At the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California, bantamweight contender Eric Morel (44-2, 22 KOs) stopped Luis Maldonado (37-5-1, 28 KOs) in the fourth round. Morel outgunned Maldonado, a late replacement for the injured Martin Castillo. Maldonado went down in round one. Morel is trying to get a fight with WBC/WBO champion Nonito Donaire. The Puerto Rican boxer is possibly going to return in the month of June.
In the co-feature, hot super bantamweight Randy Caballero (9-0, 5 KOs) continued his rise with a second round stoppage of Felix Perez (7-3, 3 KOs). Caballero overwhelmed his opponent with power and accurate punching.
