By Kurt Wolfheimer at ringside

Unbeaten super featherweight Joel Diaz (11-0, 10 KOs) scored a second round TKO over Guillermo Sanchez (13-7-1, 5 KOs) on Saturday night at Bally’s in Atlantic City. Diaz wobbled Sanchez at the end of the second round and Sanchez’ corner decided between rounds that he could no longer continue.

Unbeaten jr middleweight Glen Tapia (15-0, 9 KOs) made quick work of Franklin Gonzalez (15-11, 10 KOs). Tapia dropped Gonzalez twice, the second time for the count. Time was 2:02.

In an upset, heavyweight Dorsett Barnwell won a six round split decision over previously unbeaten Joey Dawejko (7-1-1, 3 KOs). Scores were 58-56 twice for Barnwell, 59-55 for Dawejko.

Heavyweight Patrick Farrell (8-1-1, 4 KOs) recovered from a first round knockdown to stop Wayne Hampton (5-6, 3 KOs) in round three.

Jr middleweight Thomas “Cornflake” Lamanna (9-0, 5 KOs) stayed unbeaten (barely) with a split nod over Yolexcy Leiva (5-4, 4 KOs)
