  Las Vegas Quick Undercard Results  
By William Trillo
Lightweight Ryan Garcia (19-0, 16 KO’s) wasted no time against Romero Duno (21-2, 16 KO’s). In a whitewash Garcia blasted out Duno at the 1:18 mark of round one. For his efforts Garcia takes home the vacant World Boxing Council Silver Light Title, World Boxing Organization NABO Light Titles.

Flyweight Seniesa Estrada (18-0, 8 KO’s) overcame an early attack by Marlen Esparza (7-1, 1 KO) and went on to take charge. After an accidental headbutt that opened a huge cut on Esparzas head the blood was flowing. After round nine there was a lot of confusion. Did Esparza quit on the stool or was it going to the scorecards? After a delay it went to the cards 90-81 89-82 88-83 all in favor of Estrada. Those scores seemed way to wide but nevertheless Estrada earned the interim World Boxing Association World Female Fly Title.

Bob Arum’s Top Rank partnered with ESPN to put together what was billed as “A Match Made In Heaven”, and that tagline resonated for good reason: Russian, Artur Beterbiev and Ukrainian, Oleksandr Gvozdyk, the IBF and WBC light heavyweight champions respectively, had amassed an impressive combined record of 31-0 with 28 knockouts. With both titles on the line, hardly anyone saw this fight going the distance; one man would assert his dominance and end the fight before the allotted 12 rounds.

The first round was pretty uneventful. The fighters were testing each other out a bit, with Angel being a bit more aggressive at this early stage. He liked to use combinations quite a bit straight away as well. all that changed in the second, when a quick and very hard right hand put Ruiz down and out at 2:02 of the second round, handing Angel his first career loss.

  Supremacy Showdown Becomes
Embarrassing Throw Down
 
By William Trillo
It was supposed to be a rematch of their hotly contested first battle but before Ronald Johnson (17-1, 4 KO’s) and Sergio Ramirez (18-7, 10 KO’s) could remove the tape from their hands a full scale riot broke out inside the Pico Rivera Sports Arena after the fight. The riot began after an irate Johnson, who was getting cups of beer thrown his way, jumped out of the ring and rushed the beer throwing offenders, looking to take matters into his own hands. At that point it was every man for himself as bedlam ensued. Chairs went flying and punches were thrown for what seemed to be minutes before the violence began to slowly tone down. Local Sheriffs showed up on scene soon thereafter and the crowd was escorted out without further incident.

Professional wrestling legend Ric Flair once said, "to be the man, you gotta beat the man!". I share the same sentiment, except in Saturday night's main event, nobody told Sergey Derevyanchenko just how badly he had to beat the man, Gennady Golovkin a.k.a GGG, to become the man. "Big Drama Show" lived up to its promise right from the undercards to the post-fight conference: multiple first-round knockouts, a broken leg, fight of the year candidate, in-ring drama, promoter war of words, questions around a fighter's pre-fight health, it all happened at Madison Square Garden on the 5th of October.
