Unbeaten welterweight Frankie Gomez (15-0, 11 KOs) cruised to a one-sided decision unanimous win over Lanard Lane (13-3, 8 KOs) on Saturday night at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Gomez was never in danger and fought Lane in spurts throughout the ten round title tilt. The judges’ scores were 98-92, 100-90 and 100-90.

Undefeated lightweight Mickey Bey (19-0-1, 10 KOs) flattened Roberto Rodriguez with a devastating left hook to end the fight by knockout at 1:07 in the third round. Bey sent Rodriguez to the canvas early in the final round with the same punch. With the win, Bey looks to face Ricky Burns next.

2012 Olympian Joseph “Jo Jo” Diaz Jr. (2-0, 1 KO) scored a second round KO over Jose Ruiz (2-3) in a bantamweight match-up. Ruiz was down twice. Time was 2:03.

Unbeaten Badou Jack used a big body shot to extend his record to 12-0 with 9 KOs, knocking out Jonuel Tapia (8-4-1, 5 KOs) in the night’s opening super middleweight bout.
