Laredo Energy Arena, Laredo, Texas - Former champion Juan Diaz (37-4, 19KOs) continues his comeback with a fifth round stoppage of Adailton De Jesus (30-8, 24KOs). Diaz beat down De Jesus in every round until the Brazilian boxer's corner threw in the towel.
Welterweight prospect Jose Ramirez (5-0, 4KOs) destroyed Mike Maldonado (6-2, 1KO) in the first round, scoring two big knockdowns and then finishing him off.
Welterweight prospect Alex Saucedo (10-0, 7KOs) destroyed Ramon Pena (7-4, 5KOs) in the first round with a series of shots to the head and body. Pena was down twice.
Lightweight Denis Shafikov (32-0-1, 18KOs) stopped Santos Benavides (23-4-2, 17KOs) in six rounds. Benavides was down in rounds two, three and six. He never came out for the seventh round.
