Both Sacramento entries, light-heavyweight Otis Griffin and middleweight Brandon Gonzales, won their feature bouts in decisive fashion Saturday night in Fallon, Nev.

In the eight-round main event at the outdoor fairgrounds venue, Griffin (23-6-2), ranked 10th by the International Boxing Federation, posted a unanimous decision over Billy Bailey (10-10) of Bakersfield in the eight-round main event. Judges’ scores were 79-73, 78-74, 78-74.

After scoring a first-round knockdown, Gonzales (13-0) halted Byron Tyson (9-2-2) of Los Angeles via a severe eye cut at 1:59 in the third round. It was Gonzales’ 10th knockout win in the scheduled six-rounder.
