Welterweight Evan Anthony Sanchez (7-0, 5 KO’s) impressed the fans with a spectacular KO over Daniel Evangelista Jr (20-12-2, 16 KO’s). Wasting no time the skilled southpaw dropped Evangelista midway through round one with a picture left hook. Evangelista got to his feet and survived the round but the bout was going to end soon. Looking sharp Sanchez again went to work. After doing damage both to the body and head another left hook was the final blow. Sanchez crushed Evangelista forcing the ref to halt the bout at the 1:52 mark of round two.

Lightweight Alejandro Reyes (2-0, 2 KO’s) and Nelson Colon (4-1, 3 KO’s) went at it in another Mexico vs. Puerto Rico, “Quien es mas Macho” battle. Although both men have good KO records this one went the four round distance. In the end Reyes took the battle on the scorecards 40-36 twice and 39-37 giving him the unanimous decision nod.

Super Middleweight Bektemir Melikuziev (5-0, 4 KO’s) dismantled a hapless Oscar Cortes (27-6, 14 KO’s) in the first round of a lopsided affair. Cortes was the literal version of a human punching bag. The bout didn’t last 3 minutes. Melikuziev landed a blow off the soft underbelly of Cortes and his night was over.

Super Featherweight Tenochtitlan Nava (7-2-1, 1 KO) and Anthony Casillas (8-1-1, 4 KO’s) opened the show with a no holds slugfest. The two fighters were punches in bunches for the entire six round scrap that was a great starter to the night. Final scores gave Nava a razor thin unanimous victory on all cards 58-56.
