Former light heavyweight contender Otis Griffin (24-10-2) delighted a hometown crowd with a second-round technical knockout over Adam Collins (11-8) of Ironton, Ohio, in Friday night’s main event, highlighting the first professional boxing card at Sacramento’s Double Tree Hotel. Griffin, scoring knockdowns in both rounds before the referee’s stoppage at 1:22, ended a four-bout losing streak. Collins, experiencing another quick exit in the scheduled eight-rounder, had not fought past the first round in four previous fights, winning just once.

In scheduled four-round preliminaries involving primarily other Northern California fighters, Alonso Loeza stopped Juan Martinez in the third round, welterweights; Alberto Torres won a unanimous decision over Christian Silva, featherweights; Jose Alvarez won a split decision over Gregorio Viramontes, super-middleweights; John Abella stopped Misael Martinez in the second round, super-bantamweights; and Michael Ortega fought to a draw with Cleven Ishe, middleweights.
