A left hand body shot in the seventh doubled the Puerto Rican in his own corner and referee Jack Reiss called the fight at 2:06 of the round as the fighter failed to make it to his feet in time.
In other results, in the most entertaining, show-stealing fight of the Fox Sports Net/Fox Deportes broadcast, super featherweight Eric Ituarte, 5-0-1 (1), and Humberto Zatarain battled to a draw.
Wile pounding each other heavily throughout the entire bout, it seemed Zatarain, 3-1-2, would pull out the decision due to the better quality and more shots landed in the bout. However, the judges all begged to differ, calling the fight a 38-38 draw on all cards.
2012 Olympian, super bantamweight Joseph “JoJo” Diaz Jr., 6-0 (4), went home early after dispatching Luis Cosme, 8-3-1 (3), with a demolishing body shot at 2:09 of the first frame.
Another 2012 Olympian, super lightweight southpaw Errol Spence, 7-0 (6), did away with Eddie Cordova, 4-5-1 (1), with a body shot at 2:13 of the first round of a scheduled six.
Junior middleweight Angel Osuna, 11-3-1 (7), stopped Salt Lake City, Utah’s Christian Nava, 2-4-1, in two rounds of a scheduled six. Going through the paces, the taller, leaner Osuna was caught a few times with wide shots by Nava in the first round.
During an exchange, a hard shot by Osuna busted open Nava upstairs, making it a bloody, messy affair thereafter.
Trying hard to come back from the injury, Nava was caught with a violent shot to the nose, seemingly breaking it. As he dropped to his knees, the fighter would be counted out by referee Jack Reiss at 2:08 of the second round.
In a bout featuring heavyweight debutants, Alex Rivera dropped then stopped C.J. Leveque at 2:07 of the first round in the first bout of the evening.
