Unbeaten WBC #1 lightweight Urbano Antillon (26-0, 19 KOs) scored a fifth round TKO over Tyrone Harris (23-5, 15 KOs) on Friday night at the New Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Antillon dropped Harris twice in round five befre the bout was stopped at 2:23.
Former "Contender: Season One"star Alphonso Gomez (19-4-2, 9 KOs) stopped Juan Buendia (14-3-1, 8 KOs) in round eight of an exciting welterweight bout. Both boxers were cut by a fifth round headbutt but Alfonso's cut was a bad horizontal gash on the right eyebrow. Then at the sixth round it happened again. Both Buendia and Gomez were covered in blood as they slugged it out. In the eighth round Gomez gave Buendia a blasting left to the rib cage and Buendia went down in pain. Although Buendia beat the count, he kept shaking his head 'no' when asked if he wished to continue and referee Robert Byrd waved it off at 1:07 of the eighth round.
