By Ryan Burton

Seconds later Rosado returned the favor and floored Vera who was able to rise to his feet.

Rosado caught Vera at the end of the 5th round to floor the Texan for a second and final time. Vera rose to his feet but was still staggered,  prompting Kenny Bayless to halt the fight.

Garcia landed the harder punches throughout the fight and finally dropped Jiles in the final round.

Herbert Acevedo dominated Raul Tovar, knocking him down three times in route to winning via 3rd round knockout. Tovar was outgunned from the opening bell and was stopped by a bodyshot.

In the evening's opening bout. heavyweight Julian Pollard stopped Boban Simic in the 4th round. Boban took several big shots which prompted the ref to stop  the fight.

tbh this guys would have had a good fight even on a ring the ropes are a pretty big part of brawls sometimes guys chill in there and take tons of blows, people can also corner their opponents there, some…

it was the way Gabe won that surprised me after the trouble he gave jcc jr...if he fights w/in himself & not as an opponent vs some "name" he can do well...

Good performance, I'm happy for Rosado. This BKB stuff is only entertaining to me when they got guys who are at least semi-elite.
