Lightweight contender Urbano Antillon (27-1, 20 KOs) scored a third round stoppage of Luis “Vampiro” Arceo (22-10-2, 15 KOs) after their bout was halted due to a bad cut suffered by Arceo. The cut was ruled to be caused by a punch, so TKO Antillon. Time was 2:25.

Unbeaten super lightweight “Son of the Legend” Omar Chavez moved to 20-0, 14 KOs after destroying Rodrigo Juarez (15-11, 6 KOs) with a left hook at 1:44 of round one.
