StubHub Center, Carson, California - In a battle of unbeaten featherweights, Julian Ramirez stopped Abraham Rubio in the first round of a scheduled four round bout.

Ramirez (9-0, 5 KOs) pressed the action from the opening bell, throwing and mostly landing wild punches to the head. Rubio countered him as much as he could, but would get stunned every so often with a Ramirez punch. Rubio (3-1-1, 1 KO) was able to land an occasional right hand to the head, but the punches did not look as though they affected Ramirez.

Towards the end of the round, Ramirez was able to land a right hand that sent Rubio back against the ropes. Ramirez followed up and landed a number of punches on a hurt Rubio, prompting referee Raul Caiz, Jr. to step in and stop the bout at 2:58.

In his toughest bout on paper, junior welterweight Antonio Orozco had no problems with Ivan Hernandez, stopping him in the third round of a scheduled 10 round bout.

Orozco (18-0, 14 KOs ) boxed well from the outside, patiently setting up his combinations. Hernandez (29-4, 22 KOs ) tried to counter, but was constantly beaten to the punch.
An Orozco combination dropped Hernandez to one knee in the third round. No sooner than he recovered from the knockdown, Hernandez was back on the canvas courtesy of an Orozco combination.
The third and final knockdown followed soon thereafter. Hernandez was greeted with a combination to the head, once again knocking him off his feet. Referee Raul Caiz, Sr. saw enough and ended the fight.

2012 United States Olympian Joseph Diaz Jr. was too much for Noel Mendoza, stopping him in the third round of a scheduled six round featherweight bout.

The southpaw Diaz (7-0, 5 KOs) dominated the fight with effective three and four-punch combinations. Mendoza (6-3-1, 1 KO) could not mount any real offense other than a counter right or left as Diaz pressed forward and putting him on the defensive.

In the third round, Diaz dropped Mendoza with a counter left cross, left uppercut combination to the head. Mendoza got up, but it was only a matter of time before Diaz would go in for the kill.

Moments later, a left-right combination dropped Mendoza, prompting referee Raul Caiz, Jr. to stop the bout at 2:29 of round three.

Heavyweight Dominic Breazeale knocked out Lenroy Thomas in the fourth round of a scheduled eight round bout.

The taller Breazeale (6-0, 6 KOs) utilized his size and reach whenever Thomas would get on the inside. However, the southpaw Thomas, who had not fought in over two years, was able sneak in a counter left hand to the head or right hook to the body. As the bout progressed, Thomas (16-3, 8 KOs) started to look tired, throwing less punches and was not willing to exchange.

In the fourth round, Breazeale landed a right to the body, backing him up against the ropes. After trapping Thomas in a corner and throwing and landing at will, Breazeale landed a right uppercut to the head after a body punch, dropping Thomas to one knee. Thomas watched referee Thomas Taylor count him out at 2:29

Featherweight prospect Rey Vargas (15-0, 14KOs), trained by Nacho Beristain, knocked out Filipino veteran Juanito Rubillar (49-22-7, 24KOs) in the fourth round. Vargas was much taller (appeared to be 5'9) than the 5'3 Rubbilar. He controlled Rubillar in every round. Vargas began to let his hands go in the fourth, catching Rubillar with a big shot that dropped him down to his knees for the count. Vargas weighed 122.6, close to the super bantamweight limit for this fight.

In a super bantamweight contest - Jesus Ruiz (29-5-5, 21KOs) won an eight round unanimous decision over Enrique Quevedo (14-6-1, 9KOs). The scores were 79-73, 79-73, 78-74.

Super middleweight prospect Ronald Gavril (6-0, 4KOs) destroyed Dave Courchaine (2-3, 2KOs) in two rounds. Gavril dropped Courchaine twice in the contest before the referee had mercy and waved off the contest.

Super middleweight Lanell Bellows (5-0, 4KOs) went the distance for the first time in his career and won a four round unanimous decision over journeyman Leshon Sims (5-16, 3KOs).
