In the main event of Cappiello Promotions “Showdown at Early Sunset” at the Roxy in Boston, the New England junior featherweight title fight between Mike Oliver (21-2-1, 7 KOs) and Castulo Gonzalez (9-8, 3 KOs) ended in a second round no decision when a cut over Gonzalez eye forced a halt to the bout. Referee Dick Flaherty ruled that the injury was the result of an accidental clash of heads.
In the co-feature bout former world title challenger Elvin Ayala (20-3, 9 KOs) dropped a very game Eddie Caminero (5-2, 5 KOs) twice in the third round, resulting in a third round TKO (:41 seconds). Ayala looked very sharp in his second fight back since his loss to Arthur Abraham.
In a special undercard attraction, junior welterweight prospect “Irish” Danny O’Connor (7-0, 2 KOs) continued his winning ways with a unanimous decision victory over Canada’s Sebastien Hamel (10-19, 1 KO). All three judges had the bout scored 60-54.
