Now campaigning as a featherweight, former flyweight, superfly and bantamweight titleholder Vic Darchinyan (39-5-1, 28 KOs) scored a spectacular fourth round KO of Javier Gallo (18-7-1, 10 KOs) on a rainy Saturday night outdoors at the Uni-Trade Stadium in Laredo, Texas. In a wild round two, Darchinyan dropped Gallo twice, then got rocked himself before knocking down Gallo again. The bout was stopped at :26 of round four after Darchinyan dropped Gallo again. Darchinyan could now be headed toward an August 3 world title shot against WBC super bantamweight king Victor Terrazas in Mexico City on the undercard of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.’s comeback fight.

Unbeaten super featherweight Oscar Valdez (5-0, 4 KOs), who represented Mexico in both the 2008 and 2012 Olympics, won impressively as expected against Rocco Espinoza (4-7, 0 KOs). Valdez dropped Espinoza three times in round one and the bout was waved off at 2:58.

Unbeaten jr middleweight Khurshid Abdullaev (6-0, 3 KOs) knocked out Khalik Memminger (6-10-3, 3 KOs) with a big left hook in round three. Time was :38.

Super middleweights Radames Montes (2-2-1, 2 KOs) and Martinez Porter (1-3-2, 0 KOs) battled to a four round draw. Scores were 39-37 (Porter), 39-37 (Montes) and 38-38.

Unbeaten super bantamweight Adam Lopez (6-0, 2 KOs) won a four round unanimous decision over Manuel Rubalcava (1-4, 0 KOs) by scores of 39-37 on all cards.

Unbeaten middleweight Rolando Garza (3-0, 1 KO) topped Roberto Lara (0-3) by unanimous decision in a four-rounder. All three cards were 40-36.
