By Francisco Salazar

StubHub Center, Carson, California - Making his first defense of the WBO super bantamweight title, Jessie Magdaleno (25-0, 18 KOs) blew away Adeilson Dos Santos (18-3, 14 KOs) in two rounds.

Magdaleno capture the title last November, when he won a twelve round unanimous decision over Nonito Donaire at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas on the Manny Pacquiao-Jessie Vargas undercard.

Dos Santos won two in a row since getting knocked out by Fabian Oscar Orozco in two rounds last March.

Dos Santos, who was fighting in the United States for the first time, had a height and reach advantage, but Magdaleno neutralized those immediately. Midway through round two, a right hook staggered Dos Santos.

Moments later, a left hand dropped Dos Santos hard to the canvas. Dos Santos was able to get up and tried to fight back, but was overwhelmed by Magdaleno's offense. A left-right to the top of Dos Santos' head dropped him to his knees, promoting referee Dr. Lou Moret to stop the fight at 2:51. WBO mandatory challenger Cesar Juarez was sitting ringside. 

Welterweight Mahonri Montes won a hard-fought 10 round split decision over fringe contender Francisco Santana. After a slow start, Montes (31-6-1, with 20 KOs) began to walk Santana down.

Montes did his best work in the middle rounds, especially during rotund five, when a left hook to the head dropped Santana. Montes continued to be at his best from the outside, while Santana connected more on the inside. Sensing he was down, Santana outlanded Monted during the final two rounds of the fight as Montes looked tired. One judge scored the bout 97-92 in favor of Santana, while the other two judges scored the bout 96-93 and 95-94 in favor of Montes. 

Welterweight Maxim Dadashev scored a one-punch knockout win over Bilal Mahasin. Dadashev (7-0, with 6 KOs) controlled the action before unleashing a left hook counter, dropping Mahasin (9-4-1, 1 KO) flat onto his back. As Mahasin struggled to get up, referee Thomas Taylor counted him out at 2:09 of round three.

Welterweight Alexander Besputin won a one-sided decision over Breidis Prescott. The southpaw Besputin (7-0, with 5 KOs) spent most of the fight walking Prescott down, attacking the body. It looked as though Besputin scored a knockdown of Prescott in round three, but it was ruled a slip. Besputin did score a clear knockdown at the end of round seven, courtesy of a left-right combination. All three judges scored the fight 80-71 in favor of Besputin.

Fazliddin Gaibnazarov made his pro debut a memorable one, surviving a knockdown to stop Victor Vazquez in the second round. Gaibnazarov, who won a gold medal at 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, was dropped within the first 20 seconds of the opening round.

He recovered to control the action as his thudding punches began to have an impact on Vasquez (7-3, 3 KOs). Gaibnazarov eventually dropped Vazquez in round two from a right-left combination. Vazquez beat the count but referee Eddie Hernandez waved the fight off at 1:28.
