In a stunning upset, unheralded Miguel Vazquez (25-3, 12 KOs) outworked previously unbeaten WBA #5/WBC #7 lightweight Breidis Prescott (21-1, 18 KOs) to win a ten round split decision on Friday night at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Prescott, best known for his one round KO of Amir Khan, dropped Vazquez with a jab in round one, but the awkward Vazquez gave Prescott fits for the rest of the fight. Vazquez was able to repeatedly score while frustrating Prescott whose eye was badly swollen at the end. Scores were 95-94, 96-93 for Vazquez, 97-92 Prescott.
Former world amateur champion Erislandy Lara (7-0, 4 KOs) won a six round unanimous decision over veteran Darnell Boone (16-12-2, 6 KOs) in an eight-round super welterweight bout Scores were 59-55, 60-54, 60-54.
Two-time Olympic gold medal winner (Sydney 2000, Athens 2004) Guillermo Rigondeaux (2-0, 2 KOs) took out Roberto Guillen (4-3-3, 0 KOs) with a body shot at 2:57 of round one in a super bantamweight bout.
2004 Olympic silver medal winner Yudel Jhonson (2-0, 1 KO) outpointed Justin Paulo (1-1, 0 KOs) in a one-sided four-round super welterweight bout. Scores were 40-36 on all cards.
