    Ulysses Linares won a decision over Scott Hernandez in the 155-pound weight division on Friday, December 7, to earn Boxer of the Week honors.

    For Linares the victory made up for an earlier defeat to Hernandez during intramural competition. Linares took the fight to Hernandez by coming out fast and making his jab and hook work for him.

    "Ulysses was very effective working combinations to Hernandez' head and body," said assistant boxing coach Capt. Mark Clifford. "The body shots were the key to the bout because they slowed Hernandez down."
