By Ryan Burton, photo by Chris Farina

Thomas & Mack Center, Las Vegas - Las Vegas resident Jessie Vargas (23-0) defeated a game Ray Narh (26-4) in their welterweight bout that served as the main event for UniMas' Solo Boxeo series. The fight was fought mostly on the inside throughout the fight as both fighters concentrated on landing power shots. Both men landed several clean punches throughout the fight but neither man appeared hurt until the final seconds when Vargas floored Narh. The African beat the count but was far behind on the scorecards. The final tallies read 97-92 and 98-91 twice. 

Las Vegas native Jessie Magdaleno (17-0) impressed his hometown fans with his three round destruction of Raul Hidalgo (19-10). Magdaleno dropped Hildago in the first round as the difference in the fighters hand speed and power was very apparent.

Magdaleno kept up the pressure and the attacking in the second round, stunning Hildago on several occasions. The onslaught continued in the third round as Magdaleno dropped Hildago two more times which prompted the ref to stop the fight at the 2:55 mark.

Jesus Gutierrez (10-0) landed a huge right hand to knockout Ivan Zalvala (5-3-1) at the 2:21 mark of the 1st round. Zavala was down for a few minutes after the knockout but appeared okay after getting to his feet. 

Jose Zepeda (17-0) dominated Luis Arceo (28-11-4) over three rounds in their welterweight bout. Zepeda cut Arceo in the first round and sent him to canvas in the second. Arceo rose to his feet and finished the round but the damage was done and his face was a bloody mess. Arceo went down two more times in the third, prompting Jay Nady to call a halt to the bout.

Egidijus Kavaliauskas (4-0) defeated Peter Haro (3-2) via knockout at the :57 mark of the second round in their welterweight bout.  Referee Vic Draculich called a halt to the bout when Haro stopped punching back after Kavaliauskas landed a flurry of punches.

Luis Sedano (1-0) made his debut a successful one with a violent knockout of Norberto Pantaleon (0-2-1). Pantaleon's head bounced off the canvas and he laid on the canvas for several minutes before rising to his feet. The fight was stopped at the 2:52 mark of the 2nd round.

Erick DeLeon improved to 5-0 with a 1st round knockout out of Aaron Acevedo (2-2-2). Acevedo went down from a bodyshot and failed to beat the count. The time of the stoppage was 2:08 of the opening round.
