Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas - In an untelevised contest, unbeaten super bantamweight prospect Jesse Magdaleno (7-0, 5KOs) demolished Gil Garcia (5-2, 1KOs) in the first round. It was a war from the first bell, with both boxers swinging for the fences. Garcia went down twice, and began to get battered with unanswered punches before referee Robert Byrd saved him from further punishment. 

NABF super featherweight champion Diego Magdaleno (21-0, 7KOs) won a dominating ten round unanimous decision over Emmanuel Lucero (26-8-1, 14KOs). Lucero suffered a cut on the bridge of his nose. He nearly went down in the seventh, but the ropes held him up - which promoted referee Robert Byrd to rule it as a knockdown. The scores were 100-89, 100-87 and 100-88.

Lightweight prospect Mercito Gesta (24-0-1, 12KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over a very game Ricardo Dominguez (34-7-2, 21KOs). The scores were 97-92, 98-92 and 99-91. Gest scored a knockdown in the third, when he caught Dominguez sleeping with a good straight counter. Dominguez got knocked off-balance and his glove touched the mat, which promoted referee Joe Cortez to issue a count.

Hot super bantamweight prospect Gabino Saenz (6-0, 5KOs) bloodied and busted up Sergio Cristobal (3-3, 0KOs), but failed to finish him off. Saenz going the distance for the first time in his career, with all three judges scoring it 60-54.

Junior middleweight prospect Mikael Zewski (12-0, 8KOs), now with Top Rank, stopped Gundrick King (16-7, 11KOs) in the fifth round. Zewski took it slow in the first four rounds, but he exploded in the fifth. King was rocked and hurt bad in the fifth. He took a voluntary knee and raised himself up at the count of nine. Zewski jumped on him and pounded him with punches until the referee Robert Byrd stepped in to wave it off.

In a hard fought six round contest, Filipino super featherweight Allan Tanada (11-1-2, 5KOs) won a close majority decision over Juan Ruiz (23-8, 7KOs). The scores were 57-57, 58-56 and 58-56.

Middleweight contender Matt Korobov (17-0, 10KOs) knocked out Latif Mundy (10-4-1, 4KOs) in the fourth round. Korobov landed a combination and Mundy went down for the full count of ten.
