Featherweight Miguel Flores, 8-0 ( 5 KOs), returned from a six-month layoff due to a knuckle injury to stop previously undefeated Rheno Nieto, 2-1 (2 KOs), in the fourth round at the Houston Club. Flores, 18, mercilessly zeroed in on the torso with left hooks and straight rights from the opening bell, while Nieto, 21, ferociously returned fire with both fists. Seconds before the end of the first round, Nieto caught Flores with a right to the head that stopped him in his tracks. A crunching left hook to the ribcage dropped Nieto to a knee in the second round. Nieto beat the count, and although visibly still hurt, he gamely fought Flores off and survived the round. Flores continued to viciously pummel to the body in the third, and by the fourth Nieto was completely depleted and fighting on guts alone. After two more knockdowns courtesy of body punches, referee Gary Simon mercifully called a halt to the bout. The fight was staged by Savarese Boxing Promotions.

Junior welterweight KC Martinez remained undefeated at 5-0 (4 KOs) after stopping Guillermo Martinez, 1-1 (1 KO), in the fourth round. KC, a southpaw, strategically circled the ring and counterpunched as the aggressive Guillermo pressed the action and tried to force KC into a brawl. A series of straight lefts stunned Guillermo in the fourth and KC pounced on him with a barrage of unanswered shots, prompting referee Gary Simon to stop the fight.

Light heavyweight Cedric Agnew raised his record to 12-0 (5 KOs) when he dropped David Robinson, 26-63-4 (14 KOs), for the full count with a left-right-left hook to the chin in the opening round.

Heavyweight Steve Collins, 24-1 (17 KOs), battered haplessly undersized Shannon Caudle, 9-2 (8 KOs), into submission in the second round. Collins simply walked down the smaller man and bludgeoned him with body shots, dropping him twice in the second round.

Heavyweight Fred Allen, 10-0 (6 KOs), outpointed Andrew Greely, 14-35-3 (8 KOs), over four rounds.

Light heavyweight Tecumesh Manuel made a successful pro debut stopping Darius Shorter, 1-3 (1 KO) in the second round after Shorter appeared to have dislocated his right shoulder from throwing a wild uppercut.
