Another quick one for ex-WBO heavyweight champion Shannon Briggs. Briggs (50-5-1, 44 KOs) needed just 20 seconds to demolish Dominque Alexander (19-9-1, 9 KOs) on Friday night at the Capitale Ballroom in New York City. Briggs landed two left hooks to the body and Alexander went down and couldn’t get up steady, prompting the referee to call a halt.

Unbeaten junior welterweight Mike Faragon (11-0, 5 KOs) scored a fourth round TKO over Francisco Pallacios (4-11-5, 1 KO). Pallacios did not come out for start of the fifth. There were no knockdowns. Faragon dominated the four rounds.

Junior middleweight Sadam Ali (7-0, 3 KOs) won a four round unanimous decision over Martinus Clay (13-26-4, 5 KOs). All three judges scored the card 40-36. Ali was a 2008 Olympian.
