IN OTHER RESULTS: A wild night at Twin River Casino ended with a dramatic finish and a new champion crowned in the super welterweight division.

Fighting with a heavy heart, Edwin Soto (12-2-2, 6 KOs) of New Haven, Conn., stunned the Twin River crowd with a second-round knockout win over Ray Oliveira Jr. (9-2) of New Bedford, Mass., in the main event to capture the vacant World Boxing Union (WBU) Canadian American Mexican Title. 

Soto got Oliveira’s attention early with a series of clean lefts and then cracked Oliveira again early in the second round, causing his opponent’s knees to momentarily buckle. Smelling blood in the water, Soto closed in, backed Oliveira into the corner and bombarded him with rights and lefts upstairs until referee Steve Smoger stopped the bout 20 seconds into the round. The scheduled eight-round main event highlighted CES Boxing’s 2018 season opener, which streamed on Facebook via FIGHTNIGHT LIVE.
