From the Quiet Cannon in Montebello, California, Tom Loeffler’s, 360 Promotions put together a solid card for Hollywood Fight Nights. In the main event of the evening Super Middleweight contender Cem Kilic (16-1, 11 KO’s) destroyed Tony Hernandez (6-13-2, 4 KO’s).

In this mismatch Hernandez was dropped once in the first round and once in the second round in which he could not recover. The much stronger Kilic started the second knockdown with a crisp left hook to the jaw of Hernandez which visibly shook him up. In a delayed reaction while Kilic continued to punch, Hernandez collapsed to the floor.

He did manage to get up but referee Raul Caiz could see that Hernandez was through. Caiz called the fight at 51 seconds of the second round. Kilic garners his 11 knockout and 16th win against just one loss.

In what was labeled as the main event of the evening, was really nothing more than a light workout for Callum Walsh (2-0, 2 KO’s) as he floored Gael Ibarra (5-7, 4 KO’s) with a tremendous left hand.

Walsh never even broke a sweat as he demolished Ibarra at 33 seconds of the first round. Walsh remains perfect, 2 wins, 2 knockouts.

Hot prospect and son of referee Ray Corona, Adrian Corona (9-0-1, 2 KO’s) had his hands full with a tough competitor in Smokin Joe Perez (15-6-4, 10 KO’s). Both landed heavy punches but neither was able to rock the other.

The fight ended in a majority draw with one judge giving the fight to Corona 58-56, while the other two judges scored it 57-57 and 57-57.

In a battle of the light heavyweights Marco Deckman’s (8-1, 7 KO’s) brutal bodywork overwhelmed Victor Fonseca Calderas (18-11-1, 14 KO’s).

Deckman continuously pounded a right hammer to the left side of Calderas gut until Calderas finally took a knee and said he had had enough. Deckman by knockout at 2:48 of the 4th round.

Up and comer Eric Priest (7-0, 5 KO’s) lit up David Lopez (4-3, 3 KO’s) knocking him out in 17 seconds of the first round. Priest hit Lopez with a tommy gun of punches one of which snapped back the head of Lopez causing the referee to step-in to stop the fight. Lopez never had a chance. Eric Priest is ready to step up the competition and we look forward to seeing him again.

In the opening bout of the evening undefeated pugilist, Omar Cande Trinidad (7-0-1, 5 KO’s) remained unbeaten outpointing Ivan Varela (5-4, 3 KO’s) in this featherweight match up. All judges had it unanimously for Trinidad 59-55, 59-55, and 59-55 respectively.

In the Walk Out bout Dariial Kuchmenov (3-0, 2 KO’s) ruined the debut of Erik Hanley (0-1) by catching him with a catastrophic right hand that put Hanley on his back. The powerful punch ended Hanley’s hopes of survival. Recovery was not in Hanley’s playbook. Kuchmenov remains unbeaten.
