Lomachenko-Lopez - LIVE Results From MGM Grand Conference Center


LAS VEGAS – Jose Enrique Vivas overwhelmed John Vincent Moralde almost immediately Saturday night.

The Mexican veteran dropped Moralde twice and stopped him just one minute and 16 seconds into their scheduled eight-round featherweight fight at MGM Grand Conference Center. Vivas, of Montebello, California, improved to 20-1 and produced his 11th knockout on the Vasiliy Lomachenko-Teofimo Lopez undercard.

The Philippines’ Moralde Moralde (23-4, 13 KOs) lost by knockout for the second time in his past four fights.

Moralde went down 34 seconds into the fight, after Vivas landed a left to the body while they were wrestling for position. Moralde got up, but their fight didn’t last much longer.


A left hook up top wobbled Moralde 1:08 into the opening round and backed him into the ropes. Vivas then hammered him with a left hook to the body that sent Moralde to the canvas again.

Referee Celestino Ruiz waved an end to the action as soon as Moralde went down again.

Earlier Saturday night, Quinton Randall couldn’t hurt Jan Carlos Rivera, but he consistently landed right hands and regularly used his legs to stay out of Rivera’s range.

Randall consequently beat Rivera by unanimous decision in their six-round welterweight fight at MGM Grand Conference Center. Judges Adalaide Byrd (59-55), Max De Luca (58-56) and Patricia Morse Jarman (58-56) all scored their fight for Randall.

Houston’s Randall improved to 7-0 (2 KOs). Rivera, a Puerto Rican southpaw who fights out of Philadelphia, lost for the first time as a pro (4-1, 4 KOs, 1 NC).

Randall hit Rivera with a short right very early in the sixth round and quickly moved out of Rivera’s punching range. A straight right by Randall landed with just over 30 seconds left in the fifth round.

A thudding left by Rivera backed Randall into Rivera’s corner with 40 seconds to go in the fourth round. Randall connected with a short right on the inside a minute into the fourth.

Randall landed right hands and avoided Rivera’s counters twice within the last 30 seconds of the third round.

Rivera moved Randall into the ropes and attacked his body with just under two minutes remaining in the second round. Rivera’s left hand got Randall’s attention at about the halfway point of the second round.

Backed against the ropes, Randall landed an overhand right with just over two minutes to go in the opening round.

Jahi Tucker wasn’t matched easy in the first fight Saturday night, yet he won in his second pro appearance.

The 17-year-old prospect handled Charles Garner’s pressure and toughness well enough, though, to win their four-round welterweight bout by unanimous decision. Judges Glenn Feldman (40-36), Lisa Giampa (40-36) and Dave Moretti (40-36) each scored what was a competitive fight a shutout for Tucker.

Tucker, of Deer Park, New York, improved to 2-0. Buffalo’s Garner, 26, slipped to 1-1.

Garner landed a straight right just before the midway mark of the fourth round. A left hook by Garner made Tucker retreat with about 45 seconds to go in the fight.

Tucker landed in combination while working off his back foot with just under two minutes to go in the third round. Garner kept coming forward, though, and landed a left hook with just under a minute remaining in the third round.

Tucker drilled Garner with a thudding right to the body with just over 30 seconds to go in the second round. Tucker’s left up top several seconds later knocked out Garner’s mouthpiece, which eventually caused a brief break in the action.

Tucker connected with a right-left combination with about 45 seconds to go in the first round. Garner, backed against the ropes, landed a flush left hook that Tucker took well toward the end of the first round.

Garner wildly threw a left hook at Tucker as soon as their fight started. Garner’s punch miss, which forced him to use his gloves from falling to the canvas.
