Like a locomotive heading downhill Featherweight Emanuel Navarrete (32-1, 28 KOs) steamrolled Uriel Lopez (13-14-1, 6 KOs). As per usual Navarrete started slowly but with each and every passing round he would keep turning up the heat.

Lopez must have thought he was trying to stop an out of control freight train by round six. After an onslaught of punches Lopez fell to his knees. When he arose the ref took one look at the fallen foe and called an end to the carnage at the 2:22 mark.

After the bout Navarette stated, "I have the utmost respect for Uriel Lopez. He put forth a courageous effort, but I was coming to win by knockout. I want to unify titles, but if nobody accepts my challenge, I'll move up to featherweight."

Featherweight Carlos Ornelas (25-3, 14 KOs) found out why they call Edwin Palomares (13-3-1, 4 KOs) The Octopus. On paper this one looked like a sure win for Ornelas, but thats why they make em fight.

Like a fighter with eight arms Palomares was nonstop punching until and exhausted Orenelas collapsed to a knee at the 2:23 mark of the fifth round. Moments later the corner threw in the towel and Palomares took the upset win of the night.

Featherweight Sergio Alfredo Chirino Sanchez (15-1, 8 KOs) threw a left uppercut that hit the chin of Gustavo Alan Pina (8-3, 5 KOs) at the start of round two and that was all she wrote. No need to count here; Sanchez KOd Pina cold at the 6 second mark of round two.

Flyweights Ivan Armando Garcia Carrillo (5-0, 3 KOs) and Roberto Palomares (5-4-1, 1 KO) opened the ESPN broadcast with an evenly matched 6 round battle. Neither man really looked like they felt comfortable in the ring until about the fourth round. At best this was a tentative fight by both men. Final scores of 59-55 across the board helped Garcia Carillo keep his perfect record intact.
