Puerto Rican knockout artist Angel "Tito" Acosta (19-1, 19 KOs) defended his WBO Light Flyweight World Title against Mexican warrior Abraham Rodriguez (23-2, 11 KOs) via thunderous knockout at 1:02 of the second round of the scheduled 12-round main event of the Oct. 13 edition of Golden Boy Fight Night on Facebook Watch at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas. The action was streamed live globally on Facebook Watch via the Golden Boy Fight Night Page.

"I want to thank my team and my family," said Angel Acosta. "I couldn't have done this without them. We were working on the left hook in the gym. My team told me to use my jab to keep looking for him, and then I found him. I want to fight this year or when the year stars."
Bakhram Murtzaliev (14-0, 11 KOs) of Grozny, Russia scored a 10-round unanimous decision against Norberto Gonzalez (24-11, 14 KOs) of Nuevo Leon, Mexico to retain his USNBC Super Welterweight Title. Murtzaliev won with three scores of 80-72.

"I'm in Vegas, baby! So, I got to dance and have fun," said Rashidi Ellis. "Corral's a veteran and has been in a lot of tough fights, but I did what I needed to do. He complained to the ref because he was looking for excuses. He was looking for a way out."
