Ontario, California - Rugged former title challenger Oscar Escandon (26-5, 18 KOs) stunned undefeated Filipino featherweight contender Jhack Tepora (23-1, 17 KOs) with a crushing first-round knockout in a scheduled 10-round bout.

Escandon landed a perfectly placed left hook to Tepora's body, sending him to the canvas on his hands and knees. That is where he remained as referee Jack Reiss counted him out and gave Escandon the victory. The end came at 1:30 of the first round.

"This fight was very important to me because I know I needed to win if I wanted to continue forward with my career,'' Escandon said.

"I know I have a lot of fight left in me. I just want to thank my team. Ruben Guerrero, my trainer, was on me about listening to him in the corner and all his instructions worked perfect. I want to thank the PBC and Bob Santos for always believing in me. I give all the glory to God for this victory."

On the same card, undefeated super welterweight prospect Raymond Guajardo (5-0, 4 KOs) score a devastating first-round knockout of Donnis Reed (3-5, 2 KOs) in a scheduled four-rounder.

Guarjardo landed a six-punch combination, punctuated with a powerful right-left combo that dropped Reed to the canvas. The referee waved off the fight, giving Guajardo the KO victory at 1:40 of the first round.

"I'm always looking to get my opponents out, so that was the first thing I wanted to do,'' Guajardo said. "I think I had landed a hook before that and I saw I had hurt him, so that's when I went in for the kill. Everything happened naturally after that."
