The card was headlined by Brandon Figueroa (17-0-0, 12 KOs) of Weslaco, TX against Columbian Oscar Escandon (25-5-0, 17 KOs) in an action-packed 10-round super bantamweight bout that ended with a knockout by the young prospect Figueroa in the final round live.

Both Figueroa and Escandon picked up the pace early as they went toe-to-toe battling in an entertaining fight from the first bell. Figueroa, who typically fights at a distance, wanted to make a statement that he isn't afraid to fight on the inside.

An accidental head butt caused a large cut over the left eye of Figueroa, as blood poured the remainder of the fight. The combatants continued to throw high volumes of punches throughout the bout, but Figueroa remained more accurate and active as Escandon did his best to stay strong.

In the tenth and final round, Figueroa sealed the win with a powerful combination that ended in a right upper cut to Escandon's chin, sending him to the canvas rendering him unable to stand at minute 1:42.

So this was the first Joyce fight I watched. Slow and prodding. This guy would get murdered by any top 10 heavyweight.
