After Gonzalez got up, he was dropped again with another left hook to the body. After Gonzalez (12-8-1, 7 KOs) got up a second time, Lopez dropped him with a left hook to the head. Referee Marcos Rosales waved the fight over after the third knockdown, stopping the bout at 1:40.

Bantamweight Jundy Maroan made his United States debut a successful one, stopping Ernie Marquez in the third of a scheduled eight round bout. After a competitive first round, the southpaw Maroan dropped Marquez with a counter right hand to the head. Marquez got up, but received more punishment from Maroan before the bell sounded. In the third round, Maroan dropped Marquez (9-12-2, 3 KOs ) again with another right hand to the head. After getting up, Maroan landed a hard left to the body that backed Marquez up in pain. Referee Dr. Lou Moret spared Marquez from further punishment and waved the fight over at 1:05. Hailing from Zamboanga Del Sur in the Philippines , Maroan goes to 15-0-1, 12 KOs .

Welterweight Francisco Santana stopped John Worthy in the first of a scheduled eight round bout. Santana dropped Worthy with an overhand right hand to the head. Worthy (3-4, 1 KO) got up on shaky legs and tried to hold on. Santana put him on the defensive, throwing hooks and crosses even if they were mostly blocked. However, Santana landed another right cross that staggered Worthy across the ring. Referee Marcos Rosales saw enough, stepping in and stopping the bout at 2:43. Santana, from nearby Santa Barbara, improves to 14-3-1, 7 KOs.

In a fight between unbeaten bantamweights, Abigail Castaneda and Maria Suarez fought to a competitive and crowd-pleasing four round majority decision draw. Suarez was able to control the action in the first two rounds, beating Castaneda to the punch. However, Castaneda (3-0-2) controlled the second half of the fight, repeatedly landing counter right hands to the head of Suarez, at times snapping her head back. Both had their moments in the final moments of the fourth round. One judge scored the bout 39-37 for Suarez, while the other two judges scored the bout 38-38. Suarez, from nearby Santa Maria, goes to 2-0-1.

Super bantamweight Roy Tapia won a hard-fought four round unanimous decision over Pablo Batres. Although all three judges scored the bout 40-36, the scores did not reflect the competitiveness of the fight. Although Tapia landed the harder and more effective punches, he would get countered on the inside as Batres did his best work there. Tapia could have used his jab more, but did enough to win and improve to 4-0-1, 2 KOs. Batres falls to 2-3-1. 

In featherweight action, Azat Hovhannisyan won a four round unanimous decision over Raymond Chacon. Hovhannisyan (4-1, 3 KOs) dropped the southpaw Chacon with a counter right hand to the head to end the first round. He would drop Chacon again in the second with another right hand to the head. To his credit, Chacon (4-5) fought back bravely after each knockdown, but did not have the power to keep Hovhannisyan off of him. Hovhannisyan suffered a cut on his forehead, due to an accidental headbutt, but did not let it faze him until the final bell. All three judges scored the bout 40-36 in favor of Hovhannisyan.
