Jose ‘Chelo’ Gonzalez remained unbeaten after an injured right hand forced Joseph Laryea to quit on his stool prior to the third round of their Telefutura headiner Saturday evening in Toa Baja, Puerto Rico.

The fight was a foregone conclusion on paper, but Gonzalez did his best to play out the string. The undefeated Puerto Rican fought behind a steady jab to keep Laryea at his desired distance for the duration of the brief affair. Rapid fire combinations had the African challenger in trouble early on as Gonzalez was equally effective to the head and body.

A stoppage win seemed inevitable, but Laryea decided to expedite matters. A bruised knuckle forced the journeyman to remain on his stool, unable to answer the bell for the start of the third round. 

Gonzalez advances to 20-0 (15KO) with the win, as he continues to move up the lightweight rankings. Laryea takes the long flight home back to Ghana with yet another loss, falling to 14-8 (11KO).

In the televised co-feature, New Jersey’s own Glen Tapia stays red hot after his latest in-ring achievement, stopping Carlos Garcia in the 1st round of a gross mismatch on every level.

Tapia has carved out a nice career for himself, giving fans a thrill in his Northeastern U.S. Saturday’s bout marked his debut in Puerto Rico, in which he fought like a man who was double-parked in a tow away zone. A left hook was all it took for the unbeaten super welterweight prospect, as Garcia was counted out at 2:00 of round one.

The win marks the third straight knockout for Tapia, who improves to 14-0 (8KO). Garcia has dropped four straight as he falls to 6-11-1 (6KO).

In a considerable upset, Andres Navarro scored a shockingly one-sided decision over previously unbeaten Rafael Gonzalez. Scores were 79-73 (twice) and 80-72 for Navarro, who is now 7-4-1 (4KO). Gonzalez loses for the first time as a pro, falling to 7-1 (6KO).

All three bouts aired live on Telefutura’s Solo Boxeo Tecate series. The next installment – Saturday, July 14 - also takes place in Puerto Rico.

Off-TV results (provided by Puerto Rico Best Boxing Promotions):
Manny Rodriguez TKO2 (2:48) Jamie Gonzalez
Kenneth Diaz KO1 (1:59) Ramon Sanchez
Fauris Capellan KO1 (1:31) Jose Santiago
Jonel Nieves KO1 (2:18) Jose Ruiz
Pablo de Jesus TKO1 Nathaniel Vazquez
