Falcao, Diaz, Charlo, Gomez, Gausha, Bogere Win

MORE LIVE RESULTS TO COME................

By Francisco Salazar & Luis Sandoval

StubHub Center, Carson, California - 2012 Olympic Bronze Medalist Yamaguchi Falcao won a four round unanimous decision over Francisco Najera. Falcao was fighting for the first time in the United States after making his professional debut in Brazil a few months ago. The bout ended in the fourth round after Falcao and Martin Rios were disqualified for fouling each other. Falcao boxed rather than brawl against Najera (0-2). He boxed well enough to defeat Najera, but still is a work in progress. All three judges scored the bout 40-36 in favor of Falcao.

Joseph "Jojo" Diaz Jr (10-0, 7KOs) defeated Luis Maldonado (38-12-1, 29KOs) over 6 rounds with scores of 60-54 across the board.Both fighters traded often and early but it was Diaz who was landing the cleaner and harder punches. Maldonado was game but was outgunned by the younger Diaz who landed his combinations and looked like the bigger puncher. As the rounds went on, Diaz dominated the fight more and more as he mixed his attack both upstairs and down. After 6 rounds it Diaz scored his 10th victory.

Jermall Charlo (18-0, 14KOs) remained undefeated as he dominated tough veteran Hector Munoz (22-13-1, 14KOs) and stopped him at the end of the 5th round. Charlo started fast as he landed flush uppercuts and cross rights as Munoz's face was already reddened after the first 3 minutes. The punishment would continue for Munoz as it was target practice for Charlo who hit his opponent with every punch in his arsenal. Too tough for his own good, the ringside doctor had to step in and stop the fight at the end of the 5th round as he was simply taking too much punishment from Charlo.

Terrell Gausha (9-0, 5KOs) made easy work of Charles Whittaker (40-15-2, 24KOs) as he simply overwhelmed him over 8 rounds. Gausha used his jab to set up his offense and managed to drop Whittaker with a combination in the 6th round. The 2012 Olympian tried his best to finish his opponent but settled for a unanimous decision with scores of 80-71 across the board.

Welterweight Frankie Gomez scored an impressive second round knockout over Orlando Vasquez. Gomez (17-0, 13 KOs) was the aggressor throughout the brief fight, backing Vasquez up against the ropes. Towards the end of the first round, Gomez unleashed a barrage of punches that dropped Vasquez (12-4-1, 6 KOs) to one knee. After surviving the round, Vasquez remained cautious and on the defensive in the second round, allowing Gomez to initiate all exchanges. A combination to the head midway through the round dropped Vasquez again to one knee. Referee Pat Russell counted Vasquez out at 1:54.

Lightweight Sharif Bogere stopped Arturo Urena in the sixth round. Bogere was coming off a long layoff since his decision loss to Richar Abril last year. Bogere (24-1, 16 KOs) was in control throughout the entire fight, landing almost at will. Urena (26-17-1, 22 KOs) would mount attacks, but his punches had little effect. Bogere increased his aggression with each round and finally in the  sixth, began to repeatedly stun Urena. After a barrage of punches, Urena's corner sparred their fighter further punishment, throwing in the towel at 50 seconds.
