Welterweight Breidis Prescott (23-2, 19 KOs) scored a ten round unanimous decision over Harrison Cuello (19-13-3, 14 KOs) at Chicago’s UIC Pavilion. Prescott, best known for his spectacular first round knockout of current world champion Amir Khan in 2008, scored a knockdown in round nine and went on to a 98-91, 99-90, 99-90 win.

Comebacking Chicago heavyweight Mike Mollo (20-3-1, 12 KOs) could only manage an eight round majority draw against Gary Gomez (18-11-2, 7 KOs). Scores were 77-75 Mollo and 76-76 twice. The draw snapped Gomez’ four fight losing streak.

Junior welterweight prospect Patrick Lopez (20-2, 12 KOs) battered previously unbeaten Prenice Brewer (15-1-1, 6 KOs) until the bout was waved off at 2:38 of round two.

Lightweight Antonio Avila (3-1-1, 1 KO) dropped unbeaten Russell Fiore (4-0-1, 4 KOs) in round one, but Fiore scored a knockdown just before the final bell to salvage a majority draw. Scores were 37-37 on two cards and 38-36 for Avila.

The card was presented by Chicago’s 8 Count Productions in association with Vega Boxing.
