Junior Middleweight Eric Mendez won his professional career in stellar fashion, stopping Jose Evangelista in the first round of a scheduled four round bout. Mendez floored Evangelista with two right hands, eventually finishing him off with a three-punch combination to the head. Referee Wayne Hedgepeth stopped the bout at 2:51. Evangelista was also making his professional debut.

Featherweight Alex Jimenez won a lopsided four round unanimous decision over Edgar Flores. Jimenez (2-0) was more aggressive as the bout progressed, stunning Flores (0-3) a number of times. However, Flores was able to survive until the final bell. All three judges scored the bout 40-36 in favor of Jimenez.
