By William Trillo @ Ringside

For the first four rounds Diego Pacheco (16-0, 13 KOs) was surveying the landscape and gauging his distance against the crafty Enrique Collazo (16-3-1, 11 KOs). Once Pacheco zeroed in he set his right hand on a seek and destroy mission. It wasnt long before those bombs hit their mark. At the 2:29 mark of round five Pacheco clipped Collazos chin and that sent the man to the canvas. Moments later Pacheco was landing at will leaving the ref no choice but to stop the onslaught. With the victory Pacheco grabbed the vacant WBC United States Super Middleweight strap.

In a battle of Super Lightweights Aaron Aponte (6-0-1, 2 KOs) and Fernando Angel Molina (8-0-1, 3 KOs) slugged it out, each hitting the canvas once. Over the course of the eight-round slugfest each fighter had their moments. In the end the judges could not agree who had the upper hand. Scores read 76-74 for Aponte, 76-74 for Molina and 75-75 even making this one a Split decision Draw.

Marc Castro (8-0, 6 KOs) hit Kevin Montiel Mendoza (7-2-2, 3 KOs) with a right uppercut that he never saw coming and it was Lights Out! The Lightweight from Fresno tagged Mendoza with that fight stopping haymaker in the at the 1:40 mark of the fifth round of an otherwise Ho-Hum fight.

In the opening bout of the day Super Flyweight Anthony Herrera (3-0-1, 3 KOs) defeated Delvin McKinley (4-4-1, 4 KOs) after an accidental headbutt brought the proceedings to a halt at the 19 second mark of round five. At the time of the bouts conclusion Herrera had used a well-placed body attack to assert his dominance. McKinley was showing signs of wanting to get out of this one early and the headbutt opened the door for him to take the exit. The bout went to the scorecards and after five rounds. The judges were in agreement with 50-45 scores in favor of the still undefeated Herrera.
