In his first bout since losing to Manny Pacquiao 20 months ago, former world champion Joshua Clottey (36-4, 21 KOs) got back into the win column with a second round TKO over Calvin Green (21-6-1, 13 KOs). A beautiful left hook to the jaw dropped Green and left him unable to continue. Time was 1:56.

Unbeaten lightweight Mickey Bey Jr (18-0-1, 9 KOs) won an eight round unanimous decision over veteran Hector Velazquez (51-17-3, 35 KOs). Velazquez dropped Bey hard in round two and Bey barely survived the round but was able to recover. Scores were 76-75, 78-73, 77-74.

Jr middleweight Jose “Barretas” Pinzon (20-2-1, 12 KOs) took an eight round unanimous decision over Larry Smith (10-8, 7 KOs) by scores of 79-72 on all cards.

Unbeaten welterweight Wale Omotoso (20-0, 17 KOs) won an eight round decision over Lanardo Tyner (25-5-2, 15 KOs)

Light heavyweight Marcus Johnson (20-1, 15 KOs) punished super tough journeyman Billy Bailey (10-12, 4 KOs) for six rounds in a one-sided unanimous decision. Scores were 60-53, 60-53, 60-52. No knockdowns, but Bailey was deducted a point for losing his mouthpiece.

Super featherweight Ivan Otero (7-0, 1 KO) won a majority decision over Gino Escamilla (5-11-1, 2 KOs). Scores were 38-38, 39-37, 40-36.

Featherweight Luis Zarazua (2-0, 1 KO) outpointed Ricardo Avila (1-6, 0 KOs) over four. Scores were 40-36 on all cards.

Pro debuting welterweight Alex Saucedo scored an explosive first round KO over Cedric Sheppard (0-2).
