Diaz Stops Zepeda at the End of Eight

Former IBA super lightweight champion, Coachella’s favorite son and local hero Antonio “Toño” Diaz relived glory days past, as he once more packed in the Fantasy Springs Casino to battle and defeat the always game, tough but paper-thin-skinned Ernesto “Baby” Zepeda, 39-15-4 (34), in the Golden Boy Promotions/Telefutura main event on Friday night.
 
Diaz, a notorious slow starter, was outworked in the first couple of rounds, as Zepeda put together punches in bunches.. The latter ultimately got rocked by hard shots in the second round, almost going down against the ropes.
 
Diaz began to warm up by the fourth, getting his punches in and finally busting up Zepeda over his left eye.
 
The middle rounds could have gone either way, as Zepeda put in the flashier shots against the heavier, thudding punches landed by Diaz.
 
Zepeda’s best round came in the seventh, as Diaz allowed his opponent to tee-off at will, getting punched from every angle upstairs while dropping his guard.

The end came effectively in the eighth round, as the body work took its toll, sending Zepeda down twice (the first time was ruled a push by referee Jose Cobian and a slip along the ropes spelled the second time).
 
In reality, the punishment was the real culprit, as Zepeda’s corner recognized the peril and waved off the contest in between rounds.
 
With the win, Diaz record stands at 47-6-1 with 30 KOs, as this fight was billed his farewell fight.
 
Osuna Stops Rodriguez in Four
 
In the first fight of the night, super welterweight Angel Osuna, 5-3-1 (3), looked impressive in dissecting a very tough Raul Rodriguez, 2-7-1 (1), in four rounds. Osuna went to the body, pinned Rodriguez against the ropes and landed jolting uppercuts. Rodriguez had enough and dropped from the accumulation of punches, as referee Tony Crebs stopped the fight with 25 seconds remaining in the fourth frame.
 
Cancio Stops Brownfield in Four
 
In a fast-paced lightweight outing, Andrew Cancio sent Lowell Brownfield down twice, with referee Tony Crebs ending the contest at 1:49 of the fourth round. Brownfield simply got hit way too much with clean shots against the ropes, offering no defense.
 
Pro debuting super lightweight Kenny Williams dropped Marcos Rojas (also in his pro debut) three times en route to referee Jose Cobian stopping the one-sided beating with 40 seconds remaining in the second round.
 
Featherweight Humberto Zatarain, 3-0, dropped his opponent Rocco Espinoza several times en route to a unanimous 38-34 four-round decision.
