Undefeated Worcester, MA super middleweight, Edwin “La Bomba” Rodriguez (22-0, 15 KOs), who moved one step closer towards his opportunity to fight for a world championship, kept his record perfect as he stopped previously unbeaten Jason Escalera (13-1-1, 12 KOs) at 0:12 seconds of round number eight in the main event of this past Saturday night’s HBO “Boxing After Dark” from the MGM Grand Theatre at Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Mashantucket, CT. Former three time world champion Vic Darchinyan (38-5, 27KOs) added another accolade to his resume as he scored a dominant unanimous decision victory over a game Luis Orlando Del Valle (16-1, 11 KOs) to claim the vacant NABF super bantamweight title. Scores of the bout were 99-91 twice and 96-94 in an all action bout. Antonin Decarie (27-1 8 KOs) scored big with a TKO victory at 2:54 of the sixth round destroying previously unbeaten Alex Perez (16-1 9 KOs) with a TKO victory at 2:54 of the sixth round.
