Palms Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas -

Rising featherweight contender Roberto Marroquin (19-0, 14KOs) won a unanimous eight round decision over a tough Gilberto Sanchez Leon (28-9-2, 10KOs). Marroquin was busier and outboxed Leon in almost every single round. The tough Leon never stopped coming and made Marroquin put in the work to get this win. The scores were 78-74, 77-75 and 77-75.

Light heavyweight prospect Mike Lee (4-0, 3KOs), who sold a lot of tickets based on the crowd reaction, stopped Pablo Gomez (1-3-1, 1KOs) in the first round. Lee got stunned early with a few punches. Out of nowhere, he landed a counter-hook that sent Gomez down face first and his mouthpiece went flying in the air. Gomez beat the count, barely. Lee followed up with a combination of punches to send Gomez down again and the referee stopped it.

In better than expected six round super lightweight bout, Anthony Lenk (10-1, 5KOs) stopped a game Terry Buterbaugh (6-5-1, 3KOs) in the sixth round. The highlight of the night came in the fifth round, when Buterbaugh caught Lenk with some flush power shots, but Lenk fired right back with a two punch combo to send Buterbaugh down to his knees. In the sixth and final round, they traded punches at close range until Lenk got him in trouble and referee Tony Weeks stepped in to stop the action.

Hot super bantamweight prospect Jesse Magdaleno (3-0, 3KOs) crushed Jaime Gutierrez (3-5, 0KOs) in the first round. Magdaleno went to work quick with a series of punches that caused a delayed knockdown from Gutierrez. He made it up but quickly went back down from a hook to the body as referee Russel Mora waved it off.

A six round heavyweight bout saw Mexican prospect Andy Ruiz (9-0, 6KOs) win a six round unanimous decision over Alvaro Morales (5-9-5, 0KOs). Neither of these two fighters were in great shape. Morales weighed 296-pounds, while Ruiz was 259. Their training camps must have been supervised by James Toney. There were some decent exchanges, here and there, but nothing spectacular. The scores were 59-55, 59-55 and 60-54.

The show began with a battle of light heavyweights, and Japanese prospect Hiromitsu Miura (5-0, 3KOs) of Tokyo stopped Ramiro Bueno (1-2, 0KOs) in the first round. Miura appeared to be too strong, landing a barrage of punches to send Bueno down. He beat the count, but a quick moment later the fight was stopped when Miura followed up with a well-placed combination of punches.

Mexican heart at its best. No running, no hugging, no BS. Just fighting like men should. Acosta was hugging too much and running, typical Afro-colored.
