Berchelt-Miura HBO Tripleheader - LIVE Results

By Francisco Salazar

INGLEWOOD - Lightweight contender Mercito Gesta (31-1-2, with 17 KOs) stopped Martin Honorio in round eight. Gesta, who defeated Gilberto Gonzalez in his last bout on April 1, dropped Honorio in round four. Honorio (33-11-1, with 16 KOs) did use his ring savvy to land a series of right hands, but Gesta utilized his athleticism and quickness to connect repeatedly with left hands to the head. A right-left hand staggered Honorio (although it also looked as Honorio may have lost his balance), prompting referee Thomas Taylor to step in and stop the bout at 18 seconds of round eight. 

In an upset, journeyman Diuhl Olguin (11-7-2, with 9 KOs) dropped featherweight contender Horacio Garcia twice en route to an eight round unanimous decision. Olguin dropped Garcia with a left-right combination in round two. Garcia (32-3-1, with 22 KOs) pressed the action during the middle rounds, but was dropped again, this time in round 8. Scores were 77-73, 77-73, and 76-74 for Olguin, who entered tonight's bout having lost his last three bouts. 

Featherweight Manny Robles Jr. (13-0, with 5 KOs) stopped Christian Esquivel in the fifth round. The fight was competitive throughout the fight as the shorter Esquivel (29-12, with 22 KOs) hung in with Robles. The fight was inexplicably stopped at 1:08 of the fifth round when Esquivel's corner threw in the towel, all the while Esquivel was throwing punches. 

In the opening bout, lightweight Recky Dulay (10-2, with 7 KOs) knocked out Jaime Arboleda (10-1, with 8 KOs) at 2:03 of the third round.
