to fight tomorrow as well, so take this pairing with a grain of salt. For now, it'll be a six round bout at junior featherweight.
