Off TV fight: Hometown fighter Randy Caballero, (18-0, 10 KOs), dispatched Luis Maldonado, (38-10-1, 29 KOs) 39 seconds into round four of a scheduled ten round junior featherweight bout. Caballero was in control early, scoring a first round knockdown, but Maldonado came alive in round three, outworking his younger foe. A quick flurry to the head dropped Maldonado again in round four. Maldonado rose on steady legs ready to fight but referee Ray Corona inexplicably waved the bout off, prematurely ending a fight that seemed to be heating up.

Not a lot of action as Rios prevailed 100-90, 97-93, 96-94.
